They are middle of the pack in swing % at balls outside of the zone, and 28th in contact rate on those swings. So your eyes are likely not betraying you.

They are also near the bottom at swing % at balls inside the zone and contact% on those swings. So...yeah, that's not going to bode well for an offense.

Thanks SUPERCHARGED APE...that information sheds a bit more light on the subject.

I'm wondering if one the Pirate's favorite hobbies or things to do outside of baseball is fishing... 8-)
