Spring Standouts 2015

Featured imageNo one puts a whole lot of faith in to spring numbers and rightfully so, but that doesn’t mean it’s not fun to look at the numbers as long as you don’t take them too realistically. I like to look at batting average, hits, hormers, and RBI for hitters and just ERA and strike outs for pitchers. ERA isn’t a great indicator with the innings restrictions on these guys but at least we get an idea what’s working and what isn’t. Here are the standouts as of 3.25…

Also, let’s remember where Ryan Raburn ranked on these lists a few years ago and how that turned out…
