Another website was talking about a player and his future projection and concerns about it. One thing I brought up was his very low line drive rate and very high ground ball rate, and I thought to myself 'hey I wonder what Reds guys numbers look like', so I looked them up.


Player Ground Ball % Line Drive % Fly Ball % Pop Up %
Jay Bruce 41.9 15.5 36.4 6.1
Joey Votto 39.8 17.7 39.5 3.0
Javon Moran 56.0 13.8 24.3 6.0
Drew Stubbs 54.2 16.2 24.6 5.0
Chris Valaika 36.8 27.6 32.2 3.2
Paul Janish 47.1 10.5 34.5 7.8
Justin Turner 47.3 21.0 26.8 4.7
Drew Anderson 41.3 16.1 35.0 7.4
Chris Dickerson 45.5 11.7 36.7 6.0
Cody Strait 41.6 14.4 29.3 14.7


Anyways, its just really interesting stuff.

The more I find out about Valaika, the more I think he will be a stud.

Yeah, 27 % line drive rate is insanely high. Yeah, he was a college kid in rookie ball, but that is impressive no matter how you are looking at it.

Where'd you find that DD? I didn't know they had that kind of stuff for the minors.

SD, www.minorleaguesplits.com . I had to do the math myself, but it was fairly simple. Type in a player, check out his batting splits. G/L/F/P is the number of grounders, line drives, fly balls and pop ups hit. It is a rough system kind of because it is all based off of milb.com game logs, but its fairly reliable I guess.

Valaika -- wow.
Stubbs' numbers not bad for a guy with a lot of speed.
Cody Strait and pop-ups -- yikes.

Cool stuff -- thanks
