The Reds have had 780 opportunities to turn a double play, fewest in the league. The league average is 873. They have turned 83 double plays, fewest in the league. The league average is 98. Cincinnati converts double play opportunities at 11%. That is the league average.
1) They strike out 22.0% of the hitters, highest in the league. The league average is 19.7%
2) Their GB/FB ratio is .79. The league average is .87.
So, the pitchers keep off the bases, lowering opportunities. When opportunity arises, more strikeouts and less ground balls result in fewer actual opportunities. If you mix it all together I would say the Reds are about average at turning two. Simply having a league average double play opportunties would add about 10 to the team total. They would rank 10th. Less strikeouts and more ground balls would, no doubt, push that total higher.
Another way of looking at it is that, if double play opportunities appear at a consistent rate for whomever is playing second base, Brandon has turned (been the relay man) 32 GIDP in 4438 PA. Or 1 every 138 PA. All others that have played second have turned (been the relay man) 5 GIDP in 401 PA. Or 1 in every 80 PA. But the may be a sample size issue as much as anything.
