Vancouver Canadians Hitters Stats – July 2nd

Our first installment of the hitters stats. As the season is still only two weeks old, the numbers will be quite skewed by luck, BABIP, etc.  Things should start to normalize in another few weeks.  That being said, we shouldn’t ignore the start that Canadian catcher Mike Reeves has had to his pro career.  Yes, his BABIP is an unsustainable .500 but aside from a lack of power (something the entire team is afflicted with) he is doing all the little things right.  He’ll take a walk when it is offered, highlighted by his otherworldly 1.6 BB/K ratio, and he’s even gotten onto the C’s stolen base train with two in two attempts.

The list is filtered by wOBA which is a weighted value intended to produce an overall value of a player’s offensive production.  It is best described here.  The one problem I have with the stat is how easy is it to weight effectively for a league as transient as the Northwest.  I’ll endeavour to do some more research prior to next month’s update.
