RBI Opportunites report

Time for the first annual update of the D backs RBI Opportunities.

For those unfamiliar with this report, it is available to subscribers only at Baseball Prospectus. What this report does is simply add up how many runners have been on base during a players at bats, and see how many of them the player has driven in. (Not including himself should he hit a homer)

The "OBI"% is simply the percentage of others batted in, or the % of runners on base a hitter batted in. I find this stat to be a good proxy in place of where you might use BA W/RISP, because that stat has the same inherent flaws as batting avg....all hits count the same.

An infield hit with a runner on second that does not score the run gets the same credit as a bases loaded triple........I think you see the point

 

For some additional context:

Among all MLB players with a minimum of 120 Plate Appearances, Jackson ranks second behind only Josh Hamilton, who has a 27.4% rate.

Jackson led all D backs regulars in this category last year as well, with a 16. 9 % rate. (477 PA) That was second only to Tony Clark, who had a 17.6% rate, but of course only 245 PA's

Snyder, the next highest full time D Back player ranks 42'd in the majors

Eric Byrnes ranks 186th out of 227

SWEET!!
