The Dodger Batter Who's Been Better Than Puig

by Zachary Levine


Three stat lines from June 3 through today. You know what to do, good people of the internet.

Player A: .348 BA, .471 OBP, .522 SLG, 1 HR, 16 BB, 19 K
Player B: .369 BA, .409 OBP, .571 SLG, 8 HR, 8 BB, 44 K
Player C: .389 BA, .446 OBP, .705 SLG, 10 HR, 15 BB, 20 K

Okay, time’s up.

Player A is Josh Satin, but that has nothing to do with this conversation. He’s just been awesome.

Player B you’ll probably recognize as Yasiel Puig, whose line encapsulates the entirety of his major league career as he debuted on June 3, 2013 (henceforth known as January 1, 1.)

Player C, whose line you probably don’t recognize unless you’re an avid Dodgers fan or know how to read a subhead on BaseballProspectus.com, is Hanley Ramirez. While Puig has gained most of the attention, and justifiably so given his novelty, athleticism, and tremendous story, it is Ramirez who has led the Dodgers to a 29-15 record since his return, a 23-5 stretch, and a sweeping move from 9.5 games out to division leaders in exactly one month.
