Quickie: Lagares’ SLG and bases per at-bat April 4, 2014

Posted by tomflesher in Baseball.

Through the Mets’ third game of this season, Juan Lagares and David Wright have been the core of the team’s offense. Lagares played in 121 games last season, putting up a near-replacement-level .242/.281/.352 line and hitting only 4 home runs but providing incredible value defensively.

This year, Lagares has thus far been a nice surprise. In three games and 13 plate appearances, Lagares has hit one home run, one triple, two doubles, and a single, for 12 total bases. He’s also walked once. His slugging percentage – total bases/at-bats – gives us 12/11, or 1.091. If you just take total bases and plate appearances, counting his walk as one base, he has 12 bases in 13 plate appearances. In other words, Lagares is averaging .92 bases per trip to the plate.
