These Cleats Are Made For Walking: Hey Adam Jones

So basically, Orioles outfielder Adam Jones hasn’t drawn a walk since May 18th.

That’s 174 consecutive plate appearances without drawing a walk.

He’s now got a 66-8 K/BB ratio through 359 plate appearances.

COME ON ADAM. YOU’RE GOOD AT BASEBALL. DO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT SORTA SHOWS THAT YOU’RE GOOD AT BASEBALL. LIKE ONCE. PLEASE. kthxbye.

In other news…

  • Zack Greinke drew his third walk of the year. He’s got three walks, three strikeouts and six hits in 27 plate appearances. Not bad.
  • Wil Myers, Royals  Rays uber-prospect has only walked once through his first 55 plate appearances. I’ll be watching him 74% more closely now.
  • Outfielders David Lough, Juan Lagares and Joaquin Arias have combined for nine walks through 361 plate appearances. They’ve also combined for 66 strikeouts. This compares almost identically to Adam Jones’ ratio stated above.
  • Mariners outfielder Endy Chavez is the only player with over 200 plate appearances (211), and fewer than six walks (5). 
  • There are only two players with over 300 plate appearances and fewer than 12 walks. Cubs outfielder Alfonso Soriano (9 through 306) and White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez (11 through 333).
  • Joey Votto and Shin-Soo Choo are still far ahead of everyone. Votto’s leading the majors with 60 walks and Choo isn’t far behind with 57. Miggy Cabrera is in third at 48. Craziness.

See ya next week.
