We’re about nine weeks into the 2013 season, and every player with at least 70 plate appearances have managed at least two walks. Doesn’t mean we can’t mock those at the bottom of my favorite leaderboard ! Let’s take a quick look.
Our all-time favorite Jeff Keppinger didn’t manage a single walk last week. He’s up to 190 plate appearances and still has only two walks.
We’re a little under two months into the 2013 regular season. Last week, we mourned the loss of White Sox second baseman Jeff Keppinger’s epic streak towards OBP disaster. And while his wRC+ remains at a staggeringly low 19, we can’t marvel at his incompetence quite as much anymore. However, he does remain the only qualified hitter in baseball with only two walks. And he’s up to 172 plate appearances.
We’re about a month into the season now, and it’s Monday morning. So let’s check in again.
Through a total of 688 plate appearances and 193 games played, Welington Castillo, Rajai Davis, Jeff Keppinger, Endy Chavez, A.J. Pollock, Salvador Perez, Andres Torres, Juan Pierre, Rick Ankiel and Luis Cruz have combined for a mind-numbingly awful SEVEN WALKS.
