We’ve talked about the Total Zone Ratings already now available at minor league splits. You can read more about them here. These are the players who had the best gloves in the system last year, by position.
1B – Josh Phelps – 9 runs, 11 runs per 150 games
2B – Jose Martinez – 3, 5 p/150
3B – David Freese – 8, 12 p/150
SS – Pete Kozma – 11, 19 p/150
OF – Jon Jay 16, 25 p/150
OF – Antonio DeJesus 16, 36p/150
OF – Tommy Pham 10, 19p/150
Rasmus was 9 and 15 per 150, in case you were wondering.
- I’m rooting for Josh Phelps to win the 1B job for the Giants.
- Our depth at 2B is thin, thin, thin.
- Pete Kozma and Freese can pick it pretty well.
- Pham is a four tool stud missing one very important tool – the ability to make contact.
- DeJesus is flying under the radar a bit. Good OBP, great glove and no power whatsoever. Could grow into an interesting bench player.
- Jon Jay is the Chief Justice of Center Field.
