Jeff in Memphis Redbirds, Palm Beach Cardinals, Quad Cities River Bandits, Springfield Cardinals
Let’s take a look at the early season stats for the hitters in the Cardinals system to see who is off to a hot start.
- Sugar Shane Robinson was hitting 400/435/600 before his outfield collision and orbital bone injury.
- Mark Hamilton’s 902 OPS earned himself a call up to St. Louis. He also lead the team with .469 OBP.
- Adron Chambers is next in OBP with .439.
- Ryan Jackson’s hot start is much heralded and he’s hitting 431/464/569. Those numbers should come down as the season progresses (.489 BABIP for one), but it is a great start as he’s hitting 35% line drives.
- Alex Castellanos leads the team with 3 HRs and .571 SLG.
- Aaron Luna’s .410 OBP got himself promoted to Memphis.
- Audry Perez leads the team in OPS with a 400/417/543 slash line, but he’s been getting a bit lucky with 10% line drives and an astronomical .448 BABIP.
- Zack Cox so far has a wOBA of .342, but if you adjust for park and batted ball rates that wOBA (wOBAr) jumps to .399.
- Alan Ahmady leads the team with a .426 OBP.
- In 12 at-bats, Oscar Taveras leads the team with 1.881 OPS. (I told you they were small sample sizes.)
- Cody Stanley is slashing 296/406/593 with hitting only 4% line drives.
- Jrod Part Deux has 8 walks so far for an OBP of .436.
