I have some questions re this article. 17 homers in the Texas League. Is this that big a deal? How does Lindsey compare to big leaguers that hit that many when they were there? Just wondering if he's really a viable replacement for Kendrick.

Impressive HR totals based on the league & more importantly, the ballpark. Deep dimensions. Tough to hit them out there.

 

Heck, Mark Trumbo hit just 15 in 533 at bats in the Texas League, in the same ballpark.

It has a lot to do with the park.   The HR index for LHBs in Arkansas is 80 -- 100 being average.  For perspective, the HR index for LHBs in Anaheim is 88.   Tell you what's sick -- the HR index for RHB in Arkansas is 69.

 

One of the biggest mistake people tend to make when looking at minor league numbers is to try to translate the numbers to MLB averages.  Not only are there huge differences from park to park but also from league to league.  A .280 average in the PCL is meh..  some years it's actually bad, but that same .280 in the Midwest League is typically excellent.

 

Both the Angels' High A and AA parks are extreme pitchers parks in hitter friendly leagues -- people tend to look at the raw numbers and underrate the numbers as a result.  Of course, they also might make the mistake of overrating our pitchers as was the case with Ariel Pena and Johnny Hellweg.

Which just goes to show how ridiculous Grichuk's season was.

A ridiculous season? Not really.

 

.236/.292/.414 line at home (6 HRs)

.274/.318/.529 line on the road (16 HRs)

 

Cron actually had decent numbers at home and struggled on the road. Go figure.

 

.285/.326/.451 line at home (8 HRs)

.264/.312/.407 line on the road (6 HRs)

Think the point he was making is that Grichuk performed better than the raw stats showed.    When you consider he was two years below the league optimal age last year -- he had a very strong season that was masked by his home hitting environment.
