Kendrick has a .380 OBP

Recommended Posts

With that walk in the first inning, Kendrick has now walked 12 times this season, which means he is on pace to walk approximately 70 times this season.

 

Last year, he walked a total of 23 times.

In 2012, 29 times.

2011: 33. 

2010: 28

 

In short, he's never walked more than 33 times in a season, but he's already on pace to walk 70 times this season. If it's not a fluke, this is very good news. Has there been any word of Howie working on his plate discipline this season?

Don't tell him any of these stats. He can't be bothered with numbers.

I hate to be the buzzkill, but his O-Swing % is at 37.6%, 2.7% higher than his career average, albeit down slightly from his career worst 40.3% last year.  His current walk rate is, unfortunately, just a sample-size fluke.

The key to him having a high OBP is having a high batting average. The walks are just gravy. If he has a more than last year though, it would be nice. Say 50? I'd be really happy with that.

 

Last season he'd have had a .311 BA with 50 walks (*assuming the same number of hits and PA's). His OBP would have been .388 with 50 walks.

 

This year, it's even better as I said in another thread…Kendrick is hitting .345 with a .430 OBP and a .494 SLG against teams other than Seattle.
