Baseball Prospectus - Overthinking It, This Week in Catcher Framing, 7/14


Recommended Posts

BP article found here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=21210#commentMessage

 

Hank Conger continues to lead the list of catchers this year in framing pitches. Basically he is taking pitches that are outside the strike zone and getting the umpires to call them strikes on a consistently higher basis than his peer group.

 

Combine this with his upsurge in throwing runners out and his solid offensive game and you can make a solid argument for Hank picking up the lion's share of future starts both this year and next.

 

I think we have a good, solid catcher developing right before our eyes!

Funny that the article did not include one example of Congers work even though he was tops on their list.

 

Same could be said of Ianetta who is nearly the bottom of the list.

 

True I noticed that too but it is a weekly article they do so it may have just been the author selecting a couple of top candidates and highlighting them not as a more comprehensive look.
