Adam Jones Is Baseballs Most Effective Undisciplined Hitter
Adam Jones has been probably the most effective hitters in the Orioles lineup this coming year. With runners in scoring position Jones is hitting .321/.350/.493 with 55 RBI in 143 plate appearances. Not too shabby.
Jones 146 base-hits leads the league among centerfielders and his 85 RBI is 17 greater than any player at his position. Jones is batting .296 around the season, third as part of his position behind Pittsburghs Andrew McCutchen and Bostons Jacoby Ellsbury.
I really could sit here and continue spew stats about how effective Jones may be at the dish, despite his 0-for-14 in Arizona. The point that shines in my experience about Jones effectiveness is always that he’s posting impressive numbers despite seeing just 3.51 pitches per plate appearance this year.
Jones ranks seventh inside the league in fewest pitches seen per plate appearance this coming year.
