Salty rebound
June 6th, 2011 by czar

Since May 1st, Saltalamacchia has a .257/.304/.541/.844 slash. That’s with a .267 BABIP which (if anything) is a hair too low given his batted ball profiles. If you want to really cherry-pick, he’s sporting a .300/.352/.680/1.032 since May 11th (54 PA, .278 BABIP)

His plate discipline hasn’t gotten any better (16:4 K:BB since 5/1, 9:3 since May 11– although this means K% is down and way down since April) but he his cumulative stats now have him mid-pack in AL C OPS (with April #’s included) and he’s been a top 2 AL catcher (by OPS, only behind Olivo of all people) during the outburst detailed above.

For those whose posts serve as the inspiration of my epiphanies and rants, do not be angry, but merely, be honored that you have achieved such status. Names will never be revealed. Feedback appreciated, as this is a work in progress.
