James Jones

It’s about time that I gave James Jones his own post. As lead-off hitter for the Seattle Mariners, he had done remarkable work having broken through 10 runs created. He has done this in only 57 at bats. This works out to 6.6 runs created per game. To put that in perspective, Robinson Cano has 6.4 runs created per game. Everyone else who has played centerfield this year, in 133 at bats has created 9.6 runs.

At some point, word will get around the league, Jones will slump and he will need to make some adjustments. That could happen next week when the team travels to Tampa Bay, a team that has already seen him and allowed him to get 6 total bases in twelve at bats. For now, it will be nice to see the Mariners with a good lead-off hitter.
