Weekly DRS Update (Defensive Stats Thru Jun 29, 2010)
This week’s update
Okay, I was a day late with this week’s update, but I was playing golf at Bethpage Black and Merion Golf Club this past weekend, so I had other priorities. My feet hurt after all that walking.
The American League leaders and trailers are about the same, with Brandon Inge and Brett Gardner joining Jose Lopez and Cliff Pennington near the top. Howie Kendrick still brings up the rear, with Jeter holding steady at -11 DRS.
In the National League, Chase Utley is still atop the rankings, but Matt Holliday has seen a charge up the standings like one rarely seen. Looking back at his performance, he seems to be picking up an extra run a week. Aki Iwamura is still low, but all that playing time for Cub rookie Starlin Castro has seen him surge into the lead as the most costly defender. Team-wise, the Phillies defense has surged back into contention for the best defense. Their title runs have been supported by strong defense, and they had struggled for the first two months, but have seen significant improvement in the last two weeks.
