Cabrera, Gregorius seemed solid — but these metrics say otherwise - NY Daily News

Although I’m sure the missing plays in Statcast will need to be address, I’m looking forward to seeing better data for infielders.

Routine plays are probably underrated - Beyond the Box Score

The distinct separation between Pederson’s starting points, marked by the bright blue dots, indicate a clear directive to differentiate between hitters (probably by simple handedness), and virtually every chart shows fielders adjusting their depth, within a range, based on who’s hitting.

How big are the gaps between those little dots? I’m not totally sure. But 15 or 20 feet of ground, gained more than a hundred times a season, adds up to something worth measuring.
