medium.com: The Outfield Assist: An Appreciation

Nowadays, the outfield assist is an afterthought on the diamond; a throwaway stat that’s never even been good enough for a baseball card. Few of the advanced or sabermetric stats give the assist much weight.

And for good reasons probably, but they’re always fun to watch. If a team can find a good enough center fielder to make up for the [probable] hitting deficit, they probably should for the purposes of providing an entertaining team to watch.
