MLB Central: Cat and Mouse Game | MLB.com (VIDEO)

Smoltz talks about the ability of Miguel Cabrera to make adjustments and the inability of Reggie Sanders to do the same. (Neither of them had a lot of success vs. Smoltz. Click the links.) This is a very interesting part of the game. It’s an area of the game that players and coaches know about but, to this point and to my knowledge, there are no metrics to quantify the ability of players to make adjustments. With Statcast equipment getting added to more and more minor league parks, I would think better quantifying this ability would give a team a slight advantage when making moves or advancing players. Don’t get me wrong, I know teams already make note of this ability. I’m talking about more systematically examining the ability of all players using big data.
