Post Cano8217s Curious Case
Back on June 24th, Yankees second-baseman Robinson Cano had the Rafael Belliard-esque slash line of .227/.270/.325. He was really a huge disappointment and seemed to be in the middle of a big part of the wrong direction. In the end, when his third season in the big leagues ended last year, it appeared that Cano might give Chase Utley a run for his money because the premier offensive keystone cornerman hanging around. If we know Jason Trusnik Jersey anything in regards to a players true talent level, though, it's that the player performing much, much worse than his pre-season projection with the first half is extremely prone to post much better numbers in the future.
It should come as no surprise then that, since June 24th, Cano has produced a .359 Jimmy Pruitt Jersey /.377/.573 slash line. He has never been someone to walk much, finishing both 2006 and 2007 in the ALs bottom ten in BB%, while currently ranking fourth lowest this year. His strikeouts, however, are occurring le s frequently this year. After finishing out of the top ten lowest strikeout rates in 2006 and 2007 he currently has got the fourth lowest rate.
Due for this he is putting balls in play at a higher rate this season and, whether a direct result or not, his BABIP has taken a significant hit. After coming in between .320 and .361 in the first 3 years, his current mark of .273 pales in contrast. It may not be significantly different from a statistics standpoint but the truth remains it's a big cause of his lower numbers. I initially thought this drop are closely related to some lower rate of line drives, but he has Coby Fleener Jersey actually hit them in a you can hear this year; his groundball rate has dropped, though. Additionally, his flyballs have increased while his HR/FB has dropped; after ranging between 10.4% and 12.3% these days it is just 7.8%.
Plugging him into each of the in-season projection systems produces the following:
Marcel: 65-211, 6 HR, .310/.352/ Austin Johnson Jersey .486, .838 OPSTotal: 170-605, 15 HR, .282/.319/.429, .748 OPS
ZiPS: 62-213, 6 HR, .291/.332/.451, .783 OPSTotal: 167-607, 15 HR, .275/.314/.417, .731 OPS
While both project the same quantity of home runs within the next 50-55 games, ZiPS has him posting a slugging percentage 35 points le s than the Marcel. Both seem to agree, though, or come relatively close to one another within the slash line and OPS departments when looking at his total seasonal line. Nate Stupar Jersey Unle s Cano absolutely destroys his in-season projection this is going to be a down-year for him, but he isn't as bad as his current numbers would lead us to believe. Next year will be the test to find out if he is able to recover or maybe this year is the beginning of an earlier downward trend.
