Here's a look at Pie's numbers in the Dominican, courtesy of Rotoworld
Felix Pie - OF Cubs
.239/.308/.385, 2 HR, 13 RBI, 28/10 K/BB, 6 SB in 109 AB
Rotoworld mentions a .650 OPS for the entire league this season, so Felix is at least average in that regard. His nearly 3:1 K:BB concerns me the most.
Too bad we don't have PITCHf/x for the DWL, but here's a look at his MLB data from 2007.
From the catcher's perspective you can see what Felix likes to swing at, and what he's done with it:
I'm stealing Josh's chart above, but the rest of this is from my own database.
Using my definitions for a strike zone, I use 42.24 in. as the top, ~19.44 in. as the bottom (measured from the ground) for Felix, and a 2ft. wide plate for everyone (based on someone else's research - I have it linked somewhere, just go read my entire blog :-) ).
So my zone is wider, but the vertical settings looks the same, as they are probably both from the average values from the raw data (mine are, for sure).
Check out the called strikes off the plate, and perhaps the 2ft. "zone as they actually call it" is more accurate.
14.2% of the pitches Felix saw were down, but "over"
48.1% were in the zone
5.6% were up but over
These numbers are wrong - updating in a new post.
He went after a third of the up and overs, with a contact rate of .333.
So, looking at the pitches over the plate, he likes the ball down, and does make a little more contact there (small sample size warning - n=324, and just 18 "up and over" pitches).
I'll take another look Felix, including pitches off the plate, later this week.
