The Cincinnati Reds rest at the all-star break with the most team runs scored in the National League. The following table summarizes the offensive production at each position for the team and for the National League, including where the Reds rank in the league at each position.
|POS||Reds OBP||SLG||OPS||NL OBP||SLG||OPS||Reds rank (OPS)|
We’re obviously all aware of the struggle at shortstop and hope that Zack Cozart can provide some remedy to that.
An interesting note about left field: each of the 3 left fielders have an OPS greater than the team LF OPS of .709.
–Jonny Gomes (.763)
–Chris Heisey (.773)
–Fred Lewis (.719)
Gomes actually has his best split (.810) while playing left field. Heisey and Lewis have put up great numbers while playing other positions or pinch hitting, but have posted just a .660 and .586 OPS, respectively, when manning left field.
The only “position” that the Reds rank first in the league is pinch hitting. The Reds currently have the fewest PH plate appearances in the National League, but their pinch hitters have scored the most runs and had the most RBI’s.
