    I grabbed Yandy Diaz because he had assured playing time at a position I needed covered. So far it has been great, though he's faded a bit lately.

    In any event, FG did an article.

    He's been mentioned but his BABIP is .545. Also, 3 IFH already.

    You mean AL MVP Tim Anderson?

    The one walk in 49 ABs scares me a bit, but why take pitches when you have a .545 BABIP?

    Checking back in on Beckham. He WAS a former top pick (and TB, relative to a lot of teams, knows how to draft) and seems to have found a home where he doesn't have to worry about playing time, more than doubled his career walk rate (6-ish% to 13-ish%), launch angle and exit velo up, etc.

    Also, glad to see I own Domingo Santana and Boyd on this list, too. Santana and Beckham are obviously energized by this better-than-expected M's lineup.
    12-team mixed keeper. 6x6 (OBP, QS the extra categories).

    C- J.McCann
    1B-Votto
    2B- Villar
    SS- Andrus
    3B-Baez
    MI-L. Gurriel
    CI- Y.Gurriel
    OF- Blackmon, Betts, Benintendi, J.Dyson
    UTIL- D.Santana
    BENCH: Buxton
    SP: Verlander, M. Boyd, Bumgarner, JA Happ, Hendricks
    RP: Yates, Greene, C.Martinez, Oberg, Bummer, N.Anderson
    IL: Pence, Cron, Scherzer

    I had a mental block for a minute on how that is possible. Took me a minute to remember sac flies don't count against BA.

    Ernie Bowman, a middle infielder for the giants, had 125 AB in 1963 with an avg of .184 and an OBP of .180. I believe that's the most AB in a season under this scenario.
    Brian Williams had 85 career ABs and had an avg of .176 and an OBP of .174 (granted he was a pitcher). Miguel Gomez, a 2B for the Giants is the leader for non-pitchers - 48 career ABs, .250 average, .245 OBP
