Fun with Stats… Cactus League Style

So, I finally found a place where you can get some Spring Training stats. And by some, I mean all. Check it out here. Of course, I should have figured it would come from mlb.com.

Anyway, they are not West Coast, nor do they play in the AL West, but the KC Royals do play in the Cactus League and they are all kinds of exciting. Not to mention all kinds of talented. Look out for the Royals this year. And yes, I am serious.

Cactus League Leaders

RBI – Eric Hosmer, KC Royals (17)

AVG – Lorenzo Cain, KC Royals (.500) – and that is a true .500, not a “I batted 4 times and got 2 hits” .500; he is currently 17/34 and one of the top prospects in baseball.

2B – Lorenzo Cain, KC Royals (7)

SB – Gregor Blanco, SF Giants (9) – Who? Yeah, Gregor White (Blanco means White). Batting .419, 18 hits in 43 AB’s, 9 steals. Those are #1 fantasy draft pick type numbers. Not that I’m suggesting you take him #1 (or at all) in your fantasy draft.

HR – Carlos Peguero, SEA Mariners (4) – There are a bunch tied at 4 so I’m just going to list my favorite. At 6’5″ and 245 lbs, there’s a lot to like. Literally. And physically.

ERA – C.J. Wilson, LA Angels (0.64)

Wins – Luis Mendoza, KC Royals (4) – In 4 starts. Oh by the way, 12 K in 11 IP, and just 1 ER for a 0.77 ERA.

K’s – Felix Hernandez, SEA Mariners (17)
