Breakdown Kevin Newman

    Overview

  • Experts don't even rank him among SS's. Based on his stats from the past 60 days, he is currently ranked 26th.
  • The current leader among SS's is Fernando Tatis Jr.
  • In the past two weeks he has had an awful lot of time off. Either he isn't an every day player or he is coming back from an injury of some sort. I suggest checking out his news page to get a closer look.
  • Trending Batting Stats

  • Ranked 372nd in BABIP (Batting Average on Balls In Play) with 0.235
  • Ranked 299th in batting average with 0.223

  • Not too impressive and is currently ranked 374th in RBI with 9
  • Not too impressive and is currently ranked 262nd in runs scored with 18

Breakdown Leody Taveras

    Overview

  • I couldn't find any stats of this player even playing a game in the past 60 days. This is most likely due to an injury or time in the minors.
