Most men left on base for the year:

It's got to be a close race between Bruce, Freeman. Logo and anyone on the Mets not named Duda. Did I miss anyone?

Also, seeing Athletics and Blue Jays representing the top 3 indicates that this as much a quality of being a low average hitter as it is being on a good batting team.

I think a more accurate thing to look at is RISP.

That's where you find Chris Davis towards the top of the list. Freddie Freeman however is low on this list.

Needless to say that Brian McCann is simply having a horrible horrible season....

Ian Kinsler is the worst? I thought he's been pretty clutch this season.

Shoo in the 3-hole?

The list only says how many people were left on base/in scoring position but it doesn't say in how many AB.

For example, Choo is among the leaders when it comes leaving the fewest runners in scoring position yet he's only hitting .154 and zero HR with RISP.

It's not really a fair stat to look at to be honest. He can't help it if he is in a good lineup.

He is hitting .291 on the season.

.280 with nobody on. .300 with men on base. .306 with men in scoring position. You can't really expect much better than that.

That isn't right... It only shows the top 100...

Don't believe me? Click on strikeouts and then sort by the most... Where is B.J. Upton's league leading 139?

Yeah, something is off with their list. Pujols isn't listed at all and should be high on the list. Earlier today Kinsler was #1 on the list and now isn't even on there. It isn't a reliable source. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find another site that tracks it.

The best I could come up with was a team comparison; it's the last category on the right, through the link. Amazing how many individual batting categories there are, but none are LOB.

I was surprised to see Tampa leaving the most men on base by a good margin. It's not only a quality of the batters further down the lineup; the manager plays a role in coming up with an order that makes efficient use of base runners. Interesting seeing Detroit near the bottom, alongside teams that have a hard time scoring runs. They're making good use of the 2nd highest team batting average in the league. Likewise for Colorado.

Well Baseball reference has a stat called BSR% (Percentage of runners who scored on a batters play, not necessarily RBI)

AL least productive hitters with men on base (200 Runners)

Xander Boegarts 245 runners=8%

Jonathan Schoop 207 runners=9%

NL

Zack Cozart 251 Runners=9%

BJ Upton 210 Runners=10%

Top 5 most productive with men on base

Miguel Cabrera 258 Runners=27%

Chris Colabello (LOL) 152 Runners=23%

Jose Abreu 255 Runners=22%

Robinson Cano 257 Runners=21%

Omar Infante (WTF?) 222 Runners=21%

Top 5 most productive with men on base

Ryan Braun 207 Runners=25%

Devin Mesoraco 179 Runners=21%

Lyle Overbay 121 Runners=21%

Ryan Zimmerman 154 Runners=21%

Charlie Blackmon 214 Runners=20%

Far as futilely with guys that have seen 300 runners

Pedro Alvarez 305 Runners=11%

Notables from this thread

Freeman 287 Runners=16%

Ian Kinsler 278 Runners=17%

Chris Davis 250 Runners=15%

Albert Pujols 340 Runners=15%

Joey Votto 130 Runners=13%

Seen the most base runners this year

Casey McGehee 347 Runners=18%

Stanton has seen the 9th most base runners in MLB, FYI

Its fun to play with. Thought it was more interesting that cumulative LOB

I found that as well doing my search, but it technically isn't true LOB, though it is a little more accurate...
