Somehow I managed to not draft anyone from this list. Yay me?

Byron Buxton eventually gets sent down, not having reached .200.  However, he gets called back up in September, and on the very last game of the season, in fact in his very last at bat, he gets the hit that finally puts him at .200.  

 

The rest of these guys will probably reach it at some point much sooner.

The heavyweight candidates (.000 to .150)

 

Byron Buxton  .082 (4/49)

Jose Reyes .105 (6/57)

Jose Bautista .109 (6/55)

Keon Broxton .119 (5/42)

 

The lightweights (.151 - .175)

 

Carlos Gomez .159 (10/63)

 

.200 soon right?

 

Randall Grichuk .185 (10/54)

 

These are the ones I would keep an eye on.

Isn't always refreshing when half your team is on these lists?

The only way Buxton reaches 200 is with the all McDonalds diet.

It'd be like the Home Run scene in The Natural.

We got some strong candidates this year. Jose Bautista would be my top choice to stick under for longest.

That much faith that Danny Espinosa wouldn't reach .200 that he wasn't even on the list.

Came to post same thing.  He's 2 for his last 50!  He's a special kind of s****y.  He won't sniff .200.

Espinosa is maybe the worst MLB hitter I've seen in person, excluding pitchers.  I saw the Nats in both San Diego and Arizona in separate years and saw maybe 15 PAs from Espinosa.  He didn't get a hit or walk in any of them if I remember correctly and K'd like 9 or 10 times.  His swing from the left side is like a golf swing. It has an up and down arc, instead of straight to the ball.  He's not much better from the right side.  How this dude ever makes contact with his swing is a testament to his eye hand coordination.

I know Greg Bird (.100), Napoli (.194) and Todd Frazier (.189) are also there.

Don't forget our boy Schwarber.  Currently sitting at a nice .173.

Sub Mendoza right now:  Espinosa, Schimpf, Schwarber, Gordon, Escobar, Frazier, Granderson, Napoli, Aybar (for those who have enough at bats).

Schwarber will eventually zoom past it soon. Gordon and Escobar maybe. Frazier if he gets traded. Napoli and Aybar are good enough to squeak past it.

Espinosa and Granderson may not get above .200 this year.

Schimpf will definitely hit sub .200.  If its not a center cut meatball, dude literally cannot do a thing with it.  Going oppo or up the middle, taking what the pitcher gives you, are completely foreign concepts to this guy.  May have the first .180, 30 homer season.
