MLB Notes: August 19, 2013

Just about a quarter of the season left. Which reminds me, I need quarters to operate my laundry machine now. 

You know what sucks? Coin-operated laundry machines and short summers, that’s what.

Oh, baseball.

  • It seems almost unfair, but the Rangers’ Yu Darvish, he with the greatest K% this year at 11.96, also leads the majors in the amount of runners he strands (LOB%) at 83.8%
  • The Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw leads the majors in BABIP, with opponents batting just .231 against him in that category. 
  • The Indians’ Justin Masterson has a 3.1 WAR mark and induces an MLB best ground-ball rate percentage (GB%) of 58.6%
