B. Holt .709 vs LHPs/.704 v RHPs

Rutledge .721 v LHPs/.704 v RHP

Sandoval .673 v LHPs/ .835 v RHPs

Since 2014, Pablo has the worst OPS vs LHPs in MLB at .521.

If ever a platoon was in order...
If Pablo is reduced to platooning with Rutledge, after all the work he has put in to lose weight, that's a disaster.
