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.
