Weekly Check In: Greg Bird

Greg Bird has surprisingly struggled in the batting average department this season but, in the sabermetrics department at least, with that being an obsolete state these days I don’t worry about that as much as most.

Again, ignore the batting average state here (that I expect to come back to Earth in a larger sample size) and check out his peripherals and power numbers, the kid is still going to be something special with numbers like these:
