Miami Marlins: Grading the Fish in Atlanta
Lewis Brinson -.107
Lewis Brinson batted eighth in Friday’s game, and led off the third with a fly out to center (-.025). He grounded out to end the fifth (-.015), then flew out to end the seventh (-.008).
In Saturday night’s contest, Brinson batted seventh, moving up one for the presumably worse Bryan Holaday. Brinson grounded out with two runners in scoring position and nobody out in the second (-.054). He failed to move anyone up. With two on and one out in the fourth, he flew out (-.044). He led off the seventh inning with a ground out (-.024), and ended the game with another groundout (-.000).
In the finale, Brinson batted eighth, and ended the second inning with a fly out (-.024). He then hit a grand slam in the fourth inning and nobody out (+.101). It’s a measure of how dreadful Brinson has been otherwise that his collective WPA isn’t even touched by the four-run-homer. Brinson ended the fifth with two runners on base by grounding into a double play (-.012). He flew out for the second out of the seventh (-.001), then singled with one out in the ninth (+.001).
