2015 Splits

Now, for 2015, in a much smaller sample size, things are looking significantly more promising. Interestingly, Moustakas has almost as many plate appearances against lefties as he has against righties this season.

Against left-handers:

  • Plate Appearances – 58
  • Slash Line – .314/.386/.451/.837

Against right-handers:

  • Plate Appearances – 69
  • Slash Line – .339/.397/.468/.865

There just isn’t that much difference in these splits thus far. It will very interesting to see if Mike Moustakas can maintain these improvements, not only against lefties specifically, but overall.
