Which teams hit well against righties/lefties? Which don't?

There were two variables I was looking for in putting this chart together:

1 - Hitting success

2 - Hitting balance

The answer appears quickly in this chart in the upper right quadrant:

1 - The Rockies are hitting .286 against righties and .285 against lefties.

2 - The Tigers are hitting .286 against righties and .283 against lefties.

  • The Braves have better balance than productivity hitting .244 against righties and .248 against lefties.
  • The Mariners hitting is also mediocre and balanced hitting .242 against righties and .238 against lefties.
  • But the Cubs, whose hitting is borderline miserable has the second closest balance hitting .238 against righties and .239 against lefties.
  • It's the Mets, with their miserable hitting that is the most balanced hitting .2434 against righties and .234 against lefties.

Best and worst?

  • The Dodgers are eating up lefties hitting .305 but struggling against righties hitting .232.
  • The White Sox are the worst hitting team against righties struggling at .224.

There are five teams hitting under .220 against lefties

  • Marlins - .219
  • Pirates - .219
  • Diamondbacks - .219
  • Phillies - .207
  • And the most amazing stat is that the Washington Nationals are hitting .203 against lefties (and only .240 against righties).
