Saturday Stat Sheet 6/21/14

Jordy Mercer knocked his fifth home run of 2014 on Friday afternoon — fourth of June. He’s hitting .306 with an .852 OPS since breaking out of a huge slump on May 31st.

- On-base machine Russell Martin has reached safely in all 22 of his games since returning from the disabled list, boasting a .500 OBP in that span.

- Andrew McCutchen has finally looked human over the last few days (1 hit in his last 13 at-bats) … though he’s still slashing .351/.422/.770 in June.

- Everyone’s been on Pedro Alvarez‘s case recently … The power is absent and throwing errors are annoying, but has anyone realized that he’s hitting .297 with a .384 on-base percentage this month?

- Gregory Polanco‘s hitting streak is at 10.

- Jason Grilli, demoted from the closer role, pitched a scoreless eighth inning on Friday. His numbers compared to last year are not pretty:

- Charlie Morton … hard to figure out. After stringing together five or so good starts in a row, he imploded for six runs in six innings yesterday. The crooked number & one big inning again — five runs in the third inning did him in.

- Vance Worley gets the ball for the Bucs in game #2. Seven scoreless at Marlins Park last Sunday; let’s see if he can do it again tonight at Wrigley.

    The offense has done really well – it’s the starting pitching that has let the team down (especially Liriano and Cumpton). Also Grilli has had a tough year so far – Melancon has done a much better job.
