Presented Without Comment: Bill Hall vs. Brewers Middle Infielders | Disciples of Uecker

Disciples of Uecker

We'd like to go to the Playoffs, that would be cool.

With Bill Hall’s release from the Houston Astros today, many around the Milwaukee Brewers have suggested him as a potential replacement for Yuniesky Betancourt as the Brewers’ shortstop. I can’t pretend that I haven’t considered the idea intriguing as well. I haven’t completely made up my mind yet, and so I present, without comment, the statistics of Hall as well as the Brewers current middle infield corps of Betancourt, Josh Wilson, and Craig Counsell over the past three seasons, as well as projections.

A reminder: as usual, I use the AVG/OBP/SLG format with triple-slash lines.

And another note: for “DEF” I am using UZR + positional adjustment, to account for different positions played.

And a final note: All WAR totals from FanGraphs
