Perrotto: Jack Suwinski Trying to Get Over Blues of Wearing Grays (+)



Baseball is a game of a million statistics. Thus, it is easy to find outliers among those multitude of numbers.

However, few statistics have ever been more confounding than Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Jack Suwinski’s home/road splits last year during his rookie season.

At PNC Park, he hit like Ralph Kiner. On the road, he hit like a pitcher – the type of bad hitting pitcher that caused Major League Baseball to abolish the designated hitter rule prior to last season.

Suwinski batted .282/.373/.609 with 16 home runs in 56 games and 201 plate appearances in home games. In away games, he had a .112/.211/.184 slash line with three homers in 50 games and 171 trips to the plate.
