Perrotto: Pirates Might Follow Ke’Bryan Hayes’ Lead in One Stat Category (+)



A couple of things immediately come to mind about Ke’Bryan Hayes.

First and foremost is that the Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman is one of the premier defensive players in the major leagues regardless of position. The only reason he doesn’t have a Good Glove to his name is because St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado also plays in the National League.

Hayes also has the distinction of having the largest contract in terms of value in franchise history. The eight-year, $70-million deal goes into effect this season.

The question of whether Hayes will hit as well as expected also comes to mind. Hand and back injuries have hampered Hayes over the last two season and he has not been able to fully fulfill his potential with the bat.
