Matt Joyce Might Be Worse in Center Than Previously Thought

New, comments

Small sample size alert!

Don't read too much into these at all, but here's your early season UZR leaders:

Zobrist 1.7 runs

Gross 1.6

Crawford 1.4

Kapler 0.3

Pena 0.1

Longoria 0.0

And that's it for positives. The Rays as a team are 0.8, slightly above average. The Mariners lead the league with a UZR just over 5 combined. The others:

Bartlett -0.3

Iwamura -0.5

Joyce -3.5

So um, Joyce has been pretty awful in center field. Getting B.J. back tomorrow night is going to be a godsend.
