Having fun with SBNation’s new sortable tables.

SBNation updated the tool used to insert tables into articles, and they now feature sortable columns!

Here are some hitting statistics for the 2016 Rays. Sort by any column to see who leads (or ends) the category.

2016 Rays Hitters

So here we see a lot of different players popping up near the top as you sort through the different columns. Evan Longoria was the best overall contributor at 4.5 fWAR.

Hank Conger had the highest hard hit contact rate, but that was probably a product of small sample size luck. Jaff Decker had the best line drive rate over a tiny sample size (though it makes sense considering his organization-leading 28.6% line drive rate for the Durham Bulls). Steven Souza had the second highest line drive rate, suggesting when he’s not striking out he really squares the ball up and could have himself a nice batting average if not for all those Ks.

Kevin Kiermaier was the best base runner without a whole lot of competition.

Pitching

And here are the pitching statistics for the 2016 Rays. I tried to add some reliever-specific stats as well for fun.

Sorting the columns makes it easy to see which pitchers performed well in each category. We see Chris Archer had the best overall contribution to the team (fWAR). Alex Colome led the team in xFIP and SIERA but surprisingly nothing else. Another surprise, Danny Farquhar led the team in K/9, while (not a surprise) Dana Eveland led the team in BB/9.

Dylan Floro was the best at inducing weak contact, while Steve Geltz was, uh, not. FIP also liked Floro the most, but its tough to deduce much from his 15.0 total major league innings.

Lastly, Enny Romero led the team in fastball velocity, while Xavier Cedeno has been able to do very well with some of the slowest pitches on the team. In all fairness, he throws a cutter as his fastest pitch, so I’ll cut him some slack.
