Yasmani Grandal

San Diego Padres

Catcher-At-A-Glance

Although he has not caught an MLB pitch in 2014, Yasmani Grandal caught 11,185 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2011 and 2013, including pitches caught in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2013, in 1,416 framing opportunities (i.e., taken pitches), he was an exceptionally good framer, which resulted in 53.21 extra strikes than would be expected from a league average catcher. This was quite valuable, resulting in 7.47 saved runs (worth approximately 5 million dollars).
