Everyone accepts as true that Spring Training statistics are mostly meaningless. In the first two weeks of this Spring, this is especially so as some teams have had their rosters decimated by the World Baseball Classic i.e the Boston Red Sox and New York Mets. That said, the game of baseball has always been about statisitcs, and these are still kept.
I typically look at Total Bases when I do a quick sort of Srping Training leaders. What I am looking are the counting stats that make up Slugging Percentage and not just the rate, which can easily be skewed by kid who finished in High A who happened to get a hit in his one Spring Training AB.
The following list of Total Bases leaders shocked me. Not only were some of the weakest hitting players on it, some of them had curiously good BB/K ratios. I have no doubt that some of these hitters are flukes, but I have a non-quantifiable hunch that there is usable information here. Dare I say, verifiable fantasy baseball sleepers?
