The Most Volatile Hitter in Baseball History

Allow me to share with you an unremarkable batting line: .235/.308/.412. It doesn’t belong to Logan Morrison, but it might as well. This line belongs to another veteran, and it covers the last four years, and it’s worked out to a 98 wRC+. You can tell there’s seemingly nothing too special about the bat. To that, I’ll add that the player isn’t a particularly strong base...

Mets Checked In With 1B/OF Ryan Raburn

According to Matt Ehalt of the Bergen Record, the Mets have checked in on free agent outfielder Ryan Raburn. I wrote about Raburn last week as a potential option for the Mets as a bench player who could give Terry Collins some valuable flexibility as a player who can play both corner outfield spots as well as first base. Raburn, 34, batted .303/.393/.543 in 201 plate appearances...

Should the Indians Pick Up Raburn’s Option?

While Major League Baseball is in day number two of its official offseason, the Cleveland Indians have been hard at work already (presumably) at finding ways to build a winner for 2016 and beyond. Many questions are already answered with the return of a strong nucleus and a pitching staff that met expectations for the 2015 season. Some of the questions about how the organization...

The Platoon Option: Should the Indians Bring Back Raburn?

The Indians enter the off season in need of one or two impact offensive players that will (hopefully) propel them into the postseason. It is a pressing need on a ball club that ranked in the middle of the pack in most important offensive categories in 2015. There might be an “x-factor” already on the club; a player who quietly had a good ’15 season with the stick and his...

Ryan Raburn spiked throw results in 'inside-the-park-HR'

In a 0-0 game in the bottom of the 8th inning, Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas hit a lazy fly ball down the left-field line. Raburn slid for it, but the ball bounced off his glove and rolled over to the wall. Moustakas seemed content jogging into second for a stand-up double until Raburn tried to throw the ball, as if he wasn’t bad enough with his glove. It turned...

Former Tiger Ryan Raburn trends for wrong reason

Ryan Raburn was trending on Twitter Thursday night -- for all the wrong reasons. Raburn, a former Tigers outfielder now with the Cleveland Indians, made an unsuccessful attempt to dive for a ball in foul territory. Raburn then got up to get the ball but his throw was, to say the least, beyond unfortunate, especially in a scoreless game in the eighth inning. Kansas City's Mike Moustakas...

Raburn happy that second half of season is here

DETROIT -- Count Ryan Raburn among the many Indians hitters who are happy that the schedule has entered the post-All Star break phase. Raburn, who was among the most disappointing players in the first half, came into Friday's game against Detroit during the seventh inning and had two doubles as the Tribe rallied for a 9-3 win. His RBI double to right in the seventh inning tied the...
