Should Exit Velocity Factor Into Official Scoring?

In the second inning of today’s game at Fenway Park, Minnesota’s Max Kepler hit a one-hop rocket that Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts couldn’t handle. After deliberation — he looked at multiple replays —- official scorer Chaz Scoggins ruled the play an E-6. A few minutes later, Twins beat writer Rhett Bollinger noted that StatCast had Kepler’s smash at 109 mph...

Poor Xander Bogaerts. The X Man was about the only living highlight from this sit-flat 4-6 homestand, and his tenth-inning single in today’s game helped the Sox retain a bit of pride as they headed out to Texas.
