2010 Overview


What happened?

Drafted in the 11th Round out of Cedar Crest High School in Pennsylvania, Redinger got off to a booming start in seven June games, before crashing back to earth in July and August.

Redinger hit a lot of ground balls - 60%, as a matter of fact. As a result, he posted a .278 BABIP, so they didn't find a lot of holes.

Thirty-five of Redinger's 36 defensive starts came at 3B, where he committed ten errors in 106 chances, for a .906 Fld%.

What went right?

June. In seven June games, Redinger hit .409/.500/.636, drawing five walks and collecting four extra-base hits.

Like Chan-Jong Moon, hitting w/RISP. His OPS was 186 points higher w/RISP (.677) than with the bases empty (.481).

Also, since we're looking for positives here, his Road OPS was .648, compared to .477 at home.

What went wrong?

July and August. After four extra-base hits in seven June games, Redinger got two XBHs the rest of the season. And after five June walks, he drew ten walks in July and August.

Hitting against RHP. In 121 ABs, Redinger hit .198/.277/.256.

Redinger has a big frame, so an off-season of conditioning and preparation should help him out as he moves to Greeneville.
