From the TOOTBLAN Tracker research department …
The Pittsburgh Pirates have put up more than an early-season winning record; they also lead the league in TOOTBLAN differential, according to numbers pulled from the TOOTBLAN database.
The Pirates have committed a relatively paltry six TOOTBLANs so far while “forcing” a league-leading 16 on-base non-force outs by opponents, good for a differential of +10.
Second-place Kansas City is +8, with 10 TOOTBLANs by opponents and a mere two of their own.
The worst differential? That goes to the -7 San Francisco Giants (nine TOOTBLANs, two for opponents), followed by the Houston Astros at -6.
