What We Can Learn From Fangraphs in April

Fangraphs tells us that the most valuable player in baseball this season has been Todd Frazier. Frazier only has half of Justin Upton’s six home runs, but a week’s worth of superior fielding and baserunning puts him on top.

The most valuable pitcher so far has been Clayton Kershaw. 0.00 ERA. 1.31 FIP. 16 K in 16 IP. They’re probably right about that one.

Carlos Santana and Yu Darvish lead the AL in WAR for position players and pitchers, respectively. Seems fair.

None of this means much. But Notgraphs’ Mississippi Matt Smith did hit us yesterday with the greatest thing in the history of the internet.
