Here are Andre’s Stats as of Sunday, April 26th. He is looking really good this season so far, and it’s only going to get better.
Games – 19
AB – 70
Runs – 22 (2nd on team and 5th in the NL)
Hits – 22 (3rd on team and 13th in the NL)

SO – 12 (5th on the team and 49th in the NL)
SB – 1
OBP – .437 (3rd on the team)
SLG – .600 (1st on the team and 11th in the NL)

IBB – 4 (tied for 1st on the team and tied for 2nd in the NL)
GDP – 4 (tied for 1st on the team and tied for 2nd in the NL)
TPA – 87 (2nd on the team and tied for 2nd in the NL)
NP – 384 (1st on the team and 1st in the NL) …..means one of the most disciplined batters in the league with an average of 4.41 pitches per AB…..a very overlooked stat IMO because stats like these are what gets opposing teams to go to their bullpens earlier in the game. For instance, just on the Dodgers alone, Kemp is 2nd in this category with 335 pitches. That is 49 more pitches Andre sees than than Matt who is 2nd in this category. In the NL, David Wright is 2nd with 346, which is 38 less than Andre. Just so you know, he is 2nd in the entire league behind Lind (Toronto) who has 418 with 88 TPA.
XBH – 10 (tied for 1st on the team and tied for 4th in the NL)
OPS – 1.110 (1st on the team)
So, a summary of Andre’s week ~ This week he has added 4 runs, 8 hits, 1 HR, 4 RBIs, 13 TB, 5 BB, 1 IBB, 130 more pitches, and 3 more XBH. The season is still very young, but it looks like Andre is getting a nice start to this 2009 season. Just remarkable!!!!
