AVG/OBP Question

Postby dclark0699 » Sun Sep 02, 2007 4:09 pm

From BA:

"It may be harsh to hit the No. 3 overall pick in 2007 so early, but the hype he received as a hitter has not proven anything yet. In his first five games he is hitting .095/.091/.095 in 21 at-bats. He has also struck out five times and hasn't drawn a walk yet. It's hard to have a higher average than on-base percentage, but he's done it so far."

How do you go about having an OBP lower than your average? it seems impossible.

Maybe he tried to stretch a single into a double and got thrown out in doing so. You still get credited for a hit, but your OBP would suffer, I'd assume.
