Kipnis and K% can he improve

Postby bujfan2030 » Tue Mar 06, 2012 6:03 pm

Own Kipnis in an OPS league. last year his Power carried the day. But most of the projections I've seen have his power decreasing this year. His bb/k was pretty awful. So I'm wondering about players ability to improve this ratio. How many MLB at bats before this # is considered normalized. I think I heard 150 somewhere. Can that be right?

150 AB is probably when the sample becomes meaningful. This can change significantly with a younger player so there is certainly hope. Most players tend to head towards their minor league rates as they age and then it flattens at some point before reaching the minor league level. Some players never improve at it though.
