Yesterday, we showed you the batters who have been most successful hitting line drives this season. How about pitchers, you ask? Well, here is a list of all American League teams, ranked by the number of line drives they have yielded per at bat so far this year.
BAL .110 DET .132 BOS .140 TBD .148 MIN .149 CHW .154 TEX .155 CLE .155 SEA .160 NYY .160 TOR .168 ANA .174 KC .182 OAK .185
You may have noticed at least one irony: the team with the lowest ERA in the league has been giving up the highest percentage of line drives. Of course, it helps to give up the least walks and home runs, too. But perhaps those Oakland fielders should be getting some credit.
