I looked it up and he has a .991 FLD% as a team which is right in the middle of the pack as far as his league goes but the amount of hits he saved helped a ton. His team batting avg is near the bottom of the league (.225) so those saved hits must have crazy impact for his team defensively to win 90+ games.

Thanks for sharing Jay.
