Daniel, Louis and Ely dedicate this episode to what makes Arraez unique in today’s game and why it’s working so well for him.
Daniel Rodriguez and Louis Addeo-Weiss are joined by Ely Sussman. Episode 15 of Fishology dives deep into the stupendous and unorthodox start to Luis Arraez‘s Marlins career. We finish off by discussing where Jesús Sánchez‘s clutch catch ranks among the most valuable plays of the 2023 Marlins season.

Arraez enters Friday ranking in the 100th percentile among MLB hitters in strikeout rate and whiff rate and in the 99th percentile in expected batting average. His actual batting average of .378 is 47 points better than the next-closest MLB qualifier. That’s despite being in the midst of a slump (hitless in his last three games).
