Jason Heyward versus Lonnie Chisenhall
Pick your poison. Do you like offense or defense, because that is the battle here. Maybe.
Offensively, the Indians hold the edge, or do they?
Chisenhall: .286/.328/.439 split, 43 runs scored, 25 doubles, 8 home runs, 57 runs batted in.
Heyward: .230/.306/.325 split, 61 runs scored, 27 doubles, 7 home runs, 49 runs batted in.
So, other than average, the numbers are very similar. At least during the regular season.
Defense? Not even close. Heyward’s 28 defensive runs saved overshadows Chisenhall’s four.
Tiebreaker: Team WAR for this position. (0.4 to -0.3)
