We are all painfully aware of Byron Buxton's struggles at the plate to start the season (rightfully so). But I was curious about how he has been doing in the field. Just watching, he appears to be doing very well, but wanted to see if the stats were backing that up, and they exceeded my expectations!
Per Baseball Reference.com, here is where Buxton ranks at this point in the season:
Defensive WAR: .6 (5th)
Putouts in OF: 2017 AL82 (3rd)
Fielding %: 100% (1st)
Total Zone Runs as CF/OF: 2017 AL11 (1st)
Range Factor/game: 2017 AL3.32 (1st)
So it appears that he has not taken his issues at the plate to the field. And beyond that, he is having a "gold glove" start to the season, defensively.
