Freeman vs. Heyward -- The first 411 ABs

 

 

 

Today we are comparing the young careers of Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman. Jason Heyward hit the 411 AB mark at the end of August last year. As I looked up Freddie Freeman’s stats I noticed he was right at the 411 career mark himself. So, the Braves fan in me was wondering who did better over their first career 411-at bats? Well, I broke it down for you and here are the result is some of the most major statistical hitting categories:

 

Jason Heyward: Vs. Freddie Freeman

411 AB’s……… Vs. 411 AB’s, Verdict Push

.277 BA……….. Vs. .289 BA, Verdict Freeman

114 H……………Vs. 119 H, Verdict Freeman

25 2B……………Vs. 26 2B, Verdict Push

16 HR……………Vs. 16 HR, Verdict Push

64 RBI…………..Vs. 53 RBI, Verdict Heyward

85 R……………..Vs. 53 R, Verdict Heyward

67 BB……………Vs. 39 BB, Verdict Heyward

104 K……………Vs. 106 K, Verdict Push

Obviously there was different circumstance for both players, Freddie was called up late last year and played sparingly and had some PH appearances and never had consistent PT over his first 24-at bats and was thrown into a playoff race for added pressure. Heyward on the other hand started the year at the start of the year. But, regardless, those are the first 411-at bats.

So, who will have a better career? Fred or Jason?

Anything surprise you about the first 411 AB’s?
