Throughout his career, Pedro Feliz has been an extraordinarily bad hitter on the road.  While you would generally expect a player to be better at home, his road numbers are simply downright detrimental.  In particular, take note of how often he strikes out on the road and how rarely he reaches base. 

 

And while his HR ratio at Willie Mays Field is affected by the way the ballpark clearly suppresses home runs, his much improved road ratio can be explained away by thrice yearly trips to hitter friendly Coors Field, where he has belted a whopping 15.7% of his career round trippers (in 169 PA – more than he has at any other visiting park).  In fact, Feliz has hit nearly 60% of his 89 career HR in just two of the 33 different ballparks he’s played in.

Feliz has played in 33 different Major League ballparks

 

One of the toughest things for a team to do in baseball is to win on the road.  Pedro Feliz, far from the clutch performer he is made out to be, continually hurts the Giants in that regard by consistently failing to produce away from the friendly confines of Willie Mays Field.

 

The Streaky Mr. Feliz

 

In talking with supporters of Feliz, you’ll often hear him described as streaky, as if that’s somehow a good thing.  Another word though for streaky is inconsistent, and Pedro Feliz is quite possibly the most inconsistent hitter in all of baseball.  Feliz runs hot and cold like an old house with ancient plumbing.

Note – among other things – how each season ends on a cold streak.  That, unfortunately, is one area in which Feliz has been unfailingly consistent.  Throughout his career Feliz has been better early in the year while fading come the dog days of August.  In 2006 Feliz batted .274 with 15 HR and 62 RBI before the break, only to finish at .202 with just 7 HR and 36 RBI after the All-Star game.

The Giants have consistently remained in the chase for the playoffs deep into the season.  Feliz’ struggles in the second half – in particular down the stretch – have plainly contributed to the team’s ultimate demise, and that is another clear indication that Feliz is anything but a clutch performer.

 

Pedro Feliz - Prodigious Out Making Machine

 

Offensively, the idea in baseball is to get on base as often as possible and score runs.  Pedro Feliz, a two-time winner of the BaseballEvolution.com Dave Kingman Award (presented annually to the player who “does the least with the most”), is a prodigious out making machine. 

 

Feliz made his debut in September of 2000, going 2-for-7 for a respectable – if even with so few AB – .286 batting average (on the other hand, aside from going 2-for-2 in a 13-0 rout of the Padres, he went 0-for-5 without a walk, HBP or anything else other than an out that fall).  Why do I mention this?  Because in those 7 measly plate appearances, Feliz created 5 outs; a rate of 71%.  That folks, believe it or not, has been the lowest percentage of outs created per PA in Pedro’s less-than-glorious career. 

 

To gain some perspective and to see where Feliz ranks among his peers, we can look at career percentages both of some of Feliz’ own recent teammates as well as those from some of baseball’s more productive players.

In reality, Feliz has never recorded a mark better than 73% in any season of his entire career.  Three times in six seasons, he’s created 75% or more outs/PA.  Morgan Ensberg, comparatively - if he keeps up his current pace - would create over 200 fewer outs through the same number of PA.  That’s over 60 fewer outs a year that the seemingly obtainable Ensberg could reasonably have been expected to make given the same number of PA that Feliz had last season. 

 

Certainly it’s unrealistic to expect Pedro to resemble such noted on-base machines like Helton, Thomas, Giambi or Abreu, but Feliz compares far more closely to recently retired catcher and former teammate Mike Matheny then any of those players, although even the four-time Gold Glove Award winning Matheny’s career OBP of .293 was actually 5 points higher than Feliz’ pathetic .288 mark. 

 

That then begs the question: just how bad is Feliz’ on-base percentage?  The short answer is awful.  With 2,437 plate appearances, his .288 career OBP ranks as the second lowest among all active major league players with at least 2,000 PA while his % of O/PA is the third lowest.

You can see that the list is primarily populated by shortstops and catchers – players valued more for their defense - while a total of only three third baseman populate the top, er…uh…bottom 25.  And of those three, Batista began his career as a middle infielder while Inge began his career as a catcher, making Feliz the only true third baseman on this list of truly inept batters.  And things really don’t get much better when you expand the field to 1,000 PA either.

For crying out loud, he ranks lower than two out of three Molina brothers (including his new teammate Bengie).  Now that’s saying something, and it isn’t really something good.  In fact, Feliz aspired to a new low in 2006 with his historically awful .281 single season OBP.   

 

With 644 PA last year, Feliz’ OBP tied him for the 15th lowest single season mark in major league history among all batters with at least 640 PA (since 1900).  The only other 3B on the list is Tony Batista (twice no less), although Buck Weaver did play 85 games at third in addition to 66 at SS in 1916.

*Rookie in 1965

**Played 3 games in 1932 as a 23-year-old, and then never played again until he was a wartime replacement player in 1944-45.

 

Of course, the crux of Pedro’s on-base percentage woes lie in his near steadfast refusal to take a walk or to refrain from chasing pitches out of the strike zone.  Somehow, you would think that while playing alongside Barry Bonds you just might pick up a clue or two about patience at the plate.  But that obviously has not rubbed off on Feliz.  Pedro’s penchant for swinging at nearly anything in the general area of home plate can be rivaled among his teammates only by backup catcher Eliezer Alfonzo, who last year as a rookie drew just two unintentional walks in 309 PA (his 7 IBB were the by-product of hitting 8th) and posted a .302 OBP.

Pedro, you’ll note, did show improved patience at the dish after his first two seasons, but then stagnated for two more years before improving significantly (relatively speaking) in ’05.  However he slid almost all the way back last year and his current age (32 on April 27) and career track record give no indications that 2005 was anything other than a fluke or that we should ever expect to see much improvement.  No, it’s not out of the question, certainly; it’s just highly unlikely given the fact that he’s drawn just 216 unintentional BB in over 4,700 professional AB.

There just has simply been nothing at all in Feliz’ past performance to suggest that he’ll ever figure it out.  His career minor league totals nearly even mirror his major league totals in a professional career that dates back to 1994, when Feliz was signed as an amateur free agent during the Quinn regime.
