Using Fangraph's leaderboards, here are the 10 players least likely to hack at a pitch outside of the zone:
|Marco Scutaro||Blue Jays||12.81%|
And the 10 most likely:
|A.J. Pierzynski||White Sox||38.82%|
Is it just me or is there a difference between being "aggressive" and being "hacky"? For instance let's say a player has a 20% O-Swing, which is really good, but only sees 3.6 P/PA, not great, but if he's not swinging outside of the zone he's simply attacking the pitches inside of the zone early in the count. Meanwhile a player with a high O-Swing%, no matter the P/PA, is "hacky" to me. Does anyone else have similar definitions?
