It sure seems like every Johnny Estrada at bat is over before his name is even finished being announced. Watching the Brewers-Mets game today, I think he has seen about 4 pitches in 3 at bats. Looking at the league leaders for Pitches per Plate Appearance shows that I am not merely imagining this. Estrada sees an average of 2.99 P/PA. Where does that rank him? Out of players with at least 50 PA, this ranks him 311 — out of 312. The only one who swings more often is Jay Payton (2.96).
