NPB countdown to 200 hits, September 6 update

by on Sep.06, 2010 @ 5:13 pm, under NPB

I've added Kensuke Tanaka, Tsuyoshi Nishioka, Munenori Kawasaki back into the mix, as per Steve's suggestion.

The numbers:

Player G PA AB H GR AB/G
Matt Murton 119 554 510 175 25 4.3
Norichika Aoki 120 563 493 174 24 4.1
Kensuke Tanaka 125 581 504 174 18 4.0
Tsuyoshi Nishioka 126 605 522 173 18 4.1
Munenori Kawasaki 129 592 538 172 15 4.2

The estimates:

Munenori Kawasaki .3197 20 192

Murton and Aoki are still in good shape. Tanaka and Nishioka still have a decent shot, but a few of 0fers could derail them. And at this point, it seems like Kawasaki is more of less out of the running.

Incidentally, since 8/1:
