Steve Pearce is one of the best two-out hitters this season

by Bill Chuck on June 24, 2016

I like batters who hit well with two outs. They stretch out an inning and in some cases that effective two-out plate appearance is what may push a pitcher out of the games.

Amongst all batters with at least 50 two out PAs, the Rays’ Steve Pearce has the best average.

Overall, Pearce is hitting .322 this season.

  • With no outs, Pearce is hitting .300
  • With one out, Pearce is hitting .236
  • With two outs, Pearce is hitting .424

Nine to Know: 2016 – Highest BA with 2 outs (min. 50 PA)
