Brantley's 2013 Game-by-Game Numbers & Notes

this blog contains all of Michael's game-by-game numbers and notes for 2013. you can see both peaks and valleys throughout his season. he battled through some offensive slumps in June and August, but did well enough in the other months to compensate. a very strong showing in September brought his batting average back up and helped him finish the year on a high note.

Michael played in 151 of 162 games. he had a hit in 99 of 151 games that he played and reached base safely in 115 games. (*and keep in mind he did not have any official at bats in 3 of those games, because he was subbed in defensively in late innings.)

Michael started and played left field in 144 games. of those 144 games, he completed 143 in left field. he was moved to center field for the final 4 innings of 1 game. he was a defensive substitute in 7 games, playing a total of 16 innings, all in left field. he came in to PH in late innings in 4 games. after he PH'd, he remained in those 4 games as the left fielder and played a total of 10 innings. he had 8 complete games off and missed 3 games due to the birth of his baby. and for the first time, he did not have any notable injuries this season.

Michael had a few modest hitting streaks during the year, including a 7-game, 8-game, and 11-game streak. in the 11-game hitting streak, he had 4 straight games with 3 hits and 1 RBI. this streak also occurred right before the season ended, giving Michael the highest batting average (.284) on the team out of all the regulars for the second year in a row. well done once again, Smooth! =D

the biggest accomplishment of his season might have been his defense. Michael's fielding percentage was a perfect 1.000, also best on the team. this helped him achieve a career high and Indians club record of 245 consecutive games in the outfield without an error. he set another career high for himself with 11 assists as well.
