The usual suspect were once again at the top of this week's Yankee Run factor. Curtis Granderson continues to hit the long ball as he added three more this week and is one shy of the league lead behind Blue Jays' Jose Bautista.
Mark Teixeira is hot on the heals of Granderson when it comes to home runs. Tex is tied with Granderson for the team lead in RBIs with 47.
Here is this week's report (with explanations below the chart):
What is the Yankee Run Factor?
The Yankee Run Factor is a fairly simple statistical metric. It takes the "Runs produced" sabermetric created by Bill James and divides it in two different ways.
The first equation is R + RBI - HR / G = Runs produced per game, as indicated in the chart above as YRF/G.
The second equation is R + RBI - HR / PA = Runs produced per plate appearance, as indicated in the chart above as YRF/PA.
