Best Fielder: Third Baseman Chase Headley

Chase Headley was not only the best fielder on the team but one of the best fielding third baseman in baseball.

The 2012 gold glove award winner lead the team with 7.2 defensive runs saved above average, made the fewest errors among infielders with at least 1,000 innings, and owned the highest Ultimate Zone Rating.

Headley’s defensive runs saved above average also ranked inside the top-10 among all major league third basemen.

What’s even more impressive, however, is the improvement from his 2015 campaign in which he ranked 125th in MLB in the same category, according to FanGraphs.
