All of the MLB's Worst Hitters on one team- 2023 The No Hitters
As we start the countdown to MLB opening data everyone loves to put out top 10 lists to get folks excited for the new season. Here we are going to put out a different lineup daily for the MLB and the Astros. You may want to refer to the index to see the other lineups.
I announced this series on Twitter/ X.
Our second lineup is the 2023 The No Hitters. This is the team with the worst starting player at each position as defined by the lowest wRC+. Everyone had to have 300 PA. I have included the Players' ages in 2023, what team they played for, wRC+, defensive WAR, and WAR.
One thing to note- all on my lists are restricted to guys who had at least 300 PA in 2023. Unfortunately, that weeds out some truly epically bad hitting seasons for this team. Rules are rules. I made them when I started, and I wanted the lists to have some consistency.
The No Hitters are a tragically bad baseball team. Imagine how many runs this team would not score. There might be a no hitter every week. The only good thing about this team is that several of these players are really young.
Say a prayer now for Miami Marlins fans. They have THREE players on this team. The Colorado Rockies play in the best hitter's park that anyone can remember, but the still got Brendon Doyle (who was incredible in the field and will be on another team too.) on this roster.
The folks at FanBuzz made a similar list but their list was not restricted to position and 300 PA. I thought it would be fun for you to have it anyway.
Which of the No Hitters surprises you the most? Which No Hitter would you want on your team?
The folks at Smartr Baseball did something similar with their most disappointing hitters. As bad as these guys were in 2023, they are All-Stars compared to most of the No Hitters. Check out their video. Caution Astros fans- this might hurt your feelings.
