Comparing Detroit Tigers outfielders Brennan Boesch and Quintin Berry since the All Star break
The Tigers lineup has been consistent most nights since acquiring Omar Infante near the trade deadline and the return from the disabled list of outfielder Andy Dirks, both of whom have performed well.
The one area of controversy about the lineup is whether fan favorite Quintin Berry should be in more against right-handed starting pitching. Most nights, the choice comes down to Berry or Brennan Boesch for right field. After today's series finale vs. Toronto, the Tigers will face right-handed starters all three games of their set against the Angels at Comerica Park: Zach Greinke, Dan Haren and Ervin Santana.
This is how Boesch and Berry compare statistically since the All-Star break:
Quintin Berry: 91 at bats, .231 batting average, 293 on-base percentage, 1 home run, 9 RBI, 8 runs scored 4 stolen bases, .601 OPS (on-base percentage plus slugging percentage).
Brennan Boesch: 104 at bats, .260 batting average, .313 on base percentage, 3 home runs, 17 RBI, 13 runs scored, 1 stolen base, .746 OPS.
