I am starting to keep track of wRC+ or (weighted runs created) on a week to week basis. This is a stat that measures a players offensive contribution compared to the league average. In this case Jayson Werth is 60% better than the league average and Steve Lombardozzi is 39% worse. This is different than WAR because it only measures hitting, it is not cumulative and it doesn’t take into account player position.

Rendon, while slightly above average is the 7th ranked 2nd baseman in the NL
