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 62% better than the league average and Steve Lombardozzi is 42% worse. This is different than WAR because it only measures hitting, it is not cumulative and it doesn’t take into account player position.
