Talking Friars Ep. 172: Should the Padres start Jose Azocar over Trent Grisham?

Let’s do a stats comparison of the two so far this season

The San Diego Padres have been carried most of the season by their starting pitching. It isn’t likely that they’ll continue to be this dominant all season long so the offense is going to have to step up at some point.

Trent Grisham, who is hitting .157 entering Friday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, has been a part of the offense as the starting center fielder but it’s worth asking if he should remain the starting center fielder over rookie Jose Azocar. Therefore, I thought it would be a fun exercise to compare Grisham and Azocar’s stats during Episode 172 of Talking Friars to see if it would be worth giving Azocar more playing time.
