In other words, he would have gone hitless in a quarter of his games played. Add to that he almost never walks.
...like a pitcher in the lineup
If we don't count the games when he came in to PH it would make it 46 games and 9 hitless outings or about 20%. But he has had multi-hit games in 21 of those games or around 46%. We need to have our pitchers hit like that more often.
You have sportsfan convinced though.
But I get what you're trying to say, I think.
