Yep. We're 4th in batting average, but 12th in OBP. The other teams in the top 5 are all well above us in OBP and slugging.

Abrams now has more big leage at bats than in the minors. Garcia is into his second full season of at bats. Same for Ruiz. All of these guys have gotten progessively worse as their time in DC has gone on.

Im not saying its time to panic, but its time to be concerned. If we're still seeing this in August then we need to acknowledge a pretty major problem. This cant be the same situation the next couple seasons when we are looking to bring up guys like Hassell, House, and/or Wood

Looking at their Savant pages both Ruiz and García have made significant improvements over their 2022 seasons. The results haven't been there yet, but that's not what we should be caring about at this point in the rebuild. García has a .333 xwOBA vs a .293 wOBA and Ruiz is at .355 and .290 respectively which suggests both have been getting pretty unlucky. With .320 being roughly league average those would be great and realistic numbers for them to reach.

Abrams has been disappointing, especially on defense, but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt still.
