How Inexperienced are the Pirates?


With the call up of Walker, Tabata, Pearce, and now Pedro; the Bucs are now both young and very inexperienced. Just how do they compare to other teams? See below.

For the NL Central teams, I used the starting 8 from MarkInDallas's post.

Some stunning facts:

  • The average age of our starting 8 is 2 years younger than other teams on the list.
  • Albert Pujlos has more ABs (5386) than the whole Pirate team combined. In total, 11 players from the teams listed individually have more ABs than the whole Pirate team combined.
  • All but one NYY (Gardner) has more ABs than anyone on the Bucs
  • All but two Reds have more ABs than anyone on the Bucs. All but 4 for the Brewers & Cubs, and all but 3 on the Cards.
  • The youngest player on the listed teams (Stralin Castro of the Cubs) has almost as many ABs as three Pirates combined (Walker, Tabata, Alvarez)
  • Assuming 600 ABs per player, the Bucs would have to play over seven full seasons to match the Yankees present total ABs.
Team Avg. Age Total ABs % Over Bucs
Reds 29.5       25,351 528%
Brewers 27.7       17,538 365%
Cards 28.4       16,582 345%
Cubs 30.2       23,514 490%
Yankees 31.2       36,488 760%
Bucs 25.4         4,801
