A. Mancini had a .771 OPS as of April 20.
B. Mancini banged his knee against a wall on April 20.
C. Over his next 19 games, up through May 15, Mancini had an .806 OPS.
D. From May 16-31, Mancini had a .380 OPS.
Poor conclusion from this is that the knee injury caused his slump 3+ weeks later, and is also the main cause of his declining range stats in 2018. My conclusion is that Mancini’s slump was probably unrelated to his knee, and not the main cause of his declining range stats in 2018. I’m willing to concede that his knee may have had some impact on his range figures for 2018, but I don’t think it was the main cause.
I guess we’ll see how much OF Mancini plays in 2019, and how he does out there.
