    Fastest Braves so far in 2019

    Enough data has been gathered now in 2019 for the Sprint Speed leader boards to be posted:

    https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/sprint_speed_leaderboard

    Speed grades are roughly...

    Grade 80 = 30 ft/s
    Grade 70 = 29 ft/s
    Grade 60 = 28 ft/s
    Grade 50 = 27 ft/s
    Grade 40 = 26 ft/s
    Grade 30 = 25 ft/s
    Grade 20 = 24 ft/s

    Info on Braves players (389 MLB players on the list):

    #21 Acuna 29.2
    #41 Swanson 28.7
    #62 Albies 28.4
    #95 Culberson 28.0
    #261 Inciarte 26.3
    #274 Markakis 26.2
    #280 Freeman 26.1
    #288 Joyce 26.0
    #293 Donaldson 25.9
    #299 Camargo 25.8
    #333 Flowers 25.3
    #389 McCann 22.4

    While the Braves don't have an 80 grade burner, they have 3 young guys with 65/70 grade speed.

    Culberson is a nice all-around bench piece, and Grade 60 speed is another thing he offers.

    Inciarte is down from 27.9 in 2018, and 27.2 in 2017. He is currently the slowest CF in MLB. It seems like something is physically wrong with him.

    It's odd to realize Camargo is as slow as catchers and aging sluggers.

    Mac is, in fact, the slowest MLB player this year...
    I think he (Teheran) finishes with a FIP ~3.3. -CrazyTrain 3/25/2019

    Gausman had a bad walk ratio for us -CrazyTrain 11/20/2018
    BB/9 with Braves: 2.72

    Fried, Newk and a couple other guys for Bumgarner and give him a pay day for 6ish years -CrazyTrain 10/15/18

    As Skip would say, "McCann has deceptive speed. He's slower than he looks."

    It's hard to wrap my head around Inciarte basically having the same sprint speed as Markakis.

    Or he's hurt, which might help explain the collapse at the plate as well.

    I haven't looked into sprint speed decline at all, but it seems like too large of a decline for Inciarte just due to being a year older.

    Is that sprint speed the fastest or the average?

    The amazing thing is that he's a 14 year vet and hasn't lost a step.

    Yes and no. Every concern you had with ender is going to be shared by the rest of the league.

    Thats why he should have been traded on the offseason. Missed opportunity coming off of back to back 3 WAR seasons.

    I thought Ozzie would be faster, Camargo being almost as slow as catchers is ridiculous!

    I doubt he had much trade value

    Not sure they got a good measure on Camargoat when he is always jogging around the bases.
