I've been poking around some advanced defense and baserunning stats the past few days and came across some interesting information regarding Allen Craig.

Basically, Fangraphs' UBR has Craig rated as the WORST baserunner in baseball this year (it's based on batted ball running attempts, largely dependent on how often and successfully they advance) and one of the worst defenders in baseball.

It's not as vicious on Craig's defensive numbers as Baseball Ref, which has him at an extreme negative number this year, but it's still not pretty.

It surprised me a little because, while I haven't regarded Craig as anything better than a slightly below-average fielder, I never thought he was bottom 10 in runs saved. Same thing with his baserunning.

Thoughts?
