We are going to study how Edwin Encarnación performed against the Cleveland Indians in terms of home runs to see how he will do this year when he joins them.
How will Edwin Encarnación do in Cleveland this year?
Encarnación's 42 home runs if they were hit in Progressive Field, home of the Cleveland Indians.
What would it look like if we calculated the Encarnación's career totals vs. Cleveland? First, his home run ability vs. Cleveland would be .040 in 198 attempts (8 career HR's). In a simulated performance of his career, he recieved 7 home runs and .035 success rate. Below is how he would do in 100 simulated trials with his career statistics for home runs.
Keep in mind, this is not a dim forecast for him with Cleveland because he probably does not do his best vs. Cleveland's pitching. Also, some of his home runs could be from home in Toronto and that could've been subtracted, but I wanted to include all data vs. Cleveland. Encarnación has been playing since 2005 but still does not have enough data to show how he really can play in Progressive Field. Only time can show that.
