When looking for reasons why the Twins aren’t scoring runs — at 4.17 per game they rank 10th in the American League after averaging 4.41 (5th in the AL) a season ago — their lack of walks stands out.
The 2014 Twins walked 3.36 times per game, ranking 2nd in the American League. It was a big part of the reason they had a team on-base percentage of .324, also good for second in the AL.
The 2015 Twins have walked 2.41 times per game, almost a full walk less than last year, to rank 13th among the 15 AL clubs this season. As a result, their team OBP has dipped to .302, also 13th in the AL.
