Most similar players

on .

Baseball Reference has a tool that scores each player and compares statistics to other players. The highest comparing score by another player is the most similar player. Jeff Francoeur's most similar player after 2 seasons is HOF'er Duke Snider. I'm guessing that Francoeur's sample size is not enough yet to make it legit. Andruw's most similar player remains Frank Robinson. LaRoche's is Mo Vaughn. Chipper's most similar non-active player, oddly, is Duke Snider. The most similar player overall is Gary Sheffield. Renteria's is Alan Trammell. I thought it would be cool to point this out. It's really weird that Chipper and Francoeur have the same most similar player, since Chipper walks a ton and Francoeur rarely walks.
