A neat look at how Jarrod Dyson was caught stealing last night. Other than the nudge, that is.

This is pretty cool. Statcast, MLBAM’s player tracking technology, took a deeper look at how Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson was caught stealing in the seventh inning of Game 1 of the ALCS against the Orioles last night. Yes, the nudge from Jonathan Schoop obviously helped, but below you’ll get some numbers that we have never really seen before.

Hopefully we’ll see more of this as the playoffs continue. With greater context, technology like this will add another layer to the way we watch and evaluate the game.
