Runs Created and Runs Saved Charts

Russell Martin is the only Dodgers player in the top 10 on the Runs Created listing, although he is in a tie for seventh on the "worst" side of the charts. James Russell shares his early "worst" ranking among the pitchers Runs Saved Above Average.

The Dodgers, as a team, rank ninth on the Runs Created list fifth on the Runs saved lists. Individually, former Dodgers right hander Derek Lowe leads all National League pitchers.

A number of statistical categories are used to determine if the player/pitcher is above the league average. Former Dodgers Cody Ross, Adam Laroche, Milton Bradley and Andy LaRoche are also in the top 10, although on the "worst" side of the ledger.

Orlando Hudson tops the Dodgers Runs Created Above Average list and Clayton Kershaw, Ronald Belisario, Hiroki Kuroda and Eric Stults lead the Runs Saved Above Average standings.

Obviously both lists include only the first week of play as as such they don't reflect the true worth of the players.

The complete list, with all the Dodgers included along with those with two or more runs created or runs saved from each team.
