Reid Brignac

When checking out various prospects up for vote in the community voting, I came across Brignac's splits.  Obviously we only have half a season of sample data, but here's the LH hitter's 2007 L/R breakdown:

Pitcher AVG SLG OBP  AB   H 2B 3B HR RBI  BB  SO      
vs. L     311  451  346  122  38  6  1  3  13   7  20
vs. R     204  371  271  167  34  7  3  5  28  17  26

To me, a couple of things stand out.  It's interesting that he's faced about 25% less LHs than RHs.  It would figure the discrepency would be larger.  Also, despite the underlying secondary numbers favoring Brignac facing a RH, it's obvious far more balls (singles) are falling in against southpaws.

I don't know whether it's good news that Brignac hangs in so well against LHs, bad news that he's struggled against RHs, or just bad luck that more balls aren't falling in vs. RH pitching.

What are others' thoughts?
