Beyond the Boxscore: Bunting for Base Hits

According to this graph, from Beyond the Boxscore, Jose Reyes and Angel Pagan are among the most productive at bunting in non-sacrifice situations:

I’m not a staunch supporter of the sacrifice bunt. I understand its use in certain situations, in certain games and against specific pitchers. I’d use it, but only if the moon and stars line up. Instead, for the most part, I prefer to let my batters swing away. That said, I have no problem with people bunting for base hits, so long as they have that skill and use it well – apparently like Reyes and Pagan, who are going to make for an exciting top-of-the-order this season.
