A baseball player who routinely hits for a high batting average but has limited power and patience, thus his OBP and SLG rates would more commonly be attached to batting averages significantly lower than his.
A lack of speed is part of this as well, but since stolen bases are not counted as part of SLG or any other stat other than stolen bases, said players that steal a lot would appear to have empty averages at first glance.
Despite winning the 2006 batting title, Freddy Sanchez walked just 31 times and hit only 11 home runs. His OPS that year was just .851. He also only stole 3 bases. He is the empty batting average poster man.
Juan Pierre's career .710 OPS with a .297 batting average would put him up here, but it wouldn't be as glaringly obvious if his stolen bases were accounted for.
