has been eight days season. That said, there is no doubt that it is too early to make any predictions based on our circumstances already seen.
but although it 10; Prediction is too early, it this is the perfect time to be optimistic. Because while no qualified baseball batter can sport. 458 At the end of the day, a hot start can dramatically change the narrative of a player or team.
With this, here is exist
All stats as of Friday, April 8.
Adam Duvall, Red Sox
Roaming Franco, Ray
. 291/ .394/.727, 3 2B, 3 HR, 8 RBI
It feels a little unfair to ask if Franco “finally” broke out this year. He’s still just He’s been doing really well at the major league level so far, hitting. 103/.122/.394 OPS+ for
Yoán Moncada, White Sox
.333/.394/.626, 4 2B, 2 HR
Taylor Ward, Angel
.122/.369/.480, 2B, 2 HR, 6 RBIs
Granted, we’ve given the angels a hard time because They didn’t have strong supporting cast members Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout. But if you look at their 850 season’s Progressing, the Angels skidded in mid-May, well before Trout was on the injured list, and closer to Ward cooling off after his hot start. That’s not to say the team’s life or death depends on Ward — Ohtani and Trout are still the best players in baseball — but his ability to bridge the gap between the team’s superstars and their backups has been a big deal for the Angels. Saying that means a lot, and they showed up to build a roster for the first time in a while.
Orlando Assia, Warriors
Brian Anderson, Brewers
Anderson got off to a good start in his career in Miami before injuries hampered his progress at
Nolan Gorman, Cardinal
.282/.448/.626, 1.94 OPS, 2 HR , 6 RBIs
as you probably already know That way, baseball hasn’t always been kind to players who need time to settle at the major league level. Gorman, an excellent power hitter even as an amateur, was the Cardinals’ No. 3 prospect when he broke into the big leagues. Then he had a lackluster 850 season , and basically fell off the map. Brendan Donovan played well enough to take second base off him. Gorman has been DHing so far this season, though, and while the Cardinals don’t have room in the roster for another anchor, he’s sure to keep pace with the players St. Louis can’t live without.
.364/.448/1.27, 1.500 OPS, 5 hours, RBI
James Altman, Dodgers
.291/.458/.733, 1.282 Operation, 2 3B, 2 HR
You probably knew about Outman before he even started tearing it up. But he doesn’t get the attention that some rookies do — the Dodgers have a lot going on at the major league level — so as far as you’re concerned, it’s possible he’s just the latest in a string of standout players the Dodgers apparently conjured up out of thin air. of. But that’s important, and not just for his team’s reputation in the player development arena. For the first time in a long time, the Dodgers aren’t the favorites in the NL West, but if Outman is the long-term powerhouse he sees early on, the game between Los Angeles and San Diego could become even more intense. interesting.
