Hot MLB Hitters
- Updated: July 7, 2008
With 6 HRs, 12 RBIs, 1 SB to go along with a .559 BA and a .583 OBP Brewers SS J.J. Hardy edges out Marlins OF Cody Ross as this past week’s hottest hitter.
Ross hit 2 HRs while knocking in 16 runs and hitting .500 with a .526 OBP.
Rounding out the top half of this week’s list are the Rockies LF Matt Holliday who collected 10 RBIs and stole 3 bases, the Reds 2B Brandon Phillips who also knocked in 10 RBIs, but stole 4 bases and the Marlins SS Hanley Ramirez with his 4 HRs and a stolen base of his own.
The Yankees All Star 3B Alex Rodriguez hits this list at # 6 but he hit under .300 for the week, but did hit 3 HRs and swiped 3 bases.
Next is the Dodgers rookie OF Andre Ethier who scored 10 runs while also hitting 3 HRs. Baltimore’s Nick Markakis also scored 10 runs with a HR and hit close to .400 (.389) this week. The Cubs man of many positions, Mark DeRosa, hit 3 HRs while knocking in 10 RBIs to rank 9th on this list.
Last, but not least is another Rockies player, fellow OF Brad Hawpe. Brad has been hitting the long ball since his return from the DL and this week was no different as he hit 3 and also swiped a base, too. Unfortunately, he is also the only player in this top 10 to hit under (gulp) .200 for the week (.154), but did host an OBP of .333.
As a reminder, I use a 6 metric tool to compile these weekly lists. I use the basic Roto5x5 stats and add OBP to it, just so you know.
