Hottest Hitters Since the All Star Break
- Updated: July 21, 2008
Because this is only a 3 or 4 game sample size, we are seeing players who would not normally make it onto this list. You should also take into account, the lesser amount of games when you look at the table below, remember, this is only over 3 or 4 games.
Topping out this shortened week’s list is Baltimore 3B Melvin Mora who hit 3 HRs in that short period of time while hitting .400 with an OBP of .500. If the O’s are going to be sellers by the trade deadline, Mora might look real good to a team like the Twins or Dodgers who need a solid player at 3B.Another surprise to this list is National’s LF Willie Harris who hit for an average of .583 and an OBP of .688 during these few games since the break. He also hit a HR and stole a base in that span of time.The Mets young 3B, David Wright, keeps on boosting his average back towards .300 while hitting .385 with an OBP of .526 since the All Star Game. He also hit 2 HRs and stole a base as well.Cardinals 3B Troy Glaus is slowing showing the power that management thought he still possessed when making the swap with the Blue Jays for Scott Rolen. In these past few games, Troy has hit 3HRs while batting .438 with an OBP of .471. Does anyone know how Rolen is doing for the Jays?Rounding out the top 5 is Baltimore DH/OF Luke Scott who hit 3 HRs while hitting .538 with an OBP of .571
At the bottom end of this top 10 list are San Diego 2B Edgar Gonzalez, KC C/DH Billy Butler, Seattle LF Raul Ibanez, Rockies 2B Jeff Baker and last but not least, All Star LF of the Brewers, Ryan Braun.
