Best Hitters from July 21st-27th
- Updated: July 28, 2008
It seems as if the move to LF hasn’t affected Arizona 1B/LF Conor Jackson offensively what-so-ever as he sits atop our list again this week with a line of 9/3/7/1/.542/.593 (R/HR/RBI/SB/BA/OBP).
Another LF sits in the # 2 spot this week as the White Sox Carlos Quentin was 1 of 4 players on this top 10 list who hit 4 HRs this past week.
With 3 SB and 3 HRs the Phillies CF Shane Victorino is 3rd on this week’s list.
As one of the only players who seem to be hitting in San Diego this year, Adrian Gonzalez had yet another great week! He continues to hit HRs (3) in a non-Homer-Friendly ballpark (as well as on the road) and RBIs in what seems to be an otherwise, anemic line up for the Padres.
The month of July has seen the return of the old bat of the Met’s Carlos Delgado as he is once again hitting around .280 in this time and swatting HRs (4). He’s the only player in this top 10 list with double digit RBIs (10).
Rounding out the bottom 5 players of this list are the red hot Brewer’s LF Ryan Braun and Pirate’s 1B Adam LaRoche , both of whom hit 4 HRs this week while hitting .400 or better (LaRoche even had an OBP of .500). They are joined by White Sox RF Jermaine Dye who continues to dominate and last come two relative unknowns outside of their team’s fan base in the Angel’s C Jeff Mathis and Ranger’s 1B Chris Davis. Mathis, who is a catcher, actually had a stolen base to add to his impressive week. What catcher not named Martin does that often (aside from the Pirate’s Doumit who also stole a base this week, but he can also play in the OF)?
