Five MLB Standouts


Looking at some players/numbers that stick out across MLB…

Hey, why would anyone want Adam Dunn? I think I made that clear in the offseason as I basically begged for a Chicago team to sign him. He’s doing what he usually does. The guy who has hit 40 or more homers for the last 5 seasons has 18 this year, putting him on that pace again. He also has 55 BBs, an OBP over .400 and a slugging percentage of .529.

Justin Upton started to fulfill his potential last year. This year he is bringing it full-throttle. He’s hitting .321/.401/.583 with 13 homers and 9 steals.

The Rays lead all of baseball in runs scored and a big part of their attack has been Ben Zobrist. Zobrist has 15 homers and an OPS over 1.000. His slugging is a gaudy .644.

Torii Hunter has never had an OPS over.858 for a full season. He’s hovering right around 1.000 right now with 16 homers. He’s on pace for career-highs in average, walks, OBP, SLG and even steals. He turns 34 next month.

Russell Branyan has had some moments in his career, but never has he done anything close to what he is doing in 2009. Branyan is hitting over .300, which is insane considering he is a lifetime .237 hitter. He has 16 homers and his OBP is over .400 with a SLG approaching .600. Amazing.

    I’ve always been on the fence with Dunn. Yes, he’s got great power and always walks a lot, BUT he strikes out a ton, only hits around .250, and he’s a horrible outfielder.
