Strong Player Starts (and Not) From Around The League: American League East
Yesterday we explored hot (and not) starts from players around the National League East, withBryce Harper leading the way. Today we focus on the American League East and who is off to blazing starts and exploring to find those that are not.
Mark Trumbo, OF – Trumbo has already hit 5 homers in 11 games for Baltimore and is hitting .386 with 11 RBI, and 1.163 OPS to this point
Manny Machado, 3B – Machado is just a little less hot than Trumbo, as he has started off with a .383 average, 4 homers, 4 doubles, 5 RBI, and a 1.155 OPS
Chris Davis, 1B – Yes, Davis has hit 5 home runs and I guess it can be said he is making the most of his 9 hits, but he is hitting just .225 and has struck out 16 times so far
