Strong Player Starts (and Not) From Around The League: National League West
Moving on from both theNational League andAmerican League Centraldivisions yesterday, we focus on the west today, starting with the NL West, where some unlikely trends are starting to form and surprise players are carrying teams.
Trevor Story, SS – Story is coming back down to earth after homering in 4 straight to start the season and in 5 of his first 6 games. Teams are starting to figure him out, although he’s still hitting .274 with 2 doubles, 2 triples, and 8 homers to go with 1.071 OPS. The downside; however is that pitchers have found holes and have struck Trevor out 25 times
Carlos Gonzalez, OF – Nolan Arenado could go here with his 6 dingers and 16 RBI, however CarGo’s average of .367 is what gets him in to this spot, which includes 5 doubles, a triple, 4 homers, and 11 RBI to go with the 1.099 OPS
