MLB’s Top Storylines

We’re coming close to the summer months where the MLB is our only source of daily action. The NBA Finals, Stanley Cup and French Open occupy a lot of today’s sports news, and while we’ll get back to those three this week, let’s take a quick look at some of the MLB’s top storylines, starting with this lovely stat ⚾️

The Yankees look good after a bad stretch of injuries, but the top story of the season actually comes from another Florida team not named the Heat or the Panthers. Marlins second baseman Luis Arraez is having an insane season, batting a league-best .392 with 80 hits on 204 at bats, and only one HR that came earlier this season during his cycle game 👀

To put his crazy batting average into perspective, no one has finished a season above .370 since Ichiro Suzuki back in 2004. Arraez has over 100 games to go and will likely cool off, but coming anywhere close to Ichiro’s average would be one of the best hitting seasons in the last few decades 🔥

Another storyline from a few weeks back was the hot start of 23-year-old Christopher Morel, who went on an insane stretch for the Cubs in May 👇

Unfortunately Morel has really cooled off over the last 5+ games, but that’s expected for a young hitter. I mean he was on pace for 95 HRs, which was obviously never going to happen, but I don’t think many saw this cold of a stretch coming 🥶

On the HR front, it’s pretty incredible that Aaron Judge (19) is right there with Pete Alonso’s league-leading 21 HRs, considering Judge has played in 11 less games. He’s been absolutely dominant over the last season and a half 💪

Even more impressive? Judge is doing this vs. AL East, the only division in the MLB where every team has a winning record 🙏
