Some of these players had their most productive offensive month in years, some are defensive minded players doing better on offense than they ever have before, and some may just be coming into their own as a hitter.
About Bobby Down
Bobby was born in Southern California in the Los Angeles area, and never wants to leave because other places are bad, especially where Kory has lived. Bobby loves baseball and the Dodgers more than just about anything. His favorite player of all-time is the best pitcher of this generation, Clayton Kershaw. If you slander Kershaw in any way, Bobby will know and will teleport into the discussion to smite you down with advanced statistics every which way. You can also catch Bobby arguing with Baseline Times’ very own Dustin Shires that all started with Tim Lincecum from years and years ago. Thanks, Dustin, this is all your fault. Bobby writes baseball articles of all kinds, though mostly filled with stats from Fangraphs. Check it out and see if you learn anything new!

Every month in Major League Baseball, there are several players that have an unexpectedly great month. Here are 7 you may have missed
Not everyone seems to realize it, but Matt Kemp has been one of the best hitters this season. In fact, he is tied for 12th in wRC+ with Paul Goldschmidt.
This season is already lost. So, is it time for the Angels to do the unthinkable: Trade Mike Trout? What would that mean for their future?
Yesterday during the Nationals and Giants game, pitcher Hunter Strickland hit Bryce Harper with a fastball on the hip. Harper took exception to this.
A line of 9 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 BB, and 10 K is not a rare occurrence for Kershaw, but what that line accomplished is truly something special.
I wrote an article about five players off to hot starts who I am buying into. For that list I chose Miguel Sano, Jay Bruce, Justin Upton, Taijuan Walker, and Carlos Carrasco.
Can these players sustain their hot starts? Bobby thinks they can.
April treated baseball fans with an absolute offensive explosion. How does it compare to other seasons, and can some of the hottest players keep it up?
