Top 25 Batters – 6/27/2013

Last year’s Triple Crown winner and AL MVP, Miguel Cabrera, retains the top spot based on total production.  He’s followed by Chris Davis, Joey Votto, Carlos Gonzalez, and Paul Goldschmidt.  David Ortiz and Troy Tulowitzki, who have both missed time this year with injuries round out the top ten in total production, though their yearly production numbers would have them both near the top.  Though the leader in yearly production at this point is a little guy named Yasiel Puig.  While his total production of 264 is limited by a small number of plate appearances, his yearly production of 1679 is the best in the league.  Even better than Miguel Cabrera’s 1643.  At this point I am obligated to say “small sample size”.  Not quite as dramatic, but still very impressive is Jose Iglesias who is currently ranked 80th in total production with 351, but his yearly production is a Puig-like 1536.  It’ll be interesting to see how these guys finish at the end of the year.

Cheers.

Yearly Production for a player is the approximate number of runs a team would score if the entire lineup consisted of the same player.

Total Production is weighted by the number of plate appearances.
