Here’s our second installment of the Cubs latest Hitting Stats. This time at the All-Star break, just over halfway into the season. Not much has changed, but Javy Baez has taken over.
This time last month, Baez was batting .255 with 62 hits, 14 homers, and 46 RBI. Fast forward 30 days, and he’s been incredible. Baez is currently batting .292 with 100 hits, 19 home runs, and 72 RBI. That’s a tremendous jump from June to July, likely why he made the All-Star team.
Albert Almora, Jason Heyward, Addison Russell, and Ben Zobrist are still producing very solid numbers. David Bote and Victor Caratini have surged over this time period, in a small sample size. Bote got the call to the action with Kris Bryant down and impressed. He’s batting .310 with a homer and 9 RBI in just 20 games. Caratini checks in at .274 with 23 hits since rejoining the Cubs from Iowa.
At this point, the Cubs offense continues to produce the best numbers in baseball. Just about everyone is in a rhythm to this point, and none seem to be slowing down.Cubs Hittings Stats July 2018-2
