Week 2 of Who’s Hot and Who’s Not!
- Updated: April 30, 2012
Get ready for week 2 of Who’s hot and Who’s not!
Omar Infante: After coming back from injury, Infante is on a little hot streak going 6 for 14 on his 5 game hit streak.
My Analysis: As long as his groin is fully healed, I think he’ll be back to where his was at the beginning of the season, including more home runs hit. It seems that he is getting back into his swing.
Anibal Sanchez: His last 2 starts he has pitched 14 innings, given up 8 hits, 4 runs, and had a whopping 22 strikeouts. As long as he is pitching like he is, the Marlins will have a shot in the future
My Analysis: Many experts picked him as a long shot to be a contender for Cy Young, and it shows. I think if he keeps this up for the season and finishes the season with 200+ K’s, he will be moved to the #3 spot, possibly #2, in the rotation next year.
Hanley Ramirez: YIKES! After starting the year in the mid .220’s, he had a little hot streak to boost his average to .300. But since then, he has gone a horrible 1 for 25. His BA has dropped to .205.
My Analysis: Once Ramirez gets out of this slump and goes on another hot streak, he’ll be more motivated and want to get better. I don’t know If this has anything to do with his lack of defense at 3B, but they don’t call it the hot corner for nothing
Jose Reyes: Just like Hanley, he is struggling bad. He is 2 for his last 17. His average has dropped to a dismal .205 and he has been taken out, or not played the last 4 games.
My Analysis: Is he hiding an injury? He certainly isn’t earning the contract he signed in the off season. I honestly don’t think he’ll recover to the .300 we all want, but he’ll finish the season in the .260 range. Look for Bonifacio to become the permanent lead off guy.
So Long for next week!
