Who's Hot

Juan Soto (L), Washington

Stay hot young Soto. He entered the All-Star break on a heater and he's picked right up where he left off hitting .522/.621/1.261 with eight runs, five home runs, 12 RBI and two stolen bases in six games starting the second half over 29 plate appearances. He's drawn six walks against three strikeouts in this sample with a robust .739 isolated power, .731 wOBA and ridiculous 364 weighted runs created plus (wRC+) metric. Of his 20 batted ball events, he's produced five barrels (25 percent) and 14 hard hits (exit velocity of 95 MPH-plus) for a hard hit rate of 70 since the onset of the second half. Pretty, pretty, pretty good. Did the Home Run Derby awaken his power?
