Cubs Quick Hits: Javy Baez Tops Several MLB Leaderboards
Javy Baez is leading MLB in several categories going into this week of baseball. You won’t find another second baseman with a higher wOBA than Javy’s .447 or another with an wRC+ greater than the 187 he’s posted to this point.
Javy’s overall standing on the offensive leaderboards is eye-popping, too. The electric infielder is third in slugging percentage and 10th overall in wRC+. More impressive, I think, is that Javy’s isolated power (ISO) of .444 is the highest in MLB. And not only is he just collecting extra base hits, but he’s knocking in runs at the same time, as his RBI total of 23 is best in MLB with Jed Lowrie.
Welcome to JavyMania, folks, feel free to let it run wild over you with one of these shirts (women’s sizes available too).
