Saturday May 11th, 2013

Jordany Valdespin hit yet another HR last night as a player that did not start the game.  Incredibly, this guy has hit 9 HRs in his limited Career for this category (94 AB - versus 2 HRs in 173 AB as a Starter.)

Jordany Valdespin hit yet another HR last night as a player that did not start the game. Incredibly, this guy has hit 9 HRs in his limited Career for this category (94 AB – versus 2 HRs in 173 AB as a Starter.)  The Mets should definitely keep Valdespin in this role.  Unfortunately their OF for 2013 is hitting for a Batting Average in the .225 Range.

DH on our home site pages – Stands for Daily HR Hitters in the Majors.

We are going to run the gauntlet on the previous days HRs for all MLB Players.

I loved it when MLB XM Radio used to do a running total every night on their Roundtrip with Mike Ferrin (Laser Show).  So I am bringing it every day on this website.  To view every nights big boppers for the whole year (from May 8th on) visit the DH page!

Click beyond the Youtube link or click  the READ THE REST OF THIS ENTRY ICON to see who hit yesterdays big flies.

Jordany Valdespin goes yard as a PH:

Since 2006 McCann leads Major League Catchers with 151 HR and 581 RBI.  After spending the 1st 30 Games on the DL, the man has clubbed HRs on back to back games in his 3rd and 4th GP of the year.  McCann's contract expires at the end of the year - making him a Free Agent. With Evan Gattis proving his worth as a young Catcher, McCann will need to hit like he did prior to last year

Since 2006 McCann leads Major League Catchers with 151 HR and 581 RBI. After spending the 1st 30 Games on the DL in 2013, the man has clubbed HRs on back to back games in his 3rd and 4th GP of the year. McCann’s contract expires at the end of the campaign – making him a Free Agent. With Evan Gattis proving his worth as a young Catcher, McCann will need to hit like he did prior to last year – in order to have the Braves offer him a fair deal to continue as the club’s Backstop. beyond 2013.

The New York Yankees continued their surprising power surge Friday night despite missing several of their top HR hitters from 2013.

The Kansas City Royals have had two players carry HRs in 3 game streaks this week with Mike Moustakas and Alex Gordon

Alejandro De Aza has shown promising power as the White Sox Lead off hitter – and is second on the club for HRs this year.  He has gone back to back nights with taters.

Brendan Harris may be earning himself some more playing time in Anaheim with HRs in 2 straight games – and has an .809 OPS in 69 At – Bats this year.  The 32 Year Old from Queensbury, NY has played SS/2B/1B and 3B this season.

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at https://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
