CREAM OF THE CROP
How an exciting new reality is taking shape for Astros slugger Chas McCormick
Chas McCormick continues to dominate this season. Is it fair to call him the top CF in the American League, over guys like Julio Rodriguez and Luis Robert?
While many people might scoff at the thought of McCormick being a better center fielder than Julio Rodriguez, the numbers tell a very interesting story. Chas currently has a .917 OPS and Rodriguez is sitting at .798. That's a big difference. How about slugging percentage? McCormick .544, Rodriguez .462.
Finally, let's look at home runs. Julio has Chas beat with 21 to McCormick's 19. But Rodriguez has over 500 at-bats and McCormick has less than 300.
Be sure to watch the video above as Jeremy Branham makes his case for McCormick.
