Updated May Stats – Barnes leading the OPS way

May Record – 17/8

National League West Position – 2nd place, 1 1/2 games back of the Rockies who have gone 17/9 in May. 

The plus side:

  • The great May is being led by five players who were not in the starting lineup on opening day.
  • Austin Barnes in part-time play is leading the team in OPS in May.
  • Chris Taylor is now the starting CF, and we all know his story.
  • Grandal is the only opening day starter to crack the top seven in OPS in May.
  • Bellinger is will on his way to having a May for the ages even though it is his first May.
  • Eibner in limited play continues to produce.
  • Kiké Hernández has been an XBH beast and has the second most doubles even though he’s only had 60 plate appearances.
  •  Chase Utley throttled time and is doing everything asked of him in May.

On the down side:

  • Forsythe has had one hit in May but at least he made it count.
  • Puig has run into a few home runs but that has been the extent of his offensive contributions. On the other hand, he’s playing some of the best right field I’ve ever seen.
  • Seager has been human. He’s not bad, but he’s not great, and so far in his young career, we’ve only been used to great.
