[ED: Again, much obliged to BeardedGinger.]
The following stats will be through Sunday June 3rd, not today (June 6).
Lance Lynn (Cardinals)- Lance continues to dominate through the National League this season. Lynn is now 8-2 (the 8 wins is tied for the most in all of baseball) with a 2.63 ERA, which is good for 12th best in the NL. He has a WHIP of 1.13, which is good for 18th in the NL, and an Opp. BA of .215, which is good for 9th best in the NL. He also has a 2.6:1 K:BB ratio. The numbers don't lie and Lynn has been one of the best pitchers in the NL thus far.
Chris Coghlan (Marlins)- Upon being called up on May 20th, his batting average has risen from .105 to .163. During that time, he did hit his first HR of the season. Coghlan's struggles since winning NL Rookie of the Year two years ago still baffles me. His .169 BA is well below his career avg of .275. He definitely has the potential, but it just simply isn't translating at the plate.Zack Cozart (Reds)- Zack is currently hitting .240 with 6 HRs and 14 RBIs through 52 games this season. He is currently swinging a pretty hot bat with a .364 avg over the past 7 days with 1 HR and 2 RBIs. Zack is still flashing some pretty good leather out at SS as well. Zack plays much better at home (.328) than on the road (.176). This isn't surprising but if Zack can start swinging better on the road he could be a .300 hitter.
Seth Smith (A's)- Seth's batting average has dipped down to .217. He has 4 HRs on the season with 12 RBIs. He has 24 BBs which bumps his OBP to a respectable .357. He is hitting .333 over the past week. (Missed cycle on Monday by a HR, but more on this in this upcoming week's writeup)
Alex Presley (Pirates)- Nothing really new to report on Presley except he was sent down to the minors on May 15th and got called back up yesterday (June 6th). He is hitting .228 with 2 HRs and 7 RBIs on the season. (He did have a good game on Monday but that will be in this week's writeup)
No news on Pomeranz and when or if he will be called back up anytime soon.
