‘Weekly batting average of 0.458+4 home runs’ Ohtani runs toward the second ‘Weekly MVP’ of the season and the first jitter MVP in history

Shohei Ohtani (30, Los Angeles Dodgers), who has been showing amazing performances in June, was named the MVP of this season’s second week. He has started running for his third MVP.

메이저사이트 The Major League Baseball secretariat said on the 25th that Ohtani was selected as the National League Player of the Week. It is the second time in the season and the ninth time in his career since May 7.

Over the past week, Ohtani had 11 hits in 24 times at bat in six games, posting a batting average of 0.458, four homers, 11 RBIs, eight runs and 11 hits, an on-base percentage of 0.567, a slugging percentage of 1.083 and an OPS (on-base percentage) of 1.60. He had hits in every game and made home runs in four games. He also led his team’s batters with RBIs in games where no home runs were made.

As a result, Ohtani’s performance has gone up vertically. His OPS for this season, which stood at 0.988 after the last game last week, has now risen to 1.031.

Ohtani recorded a batting average of 0.321, 23 homers, 57 RBIs, 61 runs and 97 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.398 OPS 1.031 in 76 games during the season until the 24th. He ranks first in the National League in batting average, home runs, runs and OPS. In particular, Ohtani has shown remarkable performance as he took the leadoff after his teammate Mookie Betts (32) left the team due to a broken hand.

Ohtani aims to become MVP based on his outstanding performance in June, his third designated hitter in Major League history. In the meantime, no designated hitter has been named MVP in the Major League. He has a lower “defensive contribution” than fielders. Since 1973, when the designated hitter system was introduced, Paul Molitor (1993), Frank Thomas (2000), and David Otis (2005) ranked second in MVP voting.

Ohtani failed to win a single first place vote in a mock vote of 45 experts conducted by MLB.COM in April, but ranked first with 25 first place votes in a mock vote announced on June 18. If he continues his tremendous run in June, he has a good chance of writing a new history in the Major League.
