As you can see, hitting .400 in a season is a very difficult task. It’s hard to keep hitting well throughout the season. If you start and finish a game, you”ll often have four or five at-bats. You have to have multiple hits in every game to get over the 4% mark. It’s really hard.
Luis Araúez (26, Miami Marlins) is chasing his dream of a 4% batting average, but his bat has gone cold. The 26-year-old is trying to conquer his first four-figure batting average in 82 years, but he’s struggling. He is batting just .154 in his last four games. He is 2-for-13 with two doubles and has forgotten his batting average. His season average has slipped to .369.
After going 2-for-5 against the Texas Rangers on the 5th, his bat went cold. He went 1-for-4 the next day, and then went 0-for-1 as a pinch-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds on the 7th. On the 8th, he went 0-for-4 against Cincinnati, and on the 9th, he faced the Reds again and went 1-for-4.
바카라사이트 He’s definitely not hitting well in August. He’s just 9-for-37 with a .243 batting average. That’s down from .429 in March, .439 in April, .330 in May, .406 in June, and .354 in July. In nine games, he’s only had two multi-hit games. He hasn’t had a game with more than three hits.
His bat hasn’t been spinning as well as it should, and his plate discipline has deteriorated. He didn’t draw a single walk in nine games in August. His on-base percentage is .243, the same as his batting average over the same period. He has just one RBI and no home runs. He’s struck out four times. All of his overall hitting metrics are down.
Miami now has 46 games left in the regular season. They still have more than a quarter of the season to play. It’s not like they don’t have a chance to turn things around, but their stamina is dwindling towards the end of the season. His recent slump is also a negative factor. Araúez’s chances of reaching a 40% batting average for the season are fading.
