So since our last show, Jorge Soler went on a little hot streak, good enough to earn him AL Player of the Week honors. He added six homers to his total, putting him in position to push for a team record, and an unprecedented 40 home runs.
We looked deeper at his season and particularly his past six weeks. He’s finally looking like the player many expected when he signed with the Cubs, but he’s done so by limiting strikeouts, walking more, and not sacrificing power. It’s been impressive, and we’re hoping it’ll be record-setting.
We also talked about Whit Merrifield, Hunter Dozier, and some other milestones Royals hitters are approaching as the season marches on.
