Triple Milestone Targets 2013
With four weeks to go, only two players are on target for triple milestones of a .300 batting average, 30 home runs and 100 RBIs but six others are close. Only one pitcher is on target for the milestones of 20 wins, 200 strikeouts and an ERA less than 3.00. No other pitchers are close.
At this point in the season, a batter must have a batting average of .300, 25 home runs and 85 RBIs to be on target. To be considered close, he must have a batting average of .290, 23 home runs and 80 RBIs.
A pitcher must have 17 wins, 169 strikeouts and an ERA of less than 3.00 to be on target. To be considered close, he must have 16 wins, 159 strikeouts and an ERA of less than 3.15.
Here are the players who are on target or close:
|Miguel Cabrera||.358||43||133||Has it made with room to spare|
|Robinson Cano||.305||25||89||On target but needs home runs and RBI|
|Chris Davis||.298||47||122||Needs a couple of points on batting average|
|Paul Goldschmidt||.295||31||104||Close but short on batting average|
|Adrian Beltre||.327||28||82||A little short on RBI|
|Adam Jones||.293||28||98||Close and coming on strong|
|David Ortiz||.312||24||85||Close but needs home runs|
|Mike Trout||.335||23||82||Close but needs home runs and RBI|
No pitcher other than Max Scherzer is on pace for more than 15 wins. Since pitchers wins are not controllable, it’s interesting to look at which pitchers are on target on both strikeouts and ERA but not wins.
|Max Scherzer||19-1||2.90||201||On target but ERA could be problem|
