We knew we'd see some strange things in a 60-game season. Cody Bellinger has a 1.286 OPS in his last 10 games after a .490 mark through his first 19. Shohei Ohtani is batting .181 and Christian Yelich .194. Amed Rosario has a 20:0 K:BB in 80 plate appearances. David Dahl in 74 at-bats: 0 HR. Luke Voit in 74 at-bats: 10 HR. With that introduction, here are a few players off to surprisingly good starts:
Magneuris Sierra, OF, MIA
Sierra may not be a full-time starter just yet, as he did not start either Sunday or Monday, but he should get his chance before long. Sierra is batting .278/.372/.417 with four XBH and four steals in 44 plate appearances. He seems unlikely to ever hit for much power and is still looking for his first big league home run after 306 trips to the plate, but the speed is elite. The question was always: Would he hit enough and get on base enough to prove worthy of regular playing time? Prior to this season in 91 games, Sierra's OBP stood at just .282, so while the sample size is low, could he be a guy taking a big step forward with his plate discipline? For a guy with a 3.8 BB percentage at the Triple-A level, it's probably best to be a bit skeptical, but he should at least get more looks to see if the progress is real.
