Miguel Andujar has done outstanding since the Pittsburgh Pirates recalled him at the start of September, but is his recent hot streak too good to be true?
The Pittsburgh Pirates recalled Miguel Andujar as part of their September call-ups. So far, it’s looked like a brilliant decision. Entering play on Thursday night, Andujar hit .333/.371/.606 through his first 35 plate appearances since getting promoted. Andujar then went 3-for-4 with a double and 3 RBIs on Thursday night. He already has six extra-base hits, including four doubles and two home runs. Andujar hasn’t walked very much, with just two bases on balls to his name in September, but he’s also only struck out four times.
Andujar has undoubtedly been one of the hottest hitters in September, but are we jumping the gun? Is Miguel Andujar’s recent hot streak the real deal? Or is his recent stretch just a mirage that’s too good to be true? Today, I want to make an argument for both sides and let readers decide to make their own opinion.
