July Award Race Updates

Having entered July, the half-way point of the MLB regular season is quickly passing by. This means that the well-known stars should be producing at usual levels, while players who may have seemed to be overachieving, or underachieving, are starting to show their true colors. As I have done in previous months, I will use a few all-encompassing statistics to get a general idea of which players are in competition for baseball’s major awards. If you would like a more in depth explanation about this update, then please refer to last month’s article HERE.
