Top 10 MLB Designated Hitters of 2011
The Top Ten
It is a blowout. Michael Young doesn't have the DH power along with V-Mart.
Ortiz is batting.304 with 19 HRs, 55 RBIs, and A.391 OBP, through the first half of the season.
Martinez, the DH/catcher/first basemen for the Detroit Tigers is batting.316 with 6 HRs and 50 RBIs in just 282 At-bats.
Damon is having an above satisfactory comeback season with the Rays, as he is batting a respectable.279 with 9 HRs and 41 RBIs in the #2 hole for the Tampa Bay Rays.
Butler's power numbers look to be down a bit this year (6 HRs, 38 RBIs), but he is still a well above average, middle-of-the-order man for the struggling Royals. He is batting.294 with A.390 OBP through the first half.
Pronk has only played 51 games this year due to injury, but in the games he has been able to play, he is batting.325 with 8 jacks, 35 RBIs, and A.406 OBP.
Abreu is no longer the 30-30 man he used to be, but he still boasts A.277 AVG, and 13 SBs with A.394 OBP.V 1 Comment
Georgie will never be behind the plate again, and most likely will never hit 20 HRs and 85 RBIs again, but I sill give him credit for turning around an AVG below.200 and bringing it up to.230. His power numbers are respectable as well as he has 9 HRs in just 226 ABs.
Vlad's numbers have dropped considerably from last year, but he is still one of the key cogs in a much improved Baltimore lineup. He is batting.279 with 7 HRs and 31 RBIs. His 35 HR, 100 RBI days are over.
