Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Shohei Ohtani fight inch by inch to be the King of Home Run

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Shohei Ohtani lead the Home Run Derby.

Tthe 22-year-old Canadian,Vladimir Guerreo Jr, as the Japanese 26, Shohei Ohtani, share the top home runs in MLB this season. Vladimir, who plays for the Toronto Blue Jays, he’s been in 70 games this season, hitting 85 hits and hitting 23 home runs, the most so far.

Meanwhile, with three games less (67), Los Angeles Angels’ Ohtani Shares Top With Vlady Jr in home runs, but the Japanese had 65 hits, 20 less than the Canadian.

They both live a dream season, in which Vladimir Guerrero tops MLB stats based on his on-base plus slugging, which is measured by a player’s percentage of both for on base to hit hard, with 1,111 OPS.

Ohtani is not far from Vlady, and he’s only in fifth place, with 1,005 OPS. On-base plus slugging scale it is separated into seven categories, measuring from .5666 or less upwards, with .9000 or greater being the best position on the scale.

The same way, Vladimir Jr, along with Jesse Winker, are third in the list of most hits, only behind Nicholas Castellanos (89) and Cedric Mullins (86). This makes the work of Shohei Otani, who is also a pitcher, more striking and praiseworthy, since he has achieved the same home runs as the first place, with only 65 hits, that is, 35.38% of his hits ended in a home run.

The Ohtani’s work, being a pitcher and batter, it requires more effort and is a quality less and less recurrent in today’s baseball. But more spectacular is the personal statistic of Fernando Tatís Jr, the 22-year-old Dominican who plays shortstop for the San Diego Padres.

Tatís Jr is second in the ranking of OPS, with 1,039, and in just 55 games he has thrown 22 home runs, the second that has the most this season.

Fernando is the least times he has played among the top 17 classified according to his OPS, and with only 57 hits he has scored 22 home runs, so 38.59% of his hits end in home runs.
