It has been far too long since we've checked in with the WTH 25-man roster to see how they're doing. [Note - The What the Heck 25-man roster was compiled through reader votes throughout the off-season.] First the position players ~
Jon Singleton still leads the WTH crew in on-base percentage and slugging percentage, but Austin Wates is now our leader in batting average. George Springer is the WTH RBI leader with 41 while Jon Singleton is a close second with 38. Adam Bailey leads in doubles with 16, George Springer in triples with six, and Springer and Singleton are tied with 11 home runs each. Delino DeShields has the most walks (35) and stolen bases (37), while Springer has the most strikeouts (73). The worst strikeout to walk rate belongs to Jonathan Meyer, the best to Brandon Wikoff with Jordan Scott a close second.
Since we last checked in, Adam Bailey has been promoted from Lancaster to Corpus Christi and Brandon Wikoff was activated from the DL. Chris Wallace spent most of May on the DL as well, and hasn't gotten into a groove at the plate since his return.
Jonathan Villar's batting average has improved vastly since we last checked in on him and he is hitting .279 over his last ten games as well. Roberto Pena is also showing slow but steady improvement in his hitting. Kody Hinze continues to struggle and Chase Davidson has yet to make his season debut.
