Freeman’s ‘hot May’ keeps him on track for second MVP

Freddie Freeman (34, Los Angeles Dodgers), who is in the second year of a long-term contract, is on pace to win his second Most Valuable Player (MVP) award of his career.

Through 57 games of the season, Freeman is batting .346 with 10 home runs, 35 doubles, 49 RBIs, 79 runs scored, a .420 slugging percentage and a 1.008 OPS.

To close out April, his slash line was .292 with a .377 OPS and .828 on-base percentage. This month, however, he’s batting over .400 with an OPS in the low 1.100s.

Freeman also has a FWAR of 2.9 and a wRC+ of 169, which rank first and third among all major leaguers in those categories. Top 3 in the majors in overall performance.토토사이트

Add to that the fact that the Los Angeles Dodgers have allowed the Arizona Diamondbacks to catch them with their recent slide, and they still hold the lead in the National League West.

A perfect blend of individual and team performance. As a result, Freeman is currently the favourite to win the National League MVP.

Freeman’s MVP candidacy is largely due to his big jump in performance last month. After posting an OPS of 0.854 in April, Freeman jumped to 1.186 last month.

If Freeman wins MVP this season, it will be the second time in his career and the first time in three years since the 2020 season, when he won the shortened version of the award.

The Los Angeles Dodgers signed Freeman to a $162 million contract before last season. Freeman is expected to remain a model contract in his mid-30s.

His biggest competition will be Ronald Acuña Jr. (26) of the hometown Atlanta Braves. Acuña Jr. is a favourite to reach 30 homers and 50 steals.
