Marlins’ Luis Arraez Discusses Approach at Plate

Miami Marlins veteran second baseman and impressive hitter Luis Arraez has had an impressive start to the regular season, leading all qualified hitters with a whopping .383 batting average to go along with a .908 OPS during his first season in Miami.

Should this continue, it could be a historic season for Arraez as would become the first MLB player to lead the American League and National League in batting average in consecutive years, and if he can raise his batting average he could be the first player to hit the .400 batting average mark since Boston Red Sox great Ted Williams accomplished the feat back in 1953.

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports, Arraez is confident he can do something special this season.

“I mean it’s hard to hit .400,” Arraez said.  “But it’s not impossible. If I hit .400, I’d have to stay healthy, work hard every day, and have the little things go right. The pitchers are so good. I just got to keep in mind to stay strong, and try to hit the ball hard every day…Baseball has changed a little bit, or maybe it’s changed a lot, but everybody wants to hit homers. Me, I prefer getting on base, and just hitting the ball.”

Arraez knows that staying in top shape and continuing intense focus will be the key to accomplishing the feats, and you can follow his career by following the top sports media journalists in the industry.
