2013 MLB NL MVP Race: Trio batting over .400 after two weeks

Updated on April 15, 2013

We have finished two weeks of the 2013 MLB season. After those two weeks three players are still batting over .400 and leading the charge for the MVP award. The season is very early and lots of games are still to be played.

A 23-year old kid from the Dominican Republic is leading the league in batting. Jean Segura of the Milwaukee Brewers in his first full season in the majors is having a great season. He has played in ten games and has a .417 batting average. Here is his stat line: 15-36 3Runs 2 Doubles,1 Triple,1 Home run, Three RBIs, 4 walks(one was intentional). He has a .462 on base percentage. Segura also has a .611 slugging percentage.

Adrian Gonzalez of the Los Angeles Dodgers is batting .409 thru 12 games played so far. The 30th year old native of San Diego is having a great season so far. His stat line is: 18-44 three runs, three doubles, two home runs, 10 RBIs, seven walks(one was intentional). He has a .490 on base percentage and a .614 slugging percentage.

The last player is Chris Johnson of the Atlanta Braves. Johnson is from Naples, Florida and played college ball at Stetson. The 28 year-old is batting .405 in ten games. His stat line reads: 15-37 six runs, one double, one home run, four RBIs, one walk. He has a .436 on base percentage and a .514 slugging percentage.

These are just three players that have started the season off hot and have put themselves in position to be included in the MVP discussion. Johnson and Segura I can see will fall off a little bit as the season wears on. Gonzalez is a player that is a real threat for the award.

Does one of these players win MVP award

      Yo Adrian. Yeah, I'll take him in the National League. Not just because I have him on my fantasy team.

      And Miguel Cabrera in the American League, again. Yeah, I got him on my fantasy team too.

      Those two guys both have sweet swings.
