Seager Returns to Top, Trout Surges in Stats Perform’s MLB Leaderboards

By: Stats Perform

Corey Seager of the Los Angeles Dodgers has returned to the top of the Raw Value+ rankings after Juan Soto of the Washington Nationals had taken over the spot last week. Having played only twice since Sept. 3, Soto (223 RV+) fell eight plate appearances shy of the 130 needed to qualify for the leaderboards.

Mike Trout, who led the majors with a 186 RV+ last season, is making a move after a slow start. He was hitting .255 while performing well under many of his career averages before batting .405 with six homers, four doubles and 14 RBIs over his last 12 games. All the while, The Los Angeles Angels star jumped from a 177 RV+ to 193 over a one-week stretch.

Miguel Sano of the Minnesota Twins, Hanser Alberto of the Baltimore Orioles and Brandon Nimmo of the New York Mets remain in first in BIP+, Contact+ and Discipline+, respectively.

On the pitching leaderboards, Jacob deGrom of the New York Mets extended his push toward a possible third straight NL Cy Young Awards by retaining the top spots in Raw Value- and Whiff+. Zach Davies of the San Diego Padres continues to be the Command+ king.

Each week throughout this 60-game sprint, we’ll reveal the offensive leaders in RV+, BIP+, Contact+, Discipline+ and the pitching leaders in RV-, Command+ and Whiff+.

Here are this week’s rankings (through Sept. 10). Pitchers needed to face at least 140 batters to qualify:
