Soto, deGrom Take Over Top Spots in Stats Perform’s MLB Leaderboards

By: Stats Perform

Juan Soto of the Washington Nationals and Jacob deGrom of the New York Mets are the big movers in Stats Perform’s MLB leaderboards this week.

Soto has four home runs in his last seven games and has finally qualified for the rankings after missing time due to COVID-19 exposure. DeGrom appears to be making a push to join Randy Johnson and Greg Maddux as the only pitchers to win three straight Cy Young Awards. He’s allowed just two earned runs while striking out 30 in 19 innings over his last three starts.

Soto replaces Corey Seager of the Los Angeles Dodgers atop the Raw Value+ top 10, while deGrom moves ahead of former Raw Value- leader Trevor Bauer of the Cincinnati Reds and past Shane Bieber of the Cleveland Indians in Whiff+.

Each week throughout this 60-game sprint, we’ll reveal the offensive leaders in RV+, BIP+, Contact+ and Discipline+ and the pitching leaders in RV-, Command+ and Whiff+. Here are this week’s rankings (through Sept. 2). Batters needed a minimum of 110 plate appearances, while pitchers needed to face at least 120 batters to qualify:
