I wonder if he does have a shot at a batting title or rookie of the year? Does anyone know what the cutoff is and if he played everyday from here on out if he has a shot? I doubt he hits this way for much longer and I agree with a potential cold spell coming, but damn....
He's definately qualified for Rookie of the Year, since this year he is considered a rookie.
In order to qualify for batting titles in averaged categories (Avg, Slg, OBP, OPS, RC, OW%, #P/PA, G/F), a player must average at least 3.1 plate appearances for every game his team has played.
Detroit has played 99 games.
Shelton (if the season ended now) would need 307 PA. He has 188.
Shelton is averaging (in 49 GP) 3.84 PA per game.
At the end of the season, Detroit will have played 162 games.
Shelton would need 503 PA. At his current pace, he will have 430 PA.
To reach the needed abount of PA, Shelton either needs to average 5.00 PA per game from here on out, or the season would need to be 181 games long.
