Freddy hasn't had back-to-back hitless starts since May 5 and 6. He's hitting .323 vs. righties and .478 vs. lefties. Over .400 at home and .314 on the road....I can go on quoting splits but I won't.
The point is that he's not showing any "fluky" splits. He didn't have one month that was absurdly better...he hasn't gotten a freakish number of ABs vs. lefties, etc. etc. The kid's for real. I think he hits .320 in the second half easy, unless he really fatigues.
The runs and RBI's are real too. Offensively the Pirates aren't as bad as everyone thinks they are. If you normalize his stats to a 600-at bat season, he's projecting to 101 runs and 98 RBIs. If those numbers still make him a 1-category player, then you're in a much shallower league than I am.
