Both these guys are slumping huge but It's funny how Beltre is considered one of the worst hitters in baseball but Aramis is automatic to turn things around.
551 R 170 HR 617 RBI 74 SB .269 AVG
452 R 168 HR 582 RBI 10 SB .275 AVG
Note: Aramis has played in a lot less games but is also a year older than Beltre.
-Beltre is now batting #2 in Seattle, who has the 14th best team Batting Avg compared to Aramis batting 5th in Chicago, the 27th best (or 4th to last) best team batting average.
-Beltre is known to be a second half player
Career 1st Half:
2255 AB 265 R 73 HR 284 RBI .258 AVG
Career 2nd Half:
2041 AB 286 R 97 HR 333 RBI .282 AVG
-Aramis is pretty even 1st and half, but adds power in the 2nd half usually (450 less career 2nd half ABs, but 2 more HRs)
-Beltre Career AB/HR = 25.27
-Aramis Career AB/HR = 20.91
Conclusion: Aramis is obviously the better player, I'm not trying to say Beltre will have better stats than Aramis. Aramis has more power but Beltre is a very similar player, and is in a very high run producing situation now in the #2 spot for Seattle. If you have hope for Aramis then have hope for Beltre as well.
