So by my math, Uggla has averaged 20.5 HRs after May the past 2 seasons. Considering he is now older, stronger, more experienced, I assume he can get probably 21-25ish HRs after this month (especially if he can keep a higher average, like .280, unlike last year when he only batted about .240 after May)...and this month still has 14 more days in it. By that math, lets say he hits at least 2 more HRs in May...and then continues to hit...23 Hrs for the rest of the year...that ends him with 13+2+23 = 38 HRs?
So 38 HRs. At age 28.
Okay, then average. He has hit .250 after May in his career. Considering he has never had this great of a start, well actually he batted .313 through his rookie year (I assume because pitchers hadn't adjusted to him yet), but anyway...he was only batting .264 through May last year. Now that he has seen 2 full years of MLB pitching, has gotten experience, , why isn't it safe to assume he could potentially hit .270-.280 the remainder of the season?
Also, considering he is hitting at the #5 spot, and without MCab there now, his RBI totals should go up, with Hanley and Mike Jacobs and Hermida in front of him.
With all that said...if he hit .275 the remainder of the season and assuming within 600 ABs, he would end up with an average of: .285
So based on my analysis, he would end up with something like this:
35-38 HRs, 95+ RBI, .285
Not bad for someone I picked up of Waivers the first day of May.
