A strong April doesn’t guarantee a record-breaking season, but there isn’t a Major League Baseball team that doesn’t want its top hitters starting the year on a hot note.
Every once in a while, a ridiculous April lead to some interesting conversations. We travel back to a little over a year ago when Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers put together one of the most spectacular months of all-time. In 84 at-bats, the center field hit .417/.490/.893 with 12 home runs and 25 RBI.
But it was still extremely exciting to watch Kemp hit for that short period of time, even if he didn’t produce like he did in April all year long and the Dodgers actually missed the postseason.
April production should be taken lightly and is no means a precursor of what’s to come for the remaining months of season. That being said, we can still predict who is going to have a big month and who might start off slow. Here are the stat-line predictions for the best hitters in the game.
