Cubans Abreu and Arozarena battle for several leaders in the American League

With the postseason just around the corner, Cubans José Dariel Abreu and Randy Arozarena march to the forefront of the hits and stolen bases departments, respectively, while they retain options to win the average and doubles within the American circuit.

The White Sox from Cienfuegos has 175 hits (on the way to his personal best of 189 in 2017)but it has been reduced just two hits the advantage that separated him from Toronto’s Bo Bichette. “Pito” won the ‘H’ race two years ago when he hit 76 hits in the 60 scheduled challenges -later he would end up winning the MVP-, and now he threatens to repeat the feat.

A little behind Abreu, six undisputed from the top, marches the phenomenon Aaron Judge, who has carried the offensive weight of the Yankees with numerous leaders among which are those of average, RBIs and home runs and at the moment he has the Triple Crown in his possession.

As for the averageJudge is hitting .316 and will have to fight hard with a platoon that includes “Pito” Abreu himself (.308).

Meanwhile, Arozarena is at the head of the scammers with 32 hits, with minimal difference over two elements from Baltimore, Jorge Mateo and Cedric Mullins. Fifty years after Bert Campaneris earned his last season’s top stealer plaquea baseball player born in the Greater Antilles could become a creditor of said award.

In addition, the gardener from Pinar del Río has not thrown in the towel in the statistics of two-base connectionswhere he accumulates 39 and can still deal with Bichette himself and José Ramírez (Cleveland), tied at 42.

That said, it should be noted that Yordan Álvarez from Las Tunas (Astros) and Yandy Díaz from Villa Clara (Rays) have chances in the OBP department, which Judge leads with .422. Here, Álvarez is second in the final with .402 and Díaz is third with .399.
