Amed Rosario settles in at second spot in Cleveland Indians batting order

After an awful March and April at the plate, Amed Rosario turned a corner in the month of May and that carried into June as he posted one of the best months at the plate on the Cleveland Indians roster. While it wasn’t the .300+ batting average of May, Rosario came close and proved that it wasn’t a fluke, but a full turn around.

Since moving up to the two-spot in the batting order, Rosario has been able to slash .307/.354/.420 with four doubles, two triples, three home runs and 16 RBI. He’s also been able to draw nine walks and swipe five bases to close out his stat line.

The month of May saw Rosario nearly double his batting average from .179 in March and April to .307 in May. As for June, his average came down a few points, but not by much, settling at .299. As for his spot on the team, Rosario posted one of the best months on the Cleveland Indians in June.

During June, Rosario led the Tribe in hits with 29 as well as having the second best average behind only Harold Ramirez who had 25 fewer at-bats. His three stolen bases also tied Eddie Rosario for the team lead over the month.

To top it all off, Rosarios has four triples this season, which is tied for the lead in the American League and just one off of the MLB-high which is a three-way tie among National League players at five.
