Coming into Tuesday’s game (all stats in this article are as of then), he’s been a lifetime .288 hitter during his first four seasons in this league, all with Anaheim.
In 2019, he scored a solid 83 runs, and in 2020, he batted an impressive .319. He’s going to be at least serviceable at the plate when he’s penciled into the lineup. He’s been much more than serviceable, however, as of late.
David Fletcher has been outstanding offensively for the LA Angels in his past 21 games.
In David Fletcher’s past 21 games, he’s hit .338 for the LA Angels, and gotten on-base 39% of the time.
That’s incredible. He’s only driven in seven runs, but it’s hard to be mad at that when considering that he’s scored 12.
He’s hardly striking out during this tear as well, sporting a K% of just 8.8. He has an 0.6 offensive fWAR, which is fourth on the team in that span.
In those 21 games, his BB/K ratio is the best on the team with an 0.86 BB/K ratio.
In his last 21 games, the Angels are a very nice 14-7. They’ve been doing all they can to close the gap as much as possible before Mike Trout gets back into the lineup.
Trout could be back as early as June 29th and as late as July 13th. I’m not sure Fletcher will have cooled off by then.
After a great 2020 campaign, Fletcher is still hitting well, and getting his base knocks for the Angels when they need them.
