Hot Bats With RISP

Yasiel Puig and Albert Pujols lead the MLB in plate appearances with runners in scoring position, 61 and 60 respectively.  Puig is hitting .408 to Pujols' .167.  28 of Puig's 31 RBI have come with runners in scoring position compared to 13 of Pujols' 26.  Driving home runs with runners on 2nd and/or 3rd is critical to winning baseball games as well as fantasy baseball.  Kurt Suzuki has just 12 hits with RISP, yet picked up 24 RBI on 8 singles and 4 doubles!  Prince Fielder is the most feared hitter when teammates are in scoring position, and it has lead to a league high 11 intentional base on balls.
