Colorado Rockies: The opposing batters who hurt them the most in 2020
By Kevin Henry
So remember that eye-popping wRC+ that Alex Dickerson posted last season (318)? Well, his teammate, Brandon Belt, wasn’t too far behind.
Belt posted a 246 wRC+ as well as a .433/.514/.800 slash line with a 1.314 OPS. His hard-hit percentage of 65.2 was the highest of any batter that qualified for this article.
Another Giant, Joey Bart, came in second overall in that category at 64.7 percent. The rookie catcher would hit .348 with a 153 wRC+.
Let’s move down the coast and check in on a player who seems to fall on this list every year, and that’s San Diego’s Wil Myers. The 29-year-old Myers seems to have made a career on breaking Colorado’s collective heart and this year was no exception.
In 41 plate appearances, Myers hit an even .400 against the Rockies and put up a slash line of .400/.415/.825 and an OPS of 1.240. His 13 RBI against Colorado were the most of any player against the Rockies.
Death, taxes, and Wil Myers hurting the Rockies. These things you can always count on.
