Mookie Betts made his first season in the National League making an impact for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He also joined many of his Los Angeles teammates in putting up big numbers against the Rockies.
No Dodger hit better against the Rockies in 2020 than Betts, who posted a .387/.441/.839 slash line and 236 wRC+ (fourth-highest of anyone against Colorado). His four homers tied for the second-most against the Rockies (along with teammate Corey Seager and Arizona’s Christian Walker) and his 12 runs scored were tied for the lead (along with Alex Dickerson).
Betts had 10 RBI against the Rockies but trailed Seager for the L.A. lead in that department as Seager posted 12 to go along with a .385/.419/.769 slash line.
Much like Joey Bart in San Francisco, Will Smith of the Dodgers was a young catcher who had a big year against Colorado. His 240 wRC+ was the third-highest against the Rockies, going 6-for-18 … and three of those six hits were homers.
Of course, we know just how bad the numbers were for Colorado pitching last season. That may play into some of these numbers. But still, as Wil Myers shows us, some players just have Colorado’s number, no matter the season.
