27-year old righty swinging 2B/LF Howie Kendrick is finally turning into the player the Angels have expected him to. He has played in 42 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 52 for 168 (.310 avg, .876 OPS) with 29 runs scored, 6 homers, 17 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. His production numbers are way up this year, as is his batting average as it’s all coming together for Kendrick this year. If Kendrick keeps hitting like he is right now, he could set new career highs in runs scored (67), homers (10), RBIs (75) and stolen bases (14). The Angels hope that Kendrick can stay healthy (it has been an issue in his career so far), because he’s one of the best all-around hitters on the team.
