A look at Heyward's awesomeness

Entering today’s game the J-Hey Kid’s numbers were as shown below. As a whole the .880+ OPS for a rookie in his 20 year old season is absolutely fantastic, especially considering that his numbers didn’t fall off when the league adjusted to him, in fact it was the opposite, he made the adjustments. However, the point I would like to make is to show what kind of player Heyward has been when healthy; he spent most of the month of June battling a thumb injury. I have the splits from June listed below as well.

While healthy, Jason has reached base at .430 clip and is slugging .537, which would give him an OPS of .967. The .400 OBP number is staggering, as many have mentioned before, there have only been 5 players prior to Heyward to ever have done that during their 20 year old season; 4 of them are hall of famers and the other is Alex Rodriguez. We have a very special player folks, and all signs point to him spending many seasons in the thick of the MVP race.
