Heyward, who got off to an incredibly unlucky start before needing an appendectomy, finally saw some luck go his way in June as his BABIP began returning to normal. He went on to hit .312/.370/.495 with a team-high 1.2 WAR, ranking as one of the better players in the National League during that span.
It was only a matter of time before J-Hey started hitting again. And despite what the hundreds of hitting coaches on Twitter and the blogosphere say, the fact is that his swing is fine and his critics are simply looking at things to nitpick for one unjustified reason or another. Hey, at least you weren't the one to compare him to Jeff Francoeur.
B.J. Upton dropped his strikeout rate to 24.3% in June, which is right on par with his career average. He also walked 16.5% of the time. This begs the question as to why he still isn't leading off, but that's an argument for a different time.
Upton batted .238/.359/.452 the past month, posting a 0.8 WAR in that time. It seems B.J. is still working out some kinks in his swing, but I have very little doubt Braves fans would happily accept a .811 OPS the rest of the way from the center fielder.
Uggla really turned it on late in June to post a line of .250/.394/.452. Outside of his crazy run in July and August of 2011, that's probably the best month he's had since coming to Atlanta. He continued to strike out a ton, but as long as Dan continues to walk (19.2% in June) and hit for power (.202 ISO) he will be more than serviceable at the plate.
One other stat I found to be pretty cool: Evan Gattis had two hits in June before landing on the disabled list. They were both home runs.
