In the most recent days of the Japanese and Korean Leagues in Asian baseball, José Miguel Fernández and Ariel José Martínez Camacho excelled with the lumber. Meanwhile, from the mound, Liván Moinelo consolidated another good work and continues to have excellent numbers in the season.
Ariel José Martínez Camacho, from Matanzas, had a productive weekend in NPB. He batted 6-2 with a run scored and a base on balls, he also added two tow balls, and now has 13 in this contest. Something notable in the performance of the Matanzas native is that the Chunichi franchise was right to move him from catcher to outfielder and that has given him more chances to play.
Ariel José Martínez Camacho is also responding, because in 50 games he has played this season, he has 47 hits and scored 22 runs. He leaves a batting average of .303 and a slugging of (.490), which are, to this point, the highest for him in a campaign since he debuted in 2020. If we go by wRC+ he has been 53 points better than the average hitter (wRC+ 153).
While Jose Miguel Fernandez continues to perform at an astounding level in the Korean League and it doesn`t stop his productivity. This weekend in KBO he connected four hits in eight at-bats.
The "King of the hit" scored one run and drove in five, in addition, he got three bases on balls. His batting average is .309 and is the 13th highest in the league. Wrc+ indicates that his offensive performance is 28 points better than the average hitter in KBO.
