Are you joining the fight for MVP? Juan Soto impresses with numbers in MLB second half

The capabilities that Juan Soto has as a player of MLB both defensively and offensively, but after a weak start in the Season 2021 has surprised with numbers that he has put in the second half in his performances with Washington Nationals and that could lead him to join the fight for the award for ‘Most Valuable Player MVP’ of the National League.

Juan Soto has shone in the recent days of the 2021 MLB Season and his offense has led him to put out remarkable numbers, such as a .315 batting average, and 25 connected home runs and 85 RBIs for Washington Nationals.

The Dominican entered the game on September 10 batting .358 / .527 / .653 since the All-Star break, an offensive line that at that time put him in just the fourth player in the century to achieve those numbers, something that figures like Barry Bonds had only done.

The remarkable second half of the Nats outfielder could see him enter the race for the MVP award of the National League, which has as main candidates Fernando Tatis Jr. and Bryce Harper.

Juan Soto is already in his fourth MLB season as a professional and an important part of the Washington Nationals and has increasingly established himself as a defensive and offensive reference, as well as one of the faces of the new generation of players.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
