I know he's injured right now. I don't know why but I feel like he'd be a much better player who could hit .300-.320 if he was on another team. He has a decent amount of homers for the first half of the season (hasn't played 2nd half) but I feel like if he got traded to a better team and stayed healthy next year he could hit 45 home runs and hit .305. Maybe it's because he's young right now though? Your thoughts?
Stanton is already a great player. If you say he will be a “much better player” then that's asking for quite a lot. But, I think if he had a better hitter batting behind him to serve protection for him, he would put up a little bit better stats.I think his average might push .300 but I don't think it would be .320. His home runs won't increase. He already has legit power to all fields.Stanton would have a lot more rbi though. For example, if Stanton was on the Yankees, he would have someone like Tex, A-Rod, or Cano batting behind him. Those hitters serve as better protection than LoMo or whoever bats behind him.That will cause his average to rise a bit, but not much.He would drive in more runs. But, I don't think his home run totals would change.So, overall, having a better player behind Stanton could help him, but it wouldn't affect him by much.
