Alec Bohm is the MLB’s 5th hottest rookie
The MLB rookie tracker currently has Phillies 3rd baseman Alec Bohm as the 5th hottest rookie in Major League Baseball.
Bohm’s defense still has ways to go. He committed two errors in one inning against the Braves last weekend. At the plate however, Bohm has been stellar.
In 6 games last week, Bohm has batted .389/.542 /.611. Last week, Bohm hit a monster home run, his first of his career, to deep center field which highlighted a 3 for 3 night for the Phillies’ top prospect. He’s batting .344/.462/.531 with four RBIs and more walks (seven) than strikeouts (six) through his first 10 games in the Majors.

Well, because I hit it 450 feet to dead-center.” pic.twitter.com/8wCJKYbvs4
