Cedric Mullins II
CF - BAL
Cedric Mullins went 1-4 with one strikeout, one run scored, and one RBI.
The home run was his sixth of the season and his only hard-hit ball in the game. Mullins should be rostered in all formats.
Cedric Mullins went 1-4 with one single, one run scored, one strikeout, and one walk.
Mullins had two hard-hit balls in the contest. The 26-year-old is enjoying a breakout year, and there's no reason to think he'll turn back into a pumpkin. Mullins has exhibited fine plate discipline, and his BABIP is inching toward career norms while his batting average remains above .300. He's settled in as a fine fantasy outfielder and leadoff hitter for the Orioles.
Cedric Mullins went 0-4 with a walk.
Mullins has been sensational to start the season. He's slashing .322/.382/.534 with five home runs and three stolen bases. The 26-year-old has cut down on his strikeout rate and increased his walk rate year over year. His breakout looks legit. As his BABIP continues to sink towards normal levels, it gets harder to credit Mullins' fast start to luck.
Cedric Mullins uncorked a two-run home run as part of the Orioles five-run eighth inning. He finished the game 3-5 with one double, one single, one home run, two RBIs, and one run scored.
Mullins BABIP is slowly falling into a sustainable range, and his surface stats remain excellent. The 26-year-old outfielder is breaking out for real and has the speed to contribute in all five categories.
Cedric Mullins went 1-4 with one home run, two RBIs, one run scored, and two strikeouts.
Mullins still has a gaudy .400 BABIP, which will likely continue to drop. The question is, how far? His 2020 BABIP was .350, so he may be the kind of hitter who can sustain an above-average BABIP. Managers can hold Mullins. He's been one of the best hitters in the game early.
