Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Remains hot
Ahmed went 3-for-4 with a home run, a triple and three RBI in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Rockies.
Ahmed is sizzling at the plate, cranking out a homer for a third consecutive game while going 6-for-12 with nine RBI during that stretch. He's actually been hot for a longer period, as he's slashing .304/.388/.548 with seven home runs, 29 RBI and 22 runs scored over the 34 games he's played since July 2. Once considered employable for his glove solely, the shortstop's bat has caught up in 2019. Plate discipline appears to be the key. Two seasons ago, Ahmed swung at 39.6 percent of the pitches outside the zone, lowered that figure 31.5 percent last season and has further whittled it down to 27.1 percent during the current campaign.
