Starlin Castro has been on fire

Starlin Castro has been ridiculously hot the last couple weeks. I was certain it was the best he’s played at the big league level. He’s hit for some good power over the last 15 games. He has 8 doubles and a home run. He’s slugging over .600. His ISO is nearly .200. He’s also taken 6 walks (all unintentional) so two of the three things that Castro has to do to become the star so many think he can become have been done the last couple weeks.

I was pretty sure it had to be the best 15 game stretch in his short career, but wanted to check. It worked out kind of nice since he’s played in 195 games now so we can break that down into 15-games quite easily. These are small samples of an already small sample size in his career so I’m not going to say anything else. I’m just going to publish the table below.

181 to 195 69 8.70% 0.429 0.478 0.603 0.469 0.931 10.35

The only other stretch he was anywhere near as good as this one was games 61 to 75.
