Juan Soto enjoying a month of September like few ever have

By , Audacy Sports

There's no guarantee that Juan Soto will be able to keep up his insane hot streak that we're currently watching. After all, very few batters are capable of batting .523 for a prolonged stretch of time, but that's what Soto has done in his last dozen games. Even fewer batters can hit .800 for even a brief stretch, and that's what Soto has done in his last three.

But Juan Soto isn't like most other batters, seeing as he is only 22 years old and has already logged some of the best offensive seasons we've seen of this millennium, and his entire month of September has been one ridiculous, torrid stretch of pure and utter domination.

On Thursday night, Soto went 3-3 with two home runs and a walk. On Wednesday night, Soto went 3-3 with one home run and two walks. Seven times this month, he's had multi-walk games. 11 times this month, he's had multi-hit games. He's slashing an otherworldly .473/.608/.838 in 22 games this September. He's added 26 walks to his total, giving him a league-high 131 on the season and contributing to his ridiculous league-high .470 OBP, which is actually down from his league-high .490 figure in the shortened 2020 season.
