Donovan Solano having a break-out season

Giants infielder Donovan Solano has had a breakout season. Although we are only 12 games in, (I am writing this while the Giants are currently playing their 12th game of the season on the road against the Rockies, currently Bottom of the first, 1-0 Rockies lead) Solano leads the league in RBIs (13), hits (16), and batting average (.457) in 35 at bats. Baseball Reference Stats:

Solano is 32 years old. He is 5 feet, 8 inches and is 210 pounds. He is right handed. He made his debut on May 21, 2012 for the Miami Marlins in a game against the Colorado Rockies. He was 24 years old. He played for the Marlins from 2012 to 2015. He was picked up by the Yankees and played for them in 2016. The Giants called him up in 2019 and he has done fantastic ever since. He finished the 2019 season with a .330 batting average, 71 hits, 13 doubles, 1 triple, 4 homers, and 23 RBIs.

You can tell that Solano has good power and great contact. He has only played over 100 games in 2 seasons (2013-2014) and has played over half of the season (81 games) 2 times (2012 and 2019). He only has 14 career homers. Last year was his season high. He has a lot of hits and RBIs. He has 135 career RBIs and 361 carrer hits. He has a lot of multiple base hits(64). I think that Solano has 6-8 years of his career left. He could definitely build up a hall of fame worthy career. If he plays over 100 games each season, he could get around 80-110 RBIs and 15-17 homers. I estemate that he will have over 100 homers by the end of his career. I also estemate he will have over 1,000 RBIs by the end of his career.

I have a lot of hope for Solano.

By the Way: Giants fell to the Rockies 5-2
