Due to less games played, Frazier out homered Abreu nine to five. Considering that, Frazier’s HRD was valued at 9.1353 to Abreu’s 5.2389. When comparing both players DPA, they are virtually identical. Abreu’s DPA was a bit higher, coming in at 1.0478 to Frazier’s 1.0150. Over the first two months, there seems to be a trend developing.

Both Abreu and Frazier are homering multiple times versus an opponent per month. While Abreu hit five home runs, he only victimized three teams. The reasons for that is Abreu went deep twice off of both the Indians and Athletics. Frazier didn’t have one team in the month of May that he only took deep once. He homered against Atlanta three times, and Pittsburgh, Colorado, and Washington twice.

Both the White Sox and Reds were one game over .500 each in May (when Frazier and Abreu homered). The Sox were 3-2 and the Reds went 5-4 those games.

Let’s move to the month of June, where both Abreu and Frazier got hot.
