Both Abreu and Frazier’s home run totals were even (10 for Abreu, 9 for Frazier) in June, not to mention their HRD and DPA were virtually even as well. Abreu checked in with a HRD of 12.5991, and Frazier scored a HRD value of 11.8724. Both DPA’s were nearly identical as well, and while Frazier scored a bit better (1.3192 to Abreu’s 1.2599) both were above one.

As I have mentioned before, both have the ability to beat an opponent more than once. In the month of June, Abreu and Frazier dominated the Tigers as they hit a combined six home runs (Frazier had four, including a walk-off grand slam). Abreu also hit two home runs versus the Dodgers, Orioles, and Blue Jays.

The month of July has a bit of a twist, as only one player left the yard in the first half. Since Frazier didn’t go deep before the break in July, this month will feature Abreu only.
