Analyzing the Home Run Leaders

MLB Players with 20+ Home Runs (through July 2nd)
Now just past the half-way point of the 2013 MLB season a few standout performances are rounding into shape. No player has been more of a surprise than Orioles 1st baseman Chris Davis, who's batting .329 with 31 HR, 25 2B, and a 4.1 WAR. At just $3.3 million in 2013, Davis, age 27, is a huge value for Baltimore. Our premium team takes a quick look at those players who've reached the 20 HR mark thus far, their age, and their 2013 salary.

A few things to take away:

•  No team has two players with 20+ home runs.
•  Raul Ibanez is 8 years older than the next oldest player
• 7 of the 11 players are on American League teams.
