How MLB’s Coldest Hitter Got Hot

In the span of a few months, Calhoun went from being colder than he’d ever been to about as hot as he’d ever been. “It’s definitely pretty extreme,” Calhoun said. “I don’t know if I’ve ever really experienced anything like it.” Almost no hitter ever has. Baseball Prospectus provided The Ringer with RPA+ data for all hitters in all calendar months going back to 1950 in which they recorded at least 80 plate appearances. Only one hitter — the Dodgers’ Ron Fairly in 1966 — has ever experienced a more drastic difference between his best and worst offensive months in a single season than Calhoun has in 2018.
