During the offseason, I said that I believe that Brian Dozier will be an All-Star for the Minnesota Twins in the upcoming season. Not to pat myself on the back, but thus far in spring it looks like Dozier wants to prove me right.
Dozier has played in six games this spring and is hitting over .500. Yes, as in more than half the time that Dozier steps up to the plate, he’s been getting on base. His batting average is currently at .556.
Sure he hasn’t had many at-bats, so the average easily fluctuates, but still that’s a nasty good average. Doziers had 18 at-bats and has a total of 10 hits. The best part about the hits is that half of them are for extra-bases.
Dozier has three doubles this spring along with two home runs.
There’s been rumblings that the Twins are working with Dozier on a contract extension and it looks like the Twins are striking at just the right time. Dozier is still on the rise with the best games of his career still to come and should be a major part of the Twins’ future.
There’s position battles and young players to look at during the spring, but it is always good to see old faces that keep on improving their game. I’m excited for the regular season to be here for many reasons, but Brian Dozier is one of those main reasons.
