San Diego Padres hitters who carried the team in April: Jurickson Profar
Jurickson Profar hit more home runs in April than he did all season last year.
In that metric alone, he outperformed expectations last month.
In fact, those home runs comprised 38% percent of his hits and were the most homers by anyone in the Padres lineup.
Over 21 games, he hit .186/.318/.457 with a .775 OPS. He doubled four times, scored 12 runs, and drove in 15. He walked (13) almost as much as he struck out (16), too.
