Stock Report (3/25)



When Auburn can actually get all of their hitters back on the same page, then we can truly be a force to reckon with. By “on the same page” I mean everybody is hitting a high clip and steadily increasing our averages. Still, this is probably the hottest the team has been offensively with only 1 player in a slump. You want the best explanation for Auburn’s success against Arkansas? It’s Creede Simpson. Sure, Casey McElroy got most of the headlines, but Creede has been steadily increasing his offense and getting back on track. He’s hitting .500 over his past 3 games and is hitting almost double his normal average. Who else is Hot? Who’s Not? Let’s take a look:


Heating Up

BATTER AVG 3 GAME % CHANGE
Fradejas .319 .364 .045
McElroy .404 .500 .096
Simpson .257 .500 .243
Caldwell .246 .333 .087

Gamache didn’t make the cut here. He had a bit of a struggle over the weekend (.200 for the series) but he’s still hitting at a .338 clip and had a nice 2 for 4 night on Tuesday against JSU. Patterson is holding steading and after his monster Arkansas series (.429) his steadied himself at around .250


Cooling Off

BATTER AVG 3 GAME % CHANGE
Gilmer .354 .182 -.172

Wes is in a bit of a funk, but his overall average of .354 and the fact that he’s finishing up a long hitting streak will keep him in the lineup for the time being. Still, he needs a good bounce back this weekend.
