As the 2014 season comes down to the last month, the following players have the best chance to end the season will the highest batting averages in MLB.
Miguel Cabrera currently is 7th on the MLB batting average list, but he has room to move into the top 5. With a .309 average, I see
Cabrera making a late surge as the Detroit Tigers need him to advance them into the playoffs.
Michael Brantley carries a .319 batting average into the last month of the season. He also is fifth on the hits list this season with 148. Brantley should continue to hit just as well in September as he had all season this far.
Victor Martinez is currently third with a .326 batting average and very well could be higher on the list. He has less at-bats than anyone in the top-five giving him more room to advance or decline on this list. I see him evening out to keep him at the No. 3 spot.
With a .329 batting average, Robinson Cano has been dominant as of late. I predict Cano to continue to hit well enough to put his team into the playoffs as it will come down to the final game of the season.
Jose Altuve has a .339 batting average and has the most hits in MLB this season with 173. Being one of the most consistent hitters all season, Altuve could only be passed by Cano, but the odds are not in Cano's favor.
