A Good Month for James Loney 

Over the last month of baseball, Dodgers first baseman James Loney leads the majors with a .457 weighted on-base average.  In 102 plate appearances, Loney has amassed 34 hits, 4 home runs, and 12 walks for a line of .386/.460/.636.

The one area Loney has been cold is basically right over the heart of the plate and slightly in.  Looking at the slugging heat map for the rest of the league's lefty hitters over the last month, you can see that most like the ball in that area.

Loney has feasted on pitches up in the zone, hitting .421 with a .789 SLG in 57 PA over the last month.  He's hitting balls down in the zone equally well.  In 36 PA decided on a low pitch, Loney has collected 15 hits, including 5 doubles and 1 HR.
