The model knows Arizona center fielder Daulton Varsho has a nice-looking swing with the ability to produce runs. Varsho has home run power but also can hit for average. The 25-year-old is leading the team in batting average (.252), on-base percentage (.324), and hits (33). On May 18, Varsho went 2-for-5 with two singles and two runs scored.

The 27-year-old leads the team in batting average (.272) with three home runs and 17 RBIs. On May 18, he was 3-for-3 with a double and one run driven in.
