The Indians DH/1B/OF has been scorching of late in going 9-for-25 with 8 R and 10 RBI over the past 7 games. 5 of his 9 HR on the season have come in the past week (including a pair of 2-run shots off AL Cy Young favorite Justin Verlander
). Now that
is a hot streak.
The Royals rookie has continued his hot hitting of late (he made this list last week as well). He has kept up the hot hitting by going 11-for-30 (.367 BA) with 7 R, 2 HR, 8 RBI and 2 SB to boot. Is a late run at the AL Rookie of the Year a possibility here?
The embattled Mets outfielder has been on a nice little offensive run of late in going 13-for-27 (.481) with 4 R, 2 HR, 10 RBI and 1 SB over his past 7 GP. By Bays’ recent standards, this is amazing.
A recent 3-for-31 drought (.097 BA) with 2 R and no counting stats may have cost the Red Sox second baseman some votes in a tight AL MVP race.
With only 2 hits in his past 25 AB, Johnson is not living up to his reputation as a player who delivers in September. He will most likely be playing elsewhere in 2012.
An up-and-down season for Lind is playing out on a down note for the Jays’ first baseman. With only 3 hits in 15 AB over the past 7 days, Lind has not impressed at the plate with 0 R, 0 HR and 0 RBI.
