Jeimer Candelario went 2-for-3 with two walks, one RBI, and a run scored during Wednesday’s 5-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. He hit a solo home run to left in the first inning and it was his 11th of the year.
Candelario might have taken another step forward to playing like he did at the beginning of the season. He finds himself hitting .252/.358/.483 through the month of June. If someone dropped him it might be worth putting Candelario on the bench if he indeed is getting back to his earlier production.
