He is currently slashing .271 / .300 / .391 with five home runs and seven stolen bases through 49 games. His next seven games are all on the road, and many of them are against starting pitchers who are tough on hitters such as Clayton Kershaw, Jeff Samardzija, Robbie Ray, and Zack Greinke.

Ian Desmond is heating up at the plate

Ian Desmond is batting .333 with two home runs, 10 RBIs, and five stolen bases over the last two weeks. He is now slashing .284 / .316 / .415 through 45 games.

Fantasy Impact

The last two weeks have been promising for Desmond owners after he missed the beginning of the season recovering from a broken hand and then got off to a slow start. The average, power, and speed numbers are all coming around in what is hopefully a sign he has turned things around for good.
