SS - Seattle Mariners
J.P. Crawford delivered a go-ahead solo home run in the ninth inning to help the Mariners defeat the Mets 8-7.
To go along with his contact and defense ability, Crawford has shown more power as well this year with 14 home runs on the season. He continues to deliver strong at-bats at the top of the Mariners lineup.
J.P. Crawford provided a bright spot for the Mariners in Friday's loss to the Mets, launching a solo home run in the contest.
Although his overall season numbers haven't been overly impressive, with a .268 batting average and 45 RBI in 117 games, Crawford's power stroke has shown some signs of life with 13 home runs to date. While his contributions in other categories have been relatively modest, this recent display of power could be a positive sign for fantasy managers looking for some pop from their shortstop position.
J.P. Crawford collected two hits and scored three times on Saturday against the Royals.
After hitting a leadoff blast Friday night, Crawford picked up another pair of hits Saturday afternoon in the Mariners 15-2 win. He is now slashing .268/.385/.417 at the top of the Mariners lineup.
The Mariners reinstated SS J.P. Crawford from the 7-day concussion IL.
Crawford collided with Eugenio Suarez two weeks ago and was removed after showing symptoms of a concussion. The 28-year-old will look to continue his solid season, slashing .266/.379/.411 with 10 home runs, and 38 RBI in 107 games.
Mariners manager Scott Servais said J.P. Crawford will undergo tests for a concussion.
Crawford collided into Eugenio Suarez on a ground ball in Wednesday night's game. He remained in the game for a few innings before he was removed for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning after saying he wasn't feeling good. The Mariners should provide an update on Crawford on Thursday. If he is forced to miss any time, Dylan Moore would likely start at shortstop in his absence.
