Valencia went 2-for-5 with a double and a three-run home run Sunday against the White Sox.

Valencia's game-tying long ball in the top of the fifth provided his first RBI since a July 6 three-run shot against the Athletics. He's just five short of last season's 51 RBI in 46 fewer games played, as moving from Oakland's subpar lineup to a more dangerous Seattle unit has paid dividends for Valencia's counting stats. The veteran slugger's .271/.331/.428 line is actually inferior to his 2016 output of .287/.346/.446, yet he's providing more fantasy value this year.
