Rendon went 2-for-3 with a home run, a walk and four RBI on Saturday in an 8-7 win against Arizona. Rendon put the Angels on the board in the fourth inning, slugging a solo homer to left field. He plated another two runs with a double in the following frame and tied the game with a sacrifice fly in the ninth. The third baseman snapped a 27-game, 102-at-bat stretch without a home run, the second-longest power drought of his career. He is slashing .241/.317/.370 with four homers and 30 RBI on the season.
Rendon went 2-for-5 with a double, a RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 9-5 loss to the Mariners. Rendon was quiet in his first three at-bats before scoring in the eighth inning and knocking in Justin Upton in the ninth frame on a double. The third baseman is slashing just .236/.311/.347 with three home runs, 22 RBI and 15 runs in 161 plate appearances in his age-31 season. He has picked up the slack recently with three multi-hit games in his last five contests.
Rendon went 3-for-5 with a double and five RBI in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the Giants. Rendon remains without a home run in his 19 games since returning from the injured list May 14, but the veteran third baseman at least stepped up as a run producer in the Angels' resounding win. The five RBI exceeded his combined total (three) from the aforementioned 19-game period, which illustrates Rendon's prolonged slump at plate of late, as well as the Angels' collective struggles as an offense. The Halos will likely remain one of baseball's weaker lineups so long as Mike Trout (calf) is on the shelf, but Rendon still looks like a decent buy-low candidate, given that he's currently sitting on a career-low .257 BABIP, along with the fact that his strikeout rate (16.8 percent) isn't up dramatically from past seasons.
Rendon went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Monday's 7-4 win over Cleveland. Rendon entered Monday's game in a 1-for-11 skid since he was activated off the injured list but knocked three singles against Cleveland. He raised his season slash line to .274/.349/.425 with 12 RBI through 83 plate appearances. It was his first multi-hit game since May 1.
Rendon (knee) was activated off the injured list Friday and will be in the lineup against the Red Sox, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. Rendon's bruised left knee will wind up sidelining him for the minimum 10 days. He'd previously spent time on the injured list with a groin injury. Those absences have limited him to just 15 games this season, in which he's hit .276/.348/.466.
