Semien went 3-for-3 with two runs scored and a triple Monday against the Rockies. Semien singled in the second and fourth innings and finished off his day with a triple to left field in the sixth. He's been impressive thus far in spring training, going 11-for-32 with a home run, three RBI, two stolen bases and six runs scored.
Semien went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in a 5-1 Cactus League win over the Giants on Thursday. The veteran shortstop was just 4-for-18 this spring entering Thursday's contest, but he broke out with an encouraging performance. Semien is playing 2019 on a one-year, $5.9 million deal and will be looking to prove himself worthy of a lucrative multi-year contract. The 28-year-old bounced back from an injury-marred 2017 last season to play in 159 games and log a career-high 703 plate appearances, delivering the second-highest RBI total (70) of his career while setting new high-water marks in doubles (35), runs (89) and steals (14).
Semien went 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs in Wednesday's 9-3 win over the Mariners. Semien's 15th home run of the season was one of four Oakland long balls on the night in the series finale. The shortstop has only gotten base at a .258 clip over the Athletics' seven games, but he's made a big fantasy impact over that stretch with three home runs and 12 RBI.
Semien went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Saturday against the Twins. Semien launched his 13th homer of the season off Chase De Jong in the fifth inning, only his second home run since Aug. 28. His .259/.323/.386 slash line is not particularly strong, though he has chipped in 14 stolen bases and 86 runs across 607 at-bats.
Semien went 3-for-5 with a double, five RBI and a run scored Thursday against the Angels. Semien doubled with the bases loaded in the sixth inning, the hit that accounted for most of his production on the day. It was a slump-busting performance for him, as he had gone 0-for-9 across his last three games and hadn't driven in a run since September 9. Though he's never followed up his 27-home run season in 2016, Semien has scored plenty of runs and produces enough homers and stolen bases to be a solid option in deeper formats.
