Dozier went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in an 11-0 victory against the White Sox on Tuesday. The 27-year-old came into the night hitting just .214 with no home runs in July, but he now has five hits, including a homer and a double, in the last two games. Perhaps he's finally breaking out of his slump. Dozier hit only .194 in June after missing the first 18 games of the month. For the season, he's batting .287 with 14 home runs, 50 RBI, 37 runs and one steal in 268 at-bats.
Dozier went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run in Monday's loss to the Blue Jays. Dozier reached base three times but it wasn't nearly enough as the Royals would lose 11-4. He's now hitting .231/.318/.462 in 10 games since returning from a side injury.
Dozier went 1-for-5 with a grand slam in Tuesday's 8-6 win over Cleveland. The 27-year-old played hero in this one, taking Cleveland closer Brand Hand deep in the ninth inning to flip the script on what had been a 6-3 deficit coming into the frame. Dozier's now gone yard twice in his last three games and is quickly returning to his pre-injury form, slashing .302/.387/.585 on the year with 13 homers and 42 RBI in 57 games.
Dozier went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double and three RBI in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Twins. After being reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Dozier started all three of the Royals' games against Minnesota, going 3-for-11. The slugger will be back in action Monday as the Royals' starting second baseman and cleanup hitter in the series opener with the Indians.
Dozier (side) was activated from the 10-day injured list on Friday. Dozier hasn't played in a big-league game since May 30. He initially appeared to be on track for a minimum-length stay on the injured list but wound up requiring a brief rehab stint, in which he went 5-for-14 over three games for Double-A Northwest Arkansas. He'll return to his everyday role at third base and will look to continue his surprising breakout season and build on his .314/.398/.589 slash line.
