Mancini went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's victory over the Yankees. The rookie's RBI double in the third inning gave Mancini 24 doubles and 77 RBI on the year. Mancini is making the most of 2017's final month, collecting a hit in all but two of the O's games in September. He's currently riding a seven-game hitting streak, going 10-for-28 (.357) with five extra-base hits, three RBI and four runs during that stretch.
Mancini went 2-for-4 with a double, triple and one RBI in Wednesday's victory over Toronto. The Rookie of the Year candidate continued adding to his impressive resume by collecting his 23rd double, fourth triple and 75th RBI of the campaign. Passing Yankee Aaron Judge for the ROY Award remains a long shot, but Mancini ranks among the top three AL rookies for hits, doubles, triples, home runs, RBI, and batting average. Needless to say, the Orioles' first-year slugger looks nothing short of a budding superstar.
Mancini went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Wednesday's win over Seattle. The rookie is beginning to heat up again. Mancini has gone 15-for-35 at the dish with two homers, nine RBI and seven runs through his past nine games. He sports a rock-solid .294/.344/.518 for the campaign and has been locked into the five-hole of the Baltimore lineup for most of August. Mancini is probably still undervalued in plenty of fantasy circles, too.
Mancini went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored during Wednesday's win over Oakland. The rookie sported an underwhelming .230/.313/.432 slash line through his first 20 games of August, so squaring up Wednesday's three-run homer was encouraging. Mancini is still having a solid campaign with 22 round trippers, 65 RBI, 50 runs and a rock-solid .285/.339/.508 line. Even with a down month, those numbers still move the needle in the majority of fantasy settings.
Mancini has come a long way in understanding how to adjust to the way pitchers attack him, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Like most rookies, Mancini has been quite streaky in his first major-league campaign. The scouting report on him grows each day, giving opposing pitchers a better idea on how to get the slugger out. "It's kind of been a cycle," Mancini said. "I got challenged a lot at the beginning of the year with fastballs and everything. And then I think after I started having some success, they went to a lot of breaking stuff for a while. Then, I had a little tough go of it at first and kind of adjusted to that. Now, I think they're just kind of mixing everything." The 25-year-old's ability (and commitment) to make adjustments is a characteristic of hitters who last a long time in MLB.
