Healy went 1-for-3 with a walk, two RBI and a run in Friday's win over the Angels. It was a good performance for Healy, who brought his RBI count up to 73 on the evening to go with 24 homers. While he hasn't had a multi-hit game since Sept. 1, he's had at least one hit in three of the past five games.
Healy went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in a win over the Yankees on Sunday. Healy erased an early 1-0 deficit with his first-inning single, which generated his 70th RBI of the season. The 26-year-old has now driven in a run in five of the six September games in which he's seen action, although he's yet to notch an extra-base hit over that span. While his bat has cooled off since a solid August in which he hit .289, Healy remains just one home run and eight RBI away from equaling the career-best 24 round trippers and 78 runs he drove in last season.
Healy went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and a run in a win over the Athletics on Saturday. He's 6-for-13 with a home run, four RBI and three runs over his last three games. Healy badly needed a hot streak, considering he'd slashed a pedestrian .222/.263/.333 over the 95 plate appearances encompassing his previous 25 games. Robinson Cano is slated to continue bumping Healy out of the lineup occasionally in September when he shifts over to first base, but the latter's potent pop (13 doubles, 24 home runs) helps ensure what should still represent a healthy dose of playing time.
Healy went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a run in a win over the Athletics on Thursday. Healy's first-inning single opened the scoring on the night, and he ultimately generated his eighth multi-hit effort of August. The 26-year-old has bounced back nicely during the current month after badly scuffling in July (.198 average), compiling six extra-base hits (four doubles, two home runs) and nine RBI. However, he's beginning to log off days more frequently as the month winds down (four over the last 14 games), as Robinson Cano is occasionally seeing time at first base since his return from suspension.
Healy is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. With Robinson Cano serving in an everyday utility role around the infield since returning from a suspension, Healy has received more days off than usual of late, in spite of his hot bat. He'll be withheld from the starting nine for the fourth time in 11 games Sunday.
