Stevenson went 2-for-4 with two doubles, three RBI, three runs scored and two walks in Sunday's 15-5 win over the Mets. Stevenson doubled in a pair of runs in the second inning and later drew an RBI walk in the third. The 26-year-old had only 47 plate appearances this season, but he made the most of them. Stevenson finished the 2020 campaign with a .366/.447/.732 slash line, 12 RBI and 10 extra-base hits.
Stevenson went 2-for-3 with two solo home runs during a 4-3 win over the Mets in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader. The 26-year-old came into Saturday with only one career home run in 136 big-league games, but Stevenson took Jacob deGrom to deep right-center field in the third inning for his first long ball of the season. He then got credit for an inside-the-park homer in the fifth when Dominic Smith crashed into the wall trying to corral his drive into the left-field corner. After a 1-for-4 showing in the nightcap, Stevenson has hit safely in 11 straight games, slashing a blistering .406/.457/.813 during that stretch with five doubles and a triple in addition to Saturday's home runs.
Stevenson is not in Thursday's lineup against the Mets. He is in the midst of an eight-game hitting streak and is hitting .375 with zero home runs and one steal in 24 at-bats over that stretch. Michael Taylor gets the start in left field and will hit seventh.
Stevenson will start in left field and will lead off Wednesday against the Phillies. Not only has Stevenson emerged as an everyday option in the corner outfield since Adam Eaton (finger) landed on the injured list last week, but the former has also emerged as the Nationals' primary table setter. Stevenson sits atop the lineup for the fourth game in a row, and he'll be looking to extend his hitting streak to eight games. He went 8-for-20 with three doubles, two walks, seven RBI, four runs and a stolen base over the previous seven contests.
Stevenson went 1-for-2 with two RBI and a walk in a 7-3 loss to the Marlins on Saturday. Stevenson will step into a sizable opportunity with Adam Eaton (finger) on the shelf for the rest of the season. However, hitting towards the bottom of the order on a team that ranks in the bottom third of the league in runs scored likely won't generate a ton of fantasy appeal.
