Heredia laced an RBI double, walked twice and stole a base over three plate appearances in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday. The Rangers will be glad to be rid of Heredia, who went 4-for-6 with a pair of two-baggers, two RBI, two walks, Sunday's steal and two runs over the two weekend games of the series. The Cuban outfielder has hit safely in four straight and boosted his season average 13 points to .230 during September by going 8-for-19 thus far during the month.
Heredia went 3-for-5 with an RBI double and two runs in a win over the Rangers on Saturday. As mostly miserable as Heredia's slash line has been this season, he seems intent on finishing the campaign on a strong note. Saturday's multi-hit effort was his first since Aug. 1, and it brought his average over the last eight games to a blistering .389. Heredia could continue seeing regular playing time over the last week of the season now that the Mariners are officially eliminated from playoff contention.
Heredia went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a win over the Astros on Wednesday. Heredia launched a 337-foot shot to left to close out the scoring in the blowout win, his first homer since July 28. The Cuban outfielder has bounced back with a 4-for-13 tally in part-time duty during September after hitting just .147 in August. His defensive skills continue to afford him semi-regular playing time, but a pedestrian season at the plate has significantly neutralized his fantasy value.
Heredia went 1-for-2 with a walk in a win over the Yankees on Sunday. He also was caught stealing on his one attempt. Heredia had been back with the big-league club since Aug. 27, but he'd only appeared as a defensive replacement or in a pinch-hit capacity until Sunday. The 28-year-old drew the start in center field with Dee Gordon getting a day off, but his playing time figures to continue to be few and far between for what remains of the campaign.
Heredia was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Monday. With Marco Gonzales heading to the disabled list with a neck issue, Heredia will rejoin the Mariners after spending just eight days in the minors. Prior to being sent to Triple-A, Heredia compiled a meager .217/.295/.308 slash line across 105 games with the Mariners. He should serve as an extra outfielder.
