Slater went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Dodgers. Slater took Clayton Kershaw deep to lead off the third inning to extend the Giants lead. The outfielder has three long balls in his last five games. He is slashing just .230/.324/.434 with 12 home runs, 17 RBI, 18 runs and seven steals through 139 plate appearances. Unfortunately, Slater has taken a step back from his .282 batting average in the shortened 2020 season.
Slater slugged a two-run home run in his only at-bat Wednesday against the Diamondbacks. Slater didn't start the contest but was called upon to pinch hit for Alex Dickerson with a runner on base and the Giants trailing by two runs in the eighth inning. The 28-year-old came through in a big way, smashing a two-run shot to left field to tie the game up. It was the second straight game with a homer and two RBI for Slater, who now has six long balls on the season. He is slashing .219/.315/.412 through 130 plate appearances.
Slater went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer, a walk and two runs scored in Sunday's 11-5 loss to the Giants. Slater finally got the Giants on the board in the sixth with a two-run long ball to left. He also scored a second time after walking in the eighth. The 28-year-old is slashing just .212/.310/.381 with five home runs, 14 RBI, 15 runs scored and seven stolen bases. He has typically been the team's leadoff man against left-handed pitching but regularly finds himself on the bench against right-handers since Mike Tauchman arrived. His struggles at the plate and constant platoon makes it difficult for Slater to be trusted in many lineups.
Slater went 1-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in Wednesday's 4-0 win over Cincinnati. Slater got aboard in a variety of ways Wednesday -- in addition to a seventh-inning single, he also reached on an error and a fielder's choice. The speedy outfielder is up to seven steals in 38 games. He's added four home runs, 12 RBI, 13 runs scored and a .217/.314/.368 slash line in a part-time role. He should function as San Francisco's fourth outfielder now that Mike Yastrzemski (side) and Alex Dickerson (shoulder) are back in action.
Slater went 2-for-2 with a two-run home run and an RBI single in Saturday's 7-1 win over San Diego. Slater pinch hit for Mike Tauchman in the sixth inning and slapped an RBI single to give the Giants a 5-1 lead. Slater added an exclamation point with a two-run blast in the eighth. The 28-year-old outfielder is up to four home runs, six stolen bases, 11 RBI and 11 runs scored across 99 plate appearances. A crowded San Francisco outfield could limit his playing time, but he provides some pop and speed when he's in the lineup.
