Mayfield went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's 10-5 loss to the Astros. Mayfield went deep off Jose Urquidy in the second inning to put the Angels on the board. In addition, he walked in the sixth frame. It is just the second time he got on base twice in his last nine games. The 30-year-old is slashing .211/.277/.432 with 10 long balls, 26 RBI and 25 runs scored in 240 plate appearances this season.
Mayfield will start at third base and bat eighth Sunday against the Athletics. Mayfield will fill a bottom-three spot in the lineup for the third straight contest, even though he's in the midst of a relative heater at the dish. He's recorded a double in each of his last three starts, driving in four runs and scoring twice over that stretch. Mayfield looks set to fill an everyday role at third base for the remainder of the season.
Mayfield went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Monday's 8-7 win over the Yankees. Mayfield flipped a 2-1 deficit into a 5-2 lead with one swing of the bat after taking Corey Kluber yard in the fourth inning for a grand slam. Mayfield has nine homers in 43 games since being recalled by the Angels on July 6 but is slashing just .227/.281/.496 with 14 extra-base hits, 21 RBI, 16 runs scored, a steal and 7:31 BB:K. The 30-year-old likely had the biggest hit of his career Monday but has struggled to find success at the plate overall with limited action in the league since 2019.
Mayfield went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional run as the Angels defeated the Padres, 10-2, on Saturday. Mayfield went yard in the third inning to give the Angels an early 3-0 lead and singled and scored in the sixth. The outing represented the 30-year-old's first home run and multi-hit game since Aug. 6, and the infielder is now slashing .211/.259/.408 on the season.
Mayfield isn't in the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres. Mayfield has gone hitless with two strikeouts in his last eight at-bats, and he'll retreat to the bench for the third time in the last four games. Phil Gosselin will start at the hot corner and bat third.
