Morales went 2-for-2 with two walks and an RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Athletics. The Blue Jays dropped this one by a 6-2 margin, but it was a productive day for Morales, who reached base in all four plate appearances. July was by far the best month of the season to date for the 35-year-old, as he hit .338 to go along with a 1.032 OPS. On the year he's now slashing .259/.341/.442 with 12 homers and 36 RBI.
Morales went 3-for-5 with a run and a pair of RBI Wednesday against the Blue Jays. Morales made a pair of baserunning blunders, running into a pair of lineout double plays, though he had a solid game from a fantasy perspective. He opened the scoring with an RBI double in the first inning and added a sacrifice fly in the fifth. The 35-year-old is hitting a solid but unspectacular .257/.332/.436, with 11 homers in 81 games.
