Crawford went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs scored in Tuesday's 10-0 win over the Twins.
Crawford wasted no time getting the offense started as he took J.A. Happ deep to right field to lead off the bottom of the first. He also knocked a pair of singles and came around to score again in the fourth. The 26-year-old has really picked things up in June, slashing .393/.455/.625 with two homers, eight RBI, 10 runs scored, a stolen base and an 8:12 BB:K over 14 games.
Crawford went 3-for-5 with an RBI in Sunday's win over Cleveland.
Crawford has hit safely in eight of the Mariners' last 10 games and has seven RBI, six runs scored and an 8:8 BB:K during that span, so the shortstop has been doing a good job at the top of the order. Crawford also has a decent .342 on-base percentage, a figure that would represent his best mark in that category since his rookie year in 2017.
Crawford went 3-for-4 with a walk in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.
Crawford made his presence felt at the top of the order once again and extended his streak of reaching safely multiple times to five straight contests. The shortstop has compiled one home run, five RBI, four runs scored, five doubles and a 4:2 BB:K over that span, and he's hitting .462 since the calendar flipped to June.
Crawford went 2-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 9-5 win over the Angels.
Crawford reached base safely three times capped off by two extra-base hits. He was a part of four of the Mariners nine runs. The 26-year-old is slashing just .263/.326/.376 with three home runs, 21 RBI and 26 runs in 227 plate appearances. He isn't much of a power threat, but his .263 average is his highest of his career.
Crawford went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional RBI in Friday's loss to the Angels.
Crawford collected two of the Mariners' six hits in the contest and knocked in both of the team's runs. He began the game with a 430-foot solo homer and notched another RBI with a sacrifice fly in the third. Crawford has collected at least one hit in six of his past seven games, hitting .321 with a pair of homers and four RBI over that span.
Crawford went 3-for-5 with an RBI ground-rule double and another two-bagger in a win over the Angels on Thursday.
Crawford operated out of the leadoff spot for the sixth time this season with plenty of success, posting his second multi-hit effort in the last three games. The veteran shortstop's .254/.313/.340 slash line has plenty of room for improvement; however, Crawford sports a modest 17.5 percent strikeout rate and impressive 22.4 percent line-drive rate as well, while his .315 and .324 averages with men on base and men in scoring position, respectively, have helped lead to 17 RBI despite his often unfavorable slotting in the order.
Crawford went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's 3-2 win over Texas.
Crawford led off the seventh with home run to right off Texas starter Mike Foltynewicz to break a 1-1 tie. This was Crawford's second home run in 52 games this year after hitting two in 53 last season, as he obviously isn't much of a power threat.
Crawford went 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the A's.
Crawford knocked an RBI single in the first, doubled and scored in the fourth, and singled again in the fifth for his second three-hit game of the campaign. The former top prospect is hitting a solid .261 but will need to show more power, as he has just 10 extra-base hits on the season, nine of them doubles.
Crawford is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.
Donovan Walton will pick up a start at shortstop in place of Crawford, who will take a seat for the first time all season. Despite starting in all 46 of the Mariners' games to date, Crawford has produced relatively modest counting stats (18 runs, 14 RBI, one home run, one stolen base), a byproduct of typically batting in the bottom half of one of the majors' weaker lineups.
Crawford went 1-for-3 with a two-run single and a walk in a win over Cleveland on Sunday.
The hot-hitting shortstop continued to demonstrate his season-long knack for timely hitting with his third-inning single, which drove in Mitch Haniger and Kyle Seager with the Mariners' second and third runs of the day. Crawford now has 14 RBI despite having hit out of the bottom third of the order in 32 of 41 games, with his .327 and .333 averages with men on base and men in scoring position, respectively, responsible for that figure.
Crawford went 2-for-5 with a run in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.
Operating out of the leadoff spot for the first time all season, Crawford continued to wield a hot bat following a brief slump. The shortstop had just slugged his first home run two games ago as part of a 3-for-3 night that kicked off his current three-game hitting streak, and Sunday's multi-hit effort was his fourth in the last nine games overall.
Crawford went 3-for-3 with a two-run homer and a second run scored in Friday's 5-4 win over Texas.
Crawford's fourth-inning shot knotted the game up at 4-4 and gave him his first long ball of the season. The 26-year-old has three multi-hit performances over his last three games to improve his season slash line to .267/.336/.343.
Crawford went 2-for-3 with an RBI double, a walk and a run in a loss to the Angels on Saturday.
Crawford continues to shrug off his typical slotting at the lowest rungs of the lineup to generate solid production, with Saturday's multi-hit effort pushing his season average and on-base percentage to a solid .264 and .330, respectively. Crawford has also managed a respectable eight RBI despite his unfavorable spot in the order by slashing .318/.348/.500 over 23 plate appearances with men in scoring position.
Crawford went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run in a win over the Angels on Friday.
Crawford found a way to make an impact out of the No. 8 spot in the order, extending his on-base streak to nine games. The 26-year-old has yet to leave the yard this season through 96 plate appearances, but he does have four doubles and sports a favorable 8.3 percent walk rate and 17.7 percent strikeout rate.
Crawford, who went 1-for-3 with an RBI single, a walk and a run in a loss to the Red Sox on Friday, sports a .297 average and .395 on-base percentage over the 43 plate appearances covering his last 13 games.
That said, the third component of Crawford's slash, his slugging percentage, sits at just .324 thanks to the shortstop logging all of one extra-base hit (a double) over 70 total plate appearances. The 26-year-old carries a 10-game on-base streak into Saturday's matinee matchup versus Boston.
Crawford went 3-for-6 with a run while starting both games of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Orioles.
The previously struggling shortstop continued his ascension at the plate with Tuesday's solid day. Crawford had gotten his average up over the Mendoza Line for the first time this season with his first multi-hit effort of the season Sunday, and although all three hits Tuesday were singles and he remains in search of his first extra-base hit of the campaign, his average is now up to a respectable .256.
Crawford went 2-for-4 in Sunday's win over the Twins.
The struggling shortstop's first multi-hit effort of the season pushed his average over the Mendoza Line for the first time as well. Crawford has actually reached safely in seven of his first nine games, but he's yet to notch an extra-base hit and has generated an anemic 14.3 percent hard-hit rate through 34 plate appearances.
Crawford, who went 1-for-4 in a loss to the Giants on Monday, is hitting .154 (2-for-13) over his first four games.
The 26-year-old also has a walk and a run, but overall, his start to the 2021 campaign largely mirrors his forgettable Cactus League slate. Crawford hit just .128 (5-for-39) with no extra-base hits and three RBI across 52 plate appearances this spring, and although there'd been talk of the shortstop still seeing some leadoff duty this season, he's operated out of the No. 9 hole in his first three games while Mitch Haniger has thrived at the top of the order.
Crawford will start at shortstop and bat ninth Thursday against the Giants.
Seattle is opposing the right-handed Kevin Gausman in the season opener, so the lefty-hitting Crawford looks like he'll be a mainstay at the bottom of the order to begin the campaign while Mitch Haniger serves as the full-time leadoff man. This arrangement is obviously an unfavorable development for Crawford's fantasy value -- and an unexpected one, considering that he'd hit atop the order in 48 of his 51 starts in 2020. Though he showed significant improvement with his contact rate last season, Crawford's .336 on-base percentage was still poor for a leadoff hitter, and he didn't make enough strides this spring to hold off a healthy Haniger for the job. He produced only five hits -- all singles -- in 39 at-bats during Cactus League play.
Crawford, who hit leadoff in 48 of 53 games last season, is likely to share the role more often this season with Mitch Haniger, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
"We'll continue to play with that. It won't be just locked in," manager Scott Servais said. "Last year, we had J.P. at the top, just because I thought we didn't have a ton of options. So, we'll continue to be flexible and move it around there." The 26-year-old has gotten off to a modest start in Cactus League play -- he's hitting just .200 (2-for-10) with five walks, a stolen base and a run across his first six games -- but he reported to spring camp with about 10 pounds of additional muscle and hit a career-best .255 last season over 232 plate appearances while striking out at a career-low 16.8 percent clip. However, Haniger is now back and healthy after missing almost two full seasons. The veteran outfielder slashed .330/.388/.580 across 45 games at the top of the order in 2018 and profiles as a highly viable opposite-handed alternative to the lefty-hitting Crawford in the leadoff spot.
