Mancini has been thriving since his move to the leadoff role and he seems to have found his power stroke of late too, as this was his third long ball in his last four games to bring his total up to six on the season. He's scored eight runs and collected six RBI over that stretch, a hot streak that has pumped his slash line up to .275/.343/.444 and he should continue to see increased upside as a source of runs as long as he remains a fixture atop Baltimore's lineup.

He's reached base safely in eight straight games and 13 of his last 14, and the 26-year-old figures to remain a fixture at the top of the O's order as long as he's providing the hitters behind him with run-producing opportunities.
