It continues a tough stretch for the 27-year-old, who is slashing .079/.167/.316 across his past 10 games. Some regression was expected for Dixon, as his hot start with the Tigers was fueled by a BABIP that approached .400.

Dixon also struck out twice, and he's now whiffing 33.9 percent of the time this season. While the 27-year-old does have a nice .289/.305/.509 slash line with six home runs, his high strikeout rate combined with a high BABIP (.397 entering Tuesday) suggest that some regression could be coming.
Dixon went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Thursday's 6-1 loss to the Rays.
Dixon entered the game on a mini 1-for-13 slump over his past three contests, but he snapped out of the funk and raised his batting average to .296 with the two hits.

Dixon took Branden Kline deep in the ninth inning to give the Tigers a 4-2 victory. It was his fifth home run of the season and second in his past five games. He's also put together a seven-game hitting streak, raising his average to a solid .306 mark across 75 plate appearances.

Making his first start of the season at third base, Dixon continued to produce at the plate. The 27-year-old is now slashing .313/.343/.578 through 64 at-bats, and his solid play should lead to more playing time on a Detroit team that has been struggling to score runs consistently.

Dixon made the most of the three straight starts he collected over the weekend, rapping out three extra-base hits (including a pair of home runs) and driving in three.
