Fletcher went 4-for-5 with a double and one RBI in Monday's 8-5 loss to Oakland.
Fletcher collected four of the Angels' 14 hits in Monday's loss, including an RBI single in the seventh inning. It was his second straight multi-hit game and fourth in the last nine games. The 5-foot-9 utilityman improved his OPS to .619 with 20 RBI this season.
Fletcher went 2-for-3 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 10-3 win over the Diamondbacks.
Fletcher kicked off a four-run second inning with a sacrifice bunt that scored Taylor Ward and ended up scoring from first on a single that was mishandled in the outfield by Ketel Marte. He would later have an RBI double in the sixth and then scored once again in the eighth on a two-run blast from Jared Walsh. The 27-year-old is now slashing .261/.292/.303 with nine extra-base hits, 19 RBI, 35 runs scored and three stolen bases on the year. There is definitely room for improvement as those averages are currently on pace to be the lowest in his impressive four-year career.
Fletcher will bat ninth and start at second base in Sunday's series finale against the Diamondbacks.
Even with the Angels needing the pitcher to hit for the three-game weekend series in Arizona, Fletcher continues to serve as the team's No. 9 hitter. He's filled that spot in the batting order for every game dating back to May 19, and manager Joe Maddon has shown no inclination to push Fletcher up in the lineup. Fletcher is hitting a credible .267 over that 23-game stretch, but a .321 on-base percentage to go with only four extra-base hits (three doubles, one triple) have muted the impact of his solid batting average.
Fletcher went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 4-2 win over Oakland.

Fletcher got on base in three of his four plate appearances, as he raised his slash line to .254/.281/.288 with 24 runs scored, 13 RBI, two runs scored and a 7:22 BB:K. The 27-year-old is walking a career-low 3.8 percent of the time and is striking out a career-high 11.8 percent of the time in what has been a down year so far for him at the plate in comparison to his numbers since he entered the league in 2018.

Fletcher (groin) remains on the bench Monday against Cleveland.
Fletcher dealt with the groin issue throughout last week but played through it for several games before sitting Sunday's game out. Playing through the injury didn't seem to be working, as he's gone hitless in four straight games.

Fletcher will not be in the lineup Sunday as a result of a groin injury, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Fletcher is starting at second base and hitting ninth Saturday against the Red Sox.
Fletcher's shift down in the order is notable, as he had hit exclusively atop the order to this point in the season.

Fletcher went 2-for-6 with three RBI in in Thursday's win over the Blue Jays.
The 26-year old knocked in a pair of go-ahead runs with a single in extra innings. Fletcher looks to pick up on where he left off the past couple of seasons and can prove to be a reliable leadoff hitter for an explosive Angels offense, as he slashed .319/.376/.425 in 2020.
Fletcher agreed Thursday with the Angels on a five-year, $26 million contract extension, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. The deal includes two additional team options that could push the total value of the extension to $41 million, according to Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic.
The 26-year-old was able to work out a long-term pact with the Halos just hours before the team opened its season with a four-game series against the White Sox. Since reaching the majors in 2018, Fletcher has become one of baseball's preeminent contact hitters; he owns a career .292 average while striking out in only 10.3 percent of his plate appearances. This extension locks Fletcher in as the Angels' table setter for the next half decade.
Fletcher will function as the Angels' everyday second baseman this season, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Fletcher bounced around often during his first three big-league seasons, logging frequent time at second base as well as shortstop, third base and the outfield. He played more games (27) at shortstop last season than his 15 games at second base, due largely to Andrelton Simmons' injury woes. However, the Angels traded for a new starting shortstop in Jose Iglesias in the offseason, allowing Fletcher to settle in at second base. Still, it wouldn't be surprising to see him log time at other positions when needed.
Fletcher went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.
