DeJong went 1-for-5 with a solo home run during Wednesday's win over Cincinnati.
DeJong also homered in Tuesday's win over the Reds and is now up to 24 homers, 60 RBI, 50 runs and a .283/.320/.535 slash line for the campaign. He's provided a huge power boost for fantasy owners, as shortstop and second base are typically tougher positions to acquire pop from.
DeJong went 2-for-5 with a homer and two RBI against the Reds on Tuesday.
He'd gone into a little skid over the past five games, going 2-for-18 with eight strikeouts, but DeJong has largely avoided lengthy slumps in his rookie season, and he pulled right out of this one. DeJong's 23 homers in 96 games project out to 38 over a full season's work, which is incredible in the middle infield, but it's unlikely that we'll see him maintain batting averages as solid as this year's .285 in the future if he continues striking out at such a high pace (29.1 percent).
DeJong went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Tuesday's 13-4 win over the Reds.
DeJong struck out in his first at-bat, but took off from there with hits in each of his next three. The highlights of his night were a second-inning RBI double and a solo homer in the sixth. While he's now churned out multiple hits in three of his past four games, DeJong had accrued only one RBI in his previous eight games before this effort.
DeJong is out of the lineup Friday against the Pirates.
DeJong has started every game since Aug. 3. In that time he's logged a .299/.347/.518 line, hit seven home runs, and driven in 23 runs. However, he's struggled a bit at the plate lately as he's gone just 6-for-28 (.214) over the last seven games. He'll sit out Friday while Alex Mejia gets the nod to start at shortstop.
DeJong went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Giants.
DeJong erased an early 1-0 deficit with a 386-foot shot to left in the fourth, snapping a rare long-ball drought. The slugging rookie had last gone deep on Aug. 19 prior to Sunday, with the 12-game span between round trippers equaling the longest such stretch of his young career. DeJong has been productive recently despite keeping the ball in the yard, as he's now hit safely in eight of his last 11 contests.
