Heredia went 2-for-4 with a double and a run in a win over the Athletics on Wednesday.
Heredia continues to produce in his everyday role, now having reached safely in five of his last six games. The 27-year-old outfielder doesn't offer much in the way of power, but his above-average contact rate makes him a solid table-setter near the top of the order.
Heredia went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and two walks in Tuesday's win over the Athetlics.
Heredia came through with the big hit in this one, plating the winning run in the top half of the tenth with just his third double of the season. With Dee Gordon (toe) on the disabled list, and shifting back to second base when healthy following the suspension of Robinson Cano, Heredia is in line to see fairly regular playing time in center field. In 63 at-bats, the 27-year-old is slashing .286/.439/.460.
Heredia went 1-for-1 with two walks and a run in a win over the Tigers on Saturday.
Heredia continues to draw starts in center field and is thriving at the plate, as he's now gone 4-for-6 with an RBI, three walks and two runs over the first three games of the series against the Tigers. The 27-year-old is projected to see abundant playing time through the duration of Robinson Cano's 80-game suspension, a development that's shifted Dee Gordon back to second base and opened up the outfield opportunity for Heredia.
Robinson Cano's 80-game PED suspension has opened up an everyday role in center field for Heredia with Dee Gordon moving back to second base and he checked in with a three-hit performance against Detroit, raising his slash line to .296/.418/.444. It probably wouldn't be wise to expect him to maintain that pace since his career OPS is just .671 but he'll at least have the chance to show what he can do with an everyday opportunity after spending most of his Mariners career to this point as part of a platoon.
Heredia, who's appeared in 26 games thus far in 2018, is expected to become the primary centerfielder with Dee Gordon moving to second base in the wake of Robinson Cano's 80-game suspension, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Heredia sports a solid .260/.397/.420 line that includes two home runs and five RBI over 65 plate appearances in 2018. He should enjoy a considerable boost in playing time through the duration of Cano's suspension, which runs into mid-August. Manager Scott Servais confirmed Wednesday that Heredia would see the majority of starts in Gordon's outfield spot, a role that he's filled over 194 games at the big-league level during the last two-plus seasons.
