Brandon Crawford homered off Jon Niese in Thursday's loss to the Mets.

The amazing thing about Crawford's emergence is the way he's completely conquered left-handers these last two seasons. He had a .631 OPS against them in 2012, a .546 OPS in 2013, an .879 OPS last year and now a 1.213 OPS against them so far this year. He's been baseball's best shortstop in 2015.

He's certainly worthy of All-Star consideration at the moment.

The shortstop has been brilliant thus far, hitting .303/.385/.514 with six homers, 31 RBI and 21 runs scored. As the sample size rises, all of his numbers are tracking toward career bests.

The 28-year-old is better served to be in the bottom-third of the order (like he was on Monday), but the Giants are pretty banged up right now.
