Abraham Almonte went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit RBI double in Friday's win over the Angels.

Almonte pinch-hit for Mike Aviles in the seventh and came through with an RBI double to tie the game at 1-1. The Indians would score twice more in the inning, enough to secure them the victory.

The production looks nice, but just remember that he was hitting a paltry .204/.271/.259 with the Padres prior to his move to Cleveland.

Abraham Almonte hit a solo home run and an RBI single on Tuesday.

Almonte added an RBI single in the second inning. In addition to the hits, he also added a stolen base and scored two runs.

Abraham Almonte went 4-for-5 with a double, run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's setback against the Dodgers.

Almonte was spectacular at the dish, but an adventure on the base paths, as he was caught stealing and later thrown out to end the game. Fortunately, the latter two mistakes won't be counted in the vast majority of formats. He's almost unowned across formats, and that needs to change. The 25-year-old -- Seattle's Opening Day center fielder and leadoff hitter -- is slashing .361/.368/.528 since coming over in the Chris Denorfia deal. As long as he's hot and playing every day, Almonte should be started in NL-only formats.
