The third baseman has hits in seven of his last eight games with six runs scored over that time. His 47 runs scored is ninth-best in the National League, and his .275/.335/.475 line has plenty of fantasy owners happy, too.

With his .267/.328/.465 batting line to go along with 40 RBI, 45 run scored, and five stolen bases, Rendon has been a very useful option in mixed leagues this season.
