Mariners' hot hitter #2 INF/OF Dylan Moore

Dylan Moore has filled in nicely for Mariners' shortstop J.P. Crawford since Crawford has been out with an oblique injury. Moore has been an exceptional utility man for the Mariners playing in both the outfield and infield positions. He really has made the most of his opportunity to start everyday for the Mariners this year. On the season Dylan Moore is hitting .229, with a .333 OBP, four home runs, 15 RBIs, and six stolen bases. In his last 15 games, Moore is slashing .271/.368/.604, with three home runs, 11 RBIs, and 10 runs scored.

Mariners' manager Scott Servais has said, he likes the at bats Dylan Moore has had this season, and that Moore is seeing the ball well. How Servais decides to use Moore going forward now that J.P. Crawford is coming back from the IL will be interesting to see. Keeping Moore's hot bat in the lineup should be a priority. Moore could move over to play second base with Jorge Polanco still nursing a hamstring injury.

The versatility of Dylan Moore is unique in that he can play almost every position on the field. Which means there are many positions for Scott Servais to find a place for Moore to get into the starting lineup. Moore's clutch RBI-double in game two of the Mariners series with the Orioles helped the Mariners salvage a game in that series. Hopefully, in New York, Dylan Moore can continue his hot hitting and help the Mariners defeat the Yankees.
