Stock Up

Entering the final week of the regular season, these are the Dodgers whose stock is on the rise:

Corey Seager – It has been a trying season for Corey battling back from two surgeries and also dealing with a hamstring injury that occurred just as he looked to be trending in the right direction.  In September, Seager has an OPS of .943 and he has six home runs which is the most he has hit in a month this season.  Corey has six games left to pad that number and he is heading into the postseason on a roll.

A.J. Pollock – Pollock missed a large amount of the season due to an elbow infection but since his return he has been trending upward.  Over his last three games, A.J. is 5-13 and in September he has a slash line of .297/.348/.594.  He also has five home runs in the final month of the regular season and looks like he will be a potential difference maker in October.

David Freese – The Dodgers were without Freese for most of the regular season and the Dodgers have brought him along slowly knowing his biggest value comes during the postseason.  In 17 September at-bats, David has two home runs and an OPS of .1382.  He is also batting .471 with an .882 slugging percentage.  Freese will look to come up with some more postseason heroics this October.

Ross Stripling – Like Rich Hill, Ross Stripling was once on the outside looking in at the postseason roster.  Chicken Strip has pitched well in September sporting an ERA of 0.90 and an opponent’s average of just .229.  Ross has already been named to the postseason roster and can pitch out of the swingman role that he has grown accustomed to.
