1B Jesus Aguilar

Aguilar leads the NL with 79 RBI’s, as well as by-far the team leader in the category along with 20 HR’s. The veteran first-baseman is 5-for-12 across his last three games with one HR, one double, three runs scored, and three RBI’s.

OF Lewis Brinson

The hottest hitter in baseball at the moment, Brinson is slashing .390/.432/.780 across his last 11 games with four HR’s and 15 RBI’s. This phenomenal run also includes six multi-hit games, two of which the 27-year-old outfielder has collected three hits.
