Ender Inciarte

Inciarte is slowly, but surely, receiving more playing time in between off days. In fact, Inciarte was in the starting lineup for all of the games this week. Inciarte has had an outstanding start to the season and is becoming one of the most productive lead off hitters around. At only 24 years old, Inciarte may have that leadoff spot locked up for the near future.

This past week, Inciarte went 9-for-27 (.333). His season average has consistently stayed at or near .300, and today it stands at .309. He scored three runs and drove in three as well. One of those runs and all 3 RBI came on his first home run of the season against the Nationals.
