Players to Watch (Aug. 20 vs. Oklahoma City)
MATT KATA hit safely in six of his last eight games (.364, 12-for-33) with eight RBI. However, he is 2-for-21 over his last seven home games. He’s due.
BRAD NELSON hit safely in 17 of 20 home games since All-Star break (28-for-70).
YANGERVIS SOLARTE is hitless in each of last two games, his first consecutive hitless games since July 23-24. He has not gone three straight games this season, and his current 0-for-11 skid is his longest of the season. He’s due, as well.
