Dozier went 2-for-5 with a walk-off home run, his 19th and his second walk-off home run of the season, in Friday's win over Detroit.

Dozier's home run capped off an improbable comeback for the Twins who were down five runs heading into the ninth inning. It also marked his second walk-off home run in the past week. Dozier lost out on the final vote for a spot on the AL All Star team, but he's having an impressive season as he's just four home runs from tying his career high (23 in 2014).

Dozier filled up the scorecard, going 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and a pair of stolen bases in Minnesota's win over the Orioles on Wednesday afternoon.

It's just the kind of performance Dozier owners have come to appreciate. He now has 18 home runs, 45 RBI, and nine stolen bases to compliment a respectable .260 average.

Dozier went 2-for-4 with a double, a steal and two runs scored in a 7-2 win over the Cubs on Friday.

Dozier entered Friday's game in a bit of slump, as he only had one multi-hit game in the prior 11 contests. He responded by being aggressive early in the count in this one, and it paid off. The 28-year-old won't help fantasy teams in batting average, but he's been an asset in all the other offensive categories, as usual, and he's stolen two bases in the last four games after swiping just three in the first 62.

Dozier went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a double in Minnesota's 4-3 win Sunday over the Rangers.

While he still has just three stolen bases on the season, the 28-year-old leads all second baseman with 13 home runs and is second in all of baseball with 51 runs scored. Dozier should continue to rack up the counting stats atop the Minnesota lineup and could make a run at his first career All-Star selection if he keeps producing at this level.

Dozier went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, two runs scored and a walk at Texas on Friday.

Dozier's home run tied the game in the eighth inning before the Minnesota bullpen imploded for four runs in the bottom of the frame. The 28-year-old second baseman is having an excellent campaign in 2015, with 49 runs scored and a career-high .868 OPS in 59 games played.

Dozier went 2-for-4 Saturday with two runs scored, an RBI, a double and his 11th home run of the season.

Dozier went 2-for-5 with two runs scored Thursday against Boston.

Not only has Dozier resurrected his power numbers after starting slow, but he's also improved his batting average significantly, as its current .263 mark is just one point off his season high. Dozier's 44 runs scored are also good for second in baseball, nestled right between offensive megastuds Josh Donaldson and Bryce Harper.

Dozier went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored in a 6-4 loss to Toronto on Friday.

Dozier led off the bottom of the first with a double and came around to score, but was silenced by Mark Buehrle along with the rest of the Minnesota offense following their four-run outburst in the first inning. Nonetheless, he's rebounded from a quiet April to hit .270/.345/.600 in May, having jacked seven homers this month. He's still lacking in steals -- just three on the year -- but those will come, and fantasy owners won't complain about all those homers, RBI and runs.

Dozier went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs, 4 RBI and a walk on Sunday against the White Sox.

After a sluggish start to the season, Dozier has really picked it up lately and now has seven home runs and 10 RBI in his last 13 games. The recent power surge has his season OPS all the way up to .841, and Dozier is returning to form as a fine source of counting stats in a surprisingly strong Twins lineup.

Dozier went 1-for-2 Saturday with two walks and a solo home run, his sixth jack of the season.

That's home runs in back-to-back games, and four of the last seven, for Dozier, who has all but erased the memory of his slow April with a .322 (19-for-59) May.
