Aybar went 1-for-3 with a home run, a walk, two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Rangers on Thursday.

The homer was Aybar's first since June 29. While Aybar's power output has cooled off in recent months, the 30-year-old has already surpassed his career-highs in both RBI (66) and runs scored (73) this season. He will take a five-game hitting streak into action Friday.

Aybar went 3-for-4 in a loss to the Marlins on Monday, extending his hitting streak to 10 games.

Aybar has been on an impressive run of late, as he has now recorded five consecutive multi-hit games, stealing two bases over that span. He has just two doubles and no home runs during the course of the entire streak, but could certainly be worth a look at a shallow position while he is red hot.
