Valencia went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run and a walk in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia's 410-foot shot to center in the seventh erased a 3-2 deficit and gave the Mariners a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The 33-year-old hadn't gone deep since Aug. 28, and the three RBI he tallied with Tuesday's round tripper brought his monthly total to a meager four. The lack of run production is part of what has been a miserable September for Valencia, one that's seen him hit just .167 over 32 plate appearances.

Valencia went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs in Monday's 7-6 loss to the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia's 419-foot shot to center in the second opened the scoring on the night and served as his first round tripper since Aug. 6. The veteran has also reached double-digit RBI for the fourth straight month and retains a solid chance of surpassing his career highs in homers (18) and RBI (72) with over a month left in the season.

Valencia is projected to platoon with the left-handed hitting and newly acquired Yonder Alonso at first base moving forward, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Valencia has steadily improved against right-handed pitching as his career has unfolded, Alonso brings a solid .286 average and .948 OPS -- along with 18 home runs and 40 RBI -- against that handedness this season. Valencia's overall playing time thus projects to take a hit, although the designated hitter spot serves as a way to get both players in the lineup simultaneously on occasion.

Valencia went 2-for-3 with a double, a solo home run, a walk and two runs in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia's 12th round tripper of the season had to survive a replay review but was ultimately confirmed. The 32-year-old is off to a hot start in August, hitting .417 over the first three games of the month. The veteran infielder's solo blast also marked the first time he'd gone deep since July 17, and at that point in the game, was just his second extra-base hit since that contest.

Valencia went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and a run in Monday's 6-4 win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia's fourth-inning hit to left was officially scored as a single, but he finished the play on third after Drew Robinson allowed the ball to slip under his glove and roll to the wall. Despite hitting just .238 in July, Valencia wrapped up the month hitting safely in seven of his last nine games, although all were one-hit efforts and he only tallied one extra-base hit during that stretch as well.

Valencia went 2-for-4 with a double, a homer, a walk, two runs and two RBI in Monday's 10-inning win over Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia's 10th-inning long ball gave his team an insurance run after Kyle Seager had just put Seattle ahead with one of his own in the previous at-bat. Nelson Cruz went deep in this one as well, giving the trio eight home runs between them in the past three games. Valencia also hit an RBI double in the fourth inning.

Valencia went 2-for-5 with a double and a three-run homer Sunday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia's game tying long ball in the top of the fifth provided his first RBI since a July 6th three-run shot against the Athletics. He's just five short of last season's 51 RBI in 46 fewer games played, as moving from Oakland's subpar lineup to a more dangerous Seattle unit has paid dividends for Valencia's counting stats. The veteran slugger's .271/.331/.428 line is actually inferior to his 2016 output of .287/.346/.446 yet he's providing more fantasy value this year.

Valencia went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs in Friday's 7-2 win over the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia already has a pair of three-hit efforts in his first seven games of July and is sporting a .346 average over that stretch. Although all but two of his nine hits during that span have been singles, Valencia is doing an excellent job of setting up RBI opportunities for the likes of Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz, Mitch Haniger and Kyle Seager hitting behind him. His production from the beginning of May to date -- which includes a .312/.367/.470 line with eight home runs and 38 RBI -- exemplifies exactly why the Mariners opted to bring his veteran bat on board this offseason.

Valencia went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Thursday's 7-4 loss to the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia gave Seattle a brief ray of hope with his ninth-inning round tripper, which marked his first homer of July. The veteran has hit safely in four of the first six games of the month as well, a solid start after hitting .306 and .308, respectively, in May and June.
