Oak's Corner: The Matt Kemp Resurgence

Segura enters the Mariners four-game set with the Red Sox hitting a massive .347, the second-highest mark in baseball. That in itself would be a huge value, but he has also scored 51 runs, swiped 14 bags and surprisingly knocked in 42 runs.

He doesn't walk or hit the ball especially hard, but his combination of elite contact (13.3 percent strikeout rate), speed and a 23.1 percent line drive rate make him great at what he does.
