Nissan #ProJackets Baseball Report

Aug. 2, 2017

THE FLATS -- With just two months remaining in the season, a number of #ProJackets are primed to help their teams make a push for the playoffs across a number of different leagues.

With the Colorado Rockies in a hunt for an NL Wildard spot, Charlie Blackmon continues to be their spark at the top of the order as he is hitting .366 (15-for-41) with a home run, a double, a triple, three RBIs and 13 runs scored over his last 10 games.

With regular playing time over the last few weeks, Derek Dietrich has totaled a five extra base hits (a home run, a triple and three doubles) and nine RBIs over his last 10 games for the Miami Marlins, while Matt Wieters continues to help the Washington Nationals get ready for the playoffs come October.

On the mound, Blake Wood continues to be a middle relief option for the Cincinnati Reds, as the righty has allowed just one earned run over his last six appearances out of the bullpen.

Along with Wood, a number of #ProJackets' arms in Sam Clay, Brandon Gold, Matthew Gorst, Dusty Isaacs, Zac Ryan and Andrew Robinson are continuing to get even stronger over the past few weeks as the season winds down.

Below is a complete list of the Baseball #ProJackets playing professionally this season.
