Ryan Braun had six hits in six games this week, including three home runs. He drove in ten runs and scored four times. He hit .273/.360/.682 this week and was worth +.518 WPA.
Marco Estrada pitched a pair of quality starts this week, holding the Cubs to three runs over six innings on Friday and the Padres to two runs on five hits over 6.1 innings Wednesday. He was worth +.077 WPA this week.
Carlos Gomez had six hits in six games this week, including two doubles and a home run. He reached base safely eight times in the Padres series. He hit .375/.500/.688 this week and was worth +.167 WPA.
Jimmy Henderson appeared in three games this week, pitched three scoreless innings and recorded three saves. He allowed just one hit and a walk while recording five strikeouts, and was worth +.343 WPA.
Jean Segura had eight hits in six games this week, including a double and a triple, and at one point he stole a base in five consecutive games. He hit .333/.385/.458 this week and was worth +.255 WPA.
