DJ LeMahieu. Hitting just .174 in his last six games, LeMahieu has cooled off here and there from his torrid first two months, though he’s still having a very nice season at second base. He’s just 4-for-23 over his past six games.

Michael McKenry. It’s not so much the scope of McKenry’s week (just 1-for-8), but more so the lack of time on the field for a guy who hit well north of .300 last season. In a way, though, that may be a good thing; last year, McKenry effectively platooned at catcher (and did very well!) — this season, he’s able to be a true backup, playing every third or fourth day, because Nick Hundley has been so good as the everyday catcher.

Kyle Kendrick. He’s allowed five home runs in the last seven days. Seriously, how much longer do we see him in the rotation? It can’t be all year. …right? Guys?

John Axford, Boone Logan and Rafael Betancourt. In six combined games this week, the three vets are 1-for-3 in save opportunities, and have allowed seven hits, five walks, and seven runs in their last 3.2 innings. Quality bullpen vets, where hast thou gone?
