Here is an explanation of this weekly feature. This entry lists the best and worst for the past 30 days of the 2016 regular season, through games of Monday, August 15.

Comment of the week: We’ve lapped the All Star break, so these numbers should be back to normal, with 26-28 game sample sizes. Not that the last 30 days for Jose Altuve should be construed as normal. And to expand on a topic raised last week, Billy Hamilton has stolen 29 bases since the All Star break. The only players with more than that all season are Jonathan Villar (46), Starling Marte (40), and Rajai Davis (32).
