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 Sunday, July 24.

Comment of the week: The All-Star break will affect this and the next few Trailing 30 reports, since the four days off create small sample sizes, a lot of ties in counting stats, and some unusual league leaders/trailers. Of course, looking at some of the National League OPS leaders and the presence of Andrelton Simmons among American League batting leaders, you probably surmised that. On top of that, the five National Leaguers who’ve scored the most runs over the past 30 days all have two-syllable last names. Coincidence? I think not.
