My Man Michael Harris II has been putting on a clinic since the break. He has obtained a temporary teacher's license and class is in session. Harris had such a rough start to the year, it looked like the Braves might need to send him down. Some were beginning to wonder if the Braves had jumped the gun on the big extension he signed.

Harris has remained a constant on defense for the Braves this season, but he didn't let the slow start with the wood get him down for too long. His hot streak goes beyond the All-Star break. You can read more about Harris' overall season here.

I'll sum the year up for him by leaving you with a couple of stats. On June 6, Harris was hitting .163. After last night's game, he's hitting .291.

Since the All-Star break, Harris II is fourth on the team with a 170 wRC+. He is slashing .388/.436./.576 since the mid-summer popularity contest. Harris' 13.7% K% is tied for best on the team with Ronald Acuna Jr. If it feels like every time he puts the ball in play there's a good chance he's getting a hit, that's because his BABIP is .437 since the break.

Since the break, Harris leads the team in doubles with eight and is second in steals with four. Harris has really turned his season around and continues to stay hot since the break. It's been a pleasure to watch Money Mike regain his Rookie of the Year form.
