There were many story lines surround former Seminoles in the MLB from the past week from Devon Travis making his long awaited return from injury to Buster Posy heating up after a slow start. Here's the full rundown from the past week.

Buster Posey: C San Fransisco Giants

2016 stats: .264 AVG 7 HR 24 RBI .323 OBP .455 SLG

The former MVP winner still is not back to his normal self, swinging well below his .308 career average, however has started to move in the right direction. In his past seven games, Posey is hitting .333 with two home runs and six RBI scoring five runs.

Devon Travis: IF Toronto Blue Jays

2016 stats: .259 AVG 0 HR 3 RBI .310 OBP .296 SLG

Coming off of an injury that sidelined him for much of 2015 and the beginning of 2016, Travis is getting his groove back in Toronto, playing relatively decent as he continues to get into mid-season form. Over the past seven days, the infielder is 6-24 with 3 RBI and four runs, batting in the midst of a very offensive heavy Blue Jays lineup.

Stephen Drew: IF Washington Nationals

2016 stats: .173 AVG 3 HR 6 RBI .228 OBP .365 SLG

Drew continues to see limited time off the bench, however took advantage of those opportunities recently. The Valdosta native went 3-9 with an inside-the-park home run in his past seven games, starting in two games.

Shane Robinson: OF Los Angeles Angles

2016 stats: .174 AVG 0 HR 2 RBI .296 OBP .174 SLG

The struggles continue for Robinson who continues to see limited time off the bench, getting two at bats in the past seven days. He is responsible for much of the pinch running duties, as he is a liability at the plate.

Tyler Holt: OF Cincinnati Reds

2016 stats: .274 0 HR 4 RBI .352 OBP .339 SLG

Also coming off the bench, Holt has seen some extended work recently, taking advantage in the 10 at bats he has gotten over the past seven days, recording five base hits. With a crowded outfield in Cincinnati, Holt may not see his playing time increase anytime soon, but the Reds may make some moves which would give the 27-year-old some more chances.
