Lindor was hitting .309 with two homers, 16 RBI and six stolen bases through 35 games.

Scherzer and his wife Erica are raising money for Polaris, an organization aimed at stopping human trafficking and for a donation of $25-$50, he’ll sign items–personalized to you or someone you choose (no generics, apparently).
Items that can be autographed include photos, ticket stubs from a Washington Nationals game, baseballs, and Scherzer baseball cards. The deadline to submit a request is September 1, 2016. At the end of the season, the couple will match the donations to Polaris up to $25,000.
