Matt Duffy VS. Justin Turner

Another close race, but the two components that give the advantage to Duffy is that he has a greater WAR (4.0), and he has played in 14 more games this year. Turner and Duffy are both huge surprises this year, but taking Duffy out of the lineup would hurt the Giants more than if Turner was taken out of the Dodgers lineup.

Duffy–.305/.342/.466, 10 home runs, 59 RBI, 23 doubles, .961 fielding percentage, and 4.0 WAR.

Turner–.316/.374/.549, 14 home runs, 47 RBI, 20 doubles, .954 fielding percentage, and 3.6 WAR.

Advantage Duffy.
