"He's really played outstanding ball after coming off the DL," manager Bruce Bochy said. "Nobody is hitting the ball harder than he is."
Theriot was batting .500 (14-for-28) through seven games in the month of June, with a .563 on-base percentage and a .607 slugging percentage.
His averages could be even higher, too, had some of his several line-drive outs and hard grounders gone through for hits.
"He's getting hard outs, too," Bochy said. "If you look at the percentage of hard-hit balls, he's probably leading our club right now the last 10 days."
