Anthony Volpe News
On Thursday, New York Yankees first year shortstop Anthony Volpe launched a three-run home run during the ninth inning, despite the Yankees losing 4-3 in extra innings to Detroit. At just 22 years old, he became the first rookie in New York's storied history and one of only 15 rookies in the entire history of baseball to achieve a remarkable 20-home run and 20-stolen base season. His game-tying three-run blast was off Tigers' right-handed closer Alex Lange with two outs.
New York Yankees rookie shortstop Anthony Volpe has been moved up to third in the batting order with outfielder Aaron Judge resting on Thursday against the Detroit Tigers and right-hander Matt Manning. Volpe is only hitting .216 (95-for-439) in his first major-league season, but he's doing a lot of other good things for fantasy managers and has gone 21-for-86 (.244) in August with six home runs, three doubles, a triple, 18 RBI, two stolen bases and eight runs scored in 26 games (25 starts). Taking the hit in average and on-base percentage (.294) is worth it for some fantasy managers, as Volpe has produced 19 home runs, 54 RBI, 21 stolen bases and 52 runs scored in 132 games as the team's everyday shortstop in his first MLB campaign.
New York Yankees shortstop Anthony Volpe went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI against the Miami Marlins. The youngster also walked twice, giving him five over his last four games. He has hit lefties better than righties this season, though his homers per at-bat are close against both side pitchers. His OPS, however, sits at almost 200 points higher versus lefties than righties. Volpe continues to be a source of home runs and steals for fantasy but a major drag on your average.
Anthony Volpe, the No. 1 prospect in the New York Yankees farm system, is expected to debut in the pros at some point this season. The Yankees will mull over their current shortstop situation, consisting of Isiah Kiner-Falefa, but it may be up for grabs in Spring Training. Volpe packs in an overwhelming load of talent in his 5'11" frame. He's got all of the intangibles one can think of and is certainly a perennial talent. The 21-year-old spent most of his 2022 campaign in Double-A Somerset, boasting a .820 OPS with 18 HRs and 44 swipes. Not to mention his 11.15% walk rate. Volpe spent the remaining 22 games in Triple-A to see how his 2023 season may play out if he isn't bumped up. Steamer projects him to amass a .686 OPS and a .303 wOBA, but that could fluctuate depending on where he spends his season. It isn't a shocker that he's granted a 477.43 ADP, but it could slip a little if he gets an early promotion.
