Ezequiel Tovar News
Colorado Rockies shortstop Ezequiel Tovar went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, three runs scored and a walk in Friday's lopsided 14-1 triumph over the Chicago White Sox. The 22-year-old popped a first-inning two-run homer to get Colorado in the scoring column before driving in another run on a fielder's choice with the game well in hand during the seventh frame. Tovar is starting to put together the talent that made him the No. 1 Rockies prospect entering 2022. Over his last 11 games, Tovar is hitting .364 (16-for-44) with four big flies, three doubles, seven RBI, and two stolen bases since Aug. 7. The speedy infielder's fantasy arrow is beginning to shoot up especially while batting first or second quite a bit of late.
Colorado Rockies shortstop Ezequiel Tovar is starting at shortstop and batting in the leadoff spot on Friday against the San Francisco Giants and right-hander Ross Stripling. Tovar continues to rise up the Rockies' lineup while going 22-for-67 (.328) with three home runs, two doubles, a triple, 14 RBI, a stolen base and 11 runs scored in his last 17 games since June 13. The 21-year-old is seeing regular time at the 6 as Colorado's regular shortstop and is currently hitting .266/.303/.430 with eight home runs, 20 doubles, two triples, 41 RBI, four stolen bases and 41 runs scored in 310 plate appearances over 81 games. Tovar made his major-league debut in 2022, but he played in only nine games.
The Colorado Rockies announced on Thursday that they have reinstated shortstop Ezequiel Tovar from the paternity list and optioned infielder Connor Kaiser to Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move. Tovar should be back in the team's starting lineup on Friday for the series opener against the Los Angeles Angels. Colorado has an off day on Thursday. In his first full major-league season, the 21-year-old middle infielder is hitting .256 (64-for-250) with six home runs, 19 doubles, a triple, 30 RBI, three stolen bases and 32 runs scored in 70 games (264 plate appearances). He's picked things up in June, going 20-for-67 (.299) with three homers, four doubles, eight RBI and a stolen base in 17 games. Fantasy managers will want to get him back in their lineups this weekend.
If not for an upper leg injury in June, shortstop Ezequiel Tovar may have pushed the Colorado Rockies to potentially open space for him at the midseason trade deadline in 2022. Instead, after hitting 13 home runs and stealing 17 bases in just 66 Double-A games before his injury, Tovar played just five games once he was healthy in Triple-A before Colorado brought him up for a brief trial to end the season. While his overall line didn't blow anyone away, he flashed impressive raw power, with 87.5% of his contact classified as medium- or hard-hit. Tovar's defense has significantly improved in his minor league time, giving him a chance to stick at shortstop and provide fantasy managers with a guy that can give double-digit homers and steals from the back end of the draft.
