Franmil Reyes News
Cleveland Indians outfielder Franmil Reyes (abdomen) could be out for up to seven weeks. Reyes was yanked from Saturday's matchup against Minnesota due to a left oblique strain, and while he could be back sooner, he may also be out longer than expected. The 25-year-old has been one of the most productive fantasy options this season, batting .257 to go along with 29 RBI and 11 home runs throughout 40 games.
The Cleveland Indians have placed outfielder Franmil Reyes (abdomen) on the 10-day injured list. Infielder Owen Miller was called up from Triple-A in a corresponding move. Reyes was removed from Saturday's game after straining his left abdominal muscle on a swing in the sixth inning. Reyes has had a solid 2021 campaign so far, slashing .257/.316/.576 with 11 home runs and 29 RBI over 40 games. While he is out, Harold Ramirez and Jake Bauers should see an uptick in playing time, while Miller - who had a 1.067 OPS at Triple-A - should get some chances as well.
Cleveland Indians outfielder Franmil Reyes (abdomen) exited Saturday's game with a left abdominal strain, according to Zack Meisel of The Athletic. Reyes injured himself during an at-bat in the sixth inning, and left the field in visible pain. Meisel adds that Reyes will undergo imaging and testing later today, and the team should have more details on his condition tomorrow morning. Managers should consider Reyes day-to-day for now, but be prepared for a potential stint on the injured list coming his way.
Franmil Reyes is listed at 6' 5" and 265 pounds, which seems generous. Regardless, he's a mountain of a man and has been nicknamed Franimal for a reason, as he is one of the most prodigious power bats in the game. In 2019, Reyes clubbed 37 home runs. Last season, the exit velocity was in the 91st percentile, barrel rate was in the 84% percentile, and hard hit rate was in the 79th percentile. He will likely bat cleanup for an Indians team that is projected to score the 12th-most runs in baseball. Now, not all is rosy when it comes to Reyes. The strikeout rate approaches 30% and the batting average will likely be in the .250 range. In addition, he is only DH/UTIL eligible. Now, out of the top 30 players projected to hit the most home runs this season, only two can be found past round 12, Reyes and Miguel Sano. The stats are almost identical and Sano has first base eligibility, but his batting average will likely be 20 points lower. If you need power in the middle stages of the draft without completing tanking your batting average, Reyes could be your savior.
