Jarred Kelenic News
Despite recording just one hit in Sunday's 8-7 loss to the division-rival Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners outfielder Jarred Kelenic was busy in the box score. He finished the day going 1-for-4 with two RBI, a run scored, a stolen base and a walk. Kelenic missed a good portion of the second half of the season after fracturing his foot after he kicked a water cooler in the dugout in frustration. Since returning from the injured list on Sept. 11, he's gone 8-for-28 (.286) with a double, four RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in nine games (eight starts) for the M's. Seattle is in a furious battle for the final wild-card spot in the American League in the final week of the regular season and are currently half a game back of the division-rival Houston Astros.
Seattle Mariners outfielder Jarred Kelenic is not in the starting lineup Monday night against the Oakland A's and left-hander JP Sears. The youngster went 0-for-2 before being replaced by a pinch-hitter in Sunday's series finale and will predictably sit against same-handed pitching on Monday in Oakland. Kelenic recently returned from a broken foot sustained when he kicked a water cooler in the dugout and has three hits, all singles, and a walk across 16 plate appearances since getting back into the fold. For the season, the 24-year-old has hit .249 with 11 home runs, 12 stolen bases, and a .745 OPS across 378 plate appearances. His power and speed should make him an attractive fantasy target next spring.
Seattle Mariners outfielder Jarred Kelenic (foot) is back in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The 24-year-old sat out of Wednesday's contest after fouling a ball off his foot. Luckily, Kelenic avoided serious injury and is ready to play again after an off day on Thursday. He'll cover left field and bat sixth versus right-hander Bobby Miller on Friday. Fantasy managers who have Kelenic rostered should make sure to get him back in there for this game.
Most people probably thought Seattle Mariners outfielder Jarred Kelenic could only go up after his rough rookie season in 2021, but they turned out to be wrong. After hitting .181/.265/.350 with 14 home runs, 43 RBI, 41 runs scored and six stolen bases in 93 games in his first year with Seattle, he slashed .141/.221/.313 with seven homers, 17 RBI, 20 runs scored and five steals in 54 contests in his sophomore season. Kelenic was demoted to the minors twice in 2022 and has just been straight overmatched so far at the plate in his 147 games at the major-league level. Nobody should be giving up on the youngster just yet, though, including the Mariners. However, he's going to need to pick it up and start making more contact or he'll lose out on precious playing time in a crowded M's outfield that includes Julio Rodriguez, Teoscar Hernandez, AJ Pollock, Dylan Moore and Sam Haggerty. RotoBaller has Kelenic ranked as the No. 86 fantasy outfielder entering spring training, but he has post-hype prospect written all over him if he can figure things out offensively.
