Jarred Kelenic News
Seattle Mariners outfielder Jarred Kelenic was optioned back to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday, according to Corey Brock of The Athletic. Kelenic had been hitless in his last 39 at-bats, and is 8-for-83 with a 28 percent strikeout rate over 23 games. It sounds like the move was made to allow Kelenic to play under less pressure and find his swing again, as he has shown great potential in the minors where he has slashed .293/.368/.520 with 31 home runs and 37 steals over three seasons. Managers in redraft leagues might want to consider hanging onto Kelenic for now, as he will almost certainly be back in Seattle sooner than later. However, if you're facing a roster crunch, then Kelenic is probably the safest option to let go for now until he gets called back up.
Seattle Mariners outfielder Jarred Kelenic is getting the day off on Sunday against Patrick Sandoval and the Los Angeles Angels. Kelenic is hitless over his last 10 games (0-for-37) so this is a much-needed day of mental rest for the rookie. He's yet to live up to the hype but it's not uncommon for rookies to struggle early on. He's slashing a meager .096/.185/.193 with two home runs and six RBI across 92 plate appearances. Better days are ahead.
Seattle Mariners outfielder Jarred Kelenic went 0-for-4 against the Angels Saturday, giving him an unfortunate ten-game hitless streak. Though he's reached base five times in that span via walk, Kelenic has not given fantasy managers much to be happy about,. Despite his struggles, he still deserves to be on fantasy rosters in all formats. Kelenic's .186 wOBA lags eighty points behind his .266 xwOBA, suggesting better days are coming. There are almost always growing pains for rookies, even the very best ones, so fantasy managers should have expected these ups and downs.
Seattle Mariners outfield prospect Jarred Kelenic is set to break out as a fantasy star all he needs now is playing time. After slugging .468 in 2018 between the Gulf Coast and Appalachian Leagues, the former No. 6 overall pick slugged .540 with 23 home runs and 20 steals in 117 games while making the jump from Single-A to Double-A in 2019. What bodes well for his future success is putting up those numbers while recording a not-terrible 21.4 percent strikeout rate and a solid 10.1 percent walk rate over his two seasons in the minors. Kelenic will be entering his age 21 season this year, and will start 2021 back in the minors. He had a shot to crack the Opening Day roster but suffered a Grade 2 strain of the adductor muscle in his left knee back on March 5. He's already back to playing in Cactus League games but the injury delay put him behind schedule and his ADP, currently at 212, has slipped a bit as a result. The Mariners have a logjam in the outfield with Mitch Haniger, Kyle Lewis, and a combination of Taylor Trammell and Jake Fraley jockeying for playing time, which doesn't leave much room for Kelenic. He could get called up as early as late-April, though, which makes him an intriguing draft selection, particularly in deeper re-draft and keeper leagues. He could still make a big impact this year in fantasy but that largely depends on when he gets called up. If he goes un-drafted in your league, he is an absolute must add whenever he gets the call.
