Kyle Lewis News
Seattle Mariners outfielder Kyle Lewis (knee) will miss the remainder of the 2021 season, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reported Tuesday. The 2020 AL Rookie of the Year underwent knee surgery in June to repair a torn meniscus and is now suffering from a bone bruise in his injured right knee. It's a harsh fate for Lewis, who only played in 36 games this season and hit .246/.333/.392 with five home runs, 11 RBI, two stolen bases, and 15 runs scored on 32 hits. Fantasy managers can safely move on from Lewis as he tries to get healthy for 2022.
Seattle Mariners outfielder Kyle Lewis (knee) suffered a setback while recovering and will not head out on a minor league rehab assignment. He is currently recovering from surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee. The young outfielder does not have a timetable to return right now. That means, it's unlikely that Lewis gets back on the field for the Mariners this season. The 26-year-old saw limited time in Seattle this season and can probably be dropped in most fantasy formats down the stretch.
The Seattle Mariners are hopeful outfielder Kyle Lewis (knee) will be able to start a rehab assignment as soon as this weekend, it was reported on Monday. Lewis was sidelined in June when he required surgery to repair a partially torn meniscus in his right knee but has recently picked up more baseball activities. Returning so soon after surgery could be a positive step for the young outfielder, who is only playing in his third MLB season. Fantasy managers should stay tuned for updates this week on how the 26-year-old is progressing.
Seattle Mariners outfielder Kyle Lewis was a feel-good story in 2020. He smacked six home runs over 18 games after being called up in September of 2019, so he was a known commodity entering last season. He was not expected to take home American League Rookie of the Year honors, but that's exactly what he did with a .262/.364/.437 slash line with 11 home runs, 28 RBI and five stolen bases. It was a tale of two seasons for the 25-year-old, who got off to a scorching-hot start with a .328/.418/.526 slash line with 38 strikeouts in July and August (131 at-bats), but he put up a .147/.270/.280 line with 33 K's over 75 at-bats in September. He finished 2020 with a 29.3% strikeout rate, an improvement from the 38.7% he logged in 2019 but above the MLB average of 21.8%. Lewis' zone-contact rate (73.3%) and chase-contact rate (41.4%) were both well below league averages at 82.8% and 59.4%, respectively. His poor plate discipline leads to all of those strikeouts, but clearly it wasn't all bad for the reigning AL Rookie of the Year. His 14.0% walk rate in 2020, which ranked in the 87th percentile, was encouraging, and his career 14.4% barrel rate and 18.7% HR/FB show his power is real. The home run upside is there if you can stomach the strikeouts, and he should be good for a handful of stolen bases. If he can show nominal improvement in his plate discipline, Lewis can provide solid return on his 128 ADP.
