Kyle Lewis News
Seattle Mariners outfielder Kyle Lewis (knee) will be activated from the injured list and he will serve as the team's designated hitter for Tuesday's game against the Oakland Athletics. Tuesday's game will mark his first MLB action since May 2021, when he tore his right meniscus. The 26-year-old sure looked to be back up to speed during his rehab assignment. Over 10 Triple-A games the past few weeks, he tallied three home runs, 12 RBI and six runs while hitting .314/.415/.629. He's a worthy add in all five-outfielder leagues.
Seattle Mariners outfielder Kyle Lewis (knee) is set to meet with the Mariners' athletic trainers. The training staff will determine if he's ready to be activated for his 2022 debut. Mariners manager Scott Servais is hopeful that Lewis will be cleared by the training staff and activated prior to Tuesday's game against the Oakland Athletics. Lewis has been brought along slowly this year after tearing his right meniscus last summer. He played in 10 games at Triple-A as part of his rehab assignment and slashed .314/.415/.629 with three home runs, 12 RBI and six runs. Fantasy managers in need of some outfield help would be wise to claim Lewis off waivers before it's too late.
Seattle Mariners outfielder Kyle Lewis' (knee) minor league rehab assignment ends on Monday, so he's expected to be activated from the injured list to open the team's homestand against the Oakland Athletics on Monday night. If he's not ready by then, the Mariners could send him on a second rehab assignment. The 26-year-old will be making his MLB season debut when he gets into a game, and he is currently 10-for-30 with three home runs, 11 RBI and six runs scored in his eight rehab games with Triple-A Tacoma. He has played on back-to-back days on two different occasions, so Lewis will likely be ready to play for Seattle on Monday. Lewis should have an everyday role between a corner outfield spot and designated hitter for the M's.
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.
