Leody Taveras Homers Wednesday

Texas Rangers outfielder Leody Taveras provided the game-winning hit in a 5-3 win over the New York Mets on Wednesday. Taveras pinch-hit for Robbie Grossman in the seventh inning and wound up launching a two-run homer to break a 3-3 tie. The blast off New York reliever Drew Smith traveled 405 feet and had an exit velocity of 107.8 MPH. Taveras has struggled in 2024, hitting just .213 with five homers, 28 runs, 15 RBI, and six steals across 235 at-bats. Fantasy gamers holding out hope for Taveras might feel some optimism after Wednesday's performance, but it is worth noting the 25-year-old is hitting just .085 over his past 15 games.

Leody Taveras Continues Strong May

Texas Rangers outfielder Leody Taveras went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run scored, and a stolen base in Saturday's 8-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies. He took Jake Bird deep in the seventh inning to give the Rangers a 3-2 lead. His home run traveled 389 feet with an exit velocity of 98.7 mph. It was his Taveras's third long ball of the season. The 25-year-old has been swinging a hot bat in May, hitting .333 (12-for-36) with two home runs, six RBI, 12 runs, and two stolen bases over 10 games. Overall, Taveras is slashing .256/.329/.395 with three home runs, 10 RBI, 20 runs, and four stolen bases over 38 games in 2024. Fantasy managers can use Taveras as a streamer in most leagues while he's wielding a hot bat.

Leody Taveras Sitting On Monday

Texas Rangers outfielder Leody Taveras is starting Monday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays on the bench after starting in each of the team's first three games over the weekend against the Chicago Cubs. With Taveras getting a breather, Travis Jankowski will get the start in center field and will hit ninth against Rays right-hander Ryan Pepiot. The 25-year-old Taveras has started the year going 2-for-9 with a double, two walks, three strikeouts and a run scored in his first 12 plate appearances. Jankowski has already matched his season total in home runs from last year by homering in his only plate appearance of 2024, but DFS managers should consider him a low-upside option for lineups on Monday versus the Rays while in the nine-hole.

Leody Taveras Struggling This Spring

Texas Rangers outfielder Leody Taveras went 1-for-3 versus the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday. The 25-year-old has struggled this spring with a .200 batting average, but has swiped two bags. The Rangers young outfield prospects, Evan Carter and Wyatt Langford have been scorching hot this spring and their strong performances may move Taveras into a fourth outfielder role upon the 2024 season. Taveras hit a respectable .266 with with 14 homers, 67 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 2023, but Carter will lock down one of the outfield spots and the emergence of Langford gives the prospect a real opportunity to crack the Opening Day roster. If Langford makes the roster out of camp, Taveras will have minimum value in the fantasy community without an injury to open up more at-bats.

Leody Taveras Moved Up To Five-Hole Friday

Texas Rangers outfielder Leody Taveras has been promoted to the five-hole for Friday night's ALCS Game 5 versus the Houston Astros and right-hander Justin Verlander. Tavares has spent each of the last seven games hitting out of the nine-hole at the bottom of the Rangers' lineup but Rangers skipper Bruce Bochy has juggled his lineup spots for Game 5, including moving struggling catcher Jonah Heim to the nine-spot. The promotion for Taveras certainly makes sense as he is hitting .321 with a homer, a double, a triple, and seven walks in 35 postseason plate appearances, good for a stealth .993 OPS. Along with his elite defense in center field, the 25-year-old has been one of the Rangers' most important players in these playoffs.

Leody Taveras Sitting With Left-Hand Soreness

Texas Rangers outfielder Leody Taveras (hand) is out of Thursday's lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays. The 25-year-old is experiencing soreness in his left hand, which also caused his absence on Wednesday. It leaves Taveras day-to-day with his next day for a possible return arriving during Friday's series opener against the Cleveland Guardians. Top prospect Evan Carter is patrolling center field and batting ninth on Thursday. Taveras' strong defense has been joined by solid offense overall in 2023, as he's hitting .269 with 12 home runs, 60 RBI, 59 runs scored, and 14 stolen bases in 464 at-bats.

Leody Taveras Scratched On Wednesday

Texas Rangers outfielder Leody Taveras (undisclosed) has been scratched ahead of Wednesday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays. The 25-year-old has been pulled from the lineup due to undisclosed reasons. Before this, Taveras had played in 23 straight games, so maybe his absence is rest related. Regardless, Evan Carter will fill in at center field and bat ninth versus left-hander Yusei Kikuchi on Wednesday. Fantasy managers who have Taveras rostered should check their lineups.

Leody Taveras Sits Amidst Slump

Texas Rangers outfielder Leody Taveras is not in the starting lineup on Friday against the visiting Milwaukee Brewers. In his absence, rookie Julio Pablo Martinez is starting in center field and is batting seventh against Brewers right-hander Brandon Woodruff. The Rangers are hoping a day off for Taveras will help him turn things around at the plate in the month of August. Since the calendar flipped to August, he's gone 9-for-53 (.170) with no home runs, four doubles, a triple, five RBI, 15 strikeouts and three runs scored in 14 starts. The 24-year-old Dominican has provided modest power/speed numbers for fantasy managers in deep-mixed leagues in his fourth big-league season, though, hitting a career-high 11 home runs and stealing 11 bags while also driving in a career-high 54 runs in 105 games played.

Leody Taveras Sitting Out Against Angels

Texas Rangers outfielder Leody Taveras is taking a day off on Tuesday against the visiting Los Angeles Angels. Taveras will get a much-needed day of rest after starting each of the team's last 32 games. Julio Pablo Martinez is making the start in center field and will hit seventh in the batting order against Angels right-hander Lucas Giolito. The 24-year-old Taveras has struggled mightily since the All-Star break, hitting .191 (20-for-105) with a homer, seven doubles, a triple, 14 RBI, 30 strikeouts, two stolen bases and eight runs scored in 28 starts. In his fourth big-league season, Taveras has set career-highs across the board in home runs (11), RBI (54) and runs scored (51) in 104 games while tying his career-high in stolen bases with 11.

Leody Taveras Thumps Solo Shot To Prolong Hot Streak

Texas Rangers outfielder Leody Taveras went 1-for-3 with a solo home run to prevent his team from being shut out versus the Toronto Blue Jays in a 2-1 loss on Friday. The 24-year-old is compiling a very intriguing campaign overall with a career-best 18.7% strikeout rate and 45.5% hard-hit rate. Taveras is hitting .299 with an .842 OPS and seven big flies, 29 RBI, plus seven stolen bases this year. The speedy centerfielder is generally in the lineup for his glove, but he's waving a fearsome bat right now. Taveras is hitting .313 (26-for-83) with six long balls and 15 RBI going over his last 23 games for an extended hot streak. Performing to ninth-round value in mixed roto leagues on the year as a whole, the switch-hitter deserves to be rostered in far greater than just one-third of Yahoo leagues.
