Mike Yastrzemski News
San Francisco Giants outfielder Mike Yastrzemski is not in the lineup for Sunday's matchup against the Atlanta Braves, according to MLB.com. He hasn't been able to replicate what he's done the last couple of seasons but still has an above-average .221/.308/.454 slash line with 23 HRs, 71 runs, and 58 RBI. He has just a .531 OPS against southpaws this season, though, and will take a seat with Max Fried starting for the Braves. Austin Slater will play center and bat second. Slater has crushed lefties this year with a .266/.363/.481 slash line, along with 14 SBs over 122 games this season. He's a good streaming option for any fantasy manager looking for outfield help.
San Francisco Giants outfielder Mike Yastrzemski (elbow) was scratched from the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the San Diego Padres due to an elbow bruise. Steven Duggar is manning center field in the game with LaMonte Wade Jr. in right field and Kris Bryant in left. Yastrzemski was hit by a pitch on the elbow in Tuesday's game. He was initially part of the Giants' starting lineup for Wednesday, but went on to become a late scratch. He should be considered day-to-day at this point with a chance to return in Thursday's series finale.
San Francisco Giants outfielder Mike Yastrzemski (ankle) is day to day with an ankle contusion, according to Maria Guardado of MLB.com. Yastrzemski exited Wednesday's game in the eighth inning after going 0-for-2 with a walk against the Rockies. He's been hitting well recently, as he's now slashing .245/.302/.469 with three homers, seven RBI and seven runs scored over his last 15 games. The Giants are off on Thursday, so managers should check back for updates on Yastrzemski's condition on Friday.
2019 was a feel-good season for Mike Yastrzemski, as the then 28-year-old posted a .272/.334/.518 slash line with 21 HR, 64 runs scored, and 55 RBI over 411 plate appearances. However, fantasy players were not ready to believe in him going into 2020. Yastrzemski backed things up with a strong follow-up season, compiling a.297/.400/.568 slash line with 10 home runs and 35 RBI over 225 plate appearances. Importantly, he made some solid plate discipline improvements. Yastrzemski was more selective, swinging at fewer pitches in the strike zone. He also swung at fewer pitches out of the strike zone, increased his walk rate significantly, and had a higher BABIP in addition to batting average. He may not be the most exciting fantasy player, but he has established a high floor. As such, his current ADP of 134 seems perfectly reasonable.
