Mike Yastrzemski News
The San Francisco Giants have reached a one-year deal with Mike Yastrzemski that will pay the outfielder $6.1 million dollars in the 2023 season. The 32-year-old Yastrzemski avoids arbitration with this pact and remains eligible for free agency following the 2025 season. He will look to be more productive in the upcoming campaign after a career-worst offensive output in 2022 that saw him slash .214/.305/.392 with 17 home runs in 558 plate appearances across 148 games.
San Francisco Giants outfielder Mike Yastrzemski (calf) has been held out of action for each of the team's last two games as he's been dealing with calf soreness. In his absence, the team has gone with Yermin Mercedes, Austin Slater and Luis Gonzalez in the outfield for each of the last two games. It sounds as if Yastrzemski is day-to-day at this point. The 31-year-old owns a .234/.330/.410 slash line on the year to go along with nine home runs, 38 RBI and 42 runs.
San Francisco Giants outfielder Mike Yastrzemski went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two strikeouts during Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves. He took Charlie Morton deep in the first inning for his seventh long ball of the season. The 31-year-old is starting to heat up and has now driven in four runs over his last five games. He has been solid this season, slashing .256/.363/.446 with seven home runs, 26 RBI, and 34 runs scored over 59 games. Yastrzemski should be rostered in all leagues as he hits near the top of the Giants order and provides fantasy managers some pop along with a solid on-base percentage in OBP formats.
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.
