San Francisco Giants outfielder Mike Yastrzemski had a huge day in Friday's 10-9 extra-inning win over the Diamondbacks, going 3-for-6 with three home runs, four RBI, and a strikeout. Yaz hit a solo homer in the third inning, a two-run shot in the seventh, and then the go-ahead HR in the 11th. The 28-year-old has been raking lately and now has six HR in his last seven games and 16 on the season. He also has a .272/.324/.548slash line with 45 RBI. Given how hot he has been, Yastrzemski is certainly worth a waiver-wire add for the end of the fantasy season.
