Shut out 6-0 on Friday by the Braves, it wasn't for lack of trying on the part of San Francisco Giants outfielder Mike Yastrzemski, seeing that he was responsible for three of the Giants four hits on the night. The rookie had a double and two singles as the rest of the Giants lineup was completely stymied by Atlanta starter Mike Foltynewicz, who allowed just those three hits and a walk over eight masterful innings. Yastrzemski has now hit safely in 13 of his last 16 games and is currently available in 72% of all Yahoo leagues.
San Francisco Giants outfielder Mike Yastrzemski will have the night off on Tuesday against the Pirates. He's been hitting well over his last 10 games with a .286/.394/.464 slash line as he gets his third day off of the month. Austin Slater will get the start in left in his place, as he is hitting .227 with a double, a home run and four runs scored over his last 10 games.
San Francisco Giants outfielder Mike Yastrzemski (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Yastrzemski will get a routine day off here to rest against the left-handed starter. Joey Rickard will bat sixth and play left field versus lefty Clayton Kershaw. Rickard is not worth a look against an elite pitcher like Kershaw.
