Ryan McMahon News
Colorado Rockies third baseman Ryan McMahon is back in the club's starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's contest against the San Diego Padres and right-hander Seth Lugo. The 28-year-old didn't start Tuesday night's 2-0 shutout loss to the Friars but will return to hit fifth and man third base in Wednesday afternoon's series finale. For the season, McMahon has hit .244 with 23 home runs, five stolen bases, and a .770 OPS across 144 games, the fourth straight full season in which he has reached the 20-homer plateau. He will take on a pitcher enjoying a nice season as Lugo has worked to a solid 3.83 ERA in 24 starts while walking just 5.7% of the hitters he has faced.
Colorado Rockies third baseman Ryan McMahon went 1-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, and three runs scored in Friday's 14-1 rout of the Chicago White Sox. The 28-year-old crushed a fourth-inning three-run blast to make it a 9-1 ballgame and get the blowout fully underway. McMahon has now homered in back-to-back contests to recover from a brutal 2-for-32 swoon in the previous nine outings. The defensive-minded infielder remains on pace for his best season in slugging, slashing .252/.337/.470 with 21 four-baggers, 65 RBI, and five stolen bases across 490 plate appearances.
Colorado Rockies infielder Ryan McMahon is out of the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Atlanta Braves. This appears to be nothing more than a routine rest day for the left-handed slugger. He's slashing .271/.352/.494 with 10 home runs and 38 RBI in 67 games this season. Coco Montes will cover second base and bat eighth versus left-hander Jared Shuster on Friday. Fantasy managers should adjust their lineups accordingly with McMahon on the sideline.
Colorado Rockies third baseman Ryan McMahon has been relevant in fantasy baseball for the past few seasons. His moderate yet consistent play continued this season when the 28-year-old hit .246, slugged 20 homers, stole seven bases, and collected 134 RBI plus runs. McMahon played 153 games in 2022, a season after appearing in 151, and will get everyday at-bats again in 2023, especially with his superb defense. His high strikeout rates, including a 26.5% rate in 2022, have affected his batting averages, but he's on the right track, posting his lowest swinging strike rate since 2017. McMahon's career 90.9 MPH average exit velocity and minuscule 3.4% pop-up rate mean he's capable of maintaining a .250 batting average, especially playing at Coors Field. He offers enough power to keep fantasy managers happy, averaging almost 25 home runs per 162 games over the past four years with a 9.1% barrel rate. McMahon isn't the quickest (34th-percentile sprint speed in 2022), but he can still provide six or seven steals, as his past two campaigns have proven. Despite being subpar on paper, the Rockies lineup will score a decent amount of runs considering the thin air of Colorado, and the former second-rounder will be one of their biggest run producers. McMahon is going around pick 219, a profitable price for his skillset.
