Ryan McMahon News
Colorado Rockies' third baseman Ryan McMahon is not in the lineup on Saturday vs. the Cincinnati Reds. Josh Fuentes is starting at third base and batting sixth in lieu of McMahon. The 26-year-old is batting .254 with a .801 OPS to go along with 14 home runs, 37 RBI, and three stolen bases on the season. He should be back out there for Sunday's finale against Cincinnati.
Colorado Rockies' third baseman Ryan McMahon went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run and two strikeouts in an 11-5 loss to the Reds on Friday. McMahon blasted his 14th long ball of the season, a three-run shot, off of Tyler Mahle in the top of the sixth inning. It cut into Cincinnati's lead but the game was well in hand by that point. It was McMahon's first homer since May 25. He's slashing .254/.305/.496 with 14 home runs, 37 RBI, and three stolen bases over 228 at-bats on the year. His counting stats certainly make him fantasy-worthy but the batting line could use some work.
Colorado Rockies infielder Ryan McMahon is out of the lineup for Friday night's matchup with the Athletics. It looks to be a day off for McMahon, who is slashing .259/.313/.507 with 13 home runs, three steals, 32 RBI and 36 runs scored over 56 games. With McMahon out, Garrett Hampson will get the start at second and bat sixth against Frankie Montas and the Athletics.
Colorado Rockies infielder Ryan McMahon has been up and down his entire tenure with the Rockies. In 2020, he did hit nine homers in the shortened season and saw his ISO jump to a career high .203 his second straight season posting an ISO of .200 or higher. But the averaged dipped to .215 while the strikeout rate blew up to 34.2 percent. It's not like he became a free-swinger all of a sudden. In fact, his chase rate was identical to 2019, he was just swinging less often in 2020, particularly at pitches in the zone. His swinging-strike rate in 2020 (14.6) was actually just lower than it was in 2019 (14.7). That could mean it was more of his approach, rather than a physical struggle, or it could just be circumstances of a shortened season. Regardless, we expect the strikeouts to decrease a bit this season, leading to an uptick in average. We already know he can provide plenty of power in Colorado, but posting a career-high 11.2 percent barrel rate -- and that rate climbing every year he's been in the bigs -- is reason to remain excited for that power output. McMahon is barely a top-250 pick, going off the board with an average pick of 242, but he provides multiple-positional eligibility and can provide cheap pop, if nothing else. With Nolan Arenado shipped off to St. Louis, and with Brendan Rodgers shelved with a hamstring injury, McMahon got a double dose of good playing time news this offseason. He should get a small bump up your rankings with the potential for full-time plate appearances in 2021.
