Ryan Mountcastle News
Baltimore Orioles first baseman/outfielder Ryan Mountcastle continued to produce at the plate in Sunday's 18-5 win over the Indians, going 3-for-5 with two singles, a double, two RBI, and a strikeout. The 24-year-old started the season off very slowly but has been on fire lately and now has a .254/.282/.447 slash line with eight home runs and 30 RBI on the season. He is a solid waiver-wire option right now given his recent performance and how he performed in the 2020 season.
Baltimore Orioles first baseman/outfielder Ryan Mountcastle homered in his second straight game and hit his third HR in his last four games in Saturday's 10-4 loss to the Indians. Mountcastle went 2-for-3 with a double and a solo home run. The 24-year-old has been heating up lately and now owns a .245/.275/.438 slash line with eight HR, 28 RBI, and three stolen bases on the season. He is worth a look given that he is rostered in just 47 percent of leagues.
Baltimore Orioles first baseman/outfielder Ryan Mountcastle had another nice day at the plate in Friday's 3-1 win over the Indians, going 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and two strikeouts. Mountcastle smacked a low seventh-inning Bryan Shaw breaking pitch just over the left-center wall to put the O's on the board. The 24-year-old has picked things up lately at the plate, slashing .286/.310/.714 with three HR and seven RBI in his last seven games. Fantasy managers know how well he can play based on his 2020 season, so he is definitely worth keeping an eye on over the coming days.
The Baltimore Orioles eventually called up first baseman/outfielderRyan Mountcastle to the major league team midway through the 2020 season, and he promptly demonstrated why hes considered a major league-ready bat, hitting .333/.386/.492 with five homers in 35 games. That came on the back of a breakout Triple-A season in 2019 in which he hit 25 homers in 127 games with a .312/.344/.527 slash line. The issue for Mountcastle was where he'd play at the next level, with the Orioles utilizing him mainly in left field before shifting him to first base for the final part of the season. If Mountcastle hits, hell be in the everyday lineup with dual-position eligibility boosting his fantasy value. With only a small MLB sample size to draw from, it is easy to overvalue Mountcastle for the 2021 season. But his .333 batting average was a career best at any professional level, despite being inflated due to a .398 BABIP. Mountcastle has the tools to have a solid first full season in the majors and a very productive career, but a lack of speed and a pretty weak lineup around him will limit his fantasy value this year. His ADP around 140 drains away almost all of the upside he has for the 2021 season and ignores the likely growing pains that he'll experience more often than not. Don't avoid Mountcastle in drafts, just don't reach for unobtainable numbers.
