Ryan Mountcastle News
Baltimore Orioles first baseman Ryan Mountcastle (triceps) is back in the starting lineup on Monday against the Detroit Tigers and left-hander Tyler Alexander, serving as the designated hitter and batting third. Mountcastle was hit by a pitch on Saturday and missed Sunday's contest, but he's good to go on Monday. Jesus Aguilar is starting at first base and is hitting fifth on Monday. In 15 games in the month of September, Mountcastle has gone 13-for-53 (.245) with four home runs, 13 RBI and six runs scored. However, in his last seven games, he has just four hits in 22 at-bats with four strikeouts. Fantasy managers will be hoping that Mountcastle will get hot over the final couple weeks of the regular season.
Baltimore Orioles first baseman Ryan Mountcastle took an old friend deep Tuesday night, knocking a solo shot off of former teammate Hunter Harvey in the fifth inning of a 4-3 victory over the Washington Nationals. It's his 22nd home run of the season. Mountcastle reached base four times in this game, going 2-for-3 at the plate with two walks. After a difficult few months, Mountcastle has rebounded with a .289/.360/.600 slash line with four homers in 50 September plate appearances. Fantasy managers are hoping he can finish strong, though this will go down as his least productive season to date.
Baltimore Orioles first baseman Ryan Mountcastle is back at first base and is batting cleanup on Thursday against Los Angeles Angels right-hander Chase Silseth. Mountcastle missed the last two games due to a sinus issue, but fantasy managers need to get him back into their lineups in season-long leagues on Thursday. The 25-year-old is one of the better up-and-coming hitters in the big leagues, and he's slashing a strong .276/.314/.495 with an .809 OPS, 14 home runs, 40 RBI, 35 runs scored and three stolen bases in 293 plate appearances over 70 games in his third big-league season. Ryan McKenna will return to the bench with Mountcastle back in the lineup.
Baltimore Orioles' first baseman/outfielder Ryan Mountcastle was a popular sleeper heading into 2021 fantasy drafts after slashing .333/.386/.492 with five homers in 35 games in 2020. After a slow start, hitting just five long balls through May 31st, the 24-year-old went on a tear from June 1st on and mashed 28 home runs over his last 95 games. Mountcastle set the Orioles single-season rookie home run record with 33 in 2021. Overall, Baltimore's slugger slashed .255/.309/.487 with a .335 WOBA across 586 plate appearances. He's projected to hit second in the Orioles lineup, and his dual-position eligibility at first base and outfield only boosts his fantasy value. Mountcastle's low walk rate (7.0%) and inability to get on base (.309 OBP) dings him a little in points leagues. Still, he is a robust fantasy option in standard 5x5 leagues, especially in league formats that require five starting outfielders. Can the former first-round pick take the next step? Steamer is projecting Mountcastle with a .336 WOBA, a .260/.316/.478 slash line, 32 long balls, and five stolen bases in 2022. Statcast data is not on Mountcastle's side as his 27.5 K% is 14th in percentile rankings while his 39.7% hard-hit percentage is 41st per Baseball Savant. Despite not having the most extraordinary Statcast data, all Mountcastle has ever done since the minors leagues (career .295 average with a .800 OPS in the minors) is mash. According to RotoBaller's Expected Draft Values, Mountcastle's Steamer projection makes him roughly fair value at his current NFBC ADP of 109.
