Ryan Mountcastle News
Baltimore Orioles first baseman Ryan Mountcastle (wrist) has been activated from the 10-day injured list. He will be slotting in at designated hitter and batting fifth in the team's matchup against the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday. Mountcastle was on the shelf for the minimum 10 days due to a left wrist strain. The 25-year-old has appeared in 28 games so far this year and he's slashing .268/.299/.402 with four home runs, 16 RBI and 10 runs.
Baltimore Orioles infielder Ryan Mountcastle (wrist) has been placed on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to May 11. This is not shocking news after Mountcastle has missed the last few games due to a left wrist strain. The 25-year-old is hitting .268/.299/.402 with four home runs this season. Fantasy managers should be patient with him through this injury. Tyler Nevin will cover first base and bat fifth versus lefty Eduardo Rodriguez on Friday. There isn't much upside in Nevin's bat, so fantasy managers can likely continue to avoid him.
Baltimore Orioles first baseman Ryan Mountcastle (wrist) is not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the St. Louis Cardinals. Mountcastle is considered day-to-day and will miss his second straight game due to a sore left wrist. Hopefully the 25-year-old slugger will be available over the weekend for his fantasy managers. Through his first 28 games this year, he's hitting .268/.299/.402 with four home runs, 16 RBI, 10 runs scored and two stolen bases in 117 plate appearances. Trey Mancini is starting at the cold corner and is hitting third on Thursday, while Tyler Nevin is in left field and is batting fifth against Cardinals left-hander Steven Matz.
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.
