Thairo Estrada News
San Francisco Giants second baseman Thairo Estrada (illness), who returned to Saturday's lineup, went 1-for-5 with a home run, three RBI, and a stolen base in the 9-1 drubbing of the Colorado Rockies. The 27-year-old first snapped a 19-game homerless skid with a first-inning two-run shot. Estrada then stole his 20th base of the season after driving in a run on a fielders choice. The speedy infielder provides more value to the Giants with the glove than the stick, but he's still a useful source of batting average, runs, and speed for fantasy purposes. Estrada is batting .272 (113-for-415) with 11 homers, 44 RBI, 55 runs scored and the aforementioned 20 thefts.
San Francisco Giants second baseman Thairo Estrada (illness), who was scratched from Friday's lineup versus the Colorado Rockies, is experiencing conjunctivitis. Casey Schmitt watched the keystone and Paul DeJong entered the lineup to cover shortstop in his absence. As Estrada deals with pink eye, it leaves him day-to-day and with his status in question for Saturday's meeting. The speedy infielder has been quiet lately, showing a .226 batting average with just two extra-base hits, three runs scored, and no stolen bases over his last 53 at-bats covering 13 games. Schmitt is in line to gain the most playing time as long as Estrada is out.
Scans came back clean on San Francisco Giants infielder Thairo Estrada (forearm) after he was hit by a pitch on Sunday against the Atlanta Braves. Estrada said he's going to go through treatment during pre-game and expects to be available off the bench on Monday against the Philadelphia Phillies. The 27-year-old should be back in the team's starting lineup on Tuesday. Rookie Casey Schmitt will start at the keystone on Monday and hit ninth against Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola. Estrada has been a decent source of power (10 home runs) and speed (18 stolen) bases in his third year with the Gigantes while also hitting .274/.325/.429 in 84 games.
Thairo Estrada came out of nowhere to post a solid fantasy campaign in 2022, slashing .260/.322/.402 with 14 HR and 21 SB in 541 PAs. Estrada offers plus speed with a Statcast Sprint of 28.3 ft./sec and a solid success rate of approximately 78%, so fantasy managers can probably count on him for bags assuming playing time. Unfortunately, his contact quality metrics aren't nearly as good. His .290 BABIP might look due for positive regression, but his .246 xBA suggests that Estrada was somewhat fortunate last season. Furthermore, Estrada doesn't hit many flies (29.5 FB% last season) or hit them especially hard (91.4 mph average airborne exit velocity, 4.4% Brls/BBE), so it's tough to see where another 14 HR would come from. Estrada offers strong plate discipline with a 6.1 BB% and 16.5 K%, but he probably doesn't have the ceiling to warrant consideration in standard leagues on draft day. However, his projected role as San Francisco's second hitter should give him valuable counting stats for deeper formats. In most leagues, he also qualifies at 2B, SS, and OF. Throw in 15-20 steals and there's likely profit potential at Estrada's current ADP of 186.45.
