Mike Yastrzemski 2019 Outlook

Recommended Posts

  • Mike Yastrzemski crushed three home runs to power the Giants to a 10-9 victory over the Diamondbacks in an 11-inning marathon on Friday.

    Yastrzemski scorched a line-drive homer to right field off Diamondbacks’ starter Mike Leake in the third inning, took lefty T.J. McFarland deep to left-center field for a two-run shot in the seventh inning and capped off the three-homer explosion with a go-ahead solo shot to center field off righty Yoan Lopez in the 11th inning. It was the first multi-homer effort of his career. The 28-year-old rookie outfielder has flashed some impressive over-the-fence power, launching 16 round-trippers in just 263 plate appearances at the major-league level this season. He needs to be owned in all fantasy formats, including shallow mixed leagues.

is this kid really a must own as the rotoworld writers suggest? Anyone making the add in 10 team leagues?

No way, but he's certainly someone to consider. He was hitting .256 the past couple weeks coming into tonight. But he should probably be added by somebody in your league.

I'm not sure how you could pass him up in a 10-team+ league

In his last 30 days, he's got 17 runs, 9 HR, 20 RBI, and a BA/OPS of .298/.1011

I'll happily put that kind of production in my line-up every day. Even without the 3-homer game, the recent stats are decent and suggest that he might be able to ride the wave until the season is over.
