Player Outlook
Mike Yastrzemski posted a career-low .697 OPS in 2022, and he rebounded last season with a .233/.330/.445 slash line in 106 games as he had two stints on the injured list with hamstring issues. The veteran outfielder had a 12 percent walk rate and totaled 15 homers, 43 RBI and 54 runs in 2023, which are relative improvements on figures from the previous year (17, 57 and 73, respectively) given he played in 42 fewer games. The lefty-hitting Yastrzemski had severe splits with a 126 wRC+ versus right-handed pitching and a 62 wRC+ against lefties, so a strong-side platoon role likely awaits in 2024. His fantasy ceiling will be capped in that role given the more limited plate appearances, though he can still provide some value as long as you can stomach his .223 average over the past three years.

  • Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Launches fourth homer

    Yastrzemski went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Wednesday's win over the Dodgers. Yastrzemski hopped on a four-seamer from Elieser Hernandez in the bottom of the third and sent it into the stands to put the Giants up 2-0 and later added a single to give the outfielder his second consecutive multi-hit game. It marked Yastrzemski's fourth home run of the campaign and his second in the month of May, during which he's batting just .217. It also marked the first time this season in which he's strung together multiple hits in back-to-back contests.

  • Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Goes deep in victory

    Yastrzemski went 1-for-2 with a solo home run Thursday in a 3-1 win over the Red Sox. Yastrzemski gave the Giants their first run with a third-inning solo shot. It was his third homer of the campaign, two of which have come over his past four contests. Yastrzemski has hit almost exclusively against right-handed hurlers this season -- he's logged just six at-bats against southpaws and was lifted for a pinch hitter against a lefty in the seventh inning Thursday despite his earlier long ball.

His two hitless contests in that span were games during which he entered off the bench. The outfielder remains in a strong-side platoon role this year. He's slashing .236/.311/.345 with two homers, 10 RBI, seven runs scored and no stolen bases over 62 plate appearances while sharing right field with platoon partner Austin Slater.

  • Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: DHing in spring debut

    Yastrzemski (shoulder) will bat third while serving as the Giants' designated hitter in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Athletics. Yastrzemski has been limited in the early part of Giants camp while he recovers from a left shoulder impingement, but manager Bob Melvin has said that he doesn't expect the health concern to affect Yastrzemski's readiness for Opening Day. The 33-year-old still looks like he'll require some additional time to finish up his throwing program, however, so he could draw a few starts at DH prior to playing the field. According to Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com, Yastrzemski is scheduled to throw from 110 to 120 feet this week before the Giants provide another update regarding when he might be ready to man the outfield.

  • Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Nursing shoulder impingement

    Yastrzemski could be limited for the first 7-to-10 days of Giants camp because of a left shoulder impingement, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Yastrzemski is still able to play catch from 90 feet and isn't limited from a hitting perspective, so the injury doesn't seem like something for his fantasy managers to be overly concerned about. The 33-year-old is currently projected to serve as San Francisco's right fielder against right-handed pitching.
