Player Outlook
Isiah Kiner-Falefa's time in New York finally came to an end after a two-year run which saw him lose his starting job while he also did everything but pitch and catch on the field. The disappointing thing for fantasy managers is that IKF was not able to take full advantage of the new stolen base market after a two-year run which saw him succeed in 42 of his 51 stolen base attempts. Power was never in the picture and living in the bottom of the lineup was always the plan, but even the Yankees could no longer tolerate the lack of production from Kiner-Falefa as he struggled to hit in 2023. The six percentage point jump in his strikeout rate was uncharacteristic for him and the impact of that is seen in his batting average. He lacks the power that fantasy managers want to see from a 3B/OF eligible player but we also expect IKF to pick up another position or two in-season. It would not surprise us if he has a bounceback season of sorts away from the pressures of The Bronx.

  • Blue Jays' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Drives in five runs

    Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-3 with a double and five RBI in Sunday's win over Oakland. He was also caught stealing. Kiner-Falefa knocked a two-run single in the second inning before capping off his day with a clutch bases-clearing double in the 10th to help secure the win. After an ugly 0-for-20 skid in the middle of May, he's gone 22-for-64 (.344) over his last 18 games. That hot streak has boosted his season slash line to .275/.319/.394 with 26 RBI and 13 extra-base hits through 209 plate appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Stays hot Wednesday

    Kiner-Falefa went 1-for-3 with a walk and two RBI in Wednesday's win over the White Sox. The 29-year-old utility player fueled the Blue Jays' offense in a 3-1 victory, singling home the game-winning run in the fourth inning and driving home an insurance run in the sixth. Kiner-Falefa has hit safely in eight straight games, batting an even .400 (12-for-30) over that stretch to boost his slash line on the season to .270/.320/.409 with four homers, three steals, 17 runs and 17 RBI in 54 contests. IKF's .729 OPS would be a career high if he can maintain that pace through the summer.

  • Blue Jays' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Swipes third bag

    Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, a run scored and a stolen base in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Tigers. Getting the start at second base and batting seventh, Kiner-Falefa was the only Blue Jay to record multiple hits on an afternoon when offense was at a premium. The 29-year-old utility player has seven hits in the last four games, but that comes on the heels of an 0-for-20 swoon. On the season, Kiner-Falefa is slashing .264/.305/.382 with three homers, three steals, 13 RBI and 14 runs in 50 contests.

  • Blue Jays' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Two extra-base hits in win

    Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-4 with a triple and a solo homer in Thursday's win over the Tigers. Kiner-Falefa jumped on the third pitch he saw from Jack Flaherty in the top of the third inning and launched it over the wall in left field to get the Blue Jays on the board. The utility infielder would add a triple in his next at-bat, giving him back-to-back games with two hits after previously riding an 0-for-20 skid. The home run was his third of the season, and two of those have come over his last 11 games.

  • Blue Jays' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: On base three times in win

    Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Rays. The 29-year-old utility player has started three of Toronto's first four games, but after two games at third base, Kiner-Falefa shifted to second base Sunday. He's hit eighth or ninth in all three contests, going 3-for-9, and Sunday's run has been his only counting-stat contribution so far. IKF's versatility has value in deeper fantasy formats and he'd stolen at least 14 bags in three straight seasons coming into 2024, but his overall offensive upside is limited.

  • Blue Jays' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Opening Day nod at third base

    Kiner-Falefa will start at third base and bat eighth in Thursday's season opener against the Rays. Blue Jays manager John Schneider never named his starters at third base or second base, but he's been telegraphing that it would be Kiner-Falefa and Cavan Biggio at those spots versus righties and, sure enough, that's how things are set up on Opening Day. Kiner-Falefa has a slick glove but has never posted even a .700 OPS in any of his six major-league seasons, so he's certainly an atypical starting third baseman.

  • Blue Jays' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Strong start to spring

    Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-3 with a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers. The 28-year-old signed a somewhat head-scratching two-year, $15 million contract with the Blue Jays in December, but the organization views him as a useful utility player who can help plug the hole at third base until a prospect like Orelvis Martinez is ready to step up. Kiner-Falefa got the start at shortstop in Thursday's contest however, and through six Grapefruit League games he'd seen only half his action at the hot corner while also playing a second contest at short and one at second base. Wherever he's been stationed on the diamond, he's been making good contact, going 5-for-12 (.417) with a steal and a 2:1 BB:K, although all five hits have been singles.

  • Blue Jays' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Lands $15 million deal from Toronto

    Kiner-Falefa signed a two-year, $15 million contract with the Blue Jays on Wednesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports. He can earn an additional $1 million in incentives. Kiner-Falefa has never even posted a .700 OPS in any of his six major-league seasons, but he nonetheless seemed to have a strong market this winter. The utility player would currently appear to be in line to see ample time at second and third base for Toronto but, of course, offers the ability to bounce around to a variety of positions.
