Player Outlook
Ke'Bryan Hayes had some up and down moments in 2023. Hayes took forever to get things going hitting .221 with just 2 homers through the end of May before waking up to hit .337 with 3 homers in June alone. An early back injury in July shelved him until mid-August and he returned with aplomb hitting .299 with 10 homers the rest of the way. His 15 homers in 2023 were just three fewer than he hit from 2020-2022, but his 10 steals was half of what he did the previous season at a time when most guys saw their totals jump a bit. He made positive gains in elevating the ball more frequently while not sacrificing his ability to make contact as he lowered his strikeout rate for a fourth consecutive season. Hayes has the tools to be a 20-20 player in 2024 if he can continue his growth from the late summer and get back to running. Either way, he feels prime for the breakout season many have wanted from him each of the past two seasons.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Sitting out Monday

    Hayes is out of the lineup for Monday's contest versus the Mets. Hayes appears to be getting a routine maintenance day after he started in each of the previous six games. Jared Triolo will fill in for Hayes at third base.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Swipes eighth bag

    Hayes went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Sunday's loss to the Mets. Hayes reached base in three of his four at-bats Sunday, as he also reached on an error in addition to a pair of singles. Hayes now has a multi-hit game in four of his last eight contests, with three steals in that span. The power numbers continue to plague Hayes though, as he's slugging a poor .299 for the season. The 27-year-old has 11 extra-base hits through 270 plate appearances this season and will need to pick those numbers up in order to have a larger fantasy impact.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Checking out of starting nine

    Hayes is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta. Jared Triolo will step in at third base while Hayes takes a seat for the series finale in Atlanta. Hayes had started in each of Pittsburgh's last three games, going 4-for-12 with a double, a walk, a stolen base, an RBI and a run.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Getting day off Tuesday

    Hayes is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds. Hayes had made seven consecutive starts -- going 3-for-25 (.120) at the plate with three RBI during that stretch -- but will give way to Jared Triolo at third base Tuesday.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Tallies third homer

    Hayes went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Reds. Hayes tallied the Pirates' only run with a solo home run in the seventh inning -- his third of the season. The performance also extended his hitting streak to a modest five games, though he has no multi-hit performances in that span to go along with only two RBI and two runs scored. Hayes has a disappointing .084 ISO across 215 plate appearances this season.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Riding pine Sunday

    Hayes is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies. Hayes will get some rest for the series finale in Colorado after he had started in each of the Pirates' last five games while going 3-for-21 with a stolen base and a run scored. Jared Triolo will fill in for Hayes at the hot corner.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Hayes is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins, Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Hayes had started nine of 10 games since he returned from his back injury in late May, with the lone absence coming in a doubleheader. The 27-year-old has a .745 OPS in 33 at-bats since coming back from the injury, and Sunday's rest day will give him two straight days to take it easy since the Pirates have a team day off Monday. Jared Triolo will man the hot corner in the series finale versus Minnesota.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Swipes fourth bag

    Hayes went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Twins. The third baseman is up to four steals on the season, and all of them have come in his last eight games. Hayes is also batting .323 (10-for-31) over that stretch with a homer, four RBI and six runs, and he seems fully recovered from the back issues that cost him most of May and which may have contributed to his .239/.317/.318 slash line in April.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Swipes first bag of 2024

    Hayes went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Friday's 5-3 extra-innings loss to the Blue Jays. The steal was his first of the year, after he'd swiped 30 over the prior two seasons combined. Hayes missed most of May with back trouble, which could help explain his lack of activity on the basepaths, and Friday's single was his first hit of any kind since May 5. The third baseman has a disappointing .237/.318/.311 slash line through 36 games with one homer and 12 RBI, but if he can stay healthy he's capable of heating up over the summer.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Resting for second game of twin bill

    Hayes is out of the lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Tigers. After being activated from the injured list Tuesday, Hayes had to wait a day to make his return to the lineup due to a rainout creating a doubleheader Wednesday. He started at third base and played all eight innings in the field in the Pirates' 8-0 loss in the first game of the day, going 0-for-2 with a walk. Hayes should settle back into an everyday role at the hot corner, but the Pirates won't have him play two full games in his first day back in the lineup. Jared Triolo will fill in for him at third base in the second game of the day.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Activated from injured list

    The Pirates activated Hayes (back) from the 10-day injured list Tuesday. Hayes has been sidelined since early May with a back injury but will skip a rehab assignment and go directly back on the Pirates' active roster. The third baseman is slashing a disappointing .240/.322/.318 with just one home run and zero stolen bases this season.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Nearing next steps

    Hayes (back) has been hitting on the field and will run the bases Sunday, MLB.com reports. Assuming he feels well after Sunday's activity, Hayes will meet with manager Derek Shelton to determine his next steps. That would presumably either be activation from the injured list or a rebab assignment.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: To IL with back issue

    Hayes was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a back issue, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports. Hayes hasn't played since Tuesday amid a 3-for-30 slump, and perhaps the back issue is part of the reason he's only hit one home run in 35 games. Alika Williams is getting the call from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Sitting Wednesday amid slump

    Hayes is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels. Hayes will get a breather for the series finale after he had started in each of the Pirates' last 11 games. The 27-year-old went 8-for-42 over that stretch, bringing his batting average down to a career-worst .240 for the season. Jared Triolo will fill in for Hayes at the hot corner Wednesday.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Slugs first homer

    Hayes went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Giants. Hayes jumped on a hanging sweeper from Tyler Rogers in the top of the 10th and sent it into the stands for his first home run of the season, going back-to-back with Bryan Reynolds as the Pirates took care of the Giants in extra innings. The third baseman has now registered two hits in back-to-back games and in three of his last six overall, batting .333 (8-for-24) over that stretch.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Not in Thursday's lineup

    Hayes is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Brewers, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports. Hayes looks to be getting some routine maintenance for a day game after a night game. With Hayes on the bench, the Pirates will shift Jared Triolo over to third base Thursday and give Alika Williams a start at second base.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Back in action Friday

    Hayes (back) is starting at third base and batting third Friday against the Red Sox. The 27-year-old sat out the past two games with lower-back tightness but is ready to rejoin Pittsburgh's starting nine after Thursday's scheduled off day. Hayes struggled offensively in the five games preceding the absence, going 3-for-17 with two doubles, five walks and six strikeouts.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Held out with back tightness

    Hayes (back) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets. Hayes was a late scratch ahead of Tuesday's 3-1 loss due to lower-back tightness, so it's not a surprise he's not ready to play in the series finale Wednesday. He missed about a month of action last season with the same injury and still has to manage back issues on occasion. At this point, he's considered day-to-day. Jared Triolo will start at third base Wednesday in place of Hayes.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: On base three times Friday

    Hayes went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, two runs scored and an RBI in Friday's 7-2 win over the Marlins. The third baseman had an uncharacteristically rough night in the field, committing two errors, but Hayes made up for it with his bat. He's 4-for-7 to begin the season with two doubles and three walks, and if the improved launch angle he flashed in the second half of 2023 proves to be a permanent adjustment, Hayes has the athletic talent to deliver a 20-20 campaign or better.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Showing power early in spring

    Hayes has hit two home runs and a double across his first 14 Grapefruit League at-bats. Hayes is locked into every day playing at third base thanks to his tremendous defense, but his fantasy value will turn on his ability to hit for power and swipe bases. He took a step forward in the former category in 2023, improving his average launch angle to 13.2 degrees, which resulted in a career-best .182 ISO. He's seemingly carried that approach over into his early at-bats this spring and could be in for a solid regular season while occupying a key position in the Pittsburgh lineup.
