Player Outlook
Leody Taveras has been on the fantasy periphery for awhile, but 2023 was the first time we have seen the production begin to match the hype. The 25-year old outfielder finished the season with a palindromic 14 homers, 67 runs, 67 RBIs, and 14 steals over 143 games. The switch hitter continued to do most of his damage from the left side hitting 12 of those 14 homers off righties and hitting 34 points better against them than southpays. Taveras's season was most frontloaded as he struggled after the break dealing with hand soreness and hit just .233 with 4 homers after the break. His defense and baserunning keep him in the lineup nearly everyday as long as his body holds up, but his spot in the lineup is what ultimately limits his upside as he should once again hit in the lower third of the lineup. His 2023 is very repeatable and a 20-20 season is possible should Bochy decide to leverage the running game more often in 2024.

  • Rangers' Leody Taveras: Crushes home run in victory

    Taveras went 2-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Astros in Game 1 of the ALCS.
