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 southpaws. Taveras' season was most frontloaded as he struggled after the break dealing with hand soreness and hit just .233 with four 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: Keeps rolling with three hits

    Taveras went 3-for-5 with one RBI in Sunday's 13-2 win over the Rays. Taveras has opened July by going 10-for-21 (.476) during a six-game hitting streak. While he's added just three RBI in that span, it's encouraging to see him make consistent contact after batting just .147 in June. The outfielder is up to a .238/.306/.345 slash line with five home runs, 21 RBI, 33 runs scored and 10 stolen bases across 85 contests this season.

  • Rangers' Leody Taveras: Extends hit streak to five games

    Taveras went 2-for-2 with a walk and a run scored in Saturday's 4-3 win over Tampa Bay. Taveras was on base when Marcus Semien belted a two-run, game-deciding home run in the bottom of the seventh inning. Taveras had earlier singled to extend a hit streak to five games (7-for-16) and has hit safely in his last eight starts (11-for-26). Following a modest breakout season in 2023, he has mostly disappointed in 2024 (.232 average, .643 OPS), although Taveras' speed (10 steals, four consecutive MLB seasons with double-digit thefts) holds fantasy relevance.

After enduring a 2-for-45 (.044) stretch over 14 games, Taveras has hit safely in seven of the subsequent 10 contests, going 9-for-29 (.310) with three steals, a home run, five RBI and an additional three runs scored.

  • Rangers' Leody Taveras: Nabs sixth steal

    Taveras went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Dodgers. Taveras' bat went cold over the last week -- he entered Wednesday 0-for-23 over his last seven contests. The outfielder hit .275 over 11 games prior to his slump, but he's posted just five multi-hit efforts since the start of May. For the season, he's at a .220/.289/.335 slash line with four home runs, six steals, 13 RBI and 26 runs scored over 240 plate appearances. Taveras is still seeing steady playing time in center field, though his poor hitting has kept him at the bottom of the order.

  • Rangers' Leody Taveras: Bops first homer

Taveras bopped his first home run of the season, a two-run shot as part of the Rangers' three-run eighth inning that put the game out of reach. He's been a streaky hitter since emerging as the everyday center fielder, but Taveras hasn't done much streaking yet in 2024. He's batting .226 with a .613 OPS, and Tuesday's RBI were his first in 10 games and just his third and fourth of the season.
