  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Caps rookie year with bang

    Pasquantino went 2-for-4 a solo home run in Wednesday's loss against the Guardians. The rookie capped off a solid start to his career with a two-hit effort, including a solo home run in the first inning. The homer, his 10th of the season, capped off a season-ending hot streak that saw Pasquantino hit .408 (29-for-71) with two home runs and a 6:11 K:BB over his final 19 games.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Records first steal

    Pasquantino went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Monday's 5-2 extra-inning win over the Guardians. Pasquantino's sixth-inning steal was the first of his big-league career. The rookie first baseman has a much stronger reputation as a slugger, but he picked up nine steals across 189 minor-league contests in the last two years. He's done well in the majors this year, posting a .288/.379/.436 slash line with nine home runs, 25 RBI and 23 runs scored in 70 contests, and he should have the inside track to be the Royals' starting first baseman in 2023.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Gets aboard four times

    Pasquantino went 3-for-4 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 7-5 loss to the Guardians. Over his last 14 games, Pasquantino has produced eight multi-hit efforts while going hitless only once. However, he hadn't driven in a run for five games prior to Sunday. The rookie first baseman's impressive surge of late has lifted his season slash line to .291/.381/.441 with nine home runs, 25 RBI, 23 runs scored and 10 doubles through 286 plate appearances. He'll look to keep up the hot hitting with three more games against Cleveland to end the campaign.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Pasquantino has been a favorite of mine since before the Royals even called him up, and quietly, he's been exactly who I thought he'd be over his past 31 games, batting .359 (38 for 106) with six homers and a 1.034 OPS. So why hasn't it gotten more attention? Because it was interrupted by an IL stint for a shoulder issue. Pasquantino has looked fine in 14 games since returning, batting .354 (17 for 48), but it took until Saturday for him to deliver his first home run during that stint. And we all know home runs are what attract the most attention in Fantasy. Consider it a gift he's still out there because this may be the week he finally blows up.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Sleeper hitters for Week 26 (Sept. 26-Oct. 5)

    I can't quit on Pasquantino, who's been doing an adequate job since returning from a shoulder issue but is still awaiting that big surge in production. The Royals' matchups are decent enough, with only two lefties on the schedule in nine games, and his contact remains both high quantity and high quality.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Snaps homer drought Saturday

    Pasquantino went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in a loss to the Mariners on Saturday. Pasquantino entered the contest with no long balls over his previous 19 games, though he had recorded a healthy .302/.400/.365 slash line during that stretch. The big first baseman snapped the homer drought in the first inning, belting a two-run shot to right field to put the Royals on the board. Pasquantino has 27 total homers between the minors (18) and majors (nine) this season after hitting 24 between High-A and Double-A last year.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Just when Pasquantino was beginning to live up to his enormous hitting potential, his shoulder began acting up, forcing him to the IL. He's been back for a little over a week now and is showing signs of breaking through again, going 5 for 9 with two doubles between Saturday and Sunday. The amount of contact (13.6 percent strikeout rate) and quality of contact (91.8 mph average exit velocity) both remain excellent by any standard, but particularly for a rookie. They suggest it's only a matter of time before he emerges as a middle-of-the-order threat. The first four pitchers he's facing this week -- Dylan Bundy, Bailey Ober, Josh Winder and Marco Gonzales -- are pretty suspect, which is enough to lure me in.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Knocks in three in win

    Pasquantino went 3-for-5 with three RBI in Saturday's 9-0 victory over the Red Sox. Pasquantino knocked in Bobby Witt on a fifth-inning double, then singled home MJ Melendez in both the sixth and eighth innings. The Italian Nightmare has extended his hit streak to three games, boosting his batting average from .253 to .261 in the process. He has a .346 OBP and a .422 SLG to round out his slash line.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Resting Sunday

    Pasquantino is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers. Pasquantino started back-to-back games after being activated from the injured list, but he will get a chance to take it easy Sunday. Salvador Perez will serve as the designated hitter with Pasquantino opening the game on the bench.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Reinstated from IL

    Pasquantino (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday. The 24-year-old was placed on the injured list in late August due to right shoulder discomfort and began his rehab assignment in Triple-A Omaha on Saturday. Pasquantino went 3-for-14 with three RBI in his four rehab games. Brent Rooker will be sent down to Omaha in a corresponding move to open a roster spot for Pasquantino.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Pasquantino has begun a rehab assignment at Triple-A, putting him within a couple days of a return, most likely. You may remember he was finally coming into his own when he suffered a shoulder injury in late August, having hit .362 with five homers and a 1.088 OPS in his past 17 games. During that stretch, he struck out just five times while walking eight times, exhibiting the same exceptional plate discipline that defined his time in the minors. Of course, it's not like his strikeouts were out of control before then. Between the amount of contact and quality of contact (92.2 mph average exit velocity), he was bound to get hot, and he still has more ground to make up judging by his .280 xBA and .483 xSLG.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Hits on field Friday

    Pasqualino (shoulder) hit on the field ahead of Friday's game against the Tigers, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports. Pasquantino has been on the injured list since Aug. 23 due to right shoulder discomfort, but manager Mike Matheny said Friday that the 24-year-old is getting closer to a return. It's not yet clear whether Pasquantino will require a rehab assignment prior to rejoining the Royals.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Goes on IL with shoulder discomfort

    Kansas City placed Pasquantino on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with right shoulder discomfort. The Royals won't mess around with this injury to one of their best young players. As it is still being labeled as discomfort, this could be a short-term absence. He is eligible to return Sept. 2 in Detroit.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Managing right shoulder discomfort

    Pasquantino was removed from Monday's game against the White Sox due to right shoulder discomfort, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports. Pasquantino appeared to be in pain while swinging his bat in the bottom of the second inning Monday, and he was replaced defensively in the top of the third. The 24-year-old will be further evaluated before the Royals determine his status for the team's upcoming two-game series against the Diamondbacks.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Suffers arm injury Monday

    Pasquantino was removed in the top of the third inning of Monday's game against the White Sox with an apparent right arm injury, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports. He went 0-for-1 with a walk and a run scored prior to departing. Pasquantino appeared to sustain the injury in question in the bottom of the second, when he looked to be in pain while swinging the bat and flying out to end the inning. Nick Pratto was summoned from the bench a half inning later to replace Pasquantino at first base. The 24-year-old can viewed as day-to-day until the Royals provide more specifics about his injury.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Sleeper hitters for Week 21 (Aug. 22-28)

    I'm hoping this is the last week I have to do this with Pasquantino. The way his August has gone, it should be evident to all by now that he's good enough to keep in your lineup regardless of matchups. Let's get that roster rate over 80 percent so I can stop writing about him.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Stays hot with homer

    Pasquantino went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Monday's 4-2 loss against the Twins. For the second game in a row, the rookie slugged a home run to bring his total on the season to eight. Pasquantino has been on a tear since the beginning of August, slashing .356/.388/.711 with a 10.2 percent strikeout rate after slashing .219/.322/,324 with a 15.7 percent strikeout rate up to this point. The recent surge is likely a product of him getting accustomed to the big leagues, and he should continue to contribute to fantasy lineups the rest of the way.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Slugs another homer

    Pasquantino went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Dodgers. Pasquantino factored in on three of the Royals' scoring plays as they avoided a sweep. His eighth-inning homer was his fourth in his last six games, and his seventh of the campaign. The first baseman has added 12 RBI, 16 runs scored and six doubles while slashing .260/.341/.440 through 170 plate appearances. He appears to have a near-everyday role between first base and designated hitter, and considering he slugged .574 through 242 games in the minors in his career, the power shouldn't come as much of a surprise.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Are you tired of reading about Pasquantino? Well, I'm tired of writing about him. Why don't you make it so I don't have to? As of now, he's still available in roughly one-third of CBS Sports leagues, which makes him the most under-rostered player in my eyes, especially now that he's begun to perform up to his expected stats. His 3-for-4 performance Sunday, which included a home run and double, makes him 16 for 45 (.356) so far in August with four home runs and four doubles. The plate discipline remains stellar, the exit velocities elite, and the way things are shaping up, the production is no longer theoretical. My hunch is the 24-year-old rookie becomes a must-start player moving forward, so now may be your last chance to scoop him up.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Sleeper hitters for Week 20 (Aug. 15-21)

    There's nothing special about the Royals' matchups this week, but I don't care. Over this past week, Pasquantino's production has begun to live up to the data, and there's not a single hitter rostered in less than 80 percent of CBS Sports leagues who I trust more moving forward.
