Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Takes seat Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

Yastrzemski will head to the bench for the first time since July 5, allowing LaMonte Wade to pick up a start in right field. The 30-year-old Yaz has gone 3-for-25 over the past six games to drop his season average to .229, but all three of those hits have gone for extra bases (two home runs, one triple).

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Launches another homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two strikeouts in a 4-2 win against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Yastrzemski gave San Francisco an early lead with his first-inning blast off Los Angeles starter Julio Urias, though he was held at bay in his other three at-bats. The late bloomer has now connected on four long balls in his last six games to bring his season total to 16. However, his .236/.332/.493 slash line is a step back from last season's breakout marks.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Connects on 15th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday.

The right fielder drilled a 398-foot shot with a runner aboard in the fifth inning to give the Giants what looked to be a sturdy five-run lead. The homer was Yastrzemski's 15th of the campaign, and he is on pace to easily surpass his current career high of 21 long balls set in 2019. Though he is batting only .236 this season, Yastrzemski has complemented the homer total with 20 doubles, 47 runs and 40 RBI.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Steals base in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 0-for-5 with a stolen base in Monday's 7-2 win over the Dodgers.

Yastrzemski's only time reaching base was due to a fielder's choice and he ended up swiping second base before the inning concluded. The 30-year-old has put up a pair of two-hit performances as well as a pair of goose eggs at the plate in four games since the All-Star break. For the year, he's slashing .235/.334/.478 with 14 homers, 38 RBI, 46 runs scored and a 34:67 BB:K over 314 plate appearances. He's on pace for his lowest batting average since entering the big leagues in 2019, largely in part because of his .260 BABIP.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs, a walk and four RBI in Friday's 7-2 win over St. Louis.

Yastrzemski accounted for the first run of the game with a fourth-inning solo homer to right field. He broke things open for the Giants in the seventh, slugging a three-run shot that expanded their lead to six runs. Through 11 games in July, he is slashing .325/.404/.650 with four homers and 11 runs batted in.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Racks up three hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 3-for-5 with an RBI and scored twice in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

The outfielder scored San Francisco's first run of the game in the third inning. Later, he brought the Giants within two via a run-scoring single in the eighth, and he subsequently came around to score the team's final run. Yastrzemski's three-hit effort was his first this season. Despite the productive performance, he is still slashing a disappointing .231/.331/.475 overall.

Yastrzemski opened the scoring with his two-run homer off Arizona starter Jake Faria in the third and later walked and scored the game-tying run in the eighth. He's gone 4-for-12 with two home runs in the first three games of the weekend series with Arizona.

Yastrzemski opened the scoring with his first-inning home run and walked in the eighth for his first trips on base in nearly a week. Despite a low .224 average, Yastrzemski sports an above average .804 OPS thanks to 64 percent of his hits going for extra bases.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Back in action Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski (shin) is starting in right field and batting second Thursday against the Diamondbacks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Yastrzemski sat out Tuesday's game against the Dodgers after suffering a right shin bruise a day prior, but he'll rejoin the lineup following Wednesday's scheduled off day. The 30-year-old finished June 0-for-11 with five strikeouts over the past three contests, and he'll attempt to get back on track after posting a .958 OPS across his first 14 games of the month.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Expected back Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski (shin) is expected to rejoin the Giants lineup in Thursday's series opener in Arizona, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Yastrzemski sustained a bruised right shin in Monday's loss to the Dodgers that left him unavailable for Tuesday's series finale, but he looks like he'll be ready to play coming out of Wednesday's off day. The 30-year-old's expected return is welcome news after the Giants lost another outfielder (Mike Tauchman) to a knee injury in Tuesday's 3-1 loss.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Sitting out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski (shin) is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Yastrzemski suffered a bruised right shin when he fouled a pitch off himself Monday and will be sidelined for at least one game. The 30-year-old will also have Wednesday's scheduled off day to aid in his recovery before missing additional time, so it's not a major surprise to see the Giants expressing caution. Mike Tauchman will start in right field Tuesday in his place.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: X-rays on shin return negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski was diagnosed with a right shin contusion and is considered day-to-day after he exited Monday's 3-2 loss to the Dodgers in the seventh inning, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Yastrzemski was in pain after he fouled a ball off himself in the top of the seventh, but he was able to stay in the game and completed the at-bat by striking out swinging. The Giants pulled him from the contest in the next half inning, with Mike Tauchman stepping in for Yastrzemski in right field. Fortunately for Yastrzemski, X-rays conducted after the game cleared him of structural damage, but he won't be a lock to rejoin the lineup for Tuesday's series finale.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Lifted early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski was removed from Monday's game against the Dodgers after fouling a pitch off his right shin, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle repots.

Yastrzemski initially stayed in the game, but he was later removed in the seventh inning after it became obvious he was still in pain. He'll be considered day-to-day until more details become available.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Smacks 10th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 1-for-7 with a solo home run and two runs scored Wednesday against the Angels.

Yastrzemski accounted for the Giants' only run in the opening nine frames when he slugged his 10th home run of the season in the fifth inning. The performance continued his hot streak at the plate, as he now has four long balls in his last eight starts. In that same span, he's delivered 12 RBI and 11 runs scored. For the season, Yastrzemski is hitting .233/.333/.490 across 237 plate appearances.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Goes yard again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two total runs scored in Sunday's 11-2 win over Philadelphia.

In his last six games, Yastrzemski has gone 8-for-24 (.333) with three homers, 11 RBI and eight runs scored. It appears the outfielder may be breaking out of his season-long slump. The 30-year-old has a .232/.339/.479 slash line, nine homers, 26 RBI and 33 runs scored across 225 plate appearances overall.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Slugs eighth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Saturday's 13-6 loss to the Phillies.

He took Aaron Nola deep in the first inning, staking the Giants to a 2-1 lead, but San Francisco's offense simply couldn't keep pace. It's Yastrzemski's second long ball in nine games since returning from a thumb injury, a stretch during which he's batting .290 (9-for-31), but on the season the 30-year-old has a .233/.341/.481 slash line with eight homers and 24 RBI through 54 contests.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 2-for-5 with a grand slam in Tuesday's victory over the Diamondbacks.

Yastrzemski came to the plate with the bases loaded and the Giants down by three runs in the eighth inning Tuesday.

The round tripper was Yastrzemski's first since May 17, a span of 18 games.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Not starting nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski will be on the bench for the second half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Activated, starting Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski (thumb) was activated from the injured list Saturday. He will play in right field and bat second in the first game of a doubleheader versus Washington.

Yastrzemski spent the minimum 10 days on the injured list while dealing with a sprained thumb. He was appointed the 27th man for Saturday's doubleheader, but it's a given he'll remain on the roster going forward as a near-everyday option in right field.
