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

Yastrzemski went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and an additional RBI in Saturday's win over the Dodgers.

Yastrzemski took Clayton Kershaw deep in the top of the third inning, his fourth long ball of the season. The outfielder has been one of San Francisco's most productive players in 2020, posting a .321 average with a team-leading 1.128 OPS. He is also riding a four-game hitting streak, going 5-for-14 during that stretch.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Gets first day off of 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

The Giants are facing off against a southpaw starter (Kyle Freeland) and are wrapping up their series in Colorado with a day game after a night game, so manager Gabe Kapler decided it was an opportune time to give the lefty-hitting Yastrzemski his first day off of the season. Yastrzemski has been a surprise fantasy star early on in the campaign, slashing .304/.458/.630 with three home runs, 12 runs, seven RBI and a stolen base through 13 starts. Mauricio Dubon will man center field in place of Yastrzemski.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Records steal in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a walk in Friday's 9-2 win over the Rangers.

Yastrzemski smacked a ground rule double in the fourth inning and drew a walk in the fifth, but he wasn't able to come around to score either time. The steal also came in the fifth, his first swiped bag of 2020. The 29-year-old outfielder has hit safely in four straight games (8-for-15) with two homers, three RBI and seven runs scored in that span. He can play all around the outfield, but he's been patrolling center field for much of this season.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Delivers walkoff hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 3-for-5 with two solo home runs in Wednesday's 7-6 win over the Padres.

Yastrzemski needed a bit of help in his first homer of the game, as the ball bounced before splashing into McCovey Cove. Such wasn't the case with his second long ball of the night -- he blasted a bomb straight into the Bay and lifted the Giants to the win, as that was the walkoff hit in the bottom of the ninth. Yastrzemski is enjoying a hot start to the season, producing multi-hit performances in four of his first six contests and hitting .409 with a 1.273 OPS in his first 26 plate appearances.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Working in center field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski could start in center field and bat leadoff for the Giants once operations resumes, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The 29-year-old appeared in 107 games as a rookie in 2019 with an .852 OPS and 21 home runs, and he's poised for a more significant role this season. Yastrzemski mostly played in the corner outfield last year, but he was seeing significant time in center field during spring training and could split regular-season action there with Mauricio Dubon.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: On bench against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski is not in the lineup Saturday against lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Dodgers.

With another lefty (Rich Hill) scheduled to start Sunday, it's possible Yastrzemski has already made his final start of the season. Jaylin Davis gets the start in right field in his absence.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Homers, doubles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, another RBI and another run scored in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

Yastrzemski launched a 429-foot solo homer off Jesus Tinoco in the fourth inning to give the Giants a 2-1 lead that would last the rest of the way. The long ball was the 21st of the season for the 29-year-old outfielder, who has enjoyed a solid September at the plate. Since Sept. 1, Yastrzemski's batting average has steadily risen from .265 to .274.

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

Yastrzemski is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Braves, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Yastrzemski has been shielded pretty heavily from lefties this season (13 starts), and that will continue against Max Fried. Jaylin Davis will take over in right field as Mauricio Dubon leads off.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Gets no help in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 3-for-4 with a double in Friday's 6-0 loss to Atlanta.

The 29-year-old did his job at the top of the order, but the rest of the Giants' lineup only managed one other hit. Yastrzemski is doing his Hall of Fame granddad proud in September, slashing .302/.380/.460 with two homers, a steal, five RBI and 11 runs.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Sentimental 20th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 2-for-7 with a double and his 20th home run of the season in Tuesday's extra-innings win over the Red Sox.

Yastrzemski -- grandson of Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski -- made his first ever start at Fenway Park, the venue in which his grandfather called home over his illustrious 23-year career. The 29-year-old rookie was showered with cheers despite donning the road team's uniform, and he responded by reaching the 20-homer plateau in just his 97th game of the season. Yastrzemski did appear to tweak something when he hit a ground-rule double in the 14th inning, but the outfielder was able to stay in the contest and even record another at-bat before his club finally put the Red Sox away in the 15th frame, Hank Schulman of The San Francisco Chronicle reports. Check back to make sure that his injury didn't worsen overnight prior to Wednesday's tilt.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski (back) returned to the lineup Wednesday, leading off and going 1-for-4 in a 6-3 loss to the Pirates.

Yastrzemski's absence from Tuesday's lineup card was initially thought to be a routine day off, but manager Bruce Bochy revealed prior to Wednesday's contest that the outfielder was dealing with lower-back soreness, according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle. The good news is that the 28-year-old was healthy enough to return to action and remain in the contest for all nine frames. The back injury doesn't sound like it'll be an issue for Yastrzemski as we enter the final stretch of the regular season.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: On bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Pirates.

Yastrzemski owns a strong .313/.421/.563 slash line over his last 11 games. Austin Slater will get the start in left field Tuesday.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Fills role of leadoff hitter well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 0-for-2 with two walks, a stolen base and a pair of runs scored in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Pirates.

Yastrzemski -- the owner of a .328 on-base percentage -- doesn't seem like the ideal leadoff hitter, but the outfielder certainly filled that role to a T in this contest. The 28-year-old rookie has seen a boost in runs scored (55) since being moved to the top of the order, but his true fantasy value resides in his ability to hit for power (19 homers through 91 games).

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Day off Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski is not in the lineup Friday against the Dodgers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Big night from leadoff spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 2-for-5 with a walk, a double and a home run in Wednesday's 9-8 win over St. Louis.

Yastrzemski's surprising rookie season continues with his 19th long ball through 86 games. The 28-year-old has also settled into the leadoff role nicely, slashing .290/.343/.645 with six homers over 14 games since being placed atop the order. With more than half a season of success under his belt, Yaz has done enough to gain the trust of fantasy owners in most formats.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski is not in the lineup for Sunday's game versus San Diego, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Cranks 18th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yastrzemski went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and three runs scored in Friday's 8-3 win over the Padres.

Yastrzemski first scored in the opening frame on a two-run homer by Brandon Belt before adding a solo shot of his own in the fifth inning. Yastrzemski's third run of the night came on a seventh-inning single by Evan Longoria. The 29-year-old had been held hitless in his last 20 at-bats before Friday's contest, battling a hand injury in that span. He is hitting .267/.321/.534 with 18 homers, 48 RBI and 50 runs scored in 81 games.
