Giants' Mike Tauchman: Slugs grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 1-for-4 with a grand slam Tuesday against the Rangers.

Tauchman flipped the outcome of the game with one swing of the bat in the eighth inning, ripping his third home run of the season to put the Giants up for good. It was his first homer since May 15, though his playing time should be steadier given the current injury to Mike Yastrzemski (thumb). Even so, Tauchman has done little with his opportunities to this point in the season by hitting just .190/.310/.298 across 143 plate appearances.

Giants' Mike Tauchman: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman returned to the lineup Sunday but went 0-for-2 with a walk in the win over the Dodgers. Austin Slater will start in center field and bat eighth.

Giants' Mike Tauchman: Stuck on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman will sit for the third straight game Saturday against the Dodgers, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

Tauchman will remain out of the lineup with lefty Julio Urias on the mound for the Dodgers. He was able to make a big impact off the bench Friday, robbing a potential Albert Pujols home run to send the game to extra innings, where the Giants would eventually emerge victorious.

Giants' Mike Tauchman: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman isn't in the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Tauchman will be out of the lineup for the third time in the last four games. Steven Duggar will take over in center field and bat eighth.

Giants' Mike Tauchman: Out of lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman isn't starting Thursday's game against the Dodgers, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

Tauchman will retreat to the bench for the second time in the last three games. Austin Slater will start in center field and lead off.

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

Tauchman is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Tauchman has just four hits and one RBI in his last 21 at-bats, continuing what's been a tough month offensively after the late-April trade that made him the Giants' starting center fielder. Steven Duggar gets the start in center field Tuesday.

Giants' Mike Tauchman: Reaches base three times in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 1-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored in Sunday's 11-5 loss to the Dodgers.

Tauchman struck out in his first at-bat but reached in all three of his other plate appearances while scoring twice. The 30-year-old is slashing .211/.333/.329 with two home runs, eight RBI, 14 runs scored and a 14:25 BB:K over his first 22 games with the Giants. He's going to keep splitting time in the outfield with Steven Duggar and Austin Slater if his hitting struggles continue.

Giants' Mike Tauchman: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Reds.

Tauchman went 2-for-11 with a run, an RBI, three walks and six strikeouts in his last three games. Steven Duggar will take over in center field and bat seventh.

Giants' Mike Tauchman: Steals base, scores twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 0-for-3 with two walks, a stolen base and two runs scored in Sunday's 4-1 win over Pittsburgh.

The outfielder stole second and scored on an Alex Dickerson fielder's choice in the first inning. In the ninth, Tauchman got aboard with a walk and scored on Mike Yastrzemski's two-run home run. Through 27 games between the Yankees and the Giants, Tauchman has a .208/.305/.347 slash line with two home runs, seven RBI, 12 runs scored and three stolen bases. If he doesn't improve at the plate, the 30-year-old could lose playing time to Steven Duggar or Austin Slater now that San Francisco's outfield is at full health.

Giants' Mike Tauchman: Swats second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 1-for-2 with two walks and a two-run home run in Saturday's 8-6 loss to the Pirates.

His sixth-inning blast off Kyle Keller capped the scoring for the Giants, giving the team a 6-2 lead the bullpen couldn't hold. Tauchman has yet to manage a multi-hit performance in May, slashing .170/.278/.340 through 13 games with both his homers on the year, and with Alex Dickerson (shoulder) about to return from the IL, he may no longer be guaranteed a regular spot in the lineup.

Giants' Mike Tauchman: Draws three walks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 0-for-1 with three walks and a run scored in Tuesday's 4-2 win over Texas. He was also caught stealing once.

Tauchman has often hit leadoff since the April trade that sent him from the Yankees to the Giants. The outfielder is slashing .233/.313/.372 so far in his new digs. He's produced one home run, five RBI, two stolen bases and eight runs scored across 64 plate appearances overall.

Giants' Mike Tauchman: Takes over leadoff role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman will start in center field and bat leadoff in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

With the Giants placing Tommy La Stella (hamstring) on the injured list earlier in the day, Tauchman will get the first opportunity to step in as the team's new table setter against right-handed pitching. Since coming over from the Yankees in an April 27 trade, Tauchman has needed little time to cement himself as a regular in the lineup. He'll be picking up his fifth straight start Tuesday after going 5-for-16 with a home run, a double and five RBI in his first four games with San Francisco.

Giants' Mike Tauchman: Plates four in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer and a walk but had four total RBI in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Padres.

Tauchman launched his first home run in a Giants uniform when he pulled a cutter over the wall in right to give his team a 4-1 lead. The 30-year-old had just three hits and did not have an RBI while scoring just one run in 11 games for the Yankees before being shipped off to San Francisco. He's found life in his new threads, as he's notched five hits and five RBI in his first four games as a member of the Giants. Tauchman should continue to see regular playing time while Mike Yastrzemski (oblique) remains on the 10-day injured list.

Giants' Mike Tauchman: Stars in San Francisco debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's victory over Colorado.

Tauchman made a strong impression in his first game with the Giants, matching his hit total from 14 at-bats with the Yankees prior to the trade. He started in center field and could see considerable time there while Mike Yastrzemski recovers from an oblique injury. Tauchman turned some heads with New York in 2019 before fading last season, so he'll be looking to establish himself for a Giants team that is surprisingly tied for the best record in the National League.

Giants' Mike Tauchman: Batting seventh in Giants debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman is starting in center field and batting seventh Wednesday against the Rockies, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

With righty German Marquez on the hill for Colorado, it stands to reason that Tauchman would be in the lineup for his Giants debut after getting traded from New York on Tuesday. Austin Slater will start against almost every lefty, but there could still be room for Tauchman against some same-handed pitching if he earns the playing time.

Giants' Mike Tauchman: Shipped to San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman was traded to the Giants on Tuesday in exchange for Wandy Peralta, Jack Curry of YES Network reports.

Tauchman has been the subject of trade rumors for years, given how crowded the Yankees' outfield always seems to be. He should finally get a fair shake at playing time with his new club, although the Giants like utilizing platoons, so he may sit against most lefties, at least early on.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Still working out at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman has continued practicing at first base during the regular season, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Tauchman took reps at the position during spring training, and there seems to be some interest -- at least on his part -- in seeing time at first base this season. "I can play four positions (as a left-handed thrower), so why not play all four?" he stated recently. The 30-year-old might benefit with more at-bats if the Yankees see him as an option at first, especially while Luke Voit (knee) remains out. As it stands, Tauchman has gotten only one at-bat thus far this season, though he has swiped two bags as a pinch runner.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Skipper downplays injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone described Tauchman's (shin) removal from Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies as precautionary, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Tauchman exited the contest in the bottom of the third after having previously fouled a ball of his shin/calf area during his at-bat in the top of of the second. Boone said that Tauchman won't be sent in for any further tests, so the Yankees are seemingly hopeful that the outfielder will be good to go for Opening Day simply by addressing his leg with ice treatment over the next few days.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Suffers apparent ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman was removed in the third inning of Sunday's Grapefruit League game with an ankle injury, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Ryan LaMarre subbed into the contest for Tauchman, who initially hurt his ankle when he fouled a ball off himself in his second-inning at-bat, which culminated in a strikeout. Tauchman was able to stay in the game and played the outfield for the subsequent half inning, but he appeared to be in obvious pain. The 30-year-old had already been informed that he would be included on the Yankees' Opening Day roster as a reserve outfielder, but the injury -- if serious -- could change those plans.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman will begin the regular season in the majors, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Tauchman has slashed .259/.394/.593 with three home runs, four RBI and two stolen bases in 11 spring games this year and was rewarded with a spot on the Opening Day roster. He'll serve as a depth option in the outfield and could also see some playing time at first base behind Jay Bruce since Luke Voit (knee) is out to begin the regular season.
