Player Outlook
Mike Yastrzemski posted a career-low .697 OPS in 2022, and he rebounded last season with a .233/.330/.445 slash line in 106 games as he had two stints on the injured list with hamstring issues. The veteran outfielder had a 12 percent walk rate and totaled 15 homers, 43 RBI and 54 runs in 2023, which are relative improvements on figures from the previous year (17, 57 and 73, respectively) given he played in 42 fewer games. The lefty-hitting Yastrzemski had severe splits with a 126 wRC+ versus right-handed pitching and a 62 wRC+ against lefties, so a strong-side platoon role likely awaits in 2024. His fantasy ceiling will be capped in that role given the more limited plate appearances, though he can still provide some value as long as you can stomach his .223 average over the past three years.

  • Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Three extra-base hits in win

    Yastrzemski went 3-for-3 with a triple, two doubles and a walk in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Twins. Yastrzemski's triple was the decisive play, as it turned into a Little League home run when he scored on a throwing error by Brooks Lee. Neither power nor speed have been notable for Yastrzemski this year, though this was his third multi-hit effort in his last four games. The outfielder is slashing .241/.316/.436 with eight home runs, 31 RBI, 29 runs scored, nine doubles, five triples and one stolen base across 78 contests.

  • Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Notches first steal

    Yastrzemski went 1-for-5 with a walk and a stolen base in Wednesday's 9-3 win over the Diamondbacks. Yastrzemski picked up his first steal of the season in this contest. He's spent much of the year in a strong-side platoon role in right field, but the emergence of Heliot Ramos has pushed Yastrzemski over to sharing center field with Austin Slater. Yastrzemski is slashing a poor .214/.282/.384 with six home runs, 24 RBI and 19 runs scored through 175 plate appearances, though he should be able to maintain his platoon role as long as his bat doesn't go too cold. If Yastrzemski struggles, the Giants could eventually opt to give Luis Matos another look in the majors. Matos was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday to make room for Slater's return from a concussion.

In 42 plate appearances since May 21, Yastrzemski is slashing just .154/.214/.410, though he does have 10 RBI on just six hits over that span and hasn't struck out in a game since May 28.
