Player Outlook
Ke'Bryan Hayes had some up and down moments in 2023. Hayes took forever to get things going hitting .221 with just 2 homers through the end of May before waking up to hit .337 with 3 homers in June alone. An early back injury in July shelved him until mid-August and he returned with aplomb hitting .299 with 10 homers the rest of the way. His 15 homers in 2023 were just three fewer than he hit from 2020-2022, but his 10 steals was half of what he did the previous season at a time when most guys saw their totals jump a bit. He made positive gains in elevating the ball more frequently while not sacrificing his ability to make contact as he lowered his strikeout rate for a fourth consecutive season. Hayes has the tools to be a 20-20 player in 2024 if he can continue his growth from the late summer and get back to running. Either way, he feels prime for the breakout season many have wanted from him each of the past two seasons.

Fantasy News

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Not starting Saturday

    Hayes isn't in the Pirates' lineup for Saturday's game against the Orioles, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports. Hayes will get his first breather of the year after going 11-for-34 through Pittsburgh's first eight games. Jared Triolo will fill in at the hot corner while Hayes rests, allowing Alika Williams to start at second base and bat ninth.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Four consecutive multi-hit games

    Hayes went 2-for-5 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored Sunday against the Marlins. Hayes has hit third in all four of Pittsburgh's games and has tallied two hits in each contest. While he hasn't homered, he has a pair of doubles as well as four RBI and four runs scored. Hayes has also shown impressive plate discipline, striking out just twice while walking four times across 23 plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: On base three times Friday

    Hayes went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, two runs scored and an RBI in Friday's 7-2 win over the Marlins. The third baseman had an uncharacteristically rough night in the field, committing two errors, but Hayes made up for it with his bat. He's 4-for-7 to begin the season with two doubles and three walks, and if the improved launch angle he flashed in the second half of 2023 proves to be a permanent adjustment, Hayes has the athletic talent to deliver a 20-20 campaign or better.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Showing power early in spring

    Hayes has hit two home runs and a double across his first 14 Grapefruit League at-bats. Hayes is locked into every day playing at third base thanks to his tremendous defense, but his fantasy value will turn on his ability to hit for power and swipe bases. He took a step forward in the former category in 2023, improving his average launch angle to 13.2 degrees, which resulted in a career-best .182 ISO. He's seemingly carried that approach over into his early at-bats this spring and could be in for a solid regular season while occupying a key position in the Pittsburgh lineup.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Hayes is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Marlins. Hayes went 2-for-5 with two doubles and a run in Saturday's loss to Miami, which will end up being his final start of the year. The 26-year-old took a step forward at the plate in 2023 with 15 homers and a .273/.310/.455 slash line in 124 games.

    Hayes is not in the lineup for Thursday's game at Philadelphia.

    Hayes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 7-5 win over Cincinnati. Hayes went yard off Reds left-hander Andrew Abbott in the top of the fourth inning before adding a single in the top of the seventh.

He's produced one home run, five RBI and a stolen base in that span.

With his three-hit effort Wednesday, he now has a career-high 126 hits for the season.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Supplies only offense in rout

    Hayes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 14-1 loss to the Cubs. The third baseman spoiled Chicago's shutout bid by taking Javier Assad deep in the third inning. Hayes is wrapping up a big second-half breakout, and since coming off the IL in early August, he's slashing .309/.349/.562 through 40 games with nine of his 14 homers on the season -- a power pace supported by his 93rd percentile average exit velocity, 89th percentile hard-hit rate and career-best 13.1 degree launch angle and 39 percent flyball rate in 2023.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Steals 10th bag

    Hayes went 2-for-3 with a stolen base, an intentional walk and one RBI in Tuesday's victory over the Nationals. Hayes singled twice, stole a base, drew an intentional walk and contributed a sacrifice fly to extend Pittsburgh's lead to 5-1 in the seventh inning. In 35 games since returning from a back injury Aug. 2, the 26-year-old has slashed .298/.344/.553 with eight doubles, two triples, eight home runs, 24 RBI and 20 runs. However, the theft was just Hayes' 10th this season and first since July 6 after last year's 20-steal campaign.

The third baseman's lone extra-base knock was a double that plated a run in the third frame.

He's batting .372 (29-for-78) with five homers, six doubles, one triple, 17 RBI and 12 runs over that span.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Gets breather Tuesday

    Hayes is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Cardinals. This appears to be a scheduled day of rest for Hayes, who went 1-for-5 with a double in Monday's series against St. Louis.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Not starting nightcap

    Hayes isn't in the Pirates' lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Reds, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Mashes sixth homer

    Hayes went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double and a three-run home run in Tuesday's 8-6 loss to Atlanta. Both extra-base hits came off Yonny Chirinos, including Hayes' first-inning homer that staked the Pirates to an early 3-1 lead. The third baseman had gone just 1-for-15 with six strikeouts in his prior four games after returning from lower back discomfort, but he looked 100 percent healthy Tuesday and had posted a .337/337/.518 slash line over 21 games in June with three of his six homers on the year, plus 13 RBI, before his back trouble cropped up. If he is fully recovered, Hayes might be ready to pick up where he left off.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Held out Monday

    Hayes is not in the lineup for Monday's game against Atlanta. Hayes went 0-for-8 with four strikeouts over the last two days and is just a few days removed from a multi-week stint on the injured list, so he will get a breather Monday. Jared Triolo will man the hot corner in place of Hayes.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: On bench Friday

    Hayes is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Brewers, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Jared Triolo gets the start at third base, batting sixth against right-hander Colin Rea. There has been no word of a setback with Hayes' lower back nor has there been any mention of a new injury, so it seems the Pirates are just being cautious with Hayes and easing him back into regular action following his IL stint. Hayes has gone 1-for-7 with an RBI in his first two games back.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Activated from IL

    The Pirates reinstated Hayes (back) from the 10-day injured list Tuesday. Hayes won't be in the Pirates' lineup Tuesday against the Tigers, but he was deemed healthy enough to rejoin Bucs' active roster after going 1-for-9 with a run scored during his three-game rehab assignment in Triple-A. Hayes has been on the IL since July 7 and will most likely return to action Wednesday.
