29-Year-Old OutfielderOF
San Francisco Giants
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Yastrzemski finally broke into the majors in 2019 after being traded from the Orioles to the Giants prior to the season. The outfielder got off to a slow start following his promotion in May, but he found his groove after the All-Star break and posted a 136 wRC+ over 70 second-half games. Yastrzemski's 21 homers -- which came in just 371 at-bats -- tied for most on the Giants, while his .852 OPS and 121 wRC+ led all players on the team with at least 200 plate appearances. Although Yastrzemski could stand to improve his approach (7.8 BB%, 26.0 K%), his strong batted-ball profile suggests his success is for the most part believable. Yastrzemski was shielded pretty heavily against lefties in his debut season, though he performed well enough in his limited opportunities (.943 OPS in 89 PA) to potentially earn more at-bats against southpaws in 2020. Either way, he should remain a fixture in the lineup. Read Past Outlooks

Records steal in win
OFSan Francisco Giants
July 31, 2020
Yastrzemski went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a walk in Friday's 9-2 win over the Rangers.
ANALYSIS
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.
