30-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

Homers in return
OFSan Francisco Giants
September 26, 2020
Yastrzemski went 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in a 5-4 win over the Padres on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Yastrzemski took Chris Paddack deep in the fourth for the Giants' third home run of the evening off the right-hander. It was encouraging to see the 30-year-old show no rust from being out with a calf injury, as he was able to make a major impact upon his return to the lineup Friday. Yastrzemski is hitting .285/.387/.565 and leads his team with 35 RBI and will be counted on to produce at the plate while the Giants try to fend off the Phillies and Brewers for the final postseason spot.
