Reds outfielder Shogo Akiyama should return to the team this week. Akiyama also homered in a scrimmage on Monday. (Bobby Nightengale Jr. on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

In Akiyama's first season in the majors (2020), he hit zero home runs with seven steals and a .245 batting average. He's likely better suited for OBP leagues with a .357 OBP in 2020 and a career .376 OBP in the Nippon Professional Baseball League. We'll see where Akiyama factors in upon his return with Castellanos, Winker, and their platoon situation at the other outfield spot.
