Brent Rooker homers, but A's fall to Guardians 10-2

Brent Rooker went 1-for-2 with a home run and an RBI in the Athletics' 10-2 loss to the Guardians.

Fantasy Impact:

This performance brought a slight uptick to his struggling .219 batting average, but the solo home run, his third of the season, continues to be a silver lining in an otherwise underwhelming start. Rooker's power potential is evident, yet his alarming 0.515 strikeout rate and minimal walk rate of 0.030 are red flags for fantasy managers. His ability to contribute home runs is valuable, but until he can improve his plate discipline, Rooker remains a risky play in most fantasy formats.
