Austin Shenton shines, Rays fall short in thriller

by Chris Schommer | Rays Correspondent | Sun, Apr 28th 9:14am EDT

Austin Shenton went 2-for-4 in the Rays' narrow 8-7 loss to the White Sox, delivering a home run, a double, one run scored, and one RBI.

Fantasy Impact:

This performance could be a sign of Shenton finding his rhythm at the plate after a slow start to the season, marked by a .200 batting average and limited production over 10 games. His ability to connect for extra-base hits, including his first home run of the season, offers a glimmer of hope for fantasy managers looking for depth at third base. However, his high strikeout rate remains a concern, potentially capping his value in formats that penalize for strikeouts. Shenton's performance in this game might warrant a cautious watch or a speculative add in deeper leagues, but consistency will be key to his fantasy relevance.
