Arraez Powers Padres Past Reds with Rare Homer

by Jesse Garcia | Padres Correspondent | Wed, May 22nd 9:23pm EDT

Luis Arraez went 4-for-5 in the Padres' 7-3 victory over the Reds, including a home run, one run scored, and two RBI.

Fantasy Impact:

This performance marked a notable spike in Arraez's power display, considering it was his first home run of the season. His consistent contact skills are evident with a .330 batting average over 49 games, but the long ball has been a rare sight. Fantasy managers should temper expectations for home runs, but his ability to hit for average and get on base can provide a steady source of runs and a decent number of RBI from the second base position. His low strikeout rate continues to make him a valuable asset in formats that penalize for strikeouts.
