Yandy Diaz Homers in Loss to Red Sox

Yandy Diaz went 1-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in the Rays' 8-5 loss to the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact:

Diaz's solo shot was a small silver lining in an otherwise disappointing game for Tampa Bay. Despite the loss, this performance could hint at a potential uptick in power for Diaz, who has now tallied three homers on the season. His batting average sits at .255 through 50 games, and while he isn't a major source of home runs or stolen bases, his ability to drive in runs and hit for a decent average could keep him relevant in deeper fantasy leagues. Owners should monitor if this home run sparks a hot streak, but expectations should be tempered given his overall power numbers.
