Austin Slater Shines in Giants' Victory Over Astros

Austin Slater went 3-for-5 with two RBI, a run scored, and a stolen base in the Giants' 5-3 win over the Astros.

Fantasy Impact:

This performance marked a significant upturn for Slater, who has struggled mightily this season, entering the game with a mere .212 batting average. His multi-hit game could be a sign of turning things around, but fantasy managers should remain cautious. Despite the positive outing, his season-long stats still reflect a high strikeout rate and a low walk rate, which limits his on-base potential. The stolen base is a reminder of his speed, but until Slater can consistently reach base, his fantasy impact will remain minimal.
