Jeimer Candelario powers Reds to narrow victory over Brewers

by Chris Schommer | Reds Correspondent | Sat, Jun 15th 7:12am EDT

Jeimer Candelario went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double, two RBI, and one run scored in the Reds' 6-5 win over the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact:

This performance highlighted Candelario's potential to deliver power and run production, crucial for fantasy managers needing a boost in those categories. Despite a batting average that might not turn heads (.247 on the season), his ability to connect for extra-base hits (12 HRs, 16 doubles) adds valuable slugging to fantasy lineups. His wOBA of .339 indicates a solid offensive contribution, making him a viable option in deeper fantasy leagues or as a fill-in during hot streaks. However, his high strikeout rate (0.241) and low walk rate (0.071) suggest a level of volatility that could affect his consistency.
