Anthony Rizzo drives in run in Yankees' victory over Padres

Anthony Rizzo went 1-for-3 with an RBI as the Yankees topped the Padres 4-1.

Fantasy Impact

His performance included a single, a walk, and a strikeout. Despite the modest stats in this game, Rizzo's season has been fairly average, maintaining a .250 batting average and contributing sporadically with power, as evidenced by his seven homers. His on-base skills are stable, highlighted by a decent walk rate, but the lack of extra-base hits and a middling BABIP suggest limited upside. Fantasy managers should view Rizzo as a steady, yet unspectacular option, primarily valuable in deeper leagues where consistency rather than high upside is required.

Anthony Rizzo powers Yankees to victory with key homer

Anthony Rizzo played a pivotal role in the Yankees' 2-0 win over the Rays, delivering a significant performance at the plate.

Fantasy Impact

He went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, and one run scored. This outing was a bright spot in what has been a somewhat average season for Rizzo, boosting his batting average to .265 and his RBI count to 22 through 39 games. His home run, his seventh of the season, underscores his continued power-hitting capability, which remains an essential aspect of his fantasy value. While his strikeout rate has been manageable, his modest walk rate suggests limited opportunities for scoring runs. Fantasy managers should view Rizzo as a reliable source of home runs and RBI, though his overall impact might be capped by the surrounding lineup's performance and his on-base skills.

Anthony Rizzo powers Yankees past Tigers with key homer

Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-4 in the Yankees' 5-3 victory over the Tigers, delivering a home run and driving in three runs.

Fantasy Impact

This performance highlighted his ability to contribute significantly in clutch situations, as his home run proved pivotal in securing the win. Rizzo's season has been solid, maintaining a .263 batting average with six homers and 20 RBI over 35 games. His power numbers are respectable, and while his walk rate could see improvement, his wOBA of .330 indicates effective offensive production. Fantasy managers should continue to value Rizzo for his consistent RBI opportunities and power potential, especially in matchups where the Yankees face favorable pitching.

Anthony Rizzo powers Yankees in rout of Brewers

Anthony Rizzo had a productive day at the plate as the Yankees trounced the Brewers 15-3.

Fantasy Impact

He went 3-for-4 with a home run, three runs scored, and two RBI. This performance could be a sign of Rizzo finding his rhythm after a somewhat tepid start to the season, given his .250 batting average and modest power numbers. His home run today, his fourth of the season, along with the multiple hits, should reassure fantasy managers about his potential to contribute both power and average. While his strikeout rate remains a concern, performances like today's show that Rizzo still has the ability to be a valuable fantasy asset, especially in leagues that value power and run production.
