1B - NYY - IL10
Chris Gittens went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Tuesday as the Yankees beat the Blue Jays by a 6-5 score.
Gittens has struggled since being called up to the majors and is hitting just 1-for-17 over seven games. Look for the 27-year-old rookie to be sent back down to the minors when Luke Voit gets activated from the IL.
Yankees' first baseman Chris Gittens receives the call up to the majors on Saturday. At Triple-A in 2021, Gittens hit four home runs, 16 runs, and 11 RBI with a triple-slash of .283/.486/.585.
Gittens crushes baseballs sitting at 6-foot-4 and 250-pounds. Per FanGraphs, Gittens has 80-grade raw power, which is just ridiculous. He's a name to monitor in deep leagues if he mashes since Luke Voit is on the injured list. However, Gittens is a bit older at 27 years old, so not a top prospect by any means.
