Derek Dietrich launches 19th homer Saturday

Derek Dietrich went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Saturday's slugfest win against the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact

On a night where the Reds banged out 24 hits, Dietrich broke out of his home run drought by smacking an opposite field homer in the sixth. This was his first homer since June 18, and his average has dropped to .218 on the season. He'll need to keep his power and average numbers up if he wants to see playing time in a crowded Reds infield.

Derek Dietrich singles in win Thursday

Derek Dietrich went 1-for-3 with a walk in Thursday's win over the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact

Dietrich got the start at second, filling in for the aching Scooter Gennett. Dietrich will likely see diminished playing time with Gennett's return. He hasn't homered since June 18, and his batting average is down to .225.

Derek Dietrich sits again against lefty

Derek Dietrich was held out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Dietrich has only 21 at-bats against lefties this season, so it's no surprise that he was placed on the bench for Saturday's game. With the return of Scooter Gennett, Dietrich will have a much tougher road to playing time at second base moving forward.

Derek Dietrich homers in win Tuesday

Derek Dietrich went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in the Reds' 4-3 win over the Astros on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Dietrich's home run pace has certainly slowed down, but he still has 18 homers and a .370 ISO on the year. He is a streaky player by nature, but due to his versatility owners can keep him on their roster and fit him in as needed, hoping to catch a hot streak.

Derek Dietrich strikes out three times in loss Saturday

Derek Dietrich went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in the Reds' 4-1 loss to the Phillies on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Dietrich was flailing at everything in this one, and has now gone three straight games without a hit. Such is the nature of a flyball-heavy, platoon player. There's plenty of reason to buy into his power explosion, but downside still exists in this profile.
