Isiah Kiner-Falefa to see time in center field

Isiah Kiner-Falefa is expected to see time in center field this season.

Fantasy Impact

Kiner-Falefa has been getting some reps in center field at Yankees practice recently and the team intends to test him at the position in game situations by the end of the week. Kiner-Falefa started 131 games at shortstop for the Yankees last year, but he is expected to move around the field in a utility role in 2023.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa signs one year deal to return to New York

Isiah Kiner-Falefa signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Yankees on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Kiner-Falefa was the Yankees' primary shortstop in 2022, slashing .261/.314/.327 in 531 plate appearances. With just four home runs and stolen bases a piece last year, Kiner-Falefa has minimal fantasy value. The presence of Oswald Peraza and Anthony Volpe coming through the system, Kiner-Falefa's role in 2023 is unknown.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa homers in loss Monday

Isiah Kiner-Falefa went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in New York’s 3-2 extra-inning loss in Toronto on Monday.

Izzy has been getting hot down the stretch and has been guaranteed points in DFS tourneys.
