Isiah Kiner-Falefa injures finger on bunt attempt

New York Yankees shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa is nursing an injury after bunting a ball off his finger during Sunday's win over the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

The bunt itself was quite impressive. It came with two strikes and was successful, putting the Yankees one step closer to their eventual walk-off win. As manager Aaron Boone noted, Kiner-Falefa "basically bunted the ball off his finger just to keep it fair. It was pretty impressive." Going forward, there's a chance Kiner-Falefa will miss time. It will be interesting to see how his finger responds on Monday. Between Kiner-Falefa's finger and Gleyber Torres' mild ankle sprain, the Yankees could seek middle infield reinforcements from Triple-A in the short term.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa tallies two hits, an RBI and a run in win Saturday

Isiah Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in New York’s 4-0 win in Toronto.

Fantasy Impact

Kiner-Falefa has now hit safely in 10 of 15 games in June so far and is 17-for-54 (.315) for the month. IKF is on pace for his 2nd .300+ month (April, June), carries a cool .273 average while playing a mean shortstop for New York. The Yankees and fantasy managers have to be happy with Kiner-Falefa’s season especially considering he was considered to be a throw in player in the trade that brought Josh Donaldson to New York right before the season started.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa doubles, drives in run in win Tuesday

Isiah Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in New York’s 2-0 win against Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Tuesday was Kiner-Falefa’s third consecutive 2-hit game and sixth 2-hit performance in 11 June contests so far. Kiner-Falefa is 13-for-40 (.325) in June and has his season average up to .272. The RBI was his fifth in the last three games, which account for all of his RBIs since May 24. Kinder-Falefa has been a mutlti-hit machine and fantasy managers have to be happy with their ROI on the 27-year-old’s ADP.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa drives in three runs in win Sunday

Isiah Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-5 with a double, three RBIs and a run scored in New York’s 18-4 victory over the Cubs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Kiner-Falefa recorded two hits for the second straight game on Sunday. The four RBIs Kiner-Falefa has in the past two games are the first runs he's driven in since May 24. He appears to have broken out of his recent 7-for-25 slump after receiving the night off on Friday. Fantasy managers would like to se Kiner-Falefa have more offensive days like these playing in such an explosive offense.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa collects two hits, steals base in win Sunday

Isiah Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and a stolen base in New York's 10-inning 5-4 victory over Detroit.

Fantasy Impact

Kiner-Falefa recorded his third multi-hit game in his last four contests and has hit safely in eight of his last nine games. The stolen base was his eighth of the year and third in June already after stealing three all of May. IKF continues to contribute hits and stolen bases, but has no home runs in 168 at-bats. However, we're talking about a guy with just 16 career homers in 1,572 ABs, so fantasy managers should not have expected power from the shortstop.
