1B,DH - MIA
Jesus Aguilar went 2-for-5 with a double, a two-run homer, and two runs scored in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Nationals.
Aguilar has now hit safely in 9-of-11 games following a five-day absence on the COVID IL in mid-June. Saturday's first-inning long ball was his first since June 14, as the veteran first baseman has not been hitting for much power lately. Aguilar is carrying a .719 OPS with 10 homers, 13 doubles, and 34 RBI through 68 games this season. He remains a viable corner infield or bench option in standard formats.
Jesus Aguilar is going to the COVID IL. Manager Don Mattingly stated that Aguilar is dealing with "medical issues" he "can't talk about."
It's hard to predict how long Aguilar will be out given so little information, but we should be given a clearer update sooner than later. Garrett Cooper will play 1B and Willians Astudillo will serve as the DH Friday.
Jesus Aguilar went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer, a double, and four RBI in Tuesday's 11-9 win over the Phillies.
Aguilar has found his power stroke over the past few days. The 31-year-old slugger has gone 6-for-21 with five extra-base hits and seven RBI in the last five games. Aguilar should probably at least be holding down a bench spot in most mixed fantasy formats.
Jesus Aguilar went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a two-run homer in Friday's 7-4 win over the Astros.
Aguilar ripped his first home run since May 27 in the first inning of Friday's game. He followed that up with another in the fifth frame. The veteran slugger is now 4-for-12 with five RBI over the past three days, so he seems to be heating back up.
Jesus Aguilar went 1-for-4 with a double, an RBI, and a run scored in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Giants.
Aguilar has come up with a double in each of the first two days of June. That is a good sign for the veteran first baseman after ending last month on a 1-for-16 skid. Aguilar remains a decent corner infielder or bench bat in mixed fantasy leagues.
