C - Texas Rangers
Jonah Heim is expected to make his first Cactus League start on February 28.
Heim will miss the Rangers first five games in the Cactus League. He is reportedly fine, but the Rangers are giving him extra recovery time from last season.
Jonah Heim went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer and two runs scored Wednesday.
Heim's season-long numbers, including 18 home runs and 90 RBI, have made him an intriguing option at the position for fantasy managers all season long.
Jonah Heim is missing from the lineup for the Texas Rangers against the Cleveland Guardians Sunday.
Heim will sit out Sunday’s series finale for general rest, with Austin Hedges filling in behind the plate at catcher and batting ninth against the Guardians for manager Bruce Bochy.
Jonah Heim had a solid performance in Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, going 2-for-5 at the plate with a home run and an RBI.
Although he struck out three times, Heim's power was on full display as he launched his 17th home run of the season. With this strong showing, Heim's fantasy value remains steady, especially in leagues that reward power production. Heim's season-long stats show a respectable .265 batting average with 85 RBI and 17 home runs in 116 games played, making him a valuable asset behind the plate for fantasy managers.
Despite the loss, Heim showcased his ability to come through in key situations, driving in four runs with a home run and contributing to the offense.
With 74 RBI on the season, Heim has been a reliable run producer for the Rangers, and his performance in this game only solidifies his value as a fantasy option moving forward. While his batting average sits at .265, Heim's power numbers, including 15 home runs and 23 doubles, make him a valuable asset in deeper leagues. Keep an eye on his continued production as the season progresses.
