1B,3B - COL
Rockies first baseman Josh Fuentes went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader. In addition to the big blast, he logged an RBI groundout.
Fuentes knocked in more than half of the Rockies' total runs en route to victory. Despite the solid day, he's still slashing just .188/.188/.333 with 14 strikeouts, nine RBI, and zero walks.
Batting seventh and playing third base, Josh Fuentes went 0-for-3 with one strikeout on Tuesday. The Rockies ultimately lost to the Dodgers, 7-0, so Fuentes wasn't alone in his struggles at the plate.
Fuentes officially dropped below the Mendoza line as his slash fell to .189/.189/.297. He has struck out 11 times while failing to draw a walk. It's a significant step back from his .306 average in 2020.
Batting sixth and playing third base, Josh Fuentes recorded just one hit and one RBI while striking out twice on Wednesday as the Rockies took on the Diamondbacks. After hitting .306 last season, he has struggled out of the gate in 2021, recording four hits over 19 at-bats.
Fuentes's most appealing stat is his RBI count, which stands at five. He also has seven strikeouts and zero walks. He has minimal fantasy relevance, though playing at Coors Field does warrant observation.
Rockies third baseman Josh Fuentes contributed a pair of runs on Saturday. He went 1-for-4 against the Dodgers with a two-run homer in the seventh inning. He also struck out once.
Fuentes's blast tied the game, though the lead was blown by the Rockies' bullpen in the next inning. The corner infielder hit just two home runs last year and three in 2019, so perhaps this is a sign that he has added some power. He hit .306 last season and owns a career .275/.289/.425 slash line. Viewed by many as a bench player, Fuentes has started all three Rockies games this year, going 2-for-13 at the plate. From a fantasy perspective, he will frequently warrant some consideration due to the friendliness of Coors Field.
Josh Fuentes is batting second and playing third base for the second straight game on Friday.
There was a chance that Fuentes was only hitting second on Opening Day because the team was facing a lefty, but this is worth noting with Trevor Bauer on tap tonight. Fuentes is worth DFS consideration due to Coors Field, but obviously the matchup isn't ideal.
