Josh Naylor powers Guardians to tight victory

Josh Naylor went 3-for-4 with a home run in the Guardians' narrow 9-8 win over the Tigers. He also drove in four runs, scored twice, and stole a base, rounding out his day with two walks.

Fantasy Impact

This performance is a bright spot in what has been a somewhat average season for Naylor, lifting his batting average to .247 and his RBI count to 70. His ability to contribute across multiple categories in this game, particularly with his 22nd homer and a rare stolen base, should remind fantasy managers of his potential upside. While his strikeout rate remains modest and his BABIP suggests some bad luck, Tuesday's game could be a sign of turning fortunes for those in need of power and occasional speed.

Josh Naylor shows power in Guardians' loss

Josh Naylor went 2-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored in the Guardians' 4-2 loss to the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

His performance included driving in one RBI, though it wasn't enough to secure a win for Cleveland. Naylor's home run adds to his season tally, bringing him to 21 homers. Despite a modest .246 batting average, his power numbers have been a bright spot. With a solid .345 wOBA, he remains a viable fantasy option, particularly in formats that value power hitting. However, his low .239 BABIP suggests some bad luck this season, potentially indicating room for improvement in his batting average as the season progresses.

Josh Naylor delivers in Guardians' 7-2 win over Royals

Josh Naylor went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI in the Guardians' victory over the Royals.

Fantasy Impact

His performance today, featuring a pair of doubles, helped bolster his RBI total to 60 for the season. Despite a somewhat modest .239 batting average, Naylor's ability to drive in runs and his occasional power surge with 20 homers this year make him a valuable asset in deeper fantasy leagues. His .340 wOBA indicates a solid offensive contribution, although his low .231 BABIP suggests there might be room for improvement or a potential regression. Fantasy managers should consider Naylor a decent option, especially in formats that reward extra-base hits and RBI.
