Kyle Higashioka homers in Game 1 win Tuesday

Kyle Higashioka went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in New York’s 5-4 win against the Rangers in Game 1 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact

Higashioka reached 10 home runs, the same as platoon mate Jose Trevino, who has over 100 more at-bats this season. Higashioka has more DFS value than season long as long as he’s in a timeshare behind the plate. Catcher is one position fantasy managers are better off looking elsewhere than on the Yankees. Higashioka is slashing .226/.263/.389 with 10 home runs, 30 RBI, and 27 runs scored in 226 at-bats this season.

Kyle Higashioka homers, collects three hits in win Saturday

Kyle Higashioka went 3-for-4 with a home run in New York’s 8-0 win against the Orioles on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Higashioka homered for the first time since September 9 in a game where he also had three hits. Higashioka offers low-cost value in DFS lineups when he starts but his platooning, with Jose Trevino getting the lion’s share of starts, makes him avoidable in season-long formats. Higashioka is slashing .219/.255/.374 with nine home runs, 28 RBI, and 26 runs scored in 219 at-bats this season.

Kyle Higashioka homers, collects three hits in loss Friday

Kyle Higashioka went 3-for-4 with a home run in New York’s 4-2 loss to the Rays on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Kyle Higashioka homered in the 9th inning off of JT Chargois but it was too little too late in a second straight Yankee loss. The three hits were a season-high for Higashioka and he had his first multi-hit game since August 3. Higgy is slashing .205/.246/.362 with eight home runs, 22 RBI, and 21 runs scored in 185 at-bats this season.

Kyle Higashioka homers, drives in two runs in loss Wednesday vs Mariners

Kyle Higashioka went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in New York’s 4-3 loss in Seattle on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Higashioka broke up reigning Cy Young winner Robbie Ray’s shutout bid and gave the Yankees a 2-1 lead with a two-run home run in the 7th inning. It was Higashioka’s seventh home run of the season and second in his last three games. Higgy has only played in three games so far in August as he has ceded work behind the plate to Jose Trevino. However, he is 4-for-10 (.400) with two home runs and four RBI in those three games. Higashioka is slugging .201/.250/.370 with seven homers, 20 RBI, and 20 runs scored in154 at-bats this weekend. While his lack of consistent starts makes him less than ideal in season-long formats, his recent production when he plays makes him an interesting low-cost value play in DFS formats, especially GPPs.

Kyle Higashioka homers, drives in two runs in loss Wednesday

Kyle Higashioka went 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in New York’s 7-3 loss to the Mariners on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Higashioka’s home run was his first since July 6 and first at Yankee Stadium since June 15. Higashioka is slashing .197/.248/.354 with six home runs and 18 RBI in 147 at-bats this season. He continues to be on the short end of the catcher platoon with Jose Trevino, with the latter being the better fantasy option. However, Higgy can offer extremely low-cost value allowing fantasy managers to allocate their budget elsewhere in DFS formats on days like this.
