CF - TEX - MiLB
Rangers center fielder Leody Taveras went hitless over four plate appearances Wednesday, walking twice while tallying a pair of strikeouts.
He had reached base just six times prior to Wednesday's game, nothing four hits, a walk, and hit by pitch ahead of the effort. His outcome against the Angels brought his line to .093/.170/.093. Still, thanks to his baserunning ability, he ranks 69th among outfielders in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings.
Rangers outfielder Leody Taveras went 1-for-4 with a single, strikeout, and stolen base in Tuesday's win.
It was a solid game for Taveras, who owns a miserable .111/.158/.111 slash line with two stolen bases, 16 strikeouts, and just one walk. The baserunning has been impressive, but the rest of Taveras's game has been lacking.
Rangers center-fielder Leody Taveras went 0-for-3 out of the ninth spot in the lineup, dropping his batting average to .080. However, he was hit by a pitch and then stole second base.
The swiped bag represents a rare bright spot for Taveras, who has just two hits (both singles) through 25 at-bats this year. He also has one walk, today's HBP, and a whopping 12 strikeouts.
Through 22 at-bats, Leody Taveras just can't get things going at the plate. He went hitless on Friday night, dropping his batting average to .091.
The 22-year-old outfielder has just two singles, one run, one walk, and one RBI. He has amassed 12 strikeouts, which rank as the fifth-most in baseball. Despite the poor start, Taveras does have some fantasy value, albeit small. He currently ranks 68th among outfielders in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings.
Rangers outfielder Leody Taveras came off the bench on Monday and failed to record a hit in one at-bat. He is now 0-for-13 over four games this season.
It's certainly not a good start for Taveras, who slashed .235/.316/.403 with four home runs, 14 walks, and 43 strikeouts last season. The 22-year old has no fantasy relevance due to his struggles and could be on the verge of demotion if his woes cannot be reversed.
