Mike Napoli homers in win over Royals

Mike Napoli snapped a dry run at the plate with a solo home run this evening that helped propel the Rangers to victory over the Royals. Napoli's third home run of the season came off of Ian Kennedy in the second inning.

Fantasy Impact

Hopefully this home run can help spark a hot streak. Napoli's power is where the majority of his value lives, so if he is not hitting for extra bases, it will be hard to play him daily in fantasy settings.

Mike Napoli's struggles at the plate continue

In an extra innings win on Thursday night, Mike Napoli did not record a hit but did walk twice. He had recorded three hits in his previous four games, although only one went for extra bases. He has yet to get his power going this season despite playing nearly every contest as the starting first baseman for the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact

The two walks are nice, but in most season long formats those do not necessarily help. With an OBP around .250 after this outing, the record is not much different in that format. Napoli is struggling, and until things turn around, he is best left on the bench. For DFS, look elsewhere for impact out of the first base position.

Mike Napoli reached base twice in Sunday's loss to Mariners

Mike Napoli has been cold to start 2017. Yesterday, he was able to get on base twice, once by walk, once by single, while scoring a run in the thrilling loss to the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact

Napoli is hitting an abysmal .156 with a .255 OBP to start the year. With only three extra base hits, one can wonder whether Napoli's age is catching up to him. There is still tons of time for him to get going and turn it around, but a continued slump and the looming return of Adrian Beltre could put Napoli in danger of losing at bats.

Mike Napoli hitless against Mariners

The Rangers have now dropped two straight against the Mariners, and a stagnant offense is the reason why. Mike Napoli's bat is an important piece for the Rangers and he has gone hitless so far in the series.

Fantasy Impact

Keep calm and wait for a home run barrage, because that is exactly what Mike Napoli can do. In the meantime, it may be beneficial to grab a corner in the free agent pool to supplement your offense until Napoli can get going.

Mike Napoli heating up at the plate

After being robbed by Mike Trout yesterday, Mike Napoli decided not to let his second homer of the year have any chance of being caught by anything but a fan. Napoli's no doubter opened the floodgates of the Texas offense as they put up eight runs in a win over the Angels.

Fantasy Impact

Napoli is a decent bet to provide much of the same punch as a cornerman in 2017 as in years past. His batting average may hurt a little, but the power in his bat is still there.
