MJ Melendez powers Royals past Dodgers

MJ Melendez went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in the Royals' 7-2 victory over the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

His performance included a crucial home run that helped extend the Royals' lead. Despite a challenging season with a batting average of just .168 and a high strikeout rate of .259, this game could be a sign of turning things around. Melendez's power potential is evident with eight homers on the season, but his overall production has been hindered by a low BABIP of .188, suggesting some bad luck. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on him for signs of sustained improvement, but he remains a risky play in most formats.

MJ Melendez powers Royals to narrow victory

MJ Melendez went 1-for-3 in the Royals' thrilling 10-9 win over the Mariners, highlighted by a home run and four RBI.

Fantasy Impact

This performance, though impactful, is a rare highlight in what has been a challenging season for Melendez, as evidenced by his .167 batting average and modest power numbers over 55 games. His home run in this game contributes to a total of six for the season, which suggests some underlying power potential that could be of interest in deeper fantasy leagues. However, his high strikeout rate (0.259) and low BABIP (.193) indicate ongoing struggles with making consistent contact, which fantasy managers should consider before making any roster moves based on this single game's performance.
