Royals first baseman Nick Pratto is back in the starting lineup Tuesday versus the Guardians.
Pratto didn't start Monday's series opener against a left-handed Logan Allen but returns to take on righty Aaron Civale on Tuesday. It's been a decent season for the youngster who is hitting .241 with seven homers and a .316 wOBA across 291 trips to the plate.
Nick Pratto went 1-for-2 with a home run, an RBI, and a run scored on Saturday against the Yankees.
Pratto's homer was his sevetnth of the season, and he now has 31 RBIs on the year. In addition to his offensive contributions, Pratto displayed good plate discipline, drawing two walks and avoiding any strikeouts. Despite the loss, Pratto's performance was a bright spot for the Royals in an otherwise disappointing game.
Pratto went 1-for-5 with a home run and an RBI in Friday's game against Tampa Bay.
Despite his efforts, the Royals couldn't keep up with the Rays, losing 11-3. The 24-year-old first baseman has been a consistent presence in the lineup this season, with a .273 batting average and five homers in 51 games played. The 24-year-old first baseman remains a solid option for fantasy managers.
Royals first baseman/outfielder Nick Pratto is not in the starting lineup Thursday versus the Rays.
Pratto doubled and scored a run in five plate appearances on Wednesday against the Tigers but will sit with a tough lefty on the mound in the Rays' Shane McClanahan on Thursday. It's been a nice season for lefty-swinging Pratto who is hitting .276 with four homers, one steal, and a .346 wOBA across 197 trips to the plate.
Nick Pratto went 2-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored, and an RBI in a losing effort against the Marlins on Monday.
The 24-year-old first baseman has been a bright spot for the Royals this season, hitting .298 with four home runs, 15 RBI, and a .377 wOBA in 35 games played. While his strikeout rate of 32.9% is a bit concerning, he sports a quality 11.4% BB% while his 140 wRC+ suggests his bat has been 40% above the league average this season.
