Rafael Ortega back in the lineup Wednesday

Mets outfielder Rafael Ortega is back in the starting lineup Wednesday versus the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact

Ortega sat out against a left-handed Andrew Heaney on Wednesday but will return to take on right-hander Dane Dunning one night later. The former Cubs outfielder is hitting .234 with one homer and five stolen bases across just 88 plate appearances with the Mets this season.

Rafael Ortega in mix for roster spot

Rafael Ortega has a good shot for an Opening Day roster spot with the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact

According to manager Aaron Boone, Ortega was in the mix prior to Harrison Bader's injury. But now with Bader likely to start the season on the IL, his chances have seemed to increase. He slashed .241/.331/.358 with a 96 wRC+ in 2022 with the Cubs.

Rafael Ortega signs minor-league deal with Yankees

The New York Yankees have signed outfielder Rafael Ortega to a minor-league deal.

Fantasy Impact

Seemingly out of nowhere, Ortega slashed .291/.360/.463 with 11 home runs and 12 stolen bases across 103 games for the Cubs at age 30 in 2021, good for a 122 wRC+. However, he was unable to build on that effort last season with a .241 average, seven homers, and a 96 wRC+ across 118 appearances. He could compete for a depth outfield role while his left-handed bat could prove fruitful at Yankee Stadium.

Rafael Ortega signs minor-league deal with Yankees

The New York Yankees have signed outfielder Rafael Ortega to a minor-league deal.

Fantasy Impact

Ortega burst onto the scene as a late-bloomer with the 2021 Cubs, hitting .291 with 11 homers, 12 stolen bases, and a 122 wRC+. The 31-year-old regressed last season, however, hitting .241 with seven homers, 12 steals, and a 96 wRC+ across 371 trips to the plate. He will compete for a depth role in the Yankees outfield in 2023.

Fantasy Impact

Ortega will miss the rest of the 2022 season with the fracture he suffered on Tuesday. He ends the season with a .241/.331/.358 slash line and a 95 wRC+.
