LF,RF - CLE
Guardians outfielder Steven Kwan is back in the starting lineup Thursday versus the Orioles.
Kwan got a rare breather on Wednesday against the Royals but will hit leadoff and play left field Thursday in Cleveland. The outfielder is hitting .275 with five homers, 20 steals, and a .728 OPS across a team-high 677 plate appearances.
With a .271 batting average and 48 RBI on the season, Kwan has been a solid contributor for fantasy teams, providing a decent amount of hits and runs scored.
However, his lack of power with only 5 home runs limits his overall fantasy value. Additionally, his 18 stolen bases and 57 walks provide some additional value in leagues that reward those categories. Overall, Kwan remains a serviceable outfield option in deeper fantasy leagues, but his lack of power limits his upside.
Steven Kwan tied the game in the ninth inning and hit a walk-off sac fly on Saturday against the Rays.

Steven Kwan had a solid performance at the plate, going 3-for-4 with no RBI, no doubles, no triples, no home runs, and no runs scored in the Guardians' 7-2 loss to the White Sox.
