Tyler Austin launches home run Sunday

Tyler Austin belts fourth homer on Thursday

Tyler Austin hit a pinch-hit solo homer in the Giants' loss to the Braves on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Austin has posted a .913 OPS in limited action this season but isn't getting enough playing time to be fantasy relevant.

Tyler Austin homers twice, drives in six on Thursday in Coors Field

Tyler Austin went 2-for-5 with two homers and six RBI as the Giants lost to the Rockies 12-11 on Thursday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact

Austin has done well in limited time with the Giants this year, batting .333 with two homers and nine RBI thus far. Still, he is unlikely to provide much fantasy value this season.

Tyler Austin dealt to the Giants

Tyler Austin has been traded from the Minnesota Twins to the San Francisco Giants. Austin will be activated onto the Giants' 25-man active roster.

Fantasy Impact

Austin is leaving the Twins with career metrics of .232/.291/.469/.760, along with 86 hits, 24 home runs, 67 RBI, 46 runs and two stolen bases. Unless Austin can forumulate a breakout year, he will stay off of two-league radars completely. Even for NL-only leagues, the 26-year old should be avoided for the time being.

Tyler Austin ropes two doubles Thursday

Tyler Austin went 2-for-4 with two doubles on Thursday against the Tigers, driving in three runs. He also scored twice in the 9-3 victory.

Fantasy Impact

Austin has had fantastic back-to-back games, mainly because they were both against lefties. Unfortunately for Austin, he will see a righty on the mound Friday. Austin will be a breakout candidate in 2019, especially if he can figure out how to hit righties.
