Tyler Heineman drives in two during Thursday's loss to Philadelphia

Tyler Heineman went 1-for-3 with two RBI and two strikeouts during Thursday's 8-7 loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

Heineman singled up the middle in the bottom of the ninth with the bases loaded as Pittsburgh began their comeback that would end up falling short Thursday evening. The runs were the fifth and sixth driven in by the 31-year-old, who is batting .218 this season.

Tyler Heineman collects three hits in Tuesday's win over Los Angeles

Tyler Heineman went 3-for-4 with two runs scored during Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

The 30-year-old led Pittsburgh in the hit category Tuesday evening, collecting three singles from behind the plate. Heineman was acquired from Toronto a week ago and boosted his season batting average to .222 with last night's performance.

Tyler Heineman collects two hits on Opening Night

Tyler Heineman went 2-for-3 with two singles as the Giants fell to the Dodgers 8-1 on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

He also plated the team's lone run of the game. Heineman got the Opening Night nod after Buster Posey opted out of the 2020 season. He doesn't have much fantasy value in a weak lineup. Additionally, top prospect Joey Bart will likely take over at some point this year.

Tyler Heineman signs minor league deal with Giants

Tyler Heineman has signed a minor league contract with the San Francisco Giants, after being outrighted by the Marlins back in October. He will look to fill the back-up role to Buster Posey once the season starts.

Fantasy Impact

Heineman only has 12 trips to the plate in his career at the major-league level, but has shown an aptitude for getting on base and avoiding strikeouts. In 1,004 PAs in Triple-A, the 28-year-old slashed .287/.353/.430. If Posey were to miss time, Heineman could be an interesting option in deeper OBP leagues or two-catcher formats.
