Outfielder Zach McKinstry went 1-for-3 with two RBI and a strikeout in the Dodgers' 6-3 win over the Pirates on Thursday.
McKinstry picked up a pair of RBI on Thursday. He drove in the first run with a sacrifice fly in the top of the third inning and added another with a single in the seventh. McKinstry has cooled off significantly after a hot April. An oblique injury that sent him to the IL coupled with a lackluster performance at the plate has knocked his slash down to .247/.288/.438 to go along with three home runs and 18 RBI over 73 at-bats. He doesn't have much fantasy value as a part-time player.
Zach McKinstry was activated from the 10-day IL on Saturday.
McKinstry missed more than a month with his oblique injury, but he'll return to the lineup on Saturday. On the year, the utility man is slashing .296/.328/.556, but his playing time won't be consistent enough for him to be worthy of rostering in mixed leagues.
Dodgers utility man Zach McKinstry is set to join Triple-A OKC this weekend and begin his rehab assignment from an oblique injury he suffered back on April 23rd.
McKinstry's return is surely a welcome one, as many dynasty owners had been eagerly waiting on his arrival in 2021. The 26-year-old was hitting .296 with three home runs and 14 RBIs prior to his injury, and will hope to do more of the same once he returns.
The Dodgers placed Zach McKinstry on the 10-day injured list with a right oblique strain. They recalled outfielder DJ Peters in a corresponding move.
That's a tough blow for the Dodgers and fantasy managers. In dynasty leagues, Zach McKinstry was a player we waited for. McKinstry has three home runs, seven runs, and 14 RBI with a .296 batting average. Hold onto McKinstry in 15-team leagues since he's a valuable player that plays all over the diamond and provides a healthy batting average while rocking a high 93.8% Z-Contact%.
Zach McKinstry is dealing with lower back stiffness, so he was scratched from the lineup.
