The Dodgers have recalled utility player Zach McKinstry from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
McKinstry has slashed .217/.265/.408 with seven homers, 29 RBI, 10 walks, and 49 strikeouts in the majors this season. He's a versatile player who has spent at least a dozen games at second base, third base, and both corner outfield positions this year.
Outfielder Zach McKinstry went 1-for-1 with a solo home run as the Dodgers lost to the Marlins 9-6 on Wednesday.
McKinstry came up clutch on Wednesday when he swatted a pinch-hit home run in the top of the ninth inning off of Anthony Bender. The dinger tied the ball game but the Dodgers would go on to lose in the bottom of the ninth. The 26-year-old has had some bright spots this season and is slashing .256/.308/.463 with six home runs, 27 RBI, and one stolen base.
Outfielder Zach McKinstry went 2-for-4 with a grand slam and two strikeouts as the Dodgers blew out the Cubs 7-1 in Sunday's series finale.
McKinstry put the Dodgers on the board in a major way in the bottom of the second inning when swatted his first career grand slam off of Adbert Alzolay to put the Dodgers up 4-0. It was part of a six-run second inning for L.A. The 26-year-old rookie picked up a single in the contest as well and is now slashing .259/.309/.455 with five home runs, 26 RBI, and a stolen base over 112 at-bats this season. He has fantasy upside but it won't be realized until he gets the chance to play everyday.
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.
