  • Yankees' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Four hits Tuesday

    Kiner-Falefa went 4-for-5 with four RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

    Kiner-Falefa singled home two runs in the first and another two insurance runs in the ninth and had the fourth four-hit game of his career. He's had a complete revival at the plate lately and from May 16 is slashing .382/.417/.765 with three homers, 12 RBI and 10 runs scored. Prior to his recent surge, he'd recorded just two RBI and had just two extra-base hits while hitting .179/.229/.205 over his first 31 games this year. It's not realistic to expect his power surge to last, but he has certainly added some value to his name in deeper leagues and AL-only formats.

  • Yankees' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Emerges as main left fielder

    Kiner-Falefa will start in left field and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Padres, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    Kiner-Falefa is manning left for the third straight game and the sixth time in eight games. He appears to have taken over as the primary option at the position in the wake of his surprising power surge thus far in May; he's maintaining a .785 OPS on the month and has collected seven extra-base hits, including three home runs. Kiner-Falefa could be at risk of falling into more of a part-time role once the Yankees possibly bring back both Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) and Josh Donaldson (hamstring) from the injured list next weekend.

  • Yankees' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: On surprising power surge

    Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-4 with a home run, a triple, two total runs and two total RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Orioles.

    Kiner-Falefa got another start in left field -- his third in four days -- and was a key cog in New York's offense, tripling and scoring in the third inning and swatting a two-run homer in the fifth. He's now gone deep three times over his past 15 plate appearances, a surprising stretch given that he homered just four times across 531 trips to the plate during the entirety of last season. However, Kiner-Falefa isn't starting Thursday against Kyle Gibson, as Greg Allen is instead manning left field and batting ninth.

  • Yankees' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Another start in left field

    Kiner-Falefa is starting in left field and batting eighth in Wednesday's tilt versus the Orioles, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

    Kiner-Falefa has now started three of the last four games in left field and all of them have come against right-handed pitching. Both of IKF's home runs this season have come in his last five games.

  • Yankees' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Goes deep Saturday

    Kiner-Falefa went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's extra-inning win against Cincinnati.

    Kiner-Falefa plated the Yankees' second run with a solo shot to left field in the fifth inning. It was the utility man's second homer over his past two starts after failing to go deep in his first 31 games this season. Kiner-Falefa has never hit more than eight homers in an MLB campaign and went deep just four times in 531 plate appearances last season, so it's unlikely that the sudden surge in power is anything more than an aberration.

  • Yankees' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Pops first homer

    Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, a solo home run and two additional runs scored in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Blue Jays.

    Getting the start at third base and hitting eighth, Kiner-Falefa gave the Yankees a 3-0 lead by taking Kevin Gausman deep in the fifth inning. It was the first homer of the year for the 28-year-old utility player, who has a meager .200/.256/.275 slash line through 87 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Gets first career start in LF

    Kiner-Falefa will start in left field and bat eighth in Wednesday's game against the Guardians.

    Kiner-Falefa learned center field during spring training, and with Harrison Bader having returned from the injured list, Kiner-Falefa will now try his hand at a corner spot. The 28-year-old has been dreadful at the plate this season with a .421 OPS over 21 games, so he could struggle to gain traction as an everyday player in the outfield.

  • Yankees' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Steals third bag

    Kiner-Falefa went 1-for-3 with a steal in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Blue Jays.

    Kiner-Falefa singled with two outs in the third inning before swiping second base, his third steal of the year. The 28-year-old utility man offers some value on the basepaths, stealing at least 20 bases in his previous two seasons. However, Kiner-Falefa can't be relied on for fantasy purposes while primarily coming off the bench in New York. He's slashing just .176/.222/.176 with two RBI and three runs scored through 36 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Knocks in two runs Thursday

    Kiner-Falefa went 1-for-3 with a walk, two RBI and a stolen base in a 9-3 win against the Angels on Thursday.

    Kiner-Falefa got another start in center field -- his fifth this season and second in the past three days. He plated a pair of runs in the seventh inning for his first two RBI of the campaign and also notched his second steal. Kiner-Falefa is still slashing a miserly .138/.167/.138 on the season, and he may start to see less outfield opportunities once Harrison Bader (oblique) returns from the injured list.

  • Yankees' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Starting at third base

    Kiner-Falefa is starting at third base and batting ninth Friday as the Yankees host the Twins.

    IKF has now made three starts at the hot corner this season along with two more in center field. He's managed just two hits -- both singles -- in his first 19 at-bats in 2023.

  • Yankees' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Sitting Wednesday

    Kiner-Falefa will take a seat for Wednesday's series finale versus the Phillies, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.

    Kiner-Falefa has been earning starts in center field this season, starting there two out of the last three games while going 0-for-7 at the plate in those contests. Aaron Judge will slide over to center field while Franchy Cordero will take over in right field and make his second start of the year Wednesday.

  • Yankees' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Getting another start in CF

    Kiner-Falefa is starting in center field and batting seventh for the Yankees on Tuesday against the Phillies.

    Kiner-Falefa had never played an inning in center field at the major-league level prior to this season but has now started at the position two of the last three games. He'll be flanked by Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton while Aaron Judge gets a day as the designated hitter.
