Player Outlook
Leody Taveras has been on the fantasy periphery for awhile, but 2023 was the first time we have seen the production begin to match the hype. The 25-year old outfielder finished the season with a palindromic 14 homers, 67 runs, 67 RBIs, and 14 steals over 143 games. The switch hitter continued to do most of his damage from the left side hitting 12 of those 14 homers off righties and hitting 34 points better against them than southpaws. Taveras's season was most frontloaded as he struggled after the break dealing with hand soreness and hit just .233 with 4 homers after the break. His defense and baserunning keep him in the lineup nearly everyday as long as his body holds up, but his spot in the lineup is what ultimately limits his upside as he should once again hit in the lower third of the lineup. His 2023 is very repeatable and a 20-20 season is possible should Bochy decide to leverage the running game more often in 2024.

  • Rangers' Leody Taveras: Nabs sixth steal

    Taveras went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Dodgers. Taveras' bat went cold over the last week -- he entered Wednesday 0-for-23 over his last seven contests. The outfielder hit .275 over 11 games prior to his slump, but he's posted just five multi-hit efforts since the start of May. For the season, he's at a .220/.289/.335 slash line with four home runs, six steals, 13 RBI and 26 runs scored over 240 plate appearances. Taveras is still seeing steady playing time in center field, though his poor hitting has kept him at the bottom of the order.

  • Rangers' Leody Taveras: Bops first homer

    Taveras went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Nationals. Taveras bopped his first home run of the season, a two-run shot as part of the Rangers' three-run eighth inning that put the game out of reach. He's been a streaky hitter since emerging as the everyday center fielder, but Taveras hasn't done much streaking yet in 2024. He's batting .226 with a .613 OPS, and Tuesday's RBI were his first in 10 games and just his third and fourth of the season.

  • Rangers' Leody Taveras: Crushes home run in victory

    Taveras went 2-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Astros in Game 1 of the ALCS. Taveras's deep shot marked the first of his postseason career, as he took Justin Verlander deep on a slider left over the heart of the plate to add an insurance run in the fifth inning. The switch-hitting outfielder doesn't typically depend on power for his scoring, slugging a modest 14 home runs in 143 regular-season games. However, he has hit well in the playoffs so far, slashing .333/.440/.524 in 21 at-bats with five runs, three RBI, two stolen bases and Sunday's home run.
