  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Clubs clutch homer Sunday

    Rice went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in a loss to the Orioles on Sunday.

    Rice was hitless through four at-bats but came through when it mattered most, swatting a three-run homer in the ninth inning off Baltimore closer Craig Kimbrel to give New York a 5-3 lead. That result didn't hold, as the Orioles plated three runs in the bottom of the frame to pull out the victory, but Rice's heroics still stand out. While the rookie is batting just .228 on the campaign, he's shown a flair for the big moment, batting .280 with runners in scoring position and already adding a three-homer game to his big-league resume.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Slugs fifth homer

    Rice went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run Tuesday in a loss to the Rays.

    Rice brought New York to within a run with his two-run shot in the seventh frame, but the team was unable to score again. The rookie first baseman continues to thrive in the majors, as he's slashing .267/.348/.567 with five home runs, three doubles, nine runs and 14 RBI over just 19 contests covering 69 plate appearances. All five of Rice's homers and 10 of his RBI have come over his past five games.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Homers three times in win

    Rice went 3-for-5 with three home runs and seven RBI in a 14-4 win over the Red Sox on Saturday.

    Rice opened the scoring with a leadoff home run in the first inning and added three-run blasts in the fifth and seventh. According to Bryan Hoch of, Rice is the first rookie in Yankees history with a three-homer game. The 25-year-old is hitting .294 with four home runs and 12 RBI through his first 60 major-league plate appearances while earning opportunities to hit atop one of the league's best lineups.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Slugs first big-league homer

    Rice went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in a loss to the Reds on Thursday.

    Rice hit out of the leadoff spot for the first time as a major leaguer and produced his first big-league home run with a 407-foot solo shot in the fifth inning. The catcher/first baseman has some intriguing qualities befitting of the leadoff role -- he's demonstrated good plate discipline throughout his professional career and has a .360 OBP along with a 7:8 BB:K through 42 plate appearances with the Yankees. Rice's power is an asset too; he hit 15 long balls in 60 minor-league games this season after going deep 20 times in the minors last year.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Elevated to leadoff spot

    Rice will start at first base and bat leadoff in Thursday's game versus the Reds.

    The Yankees have dropped the struggling Anthony Volpe down to the No. 6 spot in the batting order and Rice will receive the first opportunity in Volpe's old slot. Rice is slashing .270/.378/.351 with a 6:7 K:BB in his first 14 contests in the majors. Certainly, it would be a major boost for his fantasy prospects if he can manage to stick at the top of the Yankees' lineup.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Absent from lineup

    Rice is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Reds.

    With southpaw Andrew Abbott on the hill for the Reds, the Yankees are going with right-handed-hitting J.D. Davis at first base. The left-handed-hitting Rice has now started one of four games versus lefties since Davis was acquired.
