Player Outlook
James Outman began the season on the busier side of a center field platoon, but it wasn't long before the rookie became an everyday player, appearing in 151 contests. The lefty swinger still must hit for more power facing southpaws, as evidenced by his .254/.357/.308 line, but a 246/.351/.484 effort facing right-handers landed Outman third in the NL Rookie of the Year voting. Outman stole 16 bases in 19 tries, for an 84 percent success rate, which could lead to being given the green light more this season. Strikeouts are Outman's primary concern since his 44th percentile hard-hit rate doesn't support maintaining the .343 BABIP Outman registered last season. He doesn't chase much, but when he swings at pitches out of the zone, his contact rate is terrible. This is fixable, especially since Outman's walk rate is above average, but he's a batting average liability until he can demonstrate more contact. This restricts him to the lower half of the Dodgers order, but with his power and speed combination, and the potency of the lineup, Outman is still a strong mixed league asset, just don't pay for upside that may not immediately manifest.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Sent to Triple-A

    The Dodgers optioned Outman to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. The 27-year-old was called up by Los Angeles in early July but will return to Triple-A as Jason Heyward (knee) returns from the injured list. Outman's latest stint in the majors didn't go particularly well, as he went 3-for-15 with eight strikeouts in nine games.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: On bench against lefty again

    Outman is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies. Since his call-up from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday, Outman has now started in two of the Dodgers' five games. The last two absences have come while the Dodgers have faced left-handed pitching, so the lefty-hitting Outman could still be poised to occupy the larger side of a platoon in the outfield with Miguel Vargas while Jason Heyward (knee) is on the injured list.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Rejoins big-league club

    The Dodgers recalled Outman from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. With Jason Heyward (knee) headed for the injured list, Outman will get the call back to Los Angeles in order to replenish the Dodgers' outfield depth. Since being demoted to Triple-A in May, the 27-year-old has slashed .285/.396/.556 with 10 homers and 22 RBI in 182 plate appearances. He isn't likely to see regular playing time while Heyward is sidelined, but there's a chance Outman makes an occasional start against right-handed pitchers in order to give one of the Dodgers' usual starters a breather.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Sent to Triple-A

    The Dodgers optioned Outman to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday. After a successful 2023 campaign, Outman has struggled mightily to begin 2024, slashing just .147/.250/.266 across 124 plate appearances. He'll now look to get back on track in the minors, though a significant turnaround would likely be required before the Dodgers consider calling him back up. Outman's demotion likely spells consistent playing time in center field for Andy Pages and clears a roster spot for Jason Heyward (back) to return from the injured list.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Swipes second bag

    Outman went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, a run and a stolen base Tuesday in a 10-2 win against the Giants. Batting out of the No. 9 hole, Outman reached base twice for the first time since May 4 and knocked just his second extra-base hit since April 24. It's been a struggle for the outfielder in his sophomore MLB campaign, as he's slashing a meager .155/.256/.282 with three homers, 10 RBI, two steals and a 31.6 percent strikeout rate through 117 plate appearances. He's gone 2-for-22 with 10 punchouts over eight games in May.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Batting ninth Monday

    Outman will start in center field and bat ninth in Monday's game versus the Marlins. Outman has mostly batted seventh this season, but he hit eighth in his last two starts and is now down in the nine spot for the first time since July of 2023. He entered play Monday hitting just .107/.219/.143 across his last nine contests.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Out versus lefty

    Outman isn't in the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday versus the Diamondbacks.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Gets Thursday off

    Outman is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals. With the Dodgers and Nationals concluding their series with a day game after a night game and with southpaw MacKenzie Gore on the bump for Washington, Outman is one of three lefty-hitting regulars who will get the afternoon off. Outman will be joined on the bench by Gavin Lux and Max Muncy.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: On bench vs. lefty

    Outman is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants. Outman started the previous four games -- including one start against a southpaw -- but the young outfielder will sit Wednesday with lefty Kyle Harrison pitching for San Francisco. Enrique Hernandez will take over in center field and bat seventh.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Enjoying strong spring

    Outman is slashing .429/.556/.929 with two home runs, four RBI, four runs, three stolen bases and a 3:6 BB:K through 17 Cactus League plate appearances. Half of Outman's six hits thus far have gone for extra bases, with two leaving the yard. He also leads Los Angeles with three thefts in spring play. Outman enjoyed an excellent spring last year too, which earned him a spot on the Dodgers' Opening Day roster and led to him settling in as the team's primary center fielder. He's expected to retain that role in 2024, and he'll be looking to build upon a strong rookie campaign that included a .248/.353/.437 slash line with 23 homers, 70 RBI and 16 stolen bases. Outman could show further growth by cutting down his 31.9 percent strikeout rate, though his 12.3 percent walk rate last year made the punchouts more palatable. The 26-year-old has his flaws, but his 20/20 potential makes him an intriguing outfield target in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Takes seat for Game 3

    Outman is not in the lineup Wednesday for Game 3 of the NLDS against the Diamondbacks. Enrique Hernandez will start in center field and bat seventh as the Dodgers aim to avoid a three-game sweep. Outman went 0-for-5 with a walk and three strikeouts over the first two games of the best-of-five series.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Clubs 22nd homer

    Outman went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Giants. Outman is still searching for a multi-hit game in September, having gone 12-for-66 (.181) this month. He's made up for the slump a bit with five homers and nine RBI over his last 21 contests, and he's still seeing most of the playing time in center field. Outman is up to 22 long balls, 68 RBI, 81 runs scored, 15 stolen bases and a .244/.351/.434 slash line through 145 games this year.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Not in lineup Thursday

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Clubs homer in win

    Outman went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Rockies. Outman's second-inning blast gave the Dodgers the lead for good in this contest. The outfielder had gone seven games without an RBI entering Saturday. He's hitting .344 (11-for-32) in August, a stretch that's raised his slash line for the year to .257/.362/.439 over 109 games. Outman has added 14 homers, 14 stolen bases, 51 RBI and 60 runs scored while seeing the bulk of the playing time in center field.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Reaches base four times

    Outman went 2-for-4 with two walks, a stolen base and a run in Tuesday's 10-3 win over the Orioles. Outman's National League Rookie of the Year campaign has lost some steam while his power has been largely gone for the past two and a half months. Since the beginning of May, Outman has produced just 11 extra-base hits (four home runs, seven doubles) in 59 games. Though his struggles for much of May and June looked as though they could result in a demotion to Triple-A Oklahoma City, Outman has at least shown improved contact hitting and on-base skills thus far in July. He's hitting .316 and owns a .435 OBP in 12 games this month while striking out at a manageable 26.1 percent clip, more than seven points below his season-long rate (33.6 percent).

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Clubs pair of homers

    Outman went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Tuesday's 9-7 loss to the Pirates. Outman went deep off Luis Ortiz in the second and fourth innings, ending the young slugger's 34-game homer drought. Outman has posted six multi-hit efforts over his last 15 games, batting .268 (15-for-56) in that span. The outfielder is up to 11 long balls, 40 RBI, 41 runs scored and eight stolen bases while slashing .236/.317/.429 over 287 plate appearances this season. He continues to see the majority of the playing time in center field.
