  • Matt McLain Records Two Hits Saturday

    Headshot for Matt McLain

    Cincinnati Reds rookie shortstopMatt McLainwent 2-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's 8-5 victory over Chicago Cubs. McLain's average on the season is now up to .333, and his OPS is .979. The 23-year-old is slashing .333/.423/.556 with two home runs, seven RBI, 12 runs, and six walks across 52 plate appearances in 2023. He won't stay hot forever, but the rookie sure is sensational at the dish right now. He occupies a prime lineup spot as the No. 2 hitter in the order, and Cincinnati is unlikely to move him around in the batting order while he's hitting like this. Fantasy managers should add McLain in all league formats.

It's a solid lineup placement for the 23-year-old, who is the Reds' No. 5 prospect, per MLB Pipeline. He'll also have a nice matchup against Seabold in one of the best hitting parks in the big leagues. McLain was hitting .346 with 12 home runs and 10 stolen bases in 168 plate appearances at Triple-A Louisville before being called up, and his power/speed combination should be intriguing for fantasy managers looking for some middle-infield help.

McLain, 23, is slashing a robust .348/.474/.710 with 12 homers and 10 steals in 138 at-bats at Triple-A Louisville. The Reds will likely give him plenty of playing time since Jose Barrero has disappointed and they will want to see what they have in McLain. He has a nice power/speed combo that could play well in fantasy and should be added for his high upside in most leagues.
