SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE
Randal Grichuk left yesterday’s game early after fouling a ball off his face. It hit him around the mouth area and he was bleeding out of his mouth. The extent of the injury is not yet known but I would expect him to miss a few games but avoid the IL. Derek Fisher, the Blue Jays newly acquired outfielder, should get the extra playing time in his absence.
REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK
According to our projection, you can expect Randal Grichuk to be a bench player or a good option off the waiver wire. His 63.96 projected fantasy points puts him at #52 behind Wil Myers and ahead of Jackie Bradley. He has averaged 2.53 fantasy points in his past 242 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 2.63 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#94) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 50%, he is the #61 most highly owned outfielder. Randal Grichuk is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #37 fantasy position rank.
