Latest Update Nate Schierholtz hits sixth home run Sat Jul, 26, 07:54 PM
Is gifted athletically: has speed and size, shows good power at the plate and throws rockets from right field. Hustles in the field and on the bases.
Flaws: : Needs more consistency overall, since he can be too streaky both as a hitter and as a fielder. Is also somewhat injury-prone. Doesn't hit lefties well.
Hopefully the home run will help him to break out of a slump that has plagued him for all of July. He has hit .159 since the start of the month. This is after a poor June in which he hit just .195. This was Schierholtz first home run since June 2nd. On the season Schierholtz is hitting .198 and will have to get his act together if he wants any playing time. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Well, if you're looking for a cheap, outfield play in your DFS lineups, this sure looks like it fits the bill. Analyst: Howard Bender
In typical fashion, Schierholtz will sit against a left-hander. Justin Ruggiano will take his spot over in right field with Junior Lake and Chris Coghlan rounding things out. Schierholtz will be available off the bench.Analyst: Howard Bender
Schierholtz enjoyed his three-games at Fenway Park, with two home runs, four RBI and three runs scored in the Cubs sweep of the Red Sox. However, he is hitting just .207 with five home runs and 11 RBI on the season, so continued production will be needed before gaining any lasting fantasy value. Analyst: Matthew Beck
