Player Outlook
Ke'Bryan Hayes had some up and down moments in 2023. Hayes took forever to get things going hitting .221 with just 2 homers through the end of May before waking up to hit .337 with 3 homers in June alone. An early back injury in July shelved him until mid-August and he returned with aplomb hitting .299 with 10 homers the rest of the way. His 15 homers in 2023 were just three fewer than he hit from 2020-2022, but his 10 steals was half of what he did the previous season at a time when most guys saw their totals jump a bit. He made positive gains in elevating the ball more frequently while not sacrificing his ability to make contact as he lowered his strikeout rate for a fourth consecutive season. Hayes has the tools to be a 20-20 player in 2024 if he can continue his growth from the late summer and get back to running. Either way, he feels prime for the breakout season many have wanted from him each of the past two seasons.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Nearing next steps

    Hayes (back) has been hitting on the field and will run the bases Sunday, MLB.com reports. Assuming he feels well after Sunday's activity, Hayes will meet with manager Derek Shelton to determine his next steps. That would presumably either be activation from the injured list or a rebab assignment.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Resuming activities Monday

    Hayes (back) will resume baseball activities Monday, Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The plan is for Hayes to play catch and field grounders Monday before swinging a bat Tuesday. Hayes landed on the injured list last weekend with a back injury which had been nagging at him for a while, but it sounds like he's feeling better after a little rest. He could make it back before the end of the month if all goes well.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: To IL with back issue

    Hayes was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a back issue, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports. Hayes hasn't played since Tuesday amid a 3-for-30 slump, and perhaps the back issue is part of the reason he's only hit one home run in 35 games. Alika Williams is getting the call from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: On bench Friday

    Hayes is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Cubs. Hayes is mired in a 2-for-26 slump and will sit Friday for the second consecutive contest. Jared Triolo will shift to third base while Nick Gonzales, freshly promoted from Triple-A Indianapolis, starts at the keystone.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Sitting Wednesday amid slump

    Hayes is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels. Hayes will get a breather for the series finale after he had started in each of the Pirates' last 11 games.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Slugs first homer

    Hayes went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Giants.

The third baseman has now registered two hits in back-to-back games and in three of his last six overall, batting .333 (8-for-24) over that stretch.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Not in Thursday's lineup

    Hayes is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Brewers, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports. Hayes looks to be getting some routine maintenance for a day game after a night game.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Back in action Friday

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Held out with back tightness

    Hayes (back) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets. Hayes was a late scratch ahead of Tuesday's 3-1 loss due to lower-back tightness, so it's not a surprise he's not ready to play in the series finale Wednesday. He missed about a month of action last season with the same injury and still has to manage back issues on occasion. At this point, he's considered day-to-day. Jared Triolo will start at third base Wednesday in place of Hayes.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Scratched from lineup

    Hayes was scratched from Tuesday's lineup versus the Mets. Hayes was initially slotted to start at third and hit third Tuesday. Oneil Cruz will enter the lineup at shortstop and bat seventh with Jared Triolo shifting to Hayes' position and spot in the order. The reason for the 27-year-old's removal from the Pirates' lineup is not yet clear.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Four consecutive multi-hit games

    Hayes went 2-for-5 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored Sunday against the Marlins. Hayes has hit third in all four of Pittsburgh's games and has tallied two hits in each contest.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: On base three times Friday

    Hayes went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, two runs scored and an RBI in Friday's 7-2 win over the Marlins. The third baseman had an uncharacteristically rough night in the field, committing two errors, but Hayes made up for it with his bat. He's 4-for-7 to begin the season with two doubles and three walks, and if the improved launch angle he flashed in the second half of 2023 proves to be a permanent adjustment, Hayes has the athletic talent to deliver a 20-20 campaign or better.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Showing power early in spring

    Hayes has hit two home runs and a double across his first 14 Grapefruit League at-bats. Hayes is locked into every day playing at third base thanks to his tremendous defense, but his fantasy value will turn on his ability to hit for power and swipe bases. He took a step forward in the former category in 2023, improving his average launch angle to 13.2 degrees, which resulted in a career-best .182 ISO. He's seemingly carried that approach over into his early at-bats this spring and could be in for a solid regular season while occupying a key position in the Pittsburgh lineup.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Hayes is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Marlins. Hayes went 2-for-5 with two doubles and a run in Saturday's loss to Miami, which will end up being his final start of the year.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Supplies only offense in rout

    Hayes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 14-1 loss to the Cubs. The third baseman spoiled Chicago's shutout bid by taking Javier Assad deep in the third inning. Hayes is wrapping up a big second-half breakout, and since coming off the IL in early August, he's slashing .309/.349/.562 through 40 games with nine of his 14 homers on the season -- a power pace supported by his 93rd percentile average exit velocity, 89th percentile hard-hit rate and career-best 13.1 degree launch angle and 39 percent flyball rate in 2023.

Hayes is up to a career-high 12 homers on the campaign, five more than he hit over 560 plate appearances last season.

  • Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Reaches five times in victory

    Hayes went 4-for-4 with a double, a walk, a run and an RBI in Monday's 5-0 win against the Royals. Hayes reached safely in each of his five plate appearances, finishing with his fourth career game of at least four hits.
