  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Slugs fifth homer

    Rice went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run Tuesday in a loss to the Rays.

    Rice brought New York to within a run with his two-run shot in the seventh frame, but the team was unable to score again. The rookie first baseman continues to thrive in the majors, as he's slashing .267/.348/.567 with five home runs, three doubles, nine runs and 14 RBI over just 19 contests covering 69 plate appearances. All five of Rice's homers and 10 of his RBI have come over his past five games.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Homers three times in win

    Rice went 3-for-5 with three home runs and seven RBI in a 14-4 win over the Red Sox on Saturday.

    Rice opened the scoring with a leadoff home run in the first inning and added three-run blasts in the fifth and seventh. According to Bryan Hoch of, Rice is the first rookie in Yankees history with a three-homer game. The 25-year-old is hitting .294 with four home runs and 12 RBI through his first 60 major-league plate appearances while earning opportunities to hit atop one of the league's best lineups.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Slugs first big-league homer

    Rice went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in a loss to the Reds on Thursday.

    Rice hit out of the leadoff spot for the first time as a major leaguer and produced his first big-league home run with a 407-foot solo shot in the fifth inning. The catcher/first baseman has some intriguing qualities befitting of the leadoff role -- he's demonstrated good plate discipline throughout his professional career and has a .360 OBP along with a 7:8 BB:K through 42 plate appearances with the Yankees. Rice's power is an asset too; he hit 15 long balls in 60 minor-league games this season after going deep 20 times in the minors last year.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Elevated to leadoff spot

    Rice will start at first base and bat leadoff in Thursday's game versus the Reds.

    The Yankees have dropped the struggling Anthony Volpe down to the No. 6 spot in the batting order and Rice will receive the first opportunity in Volpe's old slot. Rice is slashing .270/.378/.351 with a 6:7 K:BB in his first 14 contests in the majors. Certainly, it would be a major boost for his fantasy prospects if he can manage to stick at the top of the Yankees' lineup.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Absent from lineup

    Rice is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Reds.

    With southpaw Andrew Abbott on the hill for the Reds, the Yankees are going with right-handed-hitting J.D. Davis at first base. The left-handed-hitting Rice has now started one of four games versus lefties since Davis was acquired.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Sitting against southpaw

    Rice is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against Toronto.

    The lefty-hitting Rice will get a breather as southpaw Yusei Kikuchi takes the mound for the Blue Jays. Instead, J.D. Davis will get the start at first base and bat fourth.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Idle against lefty

    Rice is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets.

    With J.D. Davis joining the Yankees roster, Rice is expected to enter the strong side of a platoon with Davis at first base. Rice will take a seat Tuesday for the first time since being called up June 18 as the Mets trot out southpaw David Peterson.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Logs first multi-hit game

    Rice went 2-for-3 in Sunday's loss to Atlanta.

    Rice was one of two Yankees with multiple hits in the contest, and it was the first multi-hit effort of his career. The 25-year-old started at first base for the fifth time in six contests since being called up, and three of those games have been against left-handed starters, against whom he's gone just 1-for-9. Rice has otherwise held his own overall in going 5-for-17 with a 3:3 BB:K, but he'll likely begin yielding some starts against southpaws to J.D. Davis, whom the Yankees acquired Sunday.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Not in Thursday's lineup

    Rice is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Orioles.

    Rice started at first base in each of his first two games after being promoted, going 2-for-7 with a walk. He'll begin this one on the bench, with DJ LeMahieu handling the cold corner and Oswaldo Cabrera the hot corner.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Added to roster, batting sixth

    The Yankees selected Rice's contract from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.

    Rice earned a call-up after slashing .275/.393/.532 with 15 home runs, nine stolen bases and a 56:40 K:BB over 268 plate appearances between Double-A Trenton and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He's a catcher and a first baseman but is in line to be used mostly in the latter capacity while Anthony Rizzo (arm) is sidelined. Rice will start at first base and bat sixth in his major-league debut Tuesday versus the Orioles.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Joining big-league roster

    The Yankees will call up Rice from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre ahead of Tuesday's game against the Orioles to replace Anthony Rizzo (arm) on the roster, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Rice has played 60 games this season between Double-A Trenton and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, slashing .275/.393/.532 with 15 home runs, nine stolen bases and a 56:40 K:BB over 268 plate appearances. The 25-year-old has split his time between catcher (28 starts) and first base (22 starts) and has also made an additional 10 starts at designated hitter. The Yankees could use Rice almost exclusively at first base, but for fantasy purposes, he may have catcher eligibility.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Bumped up to Triple-A

    The Yankees promoted Rice from Double-A Somerset to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday.

    The 25-year-old catching prospect will move up to the highest level of the minors after he slashed .261/.382/.511 with 12 home runs and eight stolen bases in 217 plate appearances for Somerset. Rice isn't on the Yankees' 40-man roster and looks to be behind Austin Wells, Jose Trevino and Carlos Narvaez on the organizational catching depth chart, so it may take an injury or two before Rice gets the chance to make his big-league debut.
