Alex Avila (C, DET) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Tyler Petagine - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues

ANALYSIS: After his game-winning, three-run shot against the Indians, Avila has now amassed three home runs in his last five games. With Miguel Cabrera hobbling and Prince Fielder slumping, the Tigers have discovered their newest offensive weapon. His .325 BA since the start of his recent hot-streak may be a bit flukey, but he still makes for a nice temporary option - especially if you're still looking for a Yadier Molina replacement off the waiver wire. Avila can be a HR and RBI boast when playing well, but statistically, he shouldn't be relied upon for much else.
