Christian Yelich (OF, MIA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Tyler Petagine - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately

ANALYSIS: The Marlins' most prized minor-league possession has finally been promoted. Making his long-awaited debut Tuesday Night against the Rockies, Yelich didn't waste time making his presence felt. He finished 3-4 with 2 RBI, singling in his first 3 major-league at-bats. An extra base-hit would have been nice, but it was a successful performance nonetheless. The 21 year-old prospect is an elite talent with "20-30" upside (prime years). While expectations should be slightly modified, Yelich's power/speed potential is simply too enticing to pass up. Assuming he is a big-leaguer for rest of season, this is a player who could produce Alex Gordon-type numbers. Oh yeah, and batting behind slugger, Giancarlo Stanton, surely helps his chances.
