Darin Ruf (1B, OF, PHI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Chris Lacey - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues

ANALYSIS: Ruf is a dependable outfielder with a .262 batting average, eight HR and 13 RBI. He has also hit seven doubles since his call up. He should be started exclusively against right-handers, even though he's a righty himself, as he’s hit .313 against RHP while struggling to to a .147 average against lefties. Considering those splits, it may make more sense to look for a more consistent option, but if you play in a deep daily-lineup league, Ruf can be helpful with the right matchups. Also if you're looking for some cheap power off the waiver wire, Ruf has been hitting his fair share of home runs recently. Ruf probably won't hit for much average, but his power is legit.
