Erick Aybar (SS, LAA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Chris Lacey - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues

ANALYSIS: Aybar is having a solid season with him hitting .287 in 349 at-bats to include 25 extra-base hits and 136 total bases. He has 100 hits on the season with four homers and 39 RBI. If he were running as often or as well as he has in the past, he would be a no-brainer add in any format, but the lack of elite-level stolen bases really hurts his value. The shortstop is hitting .304 against right-handers and has a .313 batting average in his last 13 games with 15 hits. He knows how to handle the bat with runners in scoring position, as indicated by a .308 average and 34 RBI. He can definitely help at a thin position, but don’t expect last season’s SB numbers.
