Erick Aybar (SS, LAA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

The Mechanic - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues

ANALYSIS: Aybar is putting up a respectable year and has gotten a hot recently.  His totals on the year (16 R, 11 RBI, 1 HR, 1 SB, .261 BA) have added up quite quickly over the past week (8 R, 1 HR, 5 RBI, 1 SB, .480).   Over this time Aybar's average has risen nearly 90 points.  Significantly, Aybar, who was batting 9th for much of the season's first 3 weeks, has been moved up and around the order recently, racking up 12 AB each in the 5, 6, and 7 holes.  As Aybar has produced, he's been rewarded with a higher lineup position, which has helped him produce even more.  Aybar makes for a good pickup in deep leagues if you have a struggling shortstop or middle infield like Chris Owings.
