BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues

ANALYSIS: Believe it or not, Hefner has been the best pitcher on the Mets– and one of the best in all of baseball– since the beginning of June. In that timeframe, the righthander has a 1.64 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 37/8 K/BB ratio over 44 IP. Those are elite numbers in all formats, making it asinine that he’s sitting on the waiver wire in 49% of CBS and 81% of Yahoo leagues. Hefner is 27 years old, a prime age for a young pitcher to finally start putting it all together, so we could well be witnessing a legitimate breakout.
