BALLER MOVE: Add in Most Leagues

ANALYSIS: There’s no surprise with what you’re going to get from Juan Francisco.  The dude has raw power but will strike a lot and is sub-par with the glove.  Fortunately for the Jays - and his fantasy owners alike – Francisco has shown more patience at the plate and the result is paying off.  Since his insertion into the regular lineup in mid-April, the Blue Jays have been amongst the highest scoring offenses in the majors.  Francisco is on pace to set career highs in R, HR, RBI, OBP and WAR.  Nearly 43% of all his batted balls are going for fly balls and of those fly balls, nearly 30% are going for home runs.  If he can further cut his strikeout rate, it’s not unreasonable to think Francisco could be a 30-35 HR guy.  He’s a great option to add off the waiver wire, however those of you in points leagues need to be wary as he’s still striking out a lot and committing his fair share of errors.

"Put Neidermeyer on it, he's a sneaky little [you know what] just like you." It's true that Rotoballer's nedimyer isn't as spiteful or despised as Faber College's Neidermeyer (he thinks), but he just may be as arrogant when it comes to his South Carolina Gamecocks. Debate him in fantasy baseball without using advanced metrics and you may just end up in double secret probation.
