Matt Joyce (OF / DH, TB) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Scott McCloy - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues

Ownership: Yahoo - 28%, ESPN - 51%

ANALYSIS: Matt Joyce is a veteran outfielder for the Tampa Bay Rays that is off to a hot start in 2014, and should be considered off the waiver wire.  Joyce plays the corner OF spots as well as DH, all in a platoon situation.  Joyce is a left handed hitting sleeper and he is killing righties to a tune of .328 AVG.  His overall OBP of .438 has him 5th in all of baseball and 3rd in the American League.  His BB/K ratio is 1.07 (16 BB / 15 K) which was helped by a recent 5 walk performance, a new Rays record.  Joyce is seeing the ball really well this year, seeing 4.28 pitchers per plate appearance, a career high.  Joyce has 2 HR and 15 RBI, which is just as many RBI as Miguel Cabrera and his teammate Evan Longoria.  There may be a little regression, but plug him in against righties right now and ride him while he is hot.
