Michael Brantley (OF, CLE) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Uncle Leo - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues Immediately

ANALYSIS: Given that Michael Brantley is already 68% owned in Yahoo leagues, its a bit of a stretch to call him a waiver wire pickup. But he's still one of those non-brand name under the radar sleepers that should be owned in all leagues, and still isn't. If Brantley is still available in your league, pick him up immediately. Last year he batted .284 with 10 HR, 17 SB, 73 RBI and 66 Runs - not to shabby for a 5th outfielder type. Today he hit his 4th homer in the last 7 games, to go along with 2 SBs. On the year he now has 4 HR, 18 RBI, 10 Runs and 2 SB while batting around .300 - stats of a #3 or #2 outfielder if he keeps it up. Brantley needs to be owned and started in every league format.
