Mike Leake (SP, CIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues

ANALYSIS: Mike Leake didn't get off to the start that some analysts thought he might this season, and as a result he's currently owned in only 48% of Yahoo Leagues. But his recent performance suggests you might want to snag him for your late season push. In his last ten outings, Leake has lasted 7 innings or more on six different occasions and collected 60 strikeouts in that timeframe. He owns a solid 3.42 ERA and a very nice strikeout to walk ratio of 3.41. If you're looking to add a solid starter to the middle of your rotation, Leake is a solid option who can help your ERA, WHIP, and K numbers in a hurry. At the very least, you should consider streaming him for his start this week against the inept Boston Red Sox offense.

For the majority of my life, I've been a Detroit Tigers fan surrounded by other Detroit Tigers fans. A few years ago, I moved from the Great Mitten State to central Illinois. Obviously, Tigers fans are few and far between here. In addition to writing for RotoBaller, I write on the blog Musings of a Displaced Tigers Fan. You can also find me on Bless You Boys frequently over the course of the season. Thanks for reading. I love talking about baseball, so I hope you'll join in the conversation.
