Kelly Johnson (1B / 2B / 3B / OF, NYY) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Displaced Tigers Fan

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues.

ANALYSIS: Kelly Johnson is a jack of all trades for the Yankees this season and has position eligibility at 1B, 2B, 3B, and OF in Yahoo! Leagues. Johnson's early productivity makes him worthy of a roster spot in most (if not all) leagues. Through 47 AB for the Bombers he's hit 3 HR and driven in 7 RBI with an OPS of .805. Recent years suggest his numbers could taper off, but he will play half his games in Yankee Stadium this season, where lefty-swingers like Johnson often find the seats. Looking at Johnson as a .250 guy with 20 HR and 60+ RBI who can slot in at nearly any position, it's hard to make the argument against grabbing him in most 12+ team leagues.
