BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues
ANALYSIS: In the last seven days, LaRoche has been very strong at the plate putting up ten hits in 26 AB, three of which were doubles, along with 7 runs, 3 HR and 4 RBI while taking five walks. His batting average over the last week has been .385, which is fantastic and shows he's seeing the ball very well right now. LaRoche is one of the older players on the Nationals roster at 34 years old, and the lefty first baseman has provided a boost for the Nats that is much needed heading into the playoff hunt. The Nationals, at the top of the NL East currently, have not been playing their best as of late. This timely hot streak at the plate for LaRoche definitely flags him as a guy to snag in most leagues if he’s available on the waiver wire, and he should be started if he is on your team for the foreseeable future.
