Adam LaRoche (1B, CHW) - Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target as Corner Infielder or Late Round First Baseman

ANALYSIS: Adam LaRoche is not considered one of the big name run producers, but he has shown consistency throughout his entire career. His career slash line is .264/.340/.472 and he averages 27 HR and 92 RBI over 162 games. In 2015, LaRoche’s fantasy value will be boosted by the players around him. He will hit clean-up in a potent, revamped White Sox offense, behind three .300 hitters-- Adam Eaton, Melky Cabrera and Jose Abreu. Plus, Abreu's success last season will cause teams to pitch around him and challenge LaRoche. LaRoche’s best season came in 2012 when he slugged 33 HR & 100 RBI in a lineup that had six players hit at least 17 HR. He's been at his best when surrounded by other quality players. In Chicago, he can slide into a lineup littered with big names and concentrate on driving in runs. Left-handed power hitters such as Adam Dunn and Jim Thome have had success at the hitter-friendly U.S. Cellular Field over the past decade. Laroche will likely be drafted pretty late in most fantasy drafts, making him a decent sleeper candidate in deep leagues.
