Alex Rodriguez (3B/1B/DH, NYY) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper


BALLER MOVE: Draft Target in Late Rounds / Waiver Wire Pickup

OWNED IN: 59% of Yahoo Leagues

ANALYSIS: While folks everywhere were stoked about Lebron’s return to Cleveland, few were talking about the return of one of the greatest hitters of our era. Fresh off reinstatement due to his PED suspension, Alex Rodriguez is ready to take pitchers deep once again. Regardless of what we think of him, the numbers show that A-Rod is one of the greatest hitters of all time. And though it’s unrealistic to attach enormous expectations to him at 39 years old, he can still be valuable enough for a spot on your roster.

Through 19 spring training games, A-Rod hit for a solid .267 average, .377 on base percentage, .489 slugging percentage, with three HR. He’s quietly putting together a very useful spring training, yet is only owned in 59% of leagues. It still remains a question of how his body will hold up following a year away from the game, but his numbers are no joke. If you have an empty spot near the end of your draft, why not take a shot on someone who's been a proven fantasy producer in the past, and will be batting in a run producing spot for the Yankees? Otherwise, monitor his first few games of the season, as he could be worth an early waiver wire pickup.
