BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 12% of Yahoo Leagues

ANALYSIS: Philadelphia Phillies catcher Cameron Rupp displayed solid power numbers for the Phillies last season, smacking 16 home runs over 105 games with a .195 ISO. This season through 32 games he’s hit four HR, carrying a .187 ISO. He has been especially useful over the past month. During that span, he has hit .283/.377/.500 with three HR and 10 RBI, occupying the seventh or eighth spot in the lineup. He has risen his walk rate by 7% this season from last, which has caused a nice bump in his OBP. He is a good source of power from the catcher spot while he’s hot, though his BABIP has dipped from .350 a few weeks ago to .323.

Rupp's power from last season has not shown up this season, but if it does, Rupp could be a nice addition to any team at catcher. A jump in walk rate is a key factor for any hitter's fantasy production and he is a very impressive player for OBP leagues. Those looking at him would not be thrilled about the fact that he is 0-for-9 over the last seven days, or his .148 batting average over the last 14 days, but he has walked four times over the last seven days to find a way to get on base. Adding Rupp in mixed leagues is a good idea, but he is a must-have in NL-only leagues and two-catcher mixed leagues.
