Daniel Palka (1B/OF, CHW) - Week 26 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 15% of leagues

ANALYSIS: Chicago White Sox first baseman/outfielder Daniel Palka has been destroying pitching recently. He has six homers, nine RBI and a .273 average in the last 14 days. His 2018 rookie campaign has brought about 27 homers. Unfortunately, he does need to work on his plate discipline as he has a 33% strikeout rate. Also, he currently doesn’t use most of the field; he pulls the ball 44% of the time.

Palka will have a full seven-game schedule this week, which includes a double-header. The week starts at home against the Indians before he returns heads to Minnesota to face the Twins. It is a schedule loaded with right-handed pitchers. This is a perfect recipe for Palka; 25 of his homers this year have been against right-handers. Thankfully, he shouldn’t be too much of a drain on batting average with a .252 average against righties.
