Harrison Bader (OF, STL) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Leagues

OWNED IN: 31% of leagues

ANALYSIS: Harrison Bader had a rough start to the season as he was hamstrung by injury. When he has been on the field, he performed poorly particularly in the form of an increased strikeout rate (31%) and a reduced contact rate (70%). However, in the last week, he’s resembled a player the Cardinals hoped would man the center field position permanently. Also, the Cardinals cleared the path by sending Tyler O’Neill to Triple-A.

Bader has hit .350 with a homer in 19 at-bats. He will have a full schedule at home this week hosting the Phillies and Pirates as he looks to expand those numbers. During those games, he’s expected to face all right-handed starting pitchers.

Unfortunately, he is a career .235 hitter against righties. While this week isn’t as optimal as most, Bader is an add in deep leagues as he still possesses power and speed. He also benefits from having reliable playing time in a lineup that will generate plenty of runs.
