Josh VanMeter (1B/2B/3B/OF, CIN) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 15% of leagues

ANALYSIS: Josh VanMeter is what some call a boring guy; he provides a little bit of everything when he plays, but nothing outstanding. Of course, he’s not terrible in any category either. While some will look the other way, this is exactly the type of guy you need. Over the last month, he’s had a 123 wRC+ to the effect of two taters, four stolen bases and a .316 batting average. His walk (10.2%) and strikeout (18.2%) rates get overlooked as well.

Even more enticing is his schedule for the week. I’m speaking not in regards to Miami and St. Louis pitching but more towards the eight-game slate, seven of which are righties. As I’m sure you can guess by mentioning it, VanMeter does well against opposite-handed pitching to the tune of a .312 average with 14RBI and four homers in 125 at-bats this year. Potentially locking in eight games of stats is very important as we head towards the finish line. Every individual stat counts.
