Mitch Moreland (1B / DH, TEX) - Waiver Wire Analysis


BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 22% of Fleaflicker Leagues

ANALYSIS: Moreland is the kind of player who could have a MVP-caliber season and the world wouldn’t notice. While he hasn’t quite been an MVP, Moreland has been a surprisingly productive fantasy asset for the past several weeks. He is hitting .310/.366/.542 on the season with eight home runs, strong numbers from a player owned in less than a quarter of leagues. It’s also worth noting that three of those homers have come this month alone, during which time Moreland has delivered a .366 batting average to go along with them. With the Texas lineup in shambles, Moreland has etched out a position as the team’s cleanup hitter. Much like with Lind, a good cleanup hitter on a bad offense can still be a productive fantasy player. Moreland’s very much a ride the streak kind of guy, but while his bat is hot, he’s one of the first names I’d turn to if Lind is already off the board.
