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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 31% of Fleaflicker Leagues

ANALYSIS: Moreland has continued to hit his way up the Texas Rangers‘ batting order. Thanks to his impressive play, Manager Jeff Banister has entrusted him with cleanup duties twice in the last three days. Most notably, these outings have come against Zack Greinke and Carlos Rondon, a righty and lefty respectively, showing that Moreland has become something more than just a platoon option in the eyes of his manager. Looking at his season stat-line it’s easy to see why. Moreland has delivered for the Rangers all season long, batting .303/.358/.514 with eight home runs, 33 RBI, and 20 Runs scored. He’s been even more impressive during the month of June, hitting .328 with three home runs, 15 RBI, and 10 Runs scored.

Looking ahead, the Rangers have a schedule which could very much play to Moreland’s strengths. After a tough series against Oakland, the Rangers will embark on a road trip to the hitters havens in Toronto and Baltimore. I especially look forward to seeing what the Rangers might be able to accomplish against the Jays’ feeble pitching staff. Especially if Moreland continues batting cleanup, these could be some prime matchups for fantasy owners.
