Raimel Tapia (OF, COL) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups


BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Leagues

OWNED IN: 5% of leagues

ANALYSIS: Raimel Tapia is one of the best platoon players out there right now. He’s hit better than most guys with consistent playing time. Case in point, he’s hit four homers, stole a base, and has a .314 batting average in the last two weeks.

This is the type of player you would want to start as much as possible. Well, that is unless you’re the Rockies. They seem to enjoy musical chairs with their lineup card bouncing from rookie to veteran. The one constant in that rotation seems to always be Ian Desmond; the guy hitting .188. Yes, I know he has 20/20 capabilities but he is well past his “best by” date.

Now with all that said, be careful with randomly throwing him in the lineup this week. His schedule is loaded with left-handed starting pitchers this week (5) and he’s only batting .222 against them. So, don’t blindly follow the recent stats and assume it will continue. He should be owned and used more, but this might not be the week he validates your allegiance.
