Ryan O'Hearn (1B, KC) - Week 25 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 10% of leagues

ANALYSIS: Kansas City Royals first baseman Ryan O’Hearn continues to surprise and give the Royals hope that there are some young bats that can turn this organization around quicker than expected. Power. He is giving you nearly a homer a week. It starts with a 49% hard-hit rate combined with a 43% fly ball rate. Then you see a .632 slugging and then all you need is a decent contact rate (70%). If O’Hearn can keep his 15% walk rate and a 27% strikeout rate, he can be a quality producer on your fantasy squad.

Like a couple of other players this week, O’Hearn will spend a full slate on the road. He will head to Pittsburgh and Detroit this week, where he will face off against five righties and two lefties. He will enjoy that schedule as he is batting .360 with nine homers and 23 RBI against right-handed pitchers. VERY IMPORTANT: Do not leave him in your starting lineup against the two left-handers. He is only hitting .032 in 31 at-bats.
