Taylor Motter (SS/OF, SEA) - Waiver Wire Pickups


BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 19% Yahoo Leagues

ANALYSIS: For a team looking to rebuild with youth, you'd think the Rays wouldn't be so keen to give away power-hitting infield prospects before the season even started. Nick Franklin and Taylor Motter were both ditched by the team and may find themselves with successful careers in new homes.

Motter has already gotten started by hitting five home runs with 12 RBI in just 51 at-bats. He's slugging an impressive .667, which currently is second the AL. Not bad for a temporary replacement. Motter will slide out of the shortstop spot as soon as Jean Segura returns, but he could find a home at first base or outfield. If he keeps hitting like this, the Mariners will find a way to keep him in the lineup.

He is worth adding in 12+ team mixed leagues to see how this plays out, and to ride the hot wave for a player who could emerge for fantasy owners.
