There are a few hitters that are heating up and you should be looking their way if you need a waiver wire pickup. Both of these guys are coming off injuries, but with health, will help your fantasy team.
J.J. Hardy looks healthy and is finally getting back to what he was doing last season: hitting with authority. Milwaukee‘s shortstop had a 27-homer breakthrough season in 2007 but injuries have held him back so far. If he can stay healthy, 12-15 dingers will not be out of the question for the second half of 2008.
David DeJesus was tearing it up before rolling on a catcher’s mask in a home plate collision. He hit .366/4/19 in June, but he has a history of injuries, so your expectations should be tempered slightly. The 28 year-old Kansas City center fielder has often shown flashes of brilliance when he’s not spending time on the disabled list. But DeJesus brings a speed-power combination to the stadium night each night that he is up to the task.
