Looking for a hitter to jump start your offense? Here’s a couple of guys that could do just that.
Billy Butler is a young stud that is still trying to put it together. Kansas City sent him down to the minors for a month to see if he could straighten out his swing and he’s looking good since his return. He looks like he’ll be a 1B/DH-type and is probably done in the outfield, but the offense he brings is good stuff.
Adam LaRoche hit 74 points higher in the second half compared to the first have over the past two seasons and he’s getting on a tear. Pittsburgh‘s PNC Park is tailor made for his swing and another big second half may be on the way. Grab this guy if a power hitting first baseman can help your club.
Matt LaPorta will be traded tomorrow to the Cleveland Indians. Playing in the American League, he will finally have a position that suits his defensive ability: Designated Hitter. This kid has a great bat and will provide serious power for your team. Grab him now and he will make you look smart in September.
