Rajai Davis, Detroit Tigers, 15.5 percent owned
It can never hurt to add some speed to your lineup and Davis certainly fills that void, swiping an average of 43 bags per season over the past five years.
He doesn’t offer up much more than speed, but as the Tigers semi-regular left field to start the season, Davis has the chance once again to be a force on the base paths.
He’s hitting .345 to start the season with a homer and five steals already and is riding a seven-game hitting streak.
Pick him up now.
Garrett Richards, Los Angeles Angels, 14.6 percent owned
Richards can bring it.
That’s never been a question considering he averages over 96 mph with his fastball.
And while that has never translated to MLB success or even a high strike out rate (6.3 K/9 career), his last outing in which he dominated the Seattle Mariners through seven innings was very encouraging.
If Richards can hold a full-time spot in the Angels rotation this year he could wind up being a big surprise.
His next start is against the Oakland A’s. I would grab him for that start and hold onto him for a bit.
