Over the next ten days, we will be taking a look at players that can help you in each individual category for those of you that play in roto or H2H category leagues. This first installment will focus on the players that can help you in batting average.
I will provide three players for each position. One for standard leagues, one for moderate leagues, and one for deep leagues.
Keep in mind that a lot of these players will be one category wonders. For those of you in weekly category leagues, batting average can often come down to a couple of hits. These players can certainly help you out in weekly leagues more than roto leagues.
Devin Mesoraco, Reds: He’s baaaaaack. The hottest hitting catcher in baseball this season is still available in almost half of ESPN leagues. His name will pop up on my lists quite often until others catch on or start listening. He is hitting .460 with four homers, 16 RBI, and 11 runs scored. That is great production for any position.
Kurt Suzuki, Twins: Suzuki is hitting .353 over the last two weeks, raising his season average to .322. He has been incredibly consistent so far this year.
John Jaso, Athletics: Jaso only plays against righties, but he has produced a .382 average over 34 at bats over the last two weeks. On the bright side, you always know when he is going to play.
