And I do mean SCORCHING!
I probably should have posted this earlier this week, but I guess I didn't want to jinx it. Oh well.
This guy (and his 22:14 BB:K ratio, yes, that's BB:K, not K:BB) has spent the past 8 games regressing to the mean after hitting .222 to start the year out. He now sports a .277 BA and has had multiple hits in 7 of his last 8 games. Yowza. If you'd like, you can go back further and see that for the month of May, he's hitting .308/.416/.462, and that was before he added three more hits, including a 2B and a HR tonight.
Now, I know, many will scoff at the idea of picking up a 1B with a mere 3 HRs on the season. But let's all try to remember that this guy was a top-rated prospect going in to 2006, hits in a hitter's park, and has already demonstrated significant improvement in his periferrals. At this point, I'd look at him as an add-and-wait in standardy 12-team Yahoo! formats, and as an immediate start in deeper/NL-only leagues.
And while I'm on the topic of former-top-prospect, possibly-light-hitting 1B from the West who started slow but are now making a surge, Casey Kotchman is probably also worth a look.
