MLB Pickups of the Day for June 5th

  • We are getting into week 11 here in the fantasy baseball season. Last week I was on fire and recommended a few guys who are paying dividends if you scooped them up off free agency. I highlighted names such as Luke Raley, Bobby Miller, and Royce Lewis. This week we have a new group of players that we are going to get into! It features some names that I have mentioned on my Twitter over the past week (@Andrew_FBB)

    Jordan Walker

    Walker is one of the league’s best prospects in the past few years. He made the opening day roster for the club and in that first stint, he slashed .273 with 2 home runs, 11 RBI, and 2 stolen bases in 78 plate appearances. The Cardinals weirdly saw enough and sent him down to work on hitting the ball with more elevation. He struggled a bit in AAA but is back up with the club and I’m looking at him as the must-add of the week. He’s got a Max Exit Velocity of 113.9 MPH which is in the top 7% in the MLB. Being in the 89th percentile in sprint speed makes him an attractive power/speed combination at the very worst. Add him if he’s available.
