Stock Rising- Domonic Brown

Domonic Brown has 8 hits, 4 RBI, 1 home run and 3 runs over his last five games.

Analysis: Domonic Brown now has 7 home runs and 19 RBI this year making himself fantasy relevant for the first time in his career. His 7 bombs rank 14th most among all major league outfielders, his 19 RBI is 21st among outfielders. Brown’s biggest detriment to his fantasy game was always his batting average. This year he’s hitting a respectable .257 with a sub .280 BABIP, which means it could get better. He’s not walking at a higher clip nor is he striking out less… so what is the difference this year? Well, Brown is finally hitting lefties with consistency.

The twenty-five year old Brown is available in 30-70% of fantasy leagues nationwide. He won’t sustain his home run pace of 30 that he is currently on track for this year but you can expect around 20-25 by season’s end. He has yet to record a stolen base in 2013 but he has recorded 20 stolen bases over the last two years between the minors and majors. His stock is on the rise but he must contribute with his legs before he becomes a must own.
