Adeiny Hechavarria’s stock is gaining some steam on the wire these days but it is time to sell.
Analysis: This is not the time of year to let batting average numbers be the single determining factor when picking up a player on the wire. Adeiny Hechavarria is batting .350 this season through ten games with 0 home runs and 1 steal. Adeiny hit .227 last year with a .072 Isolated Power. He also hit just 3 home runs and stole 11 bases in 148 games. This isn’t a fantasy player(even if he is a shortstop) that is going to produce consistently.
Adeiny never hit particularly well in the minors without ridiculous BABIP numbers. He doesn’t have the power at this point in his career(it will come) and keep in mind he was caught stealing 10 times last year in 21 attempts. Fast forward to this year and we have another red flag- Adeiny has 0 walks in 40 at bats.
Currently, Adeiny Hechavarria is available in 50-70% of fantasy leagues. Pass or sell… just don’t have him on your fantasy squad.
