The outfield position has notoriously been the easiest spot to find talent on the fantasy baseball waiver wire. However, sometimes a star continues to slip through the cracks. To help you figure out which players to add, here are five outfielders that must be owned in every fantasy format.
Rasmus isn’t the flashiest player in the game, but he is having a very productive month of May. Rasmus has shockingly blasted four homers in the last seven games and has suddenly become a viable power option. Make sure this slugger is not sitting on the waiver wire, because he is hitting everything right now.
Since rejoining the team, Lagares has put together some impressive fantasy numbers. He has a .316 batting average through the first 20 games and he has shockingly added 10 extra-base hits (8 2Bs, 1 3B, 1 HR). Lagares has earned his spot as the team’s leadoff hitter and the 25-year-old is displaying some serious fantasy potential.
Ozuna has been a well-kept secret this fantasy season. His .270 batting average leaves something to be desired, but his power numbers have still been there. Ozuna has already crushed five homers to go along with 20 RBIs. He has secured a spot in the middle of Miami's productive lineup and will be a legitimate OF3 in all formats.
Markakis has been somewhat overlooked this year with all the attention on Adam Jones, Nelson Cruz, and Chris Davis. However, Markakis is riding a 14-game hitting streak and has quietly raised his batting average up to .305. He may have just 11 RBIs, but he will be get plenty of chances to drive in runs with Baltimore’s powerful lineup. Makakis is a must-own in all fantasy formats this year.
Byrd continues to fly under the radar this season, despite posting All-Star numbers. The veteran has a robust .311 batting average to go along with four homers and 22 RBIs. Even more impressive, Byrd has an incredible .452 batting average (19-42) over the last 11 games. Byrd should easily hit the 20 HR-80 RBI mark this season; so don’t sleep on this slugger much longer.
