Pickup Recommendations:

Coco Crisp: Crisp is still available in many formats and plays fairly regularly. He has picked up 2 stolen bases in his last 3 games.

Jerry Hairston: He is healthy again and can steal bases. Keep on eye on how much playing time he is receiving, as the Reds may want to go with youngsters the rest of the way.

Gregor Blanco: If you are absolutely desperate for steals in NL-only leagues and cannot move much either way in any other category, then you can try Blanco. He could be good for a handful of steals the rest of the way, 12 on the year, but he won’t contribute in any other category, 1/35/.252 in 412 AB.

Nick Punto: If you are absolutely desperate for steals in AL-only leagues and cannot move much either way in any other category, then you can try Punto. He could be good for a handful of steals the rest of the way, 11 on the year, but he won’t contribute in any other category, 2/25/.285 in 281 AB.

Willie Harris: Harris is under owned in fantasy leagues despite showing nice power/speed numbers, 13 HR/10 steals in 331 AB. Just be prepared for some batting average downside, .248 on the year.

Rajai Davis: Davis is actually seeing playing time; he has started 5 of the last 6 games for the A’s. As long as he plays, he will get some steals, 3 steals during that same time period.

Nelson Cruz: Who knew Cruz was such a power/speed threat? Since being called up, he has 3 home runs and 3 steals in 49 AB. He is just continuing what he did in the minors this year, 37/99/.342 with 24 steals.
