Desperate for outfield help, Cleveland finally promoted its best in-house option. Mercado hit .294/.396/.496 with four homers and 14 steals prior to his call-up, so he offers plenty of fantasy appeal across the board. He has exceeded somewhat modest expectations by batting .270 with nine homers and nine steals in 76 big league games. Now batting second behind Francisco Lindor, he has gone from a deep-league add to a rookie worth rostering in leagues of all sizes despite hitting a proverbial rookie wall in August.
