Why I Added Rhyne Hughes

Get to Know: Rhyne Hughes - Matt Lutovsky - Fantasy Source Fastball - Sporting News:

"Well, it's because of the 'Tip from a Pro' about Hughes from Ben Zobrist:

'Look for this up-and-coming, unheralded first baseman [Rhyne Hughes] by midseason. If they give him an opportunity to play, I think he will do well. I work out with him in the offseason, and I believe this guy is legit.'"

The former Tampa Bay Ray' porpsect hit 35 HRs between AA & AAA in 2009. When I saw Zobrist recommend him, I immediately thought, "Maybe Hughes is usign the same hitting technique Zobrist used."

In an AL-Only league, Hughes is a must add. There is a lot of time in mixed format though.
