Conor Jackson, OF, Arizona Diamondbacks

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Conor Jackson
Jackson is back in action

Jackson was activated from the DL Sunday. The 28-year-old didn't impress much before hitting the sidelines but reached base in all 11 games for which he was healthy. Co-Jack boasts top-notch contact and walk rates hitting near the top of a scorching lineup; his 20-homer, 80-RBI potential would fit well as a No. 5 mixed outfielder.

NL-only: Acquire

Jody Gerut, OF, Milwaukee Brewers

Carlos Gomez (rotator cuff) has a strained rotator cuff in his left shoulder, and his baseball activities have been halted. Gerut, who hit for the cycle Saturday, might be in line for more PT if Gomez were to miss more time, especially since he can play every outfield spot; Jim Edmonds' early-season shine has dulled, and Corey Hart remains shaky.

In two straight years of regaining some roto relevance, Gerut proved vulnerable against lefties but made for a decent straight platoon fantasy player. A similar capacity with expanded playing time could buttress your deep outfield.
