Orioles | Nate McLouth hot in leadoff spot

Baltimore Orioles OF Nate McLouth reached based four times via a single, double, walk and a fielder's choice Thursday, April 25, and he's hitting .444 (8-for-18) over his last six games in the leadoff spot. "I'm swinging at good pitches, that's what I'm most happy about," McLouth said. "I'm working the count and swinging at the pitches I want instead of having to swing at what a pitcher wants." McLouth also stole a base and drove in two runs. He has reached base safely in 16 of his last 25 plate appearances.

Fantasy Tip: Yes, it's a small sample size, but McLouth looks comfortable in the leadoff spot and is seeing the ball well. He may be worth riding in deep mixed leagues with five outfield spots.
