|Twins | Max Kepler becoming serious prospect|
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 11:15:11 -0700
Minnesota Twins OF Max Kepler has blossomed from a project to a complete hitter at Class AA Chattanooga this year, hitting .336 with a .940 OPS and three home runs, eight triples and 22 doubles in 64 games. He's also walked nearly as often as he has struck out, and he hit .364 with a 1.052 OPS in June. Kepler, a lefty swinger, has expanded his approach at the plate to become more assertive, especially when it comes to pulling the ball. He has more of a line-drive swing but has added power after tacking on 10-15 pounds over the years. He has also shown improvement against lefties, with a .910 OPS against them in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: Kepler is still far away from a major-league call-up, but he's worth keeping an eye on in dynasty and keeper leagues.
