Line of the Day: May 4th, 2011

OF Nate McLouth of the Atlanta Braves reached base in all eight of his plate appearances, going 5-for-5 a double, a two-run home run and three walks, in a doubleheader sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers. He had nine total bases and also scored four runs.

Line: 3 AB, 2 R, 3 H, 0 RBI; BB
Line: 2 AB, 2 R, 2 H, 2 RBI; HR, 2 BB

My fantasy perspective: McLouth came into the season on many "sleeper" lists but a slow start to the season got him dumped to the number eight spot in the batting order. Since then (12 games), he's batting .462 (18/39) with his only two home runs. There may be new life for him as an ownable outfielder in deeper mixed leagues or very shallow NL-only ones. He's only 8.2% owned in ESPN leagues and 7% owned in Yahoo! leagues, so there's plenty of time to see if he stays hot.
