Billy Butler is likely the best player that you don't know anything about.
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
Are you looking for the last piece of the puzzle to put you over the top, or at least beat out your rival?
The hottest hitters over the last week were Mark Reynolds and Hanley Ramirez, but neither are going to be available for a waiver pickup.
However, No.3 on the list, IS available. He is Billy Butler, first baseman for the Kansas City Royals. He is likely the best player that you don't know anything about.
Over the past seven days (six games), Butler is batting a stunning .609 with six runs scored, two HRs and nine RBIs. He is slugging at a 1.087 pace and has an OPS of 1.730.
For the season Butler is batting .302 with 50 runs, 13 HRs, 57 RBIs and an OPS of .843. He's already set career highs in runs, HRs and RBIs. He's also owned in less than 40% of all leagues, so he's just a click of the button away.
Obviously, he won't keep up the pace of last week forever, but you might as well get in on the action while he's swinging a hot stick. History says that August is Butler's best month, so hop on the bandwagon and enjoy the ride.
