(6/6/13) White Sox outfielder Alejandro De Aza pushed his hitting streak to seven games Wednesday against the Mariners with two hits. De Aza is batting .367 (11 for 30) with a double, four walks, five runs and five RBI during his hitting streak.
De Aza's streak comes after a 5-for-35 slump, which dropped his season average to .239. De Aza has since pushed his average to .257.
|White Sox outfielder Alejandro De Aza took a huge leap in playing time last season, going from an average of 86 at-bats in parts of four previous seasons to 524 at-bats in 131 games with Chicago. He put up solid numbers in the full-time role, with a .281 batting average, nine home runs and 26 steals (although he was caught stealing 12 times, fourth-most in MLB). This all added up to De Aza finishing 86th among batters in 2012, ahead of players like Mark Teixeira, Desmond Jennings and Pedro Alvarez. There's probably not a ton of room for growth here, as De Aza's power is likely topped out at nine or 10 home runs, and with him getting thrown out with regularity, the team may try to curb his basepath activity. The two areas where he may improve are batting average (he could maybe reach .295) and doubles (he had 29 last season). A good player who will neither carry your team on his back nor hurt it, De Aza, who makes for a lower-end outfield starter in leagues that carry five outfielders, should be taken in the company of the Michael Brantleys and Colby Rasmuses of the world in the later rounds of your drafts.
