by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (6/16/2013) Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria produced two singles and drove in one run in four at-bats Sunday against the Cardinals. It was his second straight multi-hit game and fifth in his last 10 games.

Adeiny Hechavarria struggling since seven-RBI game

Adeiny Hechavarria flying under the radar
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer (5/20/2013) In 107 at-bats this season, Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria is sporting a rather unimpressive line: .206 average, two home runs and a .628 OPS. But over his last eight games, Hechavarria is hitting .300, with two triples and three runs scored. He has hit first or second in eight of his last 11 games. He leads the majors in triples (five) and has mentioned that he strategically plays to Miami's large park, expecting more extra-base hits as the season progresses.
Hechavarria has failed to steal a base this season, but he does play every day and seems to be getting more comfortable in the second spot of the batting order. Additionally, he's eligible at shortstop and third base. I wouldn't drop a Rickie Weeks for him in a mixed league, but an NL-only owner may want to look a little deeper at the 24-year-old's recent production and consider Hechavarria for a middle infield spot.
