Recommended Pickup

Bryan LaHair, 1B, CHC - LaHair is off to a great start this season, with a .348/.423/.696 line in eight games so far. The 29-year-old has shown some big time power in the minor leagues for the Mariners and Cubs and is finally getting a chance to show what he can do in the majors. Last year, for the Cubs' Triple-A affiliate, LaHair posted a .331/.405/.664 line with a whopping 38 home runs. If you're looking for a cheap source of power, LaHair should provide it as a regular option in the Cubs' lineup against right-handed pitching.
