Alejandro, Alejandro, not Fernando

Finally, Fantasy owners are starting to understand the value White Sox outfielder Alejandro De Aza brings to the table. He's been one of the most added players in Fantasy this season and with good reason. But he's still unowned in 23 percent of Fantasy leagues, so if you still have a chance to add him, then don't miss out.

De Aza had trouble breaking into the majors with the Marlins, primarily because of injuries, but he's proven to be a nice find for the Chicago. Since 2010, he's batting .311 with a .375 OBP, .508 slugging percentage and .883 OPS in 87 games for Chicago. He also has 16 stolen bases.

De Aza has three homers in 15 games to start the 2012 season. While his home run surge will likely slow down that doesn't mean De Aza still can't help Fantasy owners. He had a .309 average, .372 OBP, .479 slugging percentage and .851 OPS in 265 games at the Triple-A level. That right there shows De Aza can hit higher level pitching.
