Latest Update LaRoche smacks game-winning homer Monday   Tue Aug, 19, 12:21 AM

For LaRoche, Monday's home run marked his 236th long ball of his career, but just his first walk-off over a 10-year career. The Nationals first baseman is having himself a nice season, hitting .272 with 19 home runs and 67 RBI through 378 at-bats as he is now just one home run shy of reaching the 20 home run plateau for the eighth time in the last nine seasons. Until he proves otherwise, LaRoche should be owned in all fantasy formats down the stretch. Analyst: Matthew Beck

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   Has the look of a classic first baseman: big and strong with a power bat that produces lots of home runs and RBI. He also catches left-handed and is solid around the bag. Can draw a lot of walks.
Flaws:  : Will go on some big strikeout binges and lacks overall consistency at the dish. Also struggles to hit left-handed pitchers regularly. Has very little speed on the bases. Is prone to minor injuries.

    Adam LaRocke hits 18th home run
  • LaRoche has been as consistent as they come this season, now sitting on a .276 average with 18 home runs and 66 RBI through 370 at-bats. The Nationals first baseman is now just two home runs shy of reaching the 20 home run mark, which would be the ninth time in 10 years that he has reached that plateau, with the only year not reaching it being 2011 when he logged only 151 at-bats due to injury. There is certainly nothing flashing about LaRoche, but you know exactly what you are going to get from him on a yearly basis. Analyst: Matthew Beck

    Adam Laroche plates two runs in win for Nationals
  • LaRoche is now slashing .333/.440/.667 with four home runs and nine RBI in the month of August as he continues to have himself another solid season for the Nationals. Sitting with 17 home runs, LaRoche is only three homers shy of tying last season's total and should surpass that mark with no issues as long as his health can hold up down the stretch. There is certainly nothing flashy about his game, but he remains a must-start in all but the shallowest of leagues the rest of the way. Analyst: Matthew Beck

    LaRoche smacks 17th homer in win over Mets
  • LaRoche has caught fire during the month of August batting .318 with four home runs. The best part is that he has always been known as a second-half player, so that should bode well for him going forward. He will have no problem eclipsing 20 home runs for the 11th time in his career.Analyst: David Kerr
