Lucas Duda hit a two-run homer, his first of the year, in helping the Mets beat the Padres on Wednesday.

Duda is a post-hype sleeper of sorts after falling flat on his face in his expected "breakout" last year. He's in his age 27 season now and he's got some of the best raw power in the National League, so it's easy to imagine him rebounding to post 20-plus home runs in 2013. Deep-league players in search of cheap power could do worse than The Dude.
