Waiver Wire – Week 3

Waiver Wire – Week 3

Alejandro Kirk, C, TOR (CBS: 24% rostered): Danny Jansen is currently mired in a 2-for-28 funk with no homers and RBI’s. The Jays will only tolerate his inability to hit for so long before Alejandro Kirk starts taking away at-bats. That time is fast approaching. It might have even arrived. Rowdy Tellez, 1B, TOR (CBS: […]

Waiver Wire – Week 2

Waiver Wire – Week 2

Wilson Ramos, C, DET (CBS: 30% rostered): 2020 was far from a banner year for the veteran backstop, but thus far in 2021 Ramos is returning to form and wielding a hot stick with three homers. Mid-teens power with a solid BA is there for the taking. Renato Nunez, 1B, DET (CBS: 3% rostered): Miguel […]

Waiver Wire – Week 1

Omar Narvaez, C, MIL (CBS: 37% rostered): 2020 was a total disaster, but the Brewers exercised patience and Narvaez has rewarded that patience with a strong Spring and a 3-for-8 start to the regular season. He did hit 22 homers in that 2019 breakout campaign. Max Stassi, C, LAA (CBS: 26% rostered): The concerns about […]

Fantasy Ranking of First Base

Fantasy Ranking of First Base

Freddie Freeman (ATL) – It was only 214 at-bats, but a .462 OBP and .640 SLG is bordering on insane. The NL MVP voters, got it right! Cody Bellinger (LAD) –  Twelve homers, 30 RBI, and six thefts isn’t all that bad for an off year. Toss in the outfield eligibility and hopefully a return […]

Waiver Wire – Week 9

Shogo Akiyama, OF, CIN (CBS: 15% rostered): In the past week Akiyama has gone 6-for-16 with a pair of stolen bases. He has also walked four times. It took a while, but the Akiyama we thought we were going to see out-of-the-gate appears to be finally arriving. Sherten Apostel, 3B, TEX (CBS: 3% rostered): In […]

Waiver Wire – Week 8

Luis Campusano, C, SDP (CBS: 8% rostered): In a bit of a surprise move, especially with the Padres adding Austin Nola and Jason Castro at the trade deadline, the Padres called up their “catcher-of-the-future” Luis Campusano and he promptly goes deep in his first game. Will Campusano get the playing time down the stretch? Not […]

Waiver Wire – Week 7

Anthony Bass, RP, TOR (CBS: 34% rostered): Jordan Romano has hit the 10-day IL with a finger issue and is likely to be lost for the next 2-to-4 weeks. This thrusts Anthony Bass back into sole ownership of the ninth inning for the Jays until the return of Ken Giles. Garrett Cooper, OF, MIA (CBS: […]

Waiver Wire – Week 6

Matt Barnes, RP, BOS (CBS: 27% rostered): The Red Sox moved Brandon Workman to the Phillies on Friday, and the logical option for the Red Sox would be for Matt Barnes to move into the closer role. Barnes promptly responded by blowing a save opportunity Saturday night and taking the loss. This could evolve into […]

Waiver Wire – Week 5

Jesus Aguilar, 1B, MIA (CBS: 47% rostered): In his past seven games, Aguilar has gone 11-for-29 with a homer and nine RBI. During this span, he has only struck out a total of three times. On the season he’s sporting a .302 BA. Why is he rostered in only 47% of the Leagues at CBS? […]

Waiver Wire – Week 4

Miguel Andujar, DH, NYY (CBS: 47% rostered): Just when we think that Miguel Andujar is headed for a potentially long stint at the “alternate” site, Giancarlo Stanton goes and pulls a hammy and is off to the 10-day IL. There’s at least a glimmer of hope that Andujar could find his way into regular at-bats. […]
