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. […]

Waiver Wire – Week 3

Joey Bart, C, SFG (CBS: 19% rostered): Currently there are 34 catchers with ten or more at-bats. Of those 34 catchers, 16 are currently hitting below the Mendoza line. Only 11 have a BA of .250 or better. A callup for Joey Bart is likely still a couple of weeks down the road, but when […]

Waiver Wire – Week 2

Asdrubal Cabrera, 2B/3B, WAS (CBS: 32% rostered): It would appear that we’ll have to wait a while for full-time at-bats from Carter Kieboom. That day will eventually arrive, but for now, it appears that Asdrubal Cabrera will get the bulk of the at-bats at third base for the Nationals. Victor Caratini, C, CHC (CBS: 11% […]

Waiver Wire – Week 1

It has been a long time since most of us drafted our 2020 teams and a lot has happened in the interim. There is no shortage of options available this week to round out Fantasy squads. Power, speed starting pitching, and the usual mix of closers are all available. Spend wisely and spend lots this […]

Relievers to the Rescue

We’re heading into a season the likes of which we’ve never witnessed. Spring Training in July? What does that mean for the pitching component of our game? Will we see six-man rotations? Will starters, at least initially, be looking at shorter stints on the hill? The Tampa Bay Rays model of using an opener could […]
