Waiver Wire – Week 17

Daulton Varsho, OF/C, ARZ (CBS: 22% rostered): Daulton Varsho has earned a back-to-back mention in the Waiver Wire, and for good cause. Last week we mentioned that an opportunity was at-hand. This past week Varsho seized that opportunity and had four consecutive two-hit games, homered in three consecutive games, and drove in eight runs while […]

Waiver Wire – Week 16

Daulton Varsho, C, ARZ (CBS: 12% rostered): One homer and two stolen bases to go along with a .473 OPS isn’t getting the job done. The DBacks traded Stephen Vogt this past week, effectively giving Varsho the catcher gig until the return of Carson Kelly. It’s audition time for Varsho and we better see a […]

Waiver Wire – Week 15

Joey Bart, C, SFG (CBS: 22% rostered): The left thumb contusion that sent Better Posey to the 10-day IL has resulted in Joey Bart getting the call. He went 2-for-5 with a run scored and RBI in his 2021 debut. How long will Posey be sidelined? The answer to that question is yet to be […]

Waiver Wire – Week 14

Elias Diaz, C, COL (CBS: 5% rostered): It hasn’t been a great season for the 30-year-old backstop, but he has feasted on both the Pirates and Cardinals pitching during the Rockies recent homestand. Four homers in four consecutive games this past week will attest to that fact. Jace Peterson, 1B/2B/OF, MIL (CBS: 4% rostered): Over […]

Waiver Wire – Week 13

Alejandro Kirk, C, TOR (CBS: 15% rostered): Alejandro Kirk was off to a solid start with three homers in his first 40 at-bats and then incurred a hip flexor at the end of April that sent him to the IL. He is heading off to Triple-A Trenton with a rehab stint in his immediate future. […]

Waiver Wire – Week 12

Cal Raleigh, C, SEA (CBS: 8% rostered): His amazing 23 game hitting streak concluded on Friday, but what an incredible start to the season for the 24-year-old backstop. Raleigh has slugged seven homers, driven in 23 runs, and is sporting a 1.037 OPS over 132 at-bats. Given that the Mariners haven’t been shy in calling […]

Waiver Wire Week 11

Max Stassi, C, LAA (CBS: 22% rostered): Max Stassi entered June with one homer and a .241 BA. At the end of play on June 12, he has a total of four homers and is sporting a .345 BA. He has been on a tear, to say the least, fueled by a 13-for-29 streak. Get […]

Waiver Wire – Week 10

Eric Haase, C, DET (CBS: 8% rostered): Eric Haase is flat out on fire. In his past three starts, he has hit five homers. The power is definitely real as evidenced by the 20+ homers he has hit in the past three seasons down on the farm, but nobody anticipated this kind of outburst. As […]

Waiver Wire – Week 9

Jorge Alfaro, C, MIA (CBS: 21% rostered): Alfaro returned this week after being out five weeks with a hamstring strain. He should get the bulk of the playing time moving forward. As recently as 2019 he hit 18 homers, making him worthy of a roster spot in two-catcher sets. Cesar Hernandez, 2B, CLE (CBS: 38% […]

Waiver Wire – Week 8

Waiver Wire – Week 8

Ji-Man Choi, 1B, TAM (CBS: 10% rostered): Ji-Man Choi was activated from the IL on May 16 and has been on a roll. In the six games since his return, he has hit for a .429 BA with two homers and eight RBI. If it is time to shore up your CI slot, Ji-Man is […]
