Ricky Nolasco (SP, LAD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Somehow Ricky Nolasco is still available in many many Yahoo leagues, and that's just mind boggling. For the year, he's rocking a 3.26 ERA / 1.16 WHIP with 12 wins and decent Ks. Over the last 30 days, Nolasco is sizzling hot - with a minuscule 1.37 ERA / 0.89... Read More

6 years ago

Matt Adams (1B, STL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Allen Craig twisted his ankle last night, and is going for an MRI today. Enter Matt Adams, who hit 2 home runs last night filling in for the injured Craig. Adams should see regular playing time at 1B for as long as Craig is out, and holds deep... Read More

6 years ago

Christian Yelich (OF, FLA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Yelich struggled out of the gate, but he has always been an extremely high-end prospect with big time upside. He's finally found his groove: over the past week in 25 AB, he's hit 1 HR with 4 RBI, 4 Runs and 3 SB all the while batting a nasty .480.... Read More

6 years ago

Eric Young (OF, NYM) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Eric Young is on fire recently with 4 SB, 8 Runs and a .355 BA over the past week. If you have some formerly hot slugger (Dom Brown, cough cough), and play in a non-keeper league, feel free to drop that dead weight for a hot player like Young. If... Read More

6 years ago


Ivan Nova (SP, NYY) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Nova was just dominant against the Orioles on the 31st. He pitched a CG shutout vs. a team that usually owns right handed pitching. Nova allowed just 3 hits and a walk to go along with 5 K, and he's now allowed more than 2 ER only once in his... Read More

6 years ago

Tyson Ross (SP, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Aside from a couple 4 ER outings, Ross has been dominant over his last 8 starts, not allowing more than 2 ER in the other 6 and racking up a filthy 58/15 K/BB ratio in just 51.1 IP. Ross pitches in the most friendly pitchers park in the big leagues... Read More

6 years ago

L.J. Hoes (OF, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting / Add In Deeper Leagues ANALYSIS: Seemingly a throw-in player for the deal between for Astros and Orioles for starter Bud Norris, L.J. Hoes is actually a former 3rd round pick who has just taken a little longer to get his opportunity in the Big Show. Now that he's landed in... Read More

6 years ago

Jonathon Niese (SP, NYM) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Jonathon Niese has been a bright spot for the Mets recently, dominating team after team since returning from his DL stint. Over his last 4 games, Niese has given up only 4 ERs over 27 2/3 IPs, while racking up an impressive 27 Ks. And over the last 30 days,... Read More

6 years ago

Brandon Moss (1B, OF, OAK) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Brandon Moss is still only owned in 48% of Yahoo leagues, and that number is just way too low. Moss has been ON FIRE for weeks now, and needs to be owned in all leagues, at least until he cools down. Over the past 30 days, Moss is batting .312... Read More

6 years ago


Taijuan Walker (SP, SEA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE:  Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Top pitching prospect Taijuan Walker has been called up by the Mariners, and he will make his major league debut tomorrow against the lowly Astros. Walker pitches in a great pitchers park, and his been filthy this year in the minors with a 2.93 ERA and 160 Ks... Read More

6 years ago

Coco Crisp (OF, OAK) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS:  Although he's had a somewhat disappointing 2013 season, Crisp has 4 HR, 5 RBI and 8 Runs in his past 5 games. He is ON FIRE right now and Coco's tears have been known to vault teams up in the standings. He brings a nice blend of production at the... Read More

6 years ago

Jarred Cosart (SP, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE:  Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS:  This kid is barely owned in standard leagues at the moment. And I get it, Houston has a rough schedule down the stretch. But if you are looking for a favorable matchup this week, or your league doesn't count Wins and relies on Quality Starts -- then adding... Read More

6 years ago

Jason Castro (C, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Castro wasn't drafted in most leagues, and he's now ranked #7 overall for Catchers in 2013. That should tell you all you need to know if you're in a league with more than 7 teams - he should be owned! Only 1 catcher (Rosario) has put up better numbers than... Read More

6 years ago

Zack Wheeler (SP, NYM) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Somehow Zack Wheeler is still only owned in 49% of Yahoo leagues, and that's just unacceptable. The young Mets phenom has been dominant recently, throwing quality start after quality start. His latest gem tonight was awesome, as he gave up only 2 ER over 6 2/3 IP, with only 6... Read More

6 years ago


Matt Dominguez (3B, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Dominguez is doing his thing again - hitting bunches of homers and driving in runs with a low BA. Over the past 8 days, he's jacked 4 bombs with 7 RBI and 8 Runs. With 18 HR on the year in 430 AB you know this 23 year... Read More

6 years ago

Jedd Gyorko (2B, 3B) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Gyorko is really mashing right now, and has been on a power binge recently. Over the past two weeks, Gyorko is rocking a .306 batting average, to go along with 6 HRs, 10 RBIs, and 7 Runs. And over the last 30 days, he's ripped 8 home runs. Not too... Read More

6 years ago

Darin Ruf (1B, OF, PHI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Ruf is a dependable outfielder with a .262 batting average, eight HR and 13 RBI. He has also hit seven doubles since his call up. He should be started exclusively against right-handers, even though he's a righty himself, as he’s hit .313 against RHP while struggling to to... Read More

6 years ago

Trevor Rosenthal (RP, STL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS:  When Jason Motte went down with an injury back in March, the Cardinals' closer situation seemed up in the air. It was a toss-up between Mitchell Boggs, Edward Mujica, and Trevor Rosenthal to see who would step into the ninth inning role. Eventually, Mujica won the job, but even for... Read More

6 years ago

Chris Archer (SP, TB) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Archer is pitching well with a 2.95 ERA and six wins on the season. He has struck out 62 batters, while walking 30. He is limiting teams to a .214 average, with right-handers just managing a .153 average against him. He has struggled a bit in his last... Read More

6 years ago


Jedd Gyorko (2B, 3B, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Gyorko is having a solid rookie campaign with 21 doubles and 14 HR on the season to go along with 37 RBI in 342 at-bats. The knock on him is plate discipline– he needs to develop some patience, as evidenced by his 85 strikeouts against just 22 walks.... Read More

6 years ago

Alex Wood (SP, ATL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Wood is having a good season for Atlanta with a 2.61 ERA and 51.2 innings pitched. He has only allowed one home run while striking out 57 batters, good for an elite 9.9 K/9. He has a WHIP of 1.02 and is limiting teams to a .215 batting average. Over... Read More

6 years ago

Sonny Gray (SP, OAK) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Gray is starting off his career in spectacular fashion with a 1.44 ERA in 25 innings pitched. He has displayed great command by striking out 27 batters and only walking seven. To this point, he has shut down the Astros and Mariners– by no means powerhouse offenses– but the way... Read More

6 years ago

Will Venable (OF, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Venable is flashing his power/speed combo for the Padres this season, with a .263 average, 39 extra-base hits and 14 stolen bases against just four caught-stealing. Over his last 21 games, he has a .352/.387/1.046 triple-slash with five HR and nine RBI, so he can definitely be an impact player... Read More

6 years ago

Brandon Belt (1B, SF) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Belt is finally hitting up to the level of his former top-prospect status, as the Giants envisioned he would. He has a .276/.352/.836 triple-slash with 15 HR and 50 RBI on the season. The young first baseman has 46 extra-base hits and 106 hits overall, making him a points-league dynamo.... Read More

6 years ago


Felix Doubront (SP, BOS) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: After shutting out the Giants tonight on the road to the tune of 8 IP, a 1.13 WHIP and the Win, it is safe to say that Felix Doubront is at least worth a flier in deeper mixed formats (as he is most likely 100% owned in your... Read More

6 years ago

Xander Bogaerts (SS, BOS) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Bogaerts is only 28% owned in Yahoo! leagues which is really low even for a guy who is only slated to play part time. Most of you have benches, and they should be used for guys like Bogaerts. He is a super-high-upside prospect and has the ability to... Read More

6 years ago

Mark Reynolds (3B, NYY) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: It seems like the Yankees just LOVE filling their entire lineup with low average, high strikeout power hitters. Reynolds fits that mold, and as you all know by now he's pretty worthless 80% of the season. But the other 20% he's nailz. He hit a 3-run bomb in... Read More

6 years ago

Robbie Grossman (OF, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in deep and AL-only leagues ANALYSIS: The Astros are seemingly auditioning young talent during the rest of this lost season in an effort to see where some of their young players fit in their future plans. Maybe the only corp of players in more disarray than Houston's bullpen has been their outfielders,... Read More

6 years ago

Will Venable (OF, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately Update 8/18:  Venable hit ANOTHER bomb today, and is going absolutely bonkers.  He needs to be added in all leagues immediately.  Over his last 14 days, Venable has 5 HRs, 5 Steals, 12 Runs and 9 RBIs, while hitting close to .400.  And he's ranked as a top-5 player in Yahoo... Read More

7 years ago


Sonny Gray (SP, OAK) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Sonny Gray was a highly touted A's prospect, and has done nothing but impress during his time in the majors. Sporting a filthy arsenal, and nasty curveball, Gray has racked up 20 Ks versus just 5 BBs over 18 IP - to go along with a pristine 1.00 ERA and... Read More

7 years ago

Travis d'Arnaud (C, NYM) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Continue scouting ANALYSIS: The Mets made a trade for the future this past offseason when they dealt Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey to Toronto, and the centerpiece of that trade, catcher Travis d'Arnaud, could be right around the corner from making his debut. The catching prospect has only played in 19 games this... Read More

7 years ago

Kolten Wong (2B, STL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Kolten Wong, one of the Cardinals' top prospects, has arrived. He's debuting to open up a weekend series against the rival Cubs. Well, if you haven't been informed yet, Wong has impressive abilities with the bat. He's a plus-contact hitter with above-average speed. Assuming he stays in the... Read More

7 years ago

Mark Reynolds (1B, 3B, NYY) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: The Yankees have made their second significant transaction-- first they acquired Alfonso Soriano, and now it's Reynolds. After witnessing Soriano's impact post-trade, the former Indian third baseman figures to earn a starting gig. Even with A-Rod healthy, Reynolds should still find a spot in the lineup on most... Read More

7 years ago

Chia-Jen Lo (RP, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting (add if desperate for saves) ANALYSIS: The Astros may be the worst team in baseball, but even terrible teams need a guy to close games, and at the moment, that guy seems to be Chia-Jen Lo. Lo hasn't officially been named Houston's closer, but he seems to have the trust of... Read More

7 years ago


Marco Estrada (SP, RP, MIL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Marco Estrada was an interesting draft pick going into the season, but he failed to impress before getting injured in late May. The Brewers' rotation has been scuffling with injuries recently, but the right-hander finally appears healthy again. In two starts since coming off the D.L., all Estrada... Read More

7 years ago

Emilio Bonifacio (2B, OF, KC) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting ANALYSIS: Emilio Bonifacio has not offered mixed-leaguers much production, but all of that could change soon. He is no longer a Blue Jay, as he has been acquired by the Royals. The speedster has hit for a measly average (.218) while failing to steal bases at respectable clip (1 SB for... Read More

7 years ago

Andrew Lambow (OF, PIT) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues (Add Immediately in NL-Only Leagues) ANALYSIS: Unable to acquire a corner outfield bat at the trade deadline, the Pirates have promoted outfield prospect Andrew Lambow. In 117 minor league games this year, Lambow was hitting .284 and tied for the minor league lead with 31 HR. He's an instant must-add... Read More

7 years ago

Roy Halladay (SP, PHI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Phillies former ace Roy Halladay is on the mend from shoulder surgery and is scheduled to make his first rehab start this Thursday. Rumor has it that he'll need only two rehab starts before rejoining the big club around the last week of August. Prior to the injury,... Read More

7 years ago

Chad Gaudin (SP / RP, SF) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues (Add Immediately in NL-Only Leagues) ANALYSIS: Since moving into the starting rotation in June, Chad Gaudin has quietly put up impressive numbers. In that time, a span of 11 starts, Gaudin is 5-1, with a 2.60 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP. Wile he's not the best strikeout pitcher, Gaudin... Read More
