Christian Vazquez (C, BOS) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 34% of leagues ANALYSIS: It hasn't been a strong start to June for Christian Vazquez with a .604 OPS and zero home runs through 35 AB, but let's view it as a good time to buy low, because he's at a shallow position for a top-tier offense. After... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of leagues ANALYSIS: The injury to Francisco Cervelli led the way to Elias Diaz receiving the majority share of work at catcher for the Pirates, and the sub-par play of Jacob Stallings has eliminated all current threat.

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 28% of leagues ANALYSIS: Ramon Laureano is known first and foremost for his incredible exploits on defense, such as gravity-defying diving catches and 96 MPH outfield assists.

Joe Biagini (RP, TOR) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Toronto Blue Jays might not be doing a lot of winning in 2019, but with Ken Giles recently on the ten-day IL, the potential high-leverage bullpen situations have to go to somebody. With a 10.13 ERA and 1.88 WHIP to start the month... Read More

Chris Bassitt (SP, OAK) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 34% of leagues ANALYSIS: It may be easy to look at the way Chris Bassitt has been trending and get discouraged, as he has looked shaky at times after his fast start to 2019.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of leagues ANALYSIS: It's wild that even on a World Series contending team like the Houston Astros, there still comes the opportunity for promotion and substitutions.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of leagues ANALYSIS: Normally when you start a month by allowing five ER and four walks in two IP, your spot in the bullpen may be up for grabs.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of leagues ANALYSIS: Myles Straw has taken just 18 AB at the MLB level in 2019 (27 in total), and it hasn't taken him long to make an impact for the first place Houston Astros.

Jesse Winker (OF, CIN) - Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of leagues ANALYSIS: It has been an interesting season for Jesse Winker, to say the least.

Dallas Keuchel - A Brave New World

Once a certain point was reached, we all knew that it could happen at any given second.

Luis Urias (2B, SD) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of leagues ANALYSIS: In 72 AB at the MLB level, consensus top-30 prospect Luis Urias has been slow to accelerate with just two home runs and a steal to go with a less-than pedestrian .167/.256/.278 slash. That would definitely be a bummer, that is if he wasn't... Read More

Bryan Reynolds (OF, PIT) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of leagues ANALYSIS: Thanks in part to a ridiculous amount of injuries to players for the Pittsburgh Pirates, 24-year old rookie Bryan Reynolds has gotten an extremely healthy 116 AB.

Hunter Strickland (RP, SEA) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of leagues ANALYSIS: Veteran reliever Hunter Strickland didn't have a good time in his incredibly brief stint on the mound for 2019 before being moved to the 60-day IL with a right lat strain, and you would think that would make him an unappealing option out of...

Kyle Tucker (OF, HOU) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of leagues ANALYSIS: Kyle Tucker is one of the most eagerly anticipated outfielders in all of baseball, which feels a bit unfair coming within an organization with an extremely recent World Series title.

2B and SS Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 9

Like last week, this weeks story-line was plastered with news about prospect call-ups (and some of them weren't even middle infielders).

Clint Frazier (OF, NYY) - Week 9 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 33% of leagues ANALYSIS: Things never seem to go as expected with the New York Yankees lineup (as there would be no story lines to be had), and due to some ongoing complications such as Giancarlo Stanton's injury setbacks, Clint Frazier's spot in the outfield appears to be safe...

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Blue Jays have had some well-documented issues at second base this season whether it be from injury or lack of performance, and they have recently decided to give the call to high-performing prospect (and son of HOFer Craig Biggio) Cavan Biggio. The 24-year... Read More

Scott Oberg (RP, COL) - Week 9 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 28% of leagues ANALYSIS: With Wade Davis hitting the IL recently with an oblique injury, it was announced that Scott Oberg would take over closer duties for the Colorado Rockies.

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 35% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Los Angeles Angels had a rough start to the 2019 season at the back end of the bullpen, demoting veteran closer Cody Allen for a head-clearing and soon looking to 28-year old Hansel Robles in high-leverage situations.

Alex Verdugo (OF, LAD) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of leagues ANALYSIS: The lineup for the Los Angeles Dodgers is never truly complete and could always use its yearly dash of young and explosive, here in the case of highly-touted prospect Alex Verdugo.

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Minnesota Twins have hit the proverbial jackpot at backstop in 2019.
