Cal Quantrill (SP/RP, SD) - Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of leagues ANALYSIS: He has jumped back a bit between rotation and bullpen action, but 24-year-old highly regarded arm Cal Quantrill has been absolutely shut-down for the San Diego Padres in recent outings. The former Stanford Cardinal has turned in a respectable body of work through his... Read More

2B and SS Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 17

The urgency is definitely picking up around baseball, and it tends to every year once the fun and fanfare of the All-Star break are in the rear-view mirror. You could smell the pungent aroma in the air over the past week. A few trades were completed, a few key players went down with injuries of... Read More

Aaron Bummer (RP, CHW) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of leagues ANALYSIS: There's a very realistic chance that the Chicago White Sox will find a way to trade their closer Alex Colome by the upcoming deadline, and if that happens, the ninth inning reigns will likely be handed down to thriving 25-year-old southpaw Aaron Bummer. Melancholic... Read More

Daniel Mengden (SP/RP, OAK) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of leagues ANALYSIS: Daniel Mengden is still surprisingly young at 26, and we can all get behind a fantastic mustache, but the Texas A&M alumni has sported more than well-groomed facial hair on the mound in recent work. Through 47.0 IP for another season as an Oakland... Read More

Chase Anderson (SP, MIL) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of leagues ANALYSIS: Chase Anderson has always flown under the radar, but despite one sub-par month of June for 2019 in which he had a 5.92 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in five starts, he is quietly en route to one of the finest campaigns of his career....

Daniel Hudson (RP, TOR) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of leagues ANALYSIS: Daniel Hudson has long been a reliable fixture in major league bullpens around the league, but he has never amassed more than five saves in a single season (a feat he accomplished in 2016 with the Arizona Diamondbacks). Now, with a fantastic body of... Read More

Nate Lowe (1B, TB) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of leagues ANALYSIS: In dealing with some recent injury issues, the Tampa Bay Rays have called on hulking, highly rated first base prospect Nate Lowe, with fantastic results.

Chance Sisco (C, BAL) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of leagues ANALYSIS: We're not referencing the "Thong Song", we're talking about Sisco of the Chance variety, and he is a former highly-touted prospect having an excellent season in the majors for the bottom-dwelling Baltimore Orioles. The 24-year-old backstop has torn up the opposition this season at Triple-A... Read More

Brett Gardner (OF, NYY) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of leagues ANALYSIS: Of all of the amazingly talented and highly sought-after pieces that grace the New York Yankees batting order, very few people probably expected 35-year-old Brett Gardner to be as valuable as he has been at the plate in 2019. In 310 AB, the veteran... Read More

Manuel Margot (OF, SD) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of leagues ANALYSIS: San Diego has plenty of young, burgeoning stars, and it's easy to forget the impressive play of Manuel Margot since he's been going to work at the plate and on the base-paths for the Padres for years. The 24-year-old former highly-touted prospect has hit... Read More

Phillip Ervin (OF, CIN) - Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of leagues ANALYSIS: Today is Phillip Ervin's 27th birthday, and he gave himself an early cause for celebration on Saturday by tying a Cincinnati Reds franchise record with six hits (in six AB) in a 17-9 win over the Colorado Rockies in Coors Field.

Todd Frazier (3B, NYM) - Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of leagues ANALYSIS: Todd Frazier has long been a streaky hitter both from month-to-month and year-to-year, and thanks to some top-tier work last month, he is back on track to turn in a solid year for the New York Mets. His line for the season currently reads... Read More

Oscar Mercado (OF, CLE) - Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 28% of leagues ANALYSIS: Oscar Mercado has hit a bit of a snag in his rookie campaign with the Cleveland Indians, and the deceleration may cause a few hesitant owners (or potential owners) to hit the brakes on his utilization as we enter the ceremonial second half of...

Carson Kelly (C, ARI) - Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of leagues ANALYSIS: I'm not just gassing Carson Kelly up because today is his 25th birthday: he has performed so well at the plate lately for the Arizona Diamondbacks that many of the scouts that once named him a top-50 prospect in all of baseball are starting to...

Christian Walker (1B, ARI) - Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of leagues ANALYSIS: Before the 2019 season, 28-year old Christian Walker had taken 88 AB across four separate seasons in the MLB, mostly culminating in disappointment. Fast forward 308 AB into this season and the former South Carolina Gamecock has crushed 18 home runs, stolen five bases... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Chicago White Sox have struggled to manufacture offense out of the DH slot this season, and with Yonder Alonso's tenure with the team already over (and his tenure with a new one has already begun), the club has opted to roll the dice...

Dylan Cease (SP, CHW) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 33% of leagues ANALYSIS: Between the Chicago White Sox pitchers who are injured and those who have struggled immensely in 2019, the club thought it was about time for highly-touted 23-year old Dylan Cease to make his major league debut. While that July 3rd outing didn't paint him... Read More

Danny Salazar (SP, CLE) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of leagues ANALYSIS: It is a little surreal to think that we haven't seen Danny Salazar on the major league mound since the 2017 season, and we are already three years removed from his lone All-Star campaign. He has been in a setback saturated recovery process from... Read More

Scott Oberg (RP, COL) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of leagues ANALYSIS: Wade Davis has lately been struggling tremendously, prompting talks to arise that he may soon he removed from the closer role for the Colorado Rockies.

Merrill Kelly (SP, ARI) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 35% of leagues ANALYSIS: It has been a particularly interesting path to the MLB for 30-year old rookie Merrill Kelly since leaving Arizona State (including a pretty successful stint in South Korea), but he has been an extremely pleasant surprise for the Diamondbacks this season with a 4.03 ERA...

Kevin Pillar (OF, SF) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of leagues ANALYSIS: Kevin Pillar is typically characterized as a guy who can produce power/speed figures at volume and play one of the meanest outfields in the game, but definitely has his weak spots at the plate. With 12 home runs, eight stolen bases (in nine tries),... Read More

Roberto Perez (C, CLE) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of leagues ANALYSIS: Maybe it speaks to the unexpected depth present in the middle-tiers of the catcher position this season, but 30-year old Roberto Perez is having a breakout season in his sixth year with the Cleveland Indians, and is white-hot coming off of an absolutely destructive month...

Luis Arraez (2B/OF, MIN) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of leagues ANALYSIS: With recent injury issues befalling Eddie Rosario and Marwin Gonzalez, the surprise division-leading Minnesota Twins have had to call on rookie Luis Arraez to fill in some pre-All-Star AB, to some fantastic results.

Jimmy Herget (RP, CIN) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Very Deep/Holds Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Cincinnati Reds bullpen has been elite this season (fourth in the league with a 3.76 ERA), but that doesn't its members from a shakeup of circumstance.
