Pedro Severino (C, BAL) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: It has hardly been the ideal season for the 2019 Baltimore Orioles, but there has hardly been a bad stretch of work at the plate for Pedro Severino.

Francisco Mejia (C, SD) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 24% of leagues ANALYSIS: Highly-touted catching prospect Francisco Mejia has not had a great initial time at the highest level of baseball, and he actually got off to an awful start to 2019 through the 54 AB of April and May. He has only taken 23 AB to... Read More

Bobby Bradley (1B, CLE) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of leagues ANALYSIS: The arrival of a prospect to the major league ranks is always exciting news, and the injection of first baseman Bobby Bradley into the Cleveland Indians batting order could mean some instant power-hitting rewards. The 23-year old Mississippian was once considered to be a... Read More

Homer Bailey (SP, KC) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of leagues ANALYSIS: It's been a long road back to legitimacy for Homer Bailey full of disappointing starts and IL stays since the time when he was so good that the Reds thought it wise to commit $105MM towards their former first round pick.

Diamonds in the (Very) Rough: NBA Draft Sleepers Of The Second Round and Beyond

It's funny that every year at the NBA Draft, once the end of the guaranteed money and live appearances arrives at the end of the first round, everybody tunes out and refers to the 60th pick as "Mr.Irrelevant". That's not very accurate though, is it? If we're going off of pure history and volume of... Read More

2B and SS Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 13

It's hard to believe that it's already June 24th, but then again it feels like we experience this point with every amateur and professional sport. Whether the season lasts 16, 35, 82, or 162 games, there comes the time every year where we transition from, "It's still pretty early" to, "There's actually not that much... Read More

Adrian Sampson (SP, TEX) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of leagues ANALYSIS: The line has not read particularly pretty on Adrian Sampson. The 27-year old alumni of Bellevue Community College has produced an overall mediocre body of work through 75.2 IP out of the Rangers rotation and bullpen, throwing for a 4.40 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and...

Michael Lorenzen (SP/RP, CIN) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Cincinnati Reds have used Michael Lorenzen in a variety of ways due to his stellar athleticism, case in point, he hit four home runs last season and has two stolen bases as a pinch runner in 2019. It has been difficult to work... Read More

Spencer Turnbull (SP, DET) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of leagues ANALYSIS: Though it may appear that Spencer Turnbull's best days of 2019 may already be behind him, there is evidence to suggest that the time is right to buy low on the 26-year old former Alabama Crimson Tide (and right in time for his start against...

Tom Murphy (C, SEA) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of leagues ANALYSIS: Go figure that as soon as Tom Murphy leaves the club with the most offense-friendly home stadium in baseball, he starts absolutely thriving at the plate. Though it has had to come as a backup to Omar Varvaez, Murphy is on pace to bulldoze his... Read More

Garrett Cooper (1B/OF, MIA) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of leagues ANALYSIS: Garrett Cooper has a straight-up weird lineup of peripherals, but fortunately, it has culminated in an absolutely fantastic offensive showing by the 28-year old Auburn alumni. This year, the emergent outfielder and first baseman has hit for six home runs and a well-rounded slash of... Read More

2B and SS Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 12

That crucial point in the summer has finally arrived: the St.Louis Blues are Stanley Cup Champions, the Toronto Raptors have been crowned the kings of the NBA in six games (Blue Jay fans can breathe a sigh of relief if Drizzy is ever cheering you on in the World Series), and unless you are tuned...

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

Elias Diaz (C, PIT) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

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. Diaz's body of work on the year sends mixed signals: he... Read More

Ramon Laureano (OF, OAK) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

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. However, under the surface, there are a few key indicators of safety in "C-Bass"... Read More

While the last couple of weeks have been heavy on prospect call-ups with the arrival of such players as Brendan Rodgers, Nicky Lopez, Cavan Biggio, and Keston Hiura, this week seems to epitomize a league of changing landscapes. The Phillies acquired Jay Bruce (with immediate results), there are further trade talks already swirling around the... Read More

Framber Valdez (SP, HOU) - Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups

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. However, with Collin McHugh on the IL and Corbin Martin in Triple-A Round Rock, the window of opportunity has been presented... Read More

Trevor Richards (SP, MIA) - Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 25% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Miami Marlins have received assistance from a slew of surprising starting pitchers this season, one of which has been 26-year old Trevor Richards.

Joe Jimenez (RP, DET) - Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups

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. Luckily, when you are Joe Jimenez and pitch for the Detroit Tigers who rank 27th in the MLB... Read More

Myles Straw (OF, HOU) - Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups

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. With a call-up in part prompted by the transfer of George Springer... Read More

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.

JaCoby Jones (OF, DET) - Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: 27-year old JaCoby Jones has profiled as a power/speed guy with ground to make up in his plate approach for much of his professional career.

Dallas Keuchel - A Brave New World

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

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. In that time, he has put up a fantastic statistical line that closely mirrors his minor league pedigree... Read More

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
