Joe Smith (RP, LAA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues ANALYSIS: Since he came up in 2007, Smith has been a very reliable middle relief option for every team he has played on. In each of his final three seasons in Cleveland before signing with the Angels in 2014, he had a sub-3.00 ERA with 60+ IP. This year, he... Read More

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

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting ANALYSIS: Jedd Gyorko had a solid rookie campaign in 2013 in which he belted 23 HR in 486 AB. He was a favorite sleeper coming into this year, however in 204 AB he has mustered only 5 HR, 33 H and 12 BB, good enough for an abysmal .162/.212/.270 slash line... Read More

Carlos Martinez (SP, STL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep / NL-Only Leagues ANALYSIS: Carlos Martinez has incredible stuff-- some of the best among young pitchers in all of baseball, even drawing comparisons to Pedro Martinez. Like Pedro, the Cardinals' prospect is extremely undersized for a pitcher. Despite that, Martinez throws even harder than the future Hall-of-Famer who shares his... Read More

Henderson Alvarez (SP, MIA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues ANALYSIS: The fact that Henderson Alvarez is unowned in 64% of Yahoo! leagues is beyond me. In just 15 starts this year, Alvarez has three complete game shutouts, not allowing a single walk in any of them. After opening the season 0-2, he has pitched his way to a 4-1... Read More

Nick Castellanos (3B / OF, DET) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper / AL-Only Leagues (Especially Corner Infield Slots) ANALYSIS: Nick Castellanos has some big shoes to fill this year, seeing as the last guy to man the hot corner in Detroit won two consecutive AL MVP awards. The young righty will not be taking home such honors this year, but he has shown... Read More

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in NL-Only Leagues; Continue Scouting in All Other Leagues ANALYSIS: Wong is mostly a contact hitter, but can connect for some power on occasion. Still, his biggest fantasy contribution will be his speed. He gets on base a lot and is aggressive on the basepaths, so his stolen base numbers should always... Read More

Taijuan Walker (SP, SEA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Keeper Leagues and Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Taijuan Walker is the fifth-ranked prospect in all of baseball according to That alone should be enough to stash him in deep leagues and keeper leagues. He is a big, dominant righty with an overpowering, high-90s fastball and a nasty, low-90s cutter. He desperately... Read More

Andrew Heaney (SP, MIA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately in Keeper Leagues and Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Andrew Heaney is the top prospect in Miami's organization, and for good reason. The 23-year-old has flown through the minor leagues and is set to make his major league debut Thursday, June 19, just two years after being selected ninth overall by the Marlins Marlins....

Ryan Vogelsong (SP, SF) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues, NL-Only Leagues ANALYSIS: At 36 years old, Ryan Vogelsong may not have many years left. As for right now, though, he is still pretty effective, both as a real life pitcher and a fantasy option. Despite getting off to a rough start, Vogelsong had found himself sitting at a... Read More

Chase Anderson (SP, ARI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in AL-Only Leagues, Deeper Mixed Leagues ANALYSIS: Anderson was never an incredibly highly-regarded pitching prospect, but has finally found his way to the majors after being drafted by the D'backs in the ninth round of the 2009 draft. He had a rough go at Triple-A in 2013, posting a 5.73 ERA in 88... Read More

Jacob deGrom (SP, NYM) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Very Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Jacob deGrom is killing the ball to the tune of a .455 AVG, emerging himself as one of the best hitters in the Mets' lineup. Unfortunately, in fantasy baseball, those stats don't count for a pitcher. The 25-year-old righty has been an effective pitcher, as well, contrary... Read More

Ruben Tejada (SS, NYM) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting ANALYSIS: Generally speaking, players who lack power, the ability to consistently get on base and everyday at-bats are not enticing fantasy options. Ruben Tejada is no exception. Especially when you consider that, despite once being praised for his base-running abilities, he has never swiped more than five bags in a single... Read More

Drew Smyly (SP, DET) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Very Deep and AL-Only Leagues   ANALYSIS: Smyly has struggled a bit since his move into Detroit's starting rotation, sporting a 4.37 ERA over his nine starts. He showed signs of promise in his most recent start against a talented, albeit struggling, Boston offense, but needs to display some consistency before... Read More
