Khris Davis (OF, MIL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting ANALYSIS: Davis is an interesting prospect. With Ryan Braun accepting his suspension for the remainder of the season, Milwaukee called up Davis to try to replace some of the lost production. So far, he’s pretty much just bench and pinch-hitting duty, but he has 2 HR in just 27 AB, and... Read More

Henry Urrutia (OF, BAL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Baltimore has called up their touted OF prospect, and he will be starting tomorrow.

Grant Green (2B, SS, OAK)

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting ANALYSIS: Through 81 games in the minors, Green batted .318/.374/.500 with 11 HR and 49 RBI. He's been called up and you should definitely keep and eye on him.
