Welington Castillo (C, ARI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 22% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Welington Castillo just had the series of his life against a Seattle Mariners team that traded him away earlier this season. In two games, the 28-year-old backstop went 3-for-7 with three homers, four RBI, and three runs scored.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 22% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Francisco Cervelli was quite a pick-up for the Pirates this off-season when they lost Russell Martin. Cervelli has made the transition much more bearable for the team and fans, especially with his consistency. He’s got a slash line of .301/.371/.409 which perfectly illustrates the type of fantasy player... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues / All Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 38% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: It’s not often that multiple catchers from the same team can be fantasy relevant, but the Rockie’s fit that case this season.

BALLER MOVE: Add in Most Leagues Ownership: 29% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: Yasmani Grandal was a pre-season sleeper pick at the catcher position, and is rewarding those who decided to instill faith in the 26-year-old former 12th overall pick.

Yadier Molina (C, STL) - Waiver Wire Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 80% 0f Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: It's a stretch to call him a waiver wire pickup because of his high ownership percentage, but we're talking about catchers here.
