Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Pickups List

Bargain Bin: AL-Only Sleepers & Value Picks Everybody is looking to find that guy during the draft who might provide you with the unexpected production that will help you win your fantasy baseball league. This is what makes the final six or seven rounds of the draft, and then waiver wire prowling, so much fun.... Read More

  Who is Chris Owings? With the news that Chris Owings has the starting shortstop gig in Arizona, the time has come for fantasy owners to start grading him against other shortstops in the league. Owings has not had a fantastic spring, but that should not worry anyone keeping an eye on him. Spring Training statistics almost... Read More

Who is Jhonny Peralta? After signing a controversial four year $53 million contract in the offseason, it seems counterintuitive that Cardinal shortstop Jhonny Peralta should fit in the 2014 fantasy sleeper category, but based on his rank and average pick in fantasy drafts, Peralta is potentially the most undervalued Cardinal. It is unclear where Peralta will hit... Read More

  Who is Adam Eaton? Adam Eaton is slated to be the Chicago White Sox opening day lead-off hitter and center fielder. Occupying the first spot in any team's batting order provides a huge opportunity for fantasy success. Eaton is flying somewhat under the radar in terms of fantasy hype, but he will be a household... Read More

  What's That Odor? If you were counting on Jurickson Profar to score 100 runs and be productive for the Texas Rangers in 2014, you should probably start perusing the waiver wire and crossing your fingers.  The starting second baseman injured his throwing shoulder and will be out at least 10-12 weeks. The Rangers had... Read More

Shortstop is a tricky position in fantasy baseball with some decent talents available across the board. You might use one of your first picks to grab Hanley Ramirez or Troy Tulowitzki, play it safe with one of the other 10 SS ranked in the overall top 150, or wait to fill the position and play... Read More

Who is Khris Davis? The Milwaukee Brewers needed someone to take over in left field last season after Ryan Braun was suspended for the last 65 games of the season. That player turned out to be Khris Davis, and his 2013 output has allowed the Brewers to move Braun to right field this season. Davis has the... Read More

The Seattle Mariners made a concerted effort to bolster their offense during this off-season, bringing several veteran bats into the organization.  Even with these high-profile outside signings, one of the more intriguing players in the Seattle lineup has been slowly making his way through their farm system.  Though seldom looked to for fantasy value, the... Read More

Can B.J. Upton Rebound In 2014? B.J. Upton’s season last year was a disaster.  He tied or beat career lows in runs, home runs, runs batted in, stolen bases and batting average for seasons in which he had over 200 at bats at the major league level.  That is every one of your basic scoring... Read More

  Who is Tim Hudson? When I mention the name Tim Hudson, it’s hard not to let the gruesome image of his ankle snapping across first base be the first thing that comes to mind. You’re probably wondering how an aging veteran, just a few years shy of 40 and coming off an injury, could... Read More

  Overhyped Sleepers in Fantasy Baseball As we get into the heart of MLB fantasy draft season, I thought it would be appropriate to address an increasingly important topic that can have a deep and often very adverse effect on a manger’s draft: the overhyped sleeper. I remember when I drafted Dee Gordon (2B, LAD)... Read More

  Who is David Freese? When you have a lineup loaded with some of baseball’s top hitters, it is easy to forget about the little guys. Some may say David Freese is no longer in that category, contrary to his postseason heroics for the Cardinals in 2011, and he has yet to put together a... Read More

Who is Mike Moustakas? The career of Mike Moustakas hasn’t exactly gone the way that he would have liked. The third baseman burst onto the scene in 2011 and was supposed to be the Kansas City Royals’ future at the position. After two full seasons that weren’t great, Moustakas came into spring training this season looking to... Read More

After browsing some of the spring training box scores and taking into account the overall makeup of the roster for the Cincinnati Reds, I had narrowed it down to two players that could emerge as potential fantasy baseball sleepers in 2014. Outfielder Roger Bernadina and infielder Chris Nelson were those players, and while I still... Read More

How do you choose a sleeper candidate from a New York Yankee roster that has a payroll of close to $200 million dollars this upcoming season? At first I thought the clear choice was pitcher Ivan Nova and although I believe he will be a productive fourth starter for the Yankees this year, his history of... Read More

3 Second Base Sleepers for Fantasy Baseball Drafts I have been tasked with deciphering which second basemen currently being drafted outside of the top 10 rounds (ADP over 120) will deliver the statistics needed to help you win your fantasy league this year. Second base is a dicey position in fantasy year-in and year-out, as... Read More

Matt Kemp has let down their fans mightily over the last two seasons, but the team took L.A. by... Read More

Yesterday I discussed three starting pitcher sleepers from the American League. Today I'll be going over 3 pitchers in the National League who I consider to be among my top sleeper candidates for 2014. These are guys you could get outside the first 10 rounds in standard league play, but who have upside well above... Read More

Today I'll be going over 3 pitchers in the American League who I consider to be among my top sleeper candidates for 2014. These are pitchers you can get outside the first 10 rounds, but who have huge upside and could end the season among the game's best.   Sonny Gray 2013 Stats: 64.0 IP, 2.67... Read More

Matt “Big City” Adams is a towering force when standing at the plate.  He looks bigger than his listed 6'3" 260 lbs.  I mean, he had to be born weighing 30 lbs., right?  He is one big son of a $%*#!! OK, all jokes aside, Adams is a big guy and he used his big... Read More

  Age 27 Hitters Primed for a Breakout Season Any seasoned fantasy baseball owner is familiar with the legend behind the 27-year-old baseball player. It seems that many major leaguers enter their prime once they turn 27 years old, and magically reach the potential that made baseball scouts swoon over them during their minor league... Read More

After the marquee names have disappeared in your fantasy draft, it may be time to look for specific needs from the remaining outfield pool.  These three National League outfielders may be light on power and driving in runs, but high on speed and run scoring potential.  Each of these players is a bit of a... Read More

With so many outfielders to evaluate, there are a few that may slip through the cracks in your fantasy draft.  The three I have chosen here are big components of their teams for 2014.  In fact, each will probably even be given time to settle into their new role on the club.  If you are... Read More

  Five 1B Deep Sleepers for 2014 Analyzing first base is one fantasy proposition, but predicting the 2014 season’s breakouts is an entirely different ball game (pun intended).  Generally, when we think of the position’s elite options, we think of the slow contributor with no SB who provides a hefty percentage of your team’s HR... Read More

After the 2012 season, Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado was ranked as the team's #1 prospect by Baseball America and #52 in all of baseball.   Arenado had a great spring in 2013 with 4 HR and 12 RBI while slugging .574, but he was sent to Triple-A in favor of Chris Nelson.  Arenado didn’t last long... Read More

Catcher is usually one of the shallowest positions in major league baseball, and unless a fantasy owner is willing to shell out top dollar for a star, finding a good sleeper (or two) at the position is key to dominating your league. I'm rarely one to take one of the top three catchers on the... Read More

  Top Three 3B Sleepers for 2014 There is nothing more satisfying for a fantasy sports player than being able to brag that you picked the player that no one had ever heard of in your fantasy league draft - if that guy goes on to have a great year.  You picked up the player... Read More

  Undervalued Shortstops for Fantasy Baseball Drafts We’ve already taken a look at shortstops overvalued by fantasy experts. There was Alexei Ramirez, who I contend, is aging with declining skills and less opportunities due being moved down in the White Sox order. Andrelton Simmons’ power seems unsustainable, and isn’t made up for it in other... Read More

You think you’re tough?  Are you a catcher in MLB?  Probably not.  Have you come back from a torn ACL?  Maybe you have-- it sucks right?  How about being kidnapped in Venezuela in front of your family?  I didn’t think so.  These are just some of the things that make Wilson Ramos, catcher for the... Read More

Undervalued Second Baseman for Fantasy Baseball Drafts You're getting ready for your season, so I'm sure you've read the rankings from your favorite analysts. I'm here to tell you why they're wrong in some cases-- here, it's regarding undervalued second basemen. Let's get to it, shall we?   Daniel Murphy Murphy busted out somewhat in... Read More
