2017 Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Adds by MLB Position

ALL - C - 1B - 2B - SS - 3B - OF - SP - RP

 

Josh Bell - (1B/OF, PIT)– Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 37% of Yahoo! Leagues   ANALYSIS: Josh Bell began the season with a troubling profile as he was striking out frequently, which greatly hindered his batting average. While he showed some power, it wasn’t enough to make him fantasy relevant at first base. However, since June began, Bell has cut down his strikeout rate and increased his hard contact rate greatly. For example, after hard contact rates of just 27.8% and 29.3% in April and May respectively, Bell has upped those rates to...

Ian Happ - (2B/OF, CHC) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 49% of Yahoo! Leagues   ANALYSIS: Ian Happ got off to a slow start in his first month in the big leagues, posting just a .741 OPS over 56 at-bats in the month of May. However, that number has jumped to nearly .900 for both June and July, which has forced the Cubs’ hand in making him an everyday player. The driving force behind Happ’s success has been his improved contact rate. In May, his strikeout rate was at a troubling 34.4%, however, that...

Trey Mancini (1B/OF, BAL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 47% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Baltimore Orioles first baseman/outfielder Trey Mancini has found a spot in the Orioles lineup and has a .305 batting average this season. Mancini has hits in seven of his last 10 games, but since he only has three multi-hit games in that time span, he could have been dropped in some fantasy leagues because of a small dip in production. Even with a small dip in production, Mancini still has a .279 batting average in July, clubbing...

Keon Broxton (OF, MIL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 45% Yahoo ANALYSIS: Broxton is streaky, will bludgeon your batting average, and runs a strikeout rate within shouting distance of 40 percent. He's also one of just 14 players with more than 15 stolen bases. The only player in that group with more home runs than Broxton's 14 is Mookie Betts, which illustrates the scarcity of players who can legitimately contribute in both categories. Along with solid run production, that combination is enough to make Broxton a top-50 outfielder despite his obvious flaws as...

Tommy Pham (OF, STL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 33% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: It's time to give in. Pham is on pace for a 20/20 season and is batting .308 to boot. His .382 BABIP and 34.4% HR/FB are scaring away many a fantasy owner, which is the only way to explain his low ownership rate. That and the fact he's already set a career high in home runs and never stole more than two bases before this season. Those ratios are due to drop eventually and he's clearly playing over his head, but that doesn't mean...

Mallex Smith - (OF, TB) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Yahoo! Leagues   ANALYSIS: The Tampa Bay Rays’ outfield looked crowded at one point this season, but with injuries to Kevin Kiermaier and the recent loss of Colby Rasmus, Mallex Smith is now locked in as the Rays everyday centerfielder. Smith’s fantasy appeal clearly comes from his ability to steal bases, as in just 108 career games he has 28 stolen bases in 40 opportunities. Despite this relative inefficiency, Smith appears to still have the...

Lonnie Chisenhall - (OF, CLE) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of Yahoo! Leagues   ANALYSIS: Outfield is a crowded fantasy position this season, especially for players without standout power or stolen base production. However, Lonnie Chisenhall is still worth considering due to his ability to get on base and drive in runs. Despite batting sixth and seventh in the Indians’ lineup for the majority of the season, Chisenhall has managed to drive in 51 runs in just over half the season. More impressive is the improvement in his batting average and on-base...

Matt Adams (1B/OF, ATL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 46% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS:  Atlanta Braves first baseman Matt Adams has four extra-base hits in his last four games and his power is a reason for him to be added to fantasy rosters. Adams had a .736 OPS and only three extra-base hits with the Cardinals in 48 at-bats this season, but now has 25 extra-base hits in 167 at-bats with the Braves. He had a 1.034 OPS in June, including 10 home runs, and he has driven in 35...

Ian Happ (2B/OF, CHC) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 50% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS:  Chicago Cubs second baseman/outfielder Ian Happ has hits in eight of his last nine games and is quickly adding average to his power. Happ has 25 extra-base hits in 176 at-bats this season, leading to a .568 slugging percentage, and has seen his batting average go from .252 to .264 over the last 10 games. He has also stolen a base in two of his last five games, a surprise considering that he only stole one...

Mallex Smith (OF, TB) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS:  Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Mallex Smith has hits in six consecutive games, seeing his batting average jump to .330 for the season, and is becoming a fantasy asset. Smith is 9-for-20 to open July, hitting two doubles and scoring five runs, stealing a base in two of the last three games. He has now stolen 11 bases in 33 games this season and his 21 runs scored make him the ideal leadoff hitter. After taking over...

Keon Broxton (OF, MIL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 33% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS:  Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Keon Broxton has 14 home runs and 16 stolen bases this season, a power-speed tandem that would help any fantasy team. Broxton is only 2-for-22 in July, but does have a home run and two stolen bases this month, walking four times over the last two games. In fact, Broxton only has two hits over his last 10 games, striking out 10 times. His July struggles aside, Broxton had an .885 OPS in...

Curtis Granderson (OF, NYM) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS:  New York Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson had an 1.153 OPS in June, has a hit in eight of his last 10 games, and is becoming a good fantasy addition. From June 25-July 3, Granderson had a home run in four of seven games and now has 13 home runs and has an .814 OPS this season. He also has an RBI in seven of his last nine, getting back into the lineup after dealing with a...

Jose Pirela (2B/OF, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: The Padres have made it a habit of patching holes in their lineup out of necessity. They may have found a permanent solution to the left field problem with Jose Pirela. With Alex Dickerson ruled out for the year and Travis Jankowski on the shelf indefinitely, Pirela has been holding down LF and the leadoff spot in the lineup since early June. He started off ridiculously hot, picking...

Domingo Santana (OF, MIL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 58% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Domingo Santana was already enjoying a solid season, but he has been blistering to begin July. He has seven hits in his last 16 at-bats with four runs and four RBI in his last five games. Santana is on pace to approach a 30-HR, 100-RBI season in his first chance as a true full-time starter. He's shown an affinity for taking walks (12.1% BB%) which has led to a .370 OBP. He'll continue to swing and...

Welcome back to the Outfield Waiver Wire, where we look at the best outfielders available in at least 50 percent of Yahoo leagues. Consider this column your recommendations for Week 14 outfield waiver wire pickups. We're nearing the halfway point of the season, but there are still plenty of guys who can help you floating around on the waiver wire. Not every move can be a blockbuster. Value is value, wherever you can find it. This column is designed to help you do just that. Let's get down to business. Week 14 Outfield (OF) Waiver Wire...

Danny Valencia (1B/3B/OF, SEA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Seattle Mariners first baseman Danny Valencia is coming off of two months where he hit over .300 and is a great addition to fantasy lineups. Valencia had 17 runs scored and 21 RBI in June, hitting .308, and has found a spot at first base for Seattle with 21 extra-base hits in 261 at-bats this season. After posting a .181 batting average in 72 April at-bats, Valencia had a .306 batting average in May and had an...

Tommy Pham (OF, STL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Tommy Pham has hits in nine of his last 10 games and his .289 batting average this season is very intriguing to fantasy owners. Pham has scored a run in six consecutive games, scoring three runs on June 26, and has also stolen a base in three of his last five games. He only has three multi-hit games over his last 10 games, but his eight runs scored over the last seven games...

Scooter Gennett (2B/3B/OF, CIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 54% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Cincinnati Reds utility man Scooter Gennett had garnered attention with his four-home run game and has kept interest with his .302 batting average this month. Gennett has hits in eight of his last 10 games, including four multi-hit games, and has six extra-base hits over that time span as well. He is up to 12 home runs in 184 at-bats this season, a good haul for a middle infielder, and his eligibility all over the field makes...

Josh Reddick (OF, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 34% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Houston Astros outfielder Josh Reddick is eighth in the American League with a .308 batting average this season and is a great addition for fantasy owners. Reddick has a hit in eight of his last nine games, including five multi-hit games, and has a .389 batting average in June including 12 extra-base hits. He has a double in back-to-back games and has scored 19 runs this month, with eight runs scored over the last seven days. Reddick had a...

Michael Taylor (OF, WAS) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 45% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Michael Taylor has filled in admirably in center field for the Nationals since Adam Eaton's knee exploded at the end of April. He's hit .294/.329/.557 with 11 home runs and nine stolen bases in his two months as the starter. Taylor's plate approach remains suspect - only six hitters with at least 225 plate appearances have a worse ratio of walks to strikeouts, and only nine have a higher strikeout rate - but he's produced in...

Trey Mancini - (1B, OF, BAL) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 45% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Trey Mancini was gaining more playing time as the wore on and the injury to Chris Davis has served to seal his role as an everyday player for the Orioles. He has taken advantage of that, posting a 1.105 OPS in the month of June. In fact, this compares rather favorably to another rookie receiving plenty of hype in Cody Bellinger, who has posted a 1.138 OPS for the month. His profile suggests...

Jose Pirela (2B/OF, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 11% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: San Diego Padres second baseman/outfielder Jose Pirela has a. 328 batting average in June and is becoming a nice option for fantasy owners. Pirela has five multi-hit games in his last 10 games and also stole two bases on June 21, a nice surprise for a player with four stolen bases in 74 career games. He has eight extra-base hits and 11 runs scored in June, registering a seven-game hitting streak from June 7-13 with six multi-hit...

Ian Happ (2B/OF, CHC) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS:  Chicago Cubs second baseman/outfielder Ian Happ has 13 extra-base hits in June and is quickly becoming the next young slugger out of the Cubs' system. Happ now has a hit in nine of his last 10 games and a .926 OPS for the season. He has 20 extra-base hits in 122 at-bats this season, showing that he is an inexpensive source of power. His .254 batting average is still not great, but that kind of power...

Cameron Maybin (OF, LAA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 59% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Los Angeles Angels outfielder Cameron Maybin leads the American League with 22 stolen bases and is quickly becoming a must-add in all formats. He has a .358 batting average and eight extra-base hits in June and has three games with multiple runs scored over his last six games. Maybin only has one hit in his last three games, but had a 10-game hitting streak prior to that, including six multi-hit games. He has only been caught stealing once this...

Scott Schebler (OF, CIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Owned in: 59% of Fleaflicker Leagues Baller Move: Add in 12+ Team Leagues Analysis: Once the quickly dismissed final asset acquired by the Reds from the Dodgers in the 2015 three-team deal, Scott Schebler has wasted no time in putting his bat to work in the young and talented Cincinnati outfield. Schebler has managed a BA and OBP of just .253 and .327, however he has a slugging percentage of .541 off of 19 total HR on the season, tied for fourth in the NL with ...

Trey Mancini (1B/OF, BAL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS:  Baltimore Orioles rookie first baseman/outfielder Trey Mancini has made the most of all of his opportunities this season and has four home runs over the last 14 days. He has garnered more playing time with Chris Davis on the disabled list and, while his slugging profile looks similar to Davis (11 home runs in 175 at-bats), he also has a .303 batting average this season. It would be good if Mancini took a walk...

Bradley Zimmer (OF, CLE) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Cleveland Indians rookie outfielder Bradley Zimmer was a top-25 prospect in the minor leagues and his .868 OPS in 28 games with the Indians shows that he has lived up to the hype. He only has one multi-hit game over the last 10 games, a four-RBI performance on Saturday that included a stolen base, but has a hit in four of his last five games. Zimmer has four home runs and six stolen bases thus far with Cleveland...

Kole Calhoun (OF, LAA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 56% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Los Angeles Angels outfielder Kole Calhoun cooled off a bit over the last week, posting a .656 OPS, but has 11 RBI over the last two weeks and is a good addition for those looking for outfield help. Calhoun had 48 extra-base hits and 91 runs scored last season, making him a decent OF4, but his .676 OPS in April and .533 OPS in May saw him dropped in many formats. Those that held him, though, have seen...

Bradley Zimmer (OF, CLE) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Bradley Zimmer hasn't taken long to adjust to the majors. Zimmer has jacked four homers, stolen three bases, and driven in 14 runs over his first 21 games. Zimmer isn't a power hitter, never hitting more than 15 HR in a minor league season; his 36.4% HR/FB is absolutely unsustainable too. He should keep producing extra-base hits if he keeps up his outstanding 42.5% hard contact rate, however, sustaining his value in points leagues. Zimmer's plate...

Hunter Renfroe (OF, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Rookie Hunter Renfroe is living up to his billing as a masher. Renfroe has gone deep four times in the last two weeks, giving him 13 HR and 30 RBI on the season. While he's nowhere near Aaron Judge territory, he is making a case for consideration as an NL Rookie of the Year candidate. This shouldn't be a surprise, as he hit to the tune of 30 HR, 105 RBI and a .306...

Mallex Smith (OF, TB) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in AL-only, Deep Mixed Leagues OWNED IN: 12% Yahoo! ANALYSIS: After spending the better part of the last two months in Triple-A Durham, Mallex Smith rejoined the Rays on Friday, going 2-for-3 with a home run, three runs scored, two runs batted in and three stolen bases against the Athletics. The 24-year-old Smith was acquired from the Braves in a two-part trade that granted Smith roughly a six-hour stint with the Mariners, and a recent injury to Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier has...

Melky Cabrera (OF, CHW) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 43% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Melky Cabrera has been an underrated fantasy asset for a couple of years now. He continually hits for average; he's gone over .270 each of the last six seasons and over .300 in three of them (he was four points shy last year). He's also produced at least 70 RuBIns the last three seasons. This season figures to be no exception. After a sluggish April, Cabrera knocked in 26 RBI in May alone. His pull rate jumped nearly...

Domingo Santana (OF, MIL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 42% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Domingo Santana has been a fixture on this list, but his skills bear repeating.  He is a speed/power threat in a good lineup (fourth in MLB in runs per game) and has a .949 OPS over the last two weeks. Santana has 18 RBI and 17 runs scored over the last 30 days, posting an .898 OPS and .319 batting average. This year, he has cut his K-rate to 27%, allowing him to...

Steven Souza Jr. (OF, TB) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 44% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Steven Souza has a 1.184 OPS over the last 14 days, including five home runs and 10 RBI, making him a strong fantasy option once again. The more advanced metrics show that he has substantially increased his walk rate while he has seen a modest reduction in the rate he strikes out. Souza has reached base at a .463 clip over the last 14 days and has a very strong .384 OBP this season. This all comes after he after...

Whit Merrifield (2B/OF, KC) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: After posting a .283 batting average in 2016, there was little buzz around Kansas City Royals 2B Whit Merrifield, but that has changed during the last few weeks. Merrifield has a 1.201 OPS over the last 14 days, stealing three bases as well, and has a 17-game hitting streak that has made him a very viable fantasy option. The Royals have played Merrifield in both the oufield and second base, adding value to his fantasy profile...

Hunter Renfroe - (OF, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 31% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Renfroe has had a rocky start to the 2017 season, leaving may fantasy owners pondering his value moving forward. He posted a disappointing .623 OPS in April, but he was able to bump that up to .869 in May. This type of inconsistent performance can be expected given Renfroe’s profile, and for fantasy owners who are starving for power, he is a player to consider picking up and holding through his slumps. To no one’s surprise, Renfroe has been unable to...

David Peralta (OF, ARI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 45% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: David Peralta continues to prove his worth as an OF3 in fantasy leagues with production across multiple categories. His slash line is up to .305/.349/.461 with four home runs, four steals, and 24 runs scored. His weak area of production is RBI, as he's only driven in 12 over 154 at-bats. He's already matched last year's power totals, but with a much lower strikeout rate (16.9%). Truth be told, Peralta has never hit more than 17 HR in a pro...

Hunter Renfroe (OF, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: San Diego Padres outfielder Hunter Renfroe has been scorching hot over the last 14 days, posting a 1.097 OPS, 10 RBI, and 11 runs scored. Renfroe is also 8-for-20 over the last week, hitting a home run and scoring five runs while posting a 1.205 OPS. He is limited against right-handed pitchers, as he has a .234 OBP in RvR matchups, but is 15-for-47 with three home runs and four doubles against left-handed pitchers this season....

Cameron Maybin (OF, LAA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 21% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Many thought that Los Angeles Angels outfielder Cameron Maybin had a fluke 2016 season with a .315 batting average in 94 games, but his 2017 season has been strong as well.  While his season average is just .244, he's absolutely tearing it up over the last 14 days with a .395 average. He even chipped in his first two homers and scored 14 runs over that time span. Last year he enjoyed an absurdly high .383 BABIP,...

Josh Bell (1B/OF, PIT) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 45% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Two weeks into the season, Pittsburgh Pirates first baseman/outfielder Josh Bell was hitting a putrid .200/.273/.250 with only two extra-base hits, both doubles. In the month since, Bell has been outstanding. He's hit nine home runs, tying him with Cody Bellinger for second among all rookies. Over the last 30 days, Bell has an .812 OPS and has totalled 14 RBI and 18 runs scored. He still has his issues against left-handed pitchers, a .205 batting average...

Scott Schebler (OF, CIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 50% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Cincinnati Reds outfielder Scott Schebler has it all going on right now. Schebler has already hit 14 home runs, and if it weren't for the mediocre team around him, he'd have some extra counting stats to show for it. Schebler has the benefit of a super-friendly hitter's ballpark which is good enough to counteract his supporting cast. Schebler is doing a lot of what Adam Duvall did last year with a breakout year, and it's...

Adam Frazier (2B/OF, PIT) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Adam Frazier won't hold down center field for the Pirates all season, but maybe he should. In two days filling in for a struggling Andrew McCutchen, Frazier hit three-run homers on consecutive days. He is now hitting a surprising .361 with a .961 OPS on the season. He's not a power hitter by any stretch, as the sudden power surge gives him a total of three homers and 16 RBI in 97 at-bats. He...

Scott Schebler (OF, CIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 42% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: To this point, Schebler is doing his best Adam Duvall impression. Aside from the obvious similarities as far as team and position, he's also a near-duplicate statistically to Duvall's 2016 season in which he broke out. With a week left in May, Schebler has 13 home runs, 27 runs batted in, and a .253 average. By contrast, Duvall had 13 HR, 29 RBI and a .264 average at the end of May last season. Schebler is two...

Jarrod Dyson (OF, SEA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12- and 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 20% Yahoo! ANALYSIS: Finally an everyday player, Jarrod Dyson has yet to take his offensive game to the next level. The 32-year-old speedster is slashing just .206/.308/.301 through his first 43 games played, with two homers, 24 runs scored and 11 RBI. However, his .228 BABIP is incredibly low for a guy with his speed — mostly as a result of a career-high 34.3 percent fly ball rate — so if he can rectify that and return to his...

Brandon Drury (2B/3B/OF, ARI) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 50% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Brandon Drury is off to a great start to the 2017 season, slashing .309/.347/.496 with four home runs, 12 doubles and 16 runs batted in and runs scored, respectively. Drury's batting average has leaped up 27 points from last season thanks to a gaudy .382 BABIP. However, that mark is unsustainable, so fantasy owners should expect Drury's batting average to dip. His SwStrk% has increased from from 9.4% to 11% due to his O-Swing% augmenting from 32.2% to 34.6%...

David Peralta (OF, ARI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10- and 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 43% Yahoo! ANALYSIS: After an injury-riddled 2016 campaign, David Peralta has returned to form in the early stages of 2017. Through 36 games played, the 29-year-old has slashed .319/.367/.489 with four homers and four steals. He is cemented into the two-hole of a Diamondbacks lineup that had produced the fourth-most runs in all of baseball, slotted in front of Paul Goldschmidt, Jake Lamb and Yasmany Tomas. Peralta has cut down...

Josh Reddick (OF, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 22% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Josh Reddick has bounced back nicely to begin 2017 after an abysmal and disappointing 2016 campaign. He is on pace for over 20 home runs after hitting just 10 all of last season. Much of that rebound comes from Reddick’s fly ball rate, which has jumped to 44.8%, his highest rate since 2014. He has maintained his low strikeout rate, meaning his .281 batting average should be sustainable. Reddick has an .861 OPS over the last...

Manuel Margot (OF, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 43% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: San Diego Padres outfielder Manuel Margot has lived up to his high potential coming into the 2017 season, posting a .287 batting average and four stolen bases over the last 30 days. The 22-year-old is barely touching is potential as well, and his .320 batting average over the last seven days could show that he is really about to break out. The untapped potential for Margot is on the basepaths, where he is only 5-for-10, as...

Jayson Werth (OF, WAS) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 35% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth has been one of the best hitters in baseball over the last two weeks, posting a 1.308 OPS with three home runs, and is nearing "must-add" status in all fantasy formats. Werth has three home runs and nine runs scored over the last 14 days and his .904 OPS and .391 wOBA would each be the third-best of his career. The 38-year-old Werth has also stolen three bases this season, surprising for a...

Josh Bell (1B/OF, PIT) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 39% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Pittsburgh Pirates' first baseman Josh Bell has lived up to his power potential over the past week, clubbing four home runs and knocking in nine RBI. Moving his sample size to the last 30 days, Bell has a 1.014 OPS and .376 isolated power, scoring 16 runs and racking up 17 RBI. Those numbers make Bell look like one of the better sluggers in the league and his .270 batting average over the last month has...
