2B and SS Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 25

In one unfortunate week (though suspiciously, not on Friday the 13th), the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs both lost their biggest star in the midst of the NL wildcard race, and are still fending off the Phillies and Mets on razor-thin margins.

2B and SS Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 24

Wow. Well, if we all learned anything about sports in the past couple of days, it's that we can all be glad that there is far less baggage attached to our top draft picks in fantasy baseball than there is in fantasy football.

Josh VanMeter (1B/2B/3B/OF, CIN) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of leagues ANALYSIS: Josh VanMeter is what some call a boring guy; he provides a little bit of everything when he plays, but nothing outstanding. Of course, he’s not terrible in any category either. While some will look the other way, this is exactly the type... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: After not finding a trade partner for Asdrubal Cabrera at the end of July, Texas moved on from the soon-to-be free agent.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: A latecomer to the majors, 29-year-old Austin Nola was finally called up by the Mariners after spending seven years in the Marlins' minor league system.

Hanser Alberto (2B/3B, BAL) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of leagues ANALYSIS: Under-the-radar players often make it to the waiver wire. Looking at his first three seasons as an MLB player, all three with negative WAR production, it was normal that Hanser Alberto was left off of most fantasy rosters. This year, in his first season in... Read More

Jason Kipnis (2B/OF, CLE) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of leagues ANALYSIS: After two completely mediocre seasons, Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis is having a bit of a mini-renaissance as of late, seemingly drawing upon the last well of his old-man strength.

With so many schools starting back incredibly soon (if they haven't already), and so many of us being impacted by the changing of the seasons (whether you have kids in school, you teach, or you're a student yourself), it's important to take a moment to appreciate the days when we have spare time to spend...

Luis Arraez (2B/3B/OF, MIN) - Week 21 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of leagues ANALYSIS: Many words have already been written about the young offensive explosion that is taking place this season. Rookie hitters are mashing, and perhaps one of the most overlooked is Twins infielder Luis Arraez. Minnesota called him up back in May and he has been a... Read More

Josh VanMeter (2B/3B/OF, CIN) - Week 21 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Cincinnati Reds infielder/outfielder Josh VanMeter entered Sunday's action on a six-game hitting streak.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Pittsburgh Pirates middle infielder Kevin Newman has had a quietly steady first full season in the majors.

Starlin Castro (2B/3B, MIA) - Week 21 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 22% of Leagues ANALYSIS: As much as I'm a believer in Starlin Castro's abilities, I must acknowledge his stay in Miami hasn't been glorious. Although he finished 2018 with a 2.3 WAR (his best since 2014) and a wRC+ of 101, those numbers were nothing otherworldly. In 2019,... Read More

Freddy Galvis (2B/SS, CIN) - Week 21 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of Leagues ANALYSIS: In a little bit of a puzzling move, the Toronto Blue Jays moved on from infielder Freddy Galvis and put him on waivers after finding no market for him at the trade deadline. The Reds pounced since Galvis was having a good season in Toronto.... Read More

Jason Kipnis (2B, CLE) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 35% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Jason Kipnis has gone from a deep-league useful player to a staple in standard-sized and 12+ teams leagues. He's still being overlooked for someone with the production he's showing, so you may very well consider adding him to your lineup if you... Read More

Cavan Biggio (2B/OF, TOR) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of leagues ANALYSIS: Cavan Biggio is becoming a household name in our waiver wire. People never learn. I'm not going to blame them, though, as Biggio is the less hyped of Toronto's Baby Boom Trio (along with Bo Bichette and Vladimir Guerrero Jr.). But it is about... Read More

Kolten Wong (2B, STL) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues OWNED IN: 31% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Wong's ownership is extremely low for such a complete player. This season, Wong is on pace for his most plate appearances since 2015. He's already matched last season's PA numbers and is improving each and every one of his stats. He's walking more (from 7.6...

Isan Diaz (2B/SS, MIA) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of leagues ANALYSIS: Marlins rookie Isan Diaz already gave us one of the year's best moments, homering in his first at-bat off of Jacob deGrom while his parents were being interviewed in the stands, resulting in the type of pure elation that makes baseball fandom so special. But putting... Read More

Josh VanMeter (2B/3B/OF, CIN) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Not appearing on anyone's top prospect lists for the Reds heading into 2019, Cincinnati rookie Josh VanMeter has nevertheless impressed after being recalled for the second time on July 18.

2B and SS Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 19

Well, the trade deadline came and went, and as many of us sat glaze-eyed for hours endlessly refreshing the internet search results to view incoming deals, we found ourselves sourly disappointed until nearly the final hour.

Howie Kendrick (1B/2B/3B/OF, WSH) - Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 35% of leagues ANALYSIS: For someone 35 years old (who saw his last season cut short because of an Achilles injury after playing just 40 games), what we're watching Howie Kendrick put together this season in limited playing time is quite impressive. He's hustling for plate appearances... Read More

Austin Nola (1B/2B, SEA) - Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: A relatively unheralded catching prospect for the Marlins, the Mariners signed Austin Nola as a minor league free agent this winter, and promoted him to the big league roster in June.

Travis Demeritte (2B/SS, DET) - Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: The Tigers shipped closer Shane Greene to the Atlanta Braves, getting a pair of quality prospects in return - left-hander Joey Wentz and infielder-turned-outfielder Travis Demeritte.
