Kolten Wong (2B, STL) - Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 21% of leagues ANALYSIS: After Kolten Wong's torrid start predictably subsided, fantasy owners largely hopped off the train as quickly as they'd hopped onto it. While he's hitting just .234/.323/.373 overall, he also has six home runs and is a perfect 1o-for-1o on stolen base attempts. He has... Read More

Orlando Arcia (SS, MIL) - Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Orlando Arcia entered the 2019 season in post-hype sleeper mode after putting an end to a miserable 2018 campaign.

Scott Kingery (3B/SS/OF, PHI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 28% of Leagues ANALYSIS: In the absence of outfielder Odubel Herrera (administrative leave), Scott Kingery has found himself earning more regular playing time for the Philadelphia Phillies, particularly in center field.

Cavan Biggio (2B/SS, TOR) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Toronto Blue Jays rookie infielder Cavan Biggio has one of the more intriguing minor league profiles of any recent call-up.

Brendan Rodgers (SS, COL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 31% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Coors Field effect has yet to grace the bat of Colorado Rockies rookie shortstop Brendan Rodgers and, because of this, he’s still widely available in fantasy leagues.

David Fletcher (2B/3B/SS/OF, LAA) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 36% of All Leagues ANALYSIS: Coming into 2019, David Fletcher was only on the radar in the deepest of leagues. With a high-contact, low-power profile, Fletcher produced little of consequence in 2018; posting a triple-slash of .275/.316/.363 with an .088 ISO and a.297 wOBA that produced... Read More

Cavan Biggio (2B/SS, TOR) - Week 9 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Blue Jays have had some well-documented issues at second base this season whether it be from injury or lack of performance, and they have recently decided to give the call to high-performing prospect (and son of HOFer Craig Biggio) Cavan Biggio. The 24-year... Read More

Brendan Rodgers (SS, COL) - Week 9 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 33% of Leagues ANALYSIS:  Drafted third in 2015, Brendan Rodgers was known as an all-around shortstop that could drive the ball to all fields with plenty of power.

Nicky Lopez (2B/SS, KCR) - Week 9 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Nicky Lopez was not seen by many as a top player in the Royals farm system coming into the season, he was ranked as the team's eighth best prospect by MLB Pipeline.

In the blink of an eye we find ourselves well into the latter-half of May, and as always, we are still trying to find answers and long-term truths.

Nicky Lopez (SS, KC) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of leagues ANALYSIS: Less heralded than many of the other prospects who debuted this week, Nicky Lopez is nonetheless an intriguing addition for fantasy owners. The 24-year-old's calling card throughout his minor league career has been excellent contact ability and plate discipline. He cranked those attributes to... Read More

Keston Hiura (2B, MIL) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 47% of leagues ANALYSIS: In most competitive leagues with daily moves, with the possible exception of extremely shallow formats, you may well have already missed your chance to add Keston Hiura.

Ronny Rodriguez (1B/2B/SS/3B, DET) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: The Tigers have gotten quite a performance out of Ronny Rodriguez, an unheralded utility infielder who didn't do much with the bat last year. 2019 has been a different story however, as the shortstop is slashing a tidy .294/.337/.671 with six home...

Ronny Rodriguez (1B/2B/3B/SS, DET) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 11% of leagues ANALYSIS: Is Ronny Rodriguez's true talent level reflected in his current .305/.344/.644 line? Absolutely not, but that doesn't mean he can't be useful to your fantasy squad. Even after this hot streak peters out, the 27-year-old may have some sneaky value in deep and AL-only... Read More

Eric Sogard (2B/SS, TOR) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Since the Toronto Blue Jays called up Eric Sogard to the big leagues, he's done nothing but produce.

Baseball is neither fair nor consistent, this much we all know. It is however, predictable.

Cole Tucker (SS, PIT) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of leagues ANALYSIS: Quickly forgotten by many fantasy owners after Carter Kieboom's promotion a few days ago, Cole Tucker is an intriguing shortstop prospect in his own right.
