2B and SS Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 17

The urgency is definitely picking up around baseball, and it tends to every year once the fun and fanfare of the All-Star break are in the rear-view mirror.

Enrique Hernandez (1B/2B/SS/OF, LAD) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of leagues ANALYSIS: On a less stacked team, Enrique Hernandez might be a consistent everyday player. As it is, he's had to settle for being a super-utility guy on the team that has captured the last two National League pennants. Rough life, eh? The 27-year-old is actually on... Read More

Cavan Biggio (2B/OF, TOR) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 31% of leagues ANALYSIS: Cavan Biggio could be doing better; the rookie is hitting just .217/.351/.375 thus far. That said, he's putting up solid counting stats, with a rough full-season pace of 20 homers, 20 stolen bases, and 150 R+BI. The 24-year-old has also been a bit unlucky based... Read More

Roberto Perez (C, CLE) - Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 24% of leagues ANALYSIS: There may be no stronger argument for the juiced ball than the fact that Roberto Perez has 16 home runs and a .527 slugging percentage. Entering the season, the 30-year-old backstop had just 21 homers and a .340 SLG. Due to this lack... Read More

Nick Ahmed (SS, AZ) - Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: The only reason I can think that Diamondbacks shortstop Nick Ahmed is only owned in 6% of leagues is that he's boring. His .262/.311/.429 slash line admittedly doesn't jump off the page, but he does have nine home runs, six stolen bases,... Read More

J.P. Crawford (SS/3B, SEA) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Very quietly, on a team destined for another season in the cellar, Mariners shortstop J.P. Crawford has been breaking out. His season slash line sits at .284/.352/.475 with four home runs and one stolen base in 141 at-bats. His 10.1% walk rate... Read More

Joey Wendle (2B/SS/3B/OF, TB) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Rays utility infielder Joey Wendle was a fantasy darling last year. An unheralded 28-year-old rookie, Wendle slashed .300/.354/.435 with seven home runs and 16 stolen bases. As a speedy middle infielder with multi-position eligibility, it's no surprise he was a frequently added late-round... Read More

Kevin Newman (2B/SS, PIT) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 36% of leagues ANALYSIS: An afterthought in almost any fantasy league at the start of the year, Kevin Newman has forced owners to, in the immortal words of Birdman, put some respect on his name.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 34% of leagues ANALYSIS: A popular target in drafts this spring, Danny Jansen's performance over the first two months of the season can only be described as horrific, or with words that are impolite to use in mixed company. The rookie didn't homer until May 17, and... Read More

Eric Sogard (2B/SS, TOR) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of Leagues ANALYSIS: There haven't been many offensive highlights for the Toronto Blue Jays this year as the team only has two regular players hitting over .260 on the year.
