2016 Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Adds by MLB Position

Travis Shaw (3B, MIL) - 2017 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers & Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target ~275

CURRENT ADP: 311

ANALYSIS: Travis Shaw’s first full season in the majors got off to a good start, but he wasn’t able to keep the momentum going and ended up as the clear weak link in a stacked Red Sox lineup. Now in Milwaukee, he’ll get to play half his games in Miller Park, where left-handed power plays way up. Shaw hit 16 homers last season, and it’s easy to see him pushing that total into the 20–25 range.

Jung Ho Kang (3B, PIT) - 2017 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers & Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target ~210

CURRENT ADP: 242

ANALYSIS: The gruesome knee injury that cut Jung Ho Kang’s rookie season short also took a chunk out of his second year in the majors. When he was on the field, though, he produced. Kang hit 21 homers in just 370 plate appearances and added nearly four percentage points to his walk rate while holding his strikeout rate steady. So why is he languishing until the late rounds in most drafts? Unfortunately, it’s not just

...continue reading

Nick Castellanos (3B, DET) - 2017 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers & Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target ~180

CURRENT ADP: 203

ANALYSIS: Nick Castellanos was in the midst of a breakout last season before injury decommissioned him for most of the second half. Despite a steady upward trend in his production since breaking into the big leagues, Castellanos has yet to improve on his plate approach or contact issues. If he’d made enough plate appearances, Castellanos would have tied for the 11th-worst swinging strike rate and 19th-worst contact rate among qualified hitters. You can make that

...continue reading

Mike Moustakas (3B, KC) - 2017 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers & Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target ~170

CURRENT ADP: 195

ANALYSIS: Mike Moustakas enjoyed a long-awaited breakthrough in 2015, hitting .284 with 22 home runs. Through the first month of last season, he looked well on his way to an even better follow-up. Unfortunately, a torn ACL ended his season prematurely, but he’s expected to be 100 percent before the start of the upcoming season. It’s understandable that he’s something of a forgotten man given the crazy depth at the hot corner this season, but Moustakas

...continue reading

Ryon Healy (3B, OAK) - 2017 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers & Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target ~170

CURRENT ADP: 190

ANALYSIS: Ryon Healy was lightly regarded as a minor leaguer, barely mentioned by prospect mavens when they reviewed Oakland’s decidedly unspectacular farm system. Despite always being on the old side for his level, Healy hadn’t distinguished himself in his first three minor league seasons. In 2016, however, he began raking at Double-A, and didn’t stop even as he was promoted to the majors midseason.  Healy totaled 27 homers – half of them in the majors

Third Base Draft Values and Sleepers for 2017

RotoBaller's draft values and sleepers series rolls on! Today, we'll discuss some early third base draft values and potential sleepers for the 2017 fantasy baseball season. The quality and depth of the pool at the hot corner this season is astonishing. The top four players at the position are first-rounders, and at least a dozen more are worthy options to be your primary third baseman. Even beyond that, there are several intriguing names. Let's look at a few of them, shall we? Editor's note: Be sure to also check out our ...continue reading

Jedd Gyorko (2B/3B/SS, STL) - 2017 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers & Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target ~215

CURRENT ADP: 240

ANALYSIS: Jedd Gyorko’s first season in St. Louis couldn’t have gone much better. He took advantage of Kolten Wong’s early struggles and Jhonny Peralta’s injury, turning himself into a versatile and indispensable member of the Cardinals’ infield. Gyorko launched 30 home runs in just 438 plate appearances, and has a chance to emerge as the primary third baseman this year. For fantasy purposes, however, he retains eligibility at both

Early ADP Values for Fantasy Baseball: Third Base

Opening Day is approximately two months away, but it's never too soon to start making those draft lists. Today I'm here to take a look at some overvalued, undervalued and fair value 3B for the 2017 fantasy baseball season. ADP data from early NFBC rankings can give us a glimpse into what players may be great values and who should be passed over at the hot corner. Here are some players to monitor in preseason mock drafts to see how their respective values may shift before Spring Training and the fantasy baseball season...continue reading

2016 in Review: Third Base (3B) Values

Our review of the 2016 fantasy baseball season continues with a look at some of the best values at third base. Third Base Values of 2016 Justin Turner, Los Angeles Dodgers If there is one player to whom the Dodgers can attribute their second half success, it has to be Justin Turner. While their pitching staff resembled an ER unit and Yasiel Puig was posting selfies in Triple-A, Turner single-handedly carried the Dodger offense. He got off to a slow start in 2016, hitting .247 and going homerless in April. May...continue reading

2016 In Review: Third Base (3B) Breakouts

Our review of the 2016 fantasy baseball season continues with a look at some of the breakout performances at third base. Breakout Third Basemen in 2016 Jake Lamb, Arizona Diamondbacks Last winter, the RotoBaller staff compiled its 2016 rankings. I had Lamb 16th among third basemen, higher than any of the half-dozen colleagues who participated. His solid minor league performances were backed up by some impressive MLB peripherals, even if the results to that point had been underwhelming. Ultimately, I pegged him as a solid CI option in deeper mixers, while his...continue reading

Reviewing Bill Dubiel's Bold Predictions for 2016

What’s even more fun than making bold predictions? Looking back at the end of the season to see how good (or so, so hilariously bad) they were.

Contact Rate Risers and Fallers in Week 26: Start or Sit?

RotoBallers, as always, we’re constantly trying to come up with new features that will help you dominate your fantasy leagues. Recently, we’ve built a tool that identifies the biggest trends in contact rate over the last seven days. The tool can be found here. Keep in mind, any statistic being viewed in such a small sample size will never be incredibly predictive on a granular level. But if any stat can be looked at over seven days, it's contact rate which stabilizes very quickly. What this tool provides is a quick indicator...continue reading

Deeper Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 25 (National League)

This is the end... my only friend, the end... For some fantasy baseball owners, the season was a brutal mix of frustration and disappointment. If you're reading this, however, you're still grinding and looking for a chance to pull out a late-season victory. Good luck the rest of the way! This list represents players who haven't yet garnered a great deal of attention in mixed-leagues, streaming options suitable only for deeper leagues, or category specialists who may fill a specific need on your NL-only roster. Fantasy owners needing help should be on the lookout...continue reading

Yulieski Gurriel (3B, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Add in All Leagues Owned in: 21% of Fleaflicker Leagues Analysis: The 28-33 range seems to be a fashionable time for veteran stars from South Korea, Japan, and Cuba to finally grace the MLB with their presence. 32-year old Yulieski Gurriel has debuted with a bang in the talented Houston infield. Gurriel was a 15-year veteran of the Cuban and Japanese leagues and throughout that span he produced a slash line of .335/.417/.580, 250 HR, 121 SB, an XBH rate of 11.3%, a walk rate of 11.1%, and a fantastic K...continue reading

Jung Ho Kang (3B/SS, PIT) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 47% of Fleaflicker Leagues EXPERT ANALYSIS: Straight fire. That's the only way to describe the start Jung Ho Kang has had to September. Kang had four HR and 10 RBI in a five game span from September 6 - 10 and has knocked out 14 hits in 30 at-bats for the month. His hot streak actually extends even further back into August, as he is slashing a ridiculous .471/.550/.853 over the past 28 days. As long...continue reading

Deeper Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 24 (National League)

Football season is officially underway, but us die-hard baseball fans are still dedicated to the grind all the way to the bitter end. Whether you're in a crucial playoff battle or just hoping to stay out of the cellar, there are still waiver wire options that can improve your squad. This list represents players who haven't yet garnered a great deal of attention in mixed-leagues, streaming options suitable only for deeper leagues, or category specialists who may fill a specific need on your NL-only roster. Fantasy owners needing help should be on the lookout...continue reading

Dynasty Review: Deep Fantasy League Advice for Week 24

Last week's column included several new(ish) pitchers. Unsurprisingly, Jose De Leon was the most impressive. Sure, he allowed three runs over his six frames, but he also recorded nine strikeouts with a superb 18.6 percent swinging strike rate. He made his second big league start last night (it's still in the future from my perspective). Brock Stewart and Jharel...continue reading

Week 24 Waiver Wire: First Base (1B) and Third Base (3B)

If you play in a head-to-head league, chances are you’re entering into the first week of the playoffs today. Your entire season hangs in the balance. Those of you in rotisserie leagues have a bit more runway to work with, but as the end of the year approaches, every at-bat takes on added importance. Fortunately, as we have all season long, RotoBaller has all the tools you need to bring home a championship. After reading about this week’s corner infield adds, head over to the Waiver Wire Wizard for even more...continue reading

Ryan Schimpf (2B/3B, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Fleaflicker Leagues EXPERT ANALYSIS: He's still at it. Chances are you've heard about Ryan Schimpf's power, but here are some advanced stats that will drive that point home. Schimpf's .600 SLG would place him second in the majors behind just Big Papi, if he had enough at-bats to qualify. Technically, Gary Sanchez would be higher at .707, but his sample size is even smaller....continue reading

The Cut List (Week 23): Players To Consider Cutting Bait On

It's playoff time folks! If you've made it this far congratulations. Whether you're in the winners' bracket or just playing for pride, it's time to make some tough decisions to end your seasons on a high note. And with that, if you have someone who is really becoming a waste of roster space, it's time to get rid of him. The longer you hang on, the lower your chances are of making the playoffs and winning your leagues. In that spirit, I'm doing away with the Reverse Jinx section just to...continue reading

Top MLB Prospects to Claim Off the Waiver Wire in Week 23

Well guys. We’ve made it to September. The MLB Ready Top 30 Prospects list is over because rosters have officially expanded. Now, it is time to tell you who is in the big leagues that needs to be added. In another article, I will cover 10 other names who have yet to be promoted who could potentially have value. In today’s issue, we're covering the top prospects currently in the big leagues. To be clear, these are guys who have been promoted recently (August 28 is the cut-off), and it must have...continue reading

Week 23 Waiver Wire: First Base (1B) and Third Base (3B)

Less than a month remains before the end of another baseball season. Where does the time go? Hopefully, for you, it’s gone into providing some TLC to your fantasy squad that has you in position for a championship. After all, we don’t want no scrubs. But if you’re still chasing waterfalls, here are some players who can help. Editor's Note: Purchase a full season NFL Premium Pass (including Draft Kit + DFS Premium), and also get MLB Premium + DFS for free through October. Premium DFS lineup picks, expert lineups, tools and more...continue reading

Alex Bregman (3B/SS, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 55 percent of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: Alex Bregman’s failure to immediately set the world on fire led to many fantasy owners souring on him. Such is life for any top prospect. But after going just 2-for-42 to open his Major League career, Bregman has shown the form that had so many riding the hype train before his arrival. He’s hitting .307/.360/.545 over the last four weeks, with five home runs and 42 R+RBI in...continue reading

Eugenio Suarez (3B/SS, CIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 58% of Fleaflicker Leagues EXPERT ANALYSIS: The Reds' youth movement is a necessary step for a rebuilding franchise stuck in last place. With all the young outfielders coming up in Cincinnati, it's easy to forget Eugenio Suarez is a big part of that movement at just 25 years old. Suarez started the year hot, but quickly faded and became droppable by the All-Star break for owners in shallow leagues. His power production has remained...continue reading

The Cut List (Week 22): Players To Consider Cutting Bait On

What's up RotoBallers. There are only six weeks left in the regular season, meaning the playoffs are either starting or only a couple of weeks away. Needless to say, it's no time to hold onto guys out of sentimental value. And with that, if you have someone who is really becoming a waste of roster space, it's time to get rid of him. The longer you hang on, the lower your chances are of making the playoffs and winning your leagues. In that spirit, I'm doing away with the Reverse Jinx...continue reading

MLB Ready Prospects: Top 30 Fantasy Rankings for Impact Rookies (Week 22)

Welcome back RotoBallers. This will be last Top 30 fantasy prospect rankings columns before rosters expand, and will likely be one of the last article series formatted like this until the offseason. As I mentioned in the last article, there are some players who definitely have September value and most of these guys will be valuable to owners in some kind of format. Right now, I would really only say that the top six guys are going to have value in all leagues, but everyone on this list would have some value, even...continue reading

Week 22 Waiver Wire: First Base (1B) and Third Base (3B)

It’s crunch time! For head-to-head owners, there are just a few weeks left to jockey for playoff positioning. In roto leagues, owners are scratching and clawing for every point possible. As always, RotoBaller is here to help. In addition to the players we’ll cover in this space, our waiver wire wizard is updated daily and offers plenty of options to aid your push for glory. Let’s get to it. Editor's Note: Purchase a full season NFL Premium Pass (including Draft Kit + DFS Premium), and also get MLB Premium + DFS for free...continue reading

Deeper Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 21 (National League)

Before we start, I'd like to apologize for putting Justin Bour on here a couple weeks ago - instead of coming off the DL, he gets transferred to the 60-day. Who knew? Just remember who told you to pick up Robbie Ray a week ago before he was trendy... This list represents players who haven't yet garnered a great deal of attention in mixed-leagues, streaming options suitable only for deeper leagues,...continue reading

Yulieski Gurriel (3B, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ team leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: Yulieski Gurriel is a 32-year old veteran of international baseball, and he has finally made his arrival in the MLB to help the Astros make a postseason run. Since he has had just 56 minor league AB across four levels this year and has just three MLB AB (though he took a walk and got a hit with zero K for an initial .833 OPS), let's take a look at his figures from...continue reading

Alex Bregman (3B/SS, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in all leagues OWNED IN: 43% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: Wow, what a relief. After 77 AB in the MLB after just 586 minor league AB, we were all beginning to think that Alex Bregman wasn't going to be a superstar from the very start of his big league career. First off, Bregman tore through the minors at a devastating pace and improved at every level. He had a .698 OPS at the Single-A level, then .839 at A+...continue reading

The Cut List (Week 21): Players To Consider Cutting Bait On

There are only six weeks left in the regular season, meaning the playoffs are either starting or only a couple of weeks away. Needless to say, it's no time to hold onto guys out of sentimental value. And with that, if you have someone who is really becoming a waste of roster space, it's time to get rid of him.

Pedro Alvarez (1B/3B) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, AL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 20% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Pedro Alvarez might be a part-time player, but he provides enough power when in the lineup to justify a roster spot in many formats. He’s smacked 10 HR in just 92 AB since the break, hitting .283/.313/.641 during that time. Like Moss, he strikes out a ton, and he’s even more useless against lefties. Still, if you’re prepared for a bit of maintenance, Alvarez can be a positive...continue reading

Yangervis Solarte (1B/2B/3B, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, NL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 31% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Yangervis Solarte has cooled a bit recently, but he still deserves to be more widely owned than he is right now. Prorate his current numbers to a full season and here’s what you get: .285, 26 HR, 88 R, 104 RBI. That’s borderline elite production at either corner, and he’s eligible at second base, to boot. Yet you can still acquire him for absolutely nothing in over two-thirds...continue reading

Howie Kendrick (1B/2B/3B/OF, LAD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, NL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 41% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Howie Kendrick got off to a brutal start this year, but he’s since recovered from that initial stumble. The veteran has been sneakily excellent since the break, slashing .314/.382/.508 with four homers and 33 R+RBI. That impressive resurgence has helped the Dodgers overtake the Giants in the NL West race, and has helped some fantasy owners,...continue reading

Alex Bregman (3B/SS, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, AL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 43% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Alex Bregman’s failure to immediately set the world on fire led to many fantasy owners souring on him. But after going just 2-for-42 to open his Major League career, Bregman has shown the form that had so many riding the hype train before his arrival. He’s hitting .328/.370/.567 over that span, and nearly half of his 22 hits have gone for extra bases. The recent promotion of Yulieski...continue reading

Week 21 Waiver Wire: First Base (1B) and Third Base (3B)

Is it really almost September? It seems like just yesterday that we were all expecting the tandem of Byung Ho Park and Miguel Sano to lead the Twins to the promised land...or at least hit a laughable amount of homers. Okay, so maybe that was just me. Regardless, we're bearing down on the end of another season, and time is running out for those of us who need to make a run at fantasy gold....continue reading

MLB Ready Prospects: Top 30 Fantasy Rankings for Impact Rookies (Week 21)

What a week for prospects! Dansby Swanson was promoted by Atlanta, Yulieski Gurriel was promoted by Houston and Alex Bregman is starting to look like a stud again. Obviously there are going to be some owners scared of Gurriel just because every Houston Astros’ prospect promoted this season has struggled early, but the recent hot streak of Bregman should ease some concerns. One thing to add...continue reading

Jedd Gyorko (1B/2B/SS/3B, STL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ team leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: If you, like myself, thought Jedd Gyorko offered valuable versatility as a power hitting 2B/SS combo, then the fact that he is now eligible at four infield positions must really get you excited. First off, Gyorko has improved his plate discipline at a nice margin. Last season he had a 23.4% strikeout rate and meager 5.9% walk rate. This season he is striking out 3% less frequently and...continue reading

Yasmany Tomas (3B/OF, ARI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in all leagues OWNED IN: 55% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: It is hard to be such a good power hitter as quietly as Yasmany Tomas has been this year. Tomas has had just one mediocre month, which was May. He had a .656 OPS and a single HR in 79 AB. Other than that, he has been slugging like crazy. He isn't big on plate discipline or taking walks as shown by his .311 OBP, 5.5% walk rate, and...continue reading

Week 20 Buy and Sell for Fantasy Baseball

Even with the trade deadline having passed in most leagues, this is the most fun time of the year to be a fantasy owner. The stakes are high, and the difference between a championship and heartbreak can be as small as making one transaction at the right time. Lucky for you, RotoBaller has all the tools you’ll need to make these important decisions down the stretch. After you’ve checked out this week’s buy and sell recommendations, head over to our waiver wire Rankings Wizard tool for more advice and...continue reading

Alex Bregman (3B/SS, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Alex Bregman, a hyped prospect who spent all of 146 games in the minors, started his Major League career with two hits and an unbelievable .071 BABIP in his first 38 at bats. Unlike many fantasy managers, his real-life skipper A.J. Hinch stuck with him, and it’s started to pay off. Since his third Major League game, Bregman’s hard hit and line drive rates have been on an upward trend....continue reading

The Cut List (Week 20): Players To Consider Cutting Bait On

Things are getting interesting in the realm fantasy baseball. Some rookies are getting called up, injuries are popping up, roles are changing. Unfortunately, that means some MLB players and their fantasy baseball owners are going to be on the wrong end of these shifts. And with that, if you have someone who is really becoming a waste of roster space, it's time to get rid of them. The longer you hang on, the lower your chances of making the playoffs and winnings your leagues. So let's take a look at who...continue reading

Cheslor Cuthbert (3B, KC) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in AL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 8% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: The Royals’ quest for a repeat and a third straight AL pennant is all but dead in the water, but it’s not because of Cheslor Cuthbert. He’s filled in quite well for the injured Mike Moustakas at the hot corner, hitting .298/.334/.454 with 10 homers. Since moving up to the two-hole last month, Cuthbert’s been...continue reading

Cesar Hernandez (2B/3B/SS, PHI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, NL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 23% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Cesar Hernandez didn’t run much in the first half, and wasn’t particularly efficient when he did; he was just 6-for-11 on stolen base attempts. Since the break, though, he’s swiped seven bags in 10 tries. He’s continued to hit for average, but another notable improvement in the second half has been his plate discipline. He’s already walked more times in the last month (20) than he did in...continue reading

Dynasty Review: Deep Fantasy League Advice for Week 20

We're into the final quarter-season of fantasy baseball. Teams are starting to dig deep as they try to get a read on the future of their franchise. Fantasy owners will need to remain nimble. Whether you're a contender or a rebuilder, snagging quality players off the waiver wire is an important part of August and September. Last week, Francisco Mejia appeared in this column for the second time this season. Generally, I try to avoid repeats unless some bit of news demands attention. In Mejia's case, it was a long hitting...continue reading

Week 20 Waiver Wire: First Base (1B) and Third Base (3B)

MLB Ready Prospects: Top 30 Fantasy Rankings for Impact Rookies (Week 20)

Geez, Mookie Betts. That guy is too good. In general, just how about that Boston Red Sox outfield? They’ve got Betts in right field who can do everything imaginable. They’ve got Jackie Bradley Jr. in the midst of a breakout season, who can also do everything. And they also have Andrew Benintendi who has yet...continue reading
