Jack Leiter- Starting Pitcher Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Adds

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

ROSTERED IN: 20% of Leagues

ANALYSIS: The Texas Rangers have promoted pitching prospect Jack Leiter from Triple-A Round Rock and will make his big-league debut on Thursday against the Detroit Tigers. It's unclear how long Leiter's first tour of duty in the leagues will last as the Rangers recently added Michael Lorenzen to the rotation and also have Nathan Eovaldi, Jon Gray, Dane Dunning, and Andrew Heaney in the rotation.

Nonetheless, Leiter is certainly worth an add for at least Thursday's start against a Tigers team that entered play on Tuesday sitting 27th with a .278 wOBA and 23rd with a 24.6% K%. The Rangers' No. 2-ranked pitching prospect, according to MLB Pipeline, has one of the better matchups in the league you could ask for in his big-league debut.

If Leiter dominates the Tigers, it's tough to see the club sending the prized righty back to the minors right away. He leads the minors with 25 strikeouts in his 14 1/3 innings on the young season, walking just three in that time. He has allowed four homers as well and has struggled with control in his young professional career but the punchouts have consistently been there with authority.

He is certainly worthy of a pickup for Thursday's start against the light-hitting Tigers before a plan for the 23-year-old is revealed afterward.
