Joe Ross (SP, WAS) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 13% of Fleaflicker Leagues

ANALYSIS: Heeeeeeee's baaaaaaaaack. The Washington Nationals are calling up Joe Ross again to join the starting rotation, at least for the time being. The impressive young hurler pitched very well in his first MLB stint earlier in the season, and I'm expecting more of the same from him this time around. Ross may only get a few starts, as Strasburg is expected to return from the DL in the near future, but until that time he makes for a great waiver wire pickup in just about any league where you're looking to add pitching depth. A two-start pitcher this week, Ross is slated to face off against the putrid Mets offense, followed by a hit-or-miss Pirates team. In his first three starts this season, Ross impressed with a 2.66 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and an awesome 23:2 K:BB ratio over 20 1/2 IP (along with two wins). Young pitchers are always a bit risky in fantasy baseball, but I think the upside is just too good here. I've already added him in any league where he was available, and recommend that you do the same if you can spare the near-term roster space.
