BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS:  For a guy that started the season as one of the hottest rookies, things got ugly in the middle of the first half and Walker is now just 30% owned.

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

Tyler Clippard Set Up To Be DBacks' Setup Man

Tyler Clippard did not have a great 2015 campaign. His strikeout rate was down, and his flyball rate was up. In 2014 with the Nationals, Clippard had an impressive 10.5 K/9 ratio. However it fell to 8.8 in Oakland in 2015, and then after going to the Mets in the same season it fell to... Read More

Jake Lamb (3B, ARI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues / All Keeper Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: The Diamondbacks decided to play musical chairs this offseason and during spring training as to who would get the everyday at-bats.
