Garrett Cooper (1B/OF, MIA) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 35% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS:  It doesn’t look like Garrett Cooper intends to slow down anytime soon.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: There was not a lot of fanfare when the Twins recalled little known left-hander Devin Smeltzer to make a start in the middle of last week.

Zac Gallen (SP, MIA) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Miami Marlins pitching prospect Zac Gallen is continuing to absolutely dominate Triple-A hitters this season.

Pablo Lopez (SP, MIA) - Week 9 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of Leagues ANALYSIS:  The profile on Pablo Lopez is very interesting up to this point. He’s dominated at home and has been terrible on the road.

Caleb Smith (SP, MIA) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Marlins left-hander Caleb Smith is an inning away from starting off the 2019 campaign with three straight quality starts, having only gone five innings in his season debut.

Trevor Richards (SP, MIA) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: There has been much ado about the Marlins young pitching staff to kick off the 2019 campaign, and it is easy to see why. Of that group, right-hander Trevor Richards may have the most promise, but also the most volatility. Case in... Read More

Sergio Romo (SP/RP, MIA) - Week 1 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 31% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Despite starting a few games last season, make no mistake, Romo was a closer last year. He earned 25 saves with a 10.02 K/9, a 2.67 BB/9 and a 4.14 ERA - with a 3.32 SIERA. He is now in line to be... Read More

Marlins Select Connor Scott with Pick 13

The Miami Marlins have selected outfielder Connor Scott with pick No. 13 in the MLB amateur draft out of high school. Scott went to high school near Tampa and is a raw, long-term upside pick.

J.T. Realmuto (C, MIA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 44% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: A popular sleeper heading into 2016, Realmuto disappointed out of the gate.

Adam Conley (MIA, SP) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ team leagues OWNED IN: 25% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: This post would have been more positive had yesterday gone a bit better.

Cut List (Week 2): Players to Consider Cutting Bait On…

The first week of the season is always interesting. Fantasy players are overreacting like crazy to everything they see, or don't see, from their picks.

Justin Bour (MIA, 1B) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7 Percent of Leagues ANALYSIS: Justin Bour is another guy with a Quad-A profile whose solid year is an outlier on a disappointing team.

David Phelps (SP, MIA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep and NL-Only leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Every team has to have pitchers that simply eat innings and deliver quality starts.

Adeiny Hechavarria (SS, MIA) - Waiver Wire Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Adeiny Hechavarria might not be the most gifted player on the Marlins, but he certainly makes up for it in a multitude of ways. The 23-year-old is only in his third full season and has demonstrated that he can provide positive stats for fantasy owners...

Michael Morse (1B/OF, MIA) - Waiver Wire Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues OWNED IN: 58% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Morse has never really had the supporting cast and talent around him that he does now in Miami. Outfielders Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich, Marcell Ozuna, and newly acquired Dee Gordon make the Marlins lineup solid. Morse will bring a veteran presence to a young... Read More

Casey McGehee (3B, MIA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: I’ll start off by saying Casey McGehee will not be any threat to the front-end Third Basemen, this will just be about his ability to play for your fantasy team as opposed to the average 3B.
