Waiver Wire Report: Austin Meadows Finally Gets the Call

Sorry, folks. No snazzy title today. This week's waiver wire report was going to follow a similar path to last week in that the sexiness was yet again lacking. Then, in an 11th hour move last night, the Pirates decided to call-up Austin Meadows to fill in for the injured Starling Marte. So I fired up the old lap top and added Meadows to this week's report. He might not be on the level of Ronald Acuna or Gleyber Torres, but Meadows is still a top-50 caliber prospect who has a chance to provide some decent value moving…

Waiver Wire Report: 99 Problems But a Mitch Ain’t One

The theme for this week's waiver wire report is "not sexy." If you're looking for a pole and some Def Leppard music, move along. There will be no pouring of sugar this week. Splenda maybe, but not sugar. Unfortunately, not every week has stud prospects and hot waiver wire adds. There are only so many Walker Buehlers and Mike Sorokas to go around. It would be nice if those type of players were available every week, but that would be unrealistic and turn us into spoiled brats. Even without the high profile names, this…

Waiver Wire Report: Buehler, Buehler?

As the calendar flips over into May, Major League Baseball is getting infested with high-upside rookies, especially on the mound. But don't worry, this is a good infestation. A good infestation? Does such a thing exist? Not when it's insect-related, but when the infestation consists of top prospects like Walker Buehler, Gleyber Torres, and Ronald Acuna, I'd consider that a very good infestation. Buehler and Mike Soroka are the first big name pitching prospects to lock up long-term rotation spots, and they lead the way in…

Waiver Wire Report: Dahl Breaks Out of Minor League Prison

The theme of this week is power. You'll find four hitters listed below, each of whom is capable of slugging 30-plus home runs over a full season. Two of the four are new to the fantasy scene, one toys with us for a few weeks every season, and the other is a high-upside youngster who has lost a few fights with the injury bug so far in his career. Sharing the spotlight with them this week is a potential closing option from the NL East, because someone is always looking for saves, right? You won't see some of the recent…

Waiver Wire Report: Need a Bud? Norris Steps Up in St. Louis

Let me start by thanking you all. Joey Lucchesi's ownership finally increased to more than 75% of Fantrax leagues, so he will not be included here again. I was getting a little worried that I might have to remind everyone for a third time about how damn good Lucchesi has been and could be for the rest of the season. Nope, not going there again. Instead, there's a fresh new batch of players this week hot out of the oven. Included in the six-pack of waiver wire recommendations below are two rookies, a Colorado arm (gasp!),…
