Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire (Jun. 16th)

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

                   

We said he was a sleeper before the season, and guess what...

If your team is in need of a boost we suggest looking at some of these gentlemen below. Not only are these players available, their on fire! You better hurry though, because the percentages (percent owned in Yahoo leagues) you see next to the players name will be rising quickly.

Aubrey Huff, OF, SF (66)

For the second week in a row a Giant is headlining the waiver wire.  It is actually fitting since Buster Posey was actually the reason Huff was moved from 1B to the OF.  Since the move the Huffernutter has been on fire.  This week at the plate Huff smashed in 3 home runs, 8 RBI and is hitting .350 in that span.  Huff is a good pickup to add some OF depth since he is on such a hot streak and can be placed in multiple positions.

Fantasy Baseball Risers and Fallers (Jun. 11th)

Friday, June 11th, 2010

Miguel who?

We’re now two months into the fantasy season and odds are that your team is currently battling an injury or two. Perhaps you’re just looking to inject some new life into your lineup and ride a hot hand. Here at FBS, our risers and fallers detail the guys that are heating up and those that are cooling down, so you can outsmart all of the owners in your league.

Risers

1.Buster Posey, C/1B, San Francisco: The Giants simply couldn’t keep his bat in the minors any longer. Posey was called up last week and has certainly shown he belongs. He’s currently sporting a line of .450/1/6 in 40 Abs including seven multi-hit games in his last twelve. He also just hit his first homer Wednesday night, so he could be finding his groove. He’s had no problem adjusting to big-league pitching and doesn’t belong on any waiver wire at this point. Make sure he’s not available in your league, but if he is, scoop him up immediately, pat yourself on the back, and enjoy the ride. This kid’s for real. (more…)

Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire (Jun. 10th)

Get him while you can.

Is your team missing a piece? Do you have an injury that is hurting your team? Is one of your role players slumping? Well you came to the right place,  here is a list of some sure fire pickups to add to your fantasy baseball squad both in the field and on the mound.

Buster Posey, SF, C (71)

Some fantasy owners just skip starting a Catcher if they don’t have one of the top athletes at that position.  Buster Posey should not sit on your waiver list anymore, and certainly not on your bench.  After being called up to the bigs only 10 days ago, he is already making big moves as a legit fantasy starter.  Posey is hitting .455 and has 4 RBI in that stretch.  Hurry up and pick up Posey while you still can.

Mark Lowe

Lowe needs time to recover.

Mark Lowe-R-Mariners

Seattle manager Don Wakamatsu acknowledged on Monday that Mark Lowe, sidelines with back inflammation in early May, is still far from returning to the Mariner’s bullpen. Lowe had a 3.75 ERA over his first 11 appearances this season.

Adam Moore-C-Mariners

Adam Moore was able to take batting practice on Monday after suffering a leg injury about two weeks ago while hitting first base awkwardly. The key to his return will be running the bases, which he has yet to do. (more…)
