Desmond Joins the Rockies Juggernaut

First reported by Ken Rosenthal, former Ranger Ian Desmond signed a five-year, $70 million deal with the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday morning. This deal, while great news for Desmond, carries with it several questions. Where are the Rockies going to play this guy? Moving him back to shortstop is clearly off the table, as that spot... Read More

Rockies Shock, Sign Ian Desmond: Where Will He Play?

Just one year removed from an abysmal 2015 season, both at the plate and the hot corner, and a prolonged free agency that saw him float around the league with seemingly no suitors, Ian Desmond finally got paid. The converted left fielder took a bet on himself in 2016, signing a one-year, $8 million contract... Read More

Week 25 Waiver Wire Pickups: Outfield

It's Week 25, also known as the final week of the season for the two teams contending for the championship. The waiver wire is sparse with talent that will truly push a team over the final hill. After all, you're going up against the best team in your league (aside from your own, of course).... Read More

Week 24 Waiver Wire Pickups: Outfield

In the playoffs, every category counts. You could be dominating the major columns like batting average and ERA, but have your success undermined by saves and stolen bases. Remember, if your teams hits 30 more home runs than your opponent, it's just as valuable as winning the stolen bases category by a margin of 2-to-1.... Read More

Welcome to the Back From The Dead edition of Outfield Waiver Wire Pickups. We are officially in the fantasy baseball playoffs.

Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups: Outfield

We've officially entered into the last month of the fantasy baseball season. It's the home stretch, and it's time to bring home the bacon. This is no time to be hanging onto dead weight - underperforming players, those mired in slumps, or anyone else who can potentially cost you a championship. Below are some outfielders to consider... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep NL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 2% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Mitch Haniger demolished his way through the minors, posting a monstrous .325/.423/.588 line with 24 dingers, 10 steals and a whopping 86 RBI across two levels.

Teoscar Hernandez (OF, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep AL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 2% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Carlos Gomez has finally been exiled from Houston and Colby Rasmus just had surgery on his ear, leaving a trio of young players — Teoscar Hernandez, Jake Marisnick and Tony Kemp — to fill the final void left in the Astros’ outfield. Of... Read More

Alex Gordon (OF, KC) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, AL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 57% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: After an abysmal start to the season, a month lost due to injury and a mediocre July, Alex Gordon is back to his previous form. He's been seeing the ball much better in August to the tune of a .292/.370/.583 line with... Read More

5 years ago

Week 21 Waiver Wire Pickups: Outfield

We're approaching the end of August and you know what that means -- top prospect promotions for flailing teams! In the course of a week, the Yankees went from being the most floundering team in the league to the one with the brightest future. That's what strong play from the likes of Aaron Judge and...

Ichiro Suzuki (OF, MIA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, NL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 2% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: With Giancarlo Stanton out of the picture, the 42-year-old Ichiro Suzuki has become the Marlins’ starting right fielder for the rest of the season. It shouldn’t come as a shock that, despite his advanced age, Ichiro is still slashing an impressive... Read More

Kevin Kiermaier (OF, TB) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, AL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 13% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Kevin Kiermaier posted solid numbers before hitting the DL in late May, but was insufferable upon returning to action after the All-Star break. In 15 July games, Kiermaier went 6-for-42 with no home runs and just two RBI. He may be... Read More

5 years ago

Keon Broxton (OF, MIL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, NL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 15% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Keon Broxton has played in all but three games this month and has managed an impressive .357/.460/.500 in August with one homer, eight runs scored, five RBI and a whopping nine stolen bases.

BALLER MOVE: Add in Most Mixed Leagues OWNED IN: 54% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Aaron Judge has shot up more than 50% in ownership over the past week due to his minor league numbers and first few games at the big-league level.

Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups: Outfield

It's Week 20 and that means it's time for another deep dive into the outfield waiver wire. Let's face it -- those of us in particularly competitive and savvy leagues do not have the luxury of shopping for "hidden gems" at 45% ownership. That's why we're here to show you some real diamonds in the... Read More

5 years ago

Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups: Outfield

With just two months left in the season, the time for action has come. If you are a fringe competitor in your league, there's no time left for stashing, for investments in potential or hoping for things to get better. It's time to drop that slumping star and pick up some real performers on the... Read More

Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups: Outfield

Max Kepler smacked three home runs for the Minnesota Twins on Monday. Today, he remains owned in just 36% of leagues. In fact, he leads the league with 11 HR since July 1. The German sensation should be added in all leagues. But Kepler's fate remained relatively unchanged after the flurry of activity over the... Read More

Tommy Pham (OF, STL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in NL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 2% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Tommy Pham received his first significant call up back in July of 2015 and immediately asserted himself as an important part of the Cardinals outfield. He boasted a .268/.347/.477 line in 52 games with five home runs, 18 RBI and 28 runs scored, making... Read More

Steve Pearce (1B/2B/OF, TB) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, AL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 31% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Steve Pearce returned from a month-long stint on the DL last week,  and the performance has been spotty since his return. He's gone 6-for-24 with a dinger and four RBI. But Pearce has as much potential as anybody in a utility role.... Read More

David Dahl (OF, COL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, NL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 32% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: In a surprising turn of events that shocked fans and analysts alike, top prospect David Dahl has been called up to the big leagues by the Colorado Rockies.

Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups: Outfield

This week, let's focus on potential. It's hard to find guys languishing on the waiver wire in the midst of a productive season. No, all those guys are long gone. But there are plenty of guys with the potential to do big things. The key is to sniff out the guys who are primed to do... Read More

Randal Grichuk (OF, STL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, NL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 46% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: In 62 games this year, Randal Grichuk hovered barely over the Mendoza line before being sent down to Triple-A on June 17. As a result, he was unequivocally dropped in most leagues. The hard-hitting outfielder was one of the more valuable... Read More

Tyler Naquin (OF, CLE) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, AL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 22% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Tyler Naquin is quietly having a tremendous season for the surging Tribe, evidenced by a .324/.387/.636 slash line in 63 games. The performance could have been overlooked when the sample size was small, but with 196 Major League plate appearances under his... Read More

Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups: Outfield

In a shocking fantasy baseball development, there are still no 28 year-old sluggers in the prime of their career dwelling on the waiver wire. No, the waiver wire is a collection of toddlers and senior citizens; some poised to make their mark on professional baseball and some grasping on to the successes of years' past.... Read More

Outfield Waiver Wire Pickups: All-Star Break Edition

At long last we've reached the half way point of the 2016 season. The deepest position in baseball, at least on the offensive side, has seen a slew of hitters filter across the semipermeable membrane of the waiver wire. The All-Star break is infamous for being a natural turning point for many hitters over the... Read More

Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups: Outfield

To be victorious in fantasy baseball, you need players who produce numbers. The players who produce numbers on their own are generally not going to be found on the waiver wire. However, there are always some guys who know how to get on base dwelling around the wire. Getting on base, in itself, is not... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, AL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 33% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: The human Swiss Army knife that is Brock Holt is set to return from the DL as early as this weekend to start plugging up holes for the Boston Red Sox. The beauty of Holt is that he does the exact same... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, NL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 47% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Ben Revere has been one of the most heavily dropped players in fantasy over the past month— and for good reason. After spending all of April on the DL, Revere has been the most disappointing part of the Nationals loaded lineup.... Read More

Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups: Outfield

This week's list is composed of one riser, one faller, one returning from the DL and one just making his big league debut. It's a fine cast of characters who have been marginalized to the fringe of fantasy relevance. Most fantasy owners take note of the risers; that is, they check the waiver wire for... Read More

Alex Gordon (OF, KC) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues, AL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 41% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Clearly the news has not yet spread that Alex Gordon is less than a week away from returning to action for the Royals.
