It’s the final week of August and the last waiver period before Major League teams expand to 40 man rosters and many more options for your fantasy team down the stretch. If your league allows minor league pickups, now is the time to take a chance and grab young talent you believe will get called up. We’ll address those projections in this week’s edition of the Farm Report, but Waiver Flavor will remains business as usual with suggested pickups from current 25 man rosters.
First of all, Happy Memorial Day weekend to all! A special thanks to all those who have served and our serving our country. Memorial Day weekend is a great opportunity to get out and support your local team, be it at the major or minor league level. I am taking the family to what I hope to be a preview of the "Beltway Series" as the Baltimore Orioles visit Nationals Park here in Washington. I had hoped to catch elite prospect Kevin Gausman, but he isn't pitching until Tuesday. We have a nice group of options for you this week, from Gausman to top hitting prospect Jurickson Profar.
