It's that time of the week again! Time to save your team by adding the latest and greatest from the waiver wire! Keep in mind, every ten games of the MLB season is equivalent to just one game in a NFL season. As we prepare to head into May, we are already seeing solid veterans that were dropped early on, finally finding their way. When it comes to veterans, especially hitters, they aren't going to hit .200 or .400 and you need to play the peaks and valleys. If you are trading, trade 'em while their hot and get 'em while their not!
The amount of injuries across MLB has been nothing short of ridiculous so far this year. It seems as though players are getting soft and missing gobs of time due to blisters and the flu. This is creating some very interesting situations in fantasy baseball leagues. Check your league standings and I will all but guarantee you that the healthiest team(s) are on top. With this knowledge it’s now important to not only look for the best skills when searching for waiver wire pickups but also for durability. Getting the most games played out of your club is so important yet underrated in fantasy baseball. So, with this in mind let’s look at some players who are out on the waiver wire who can help you rack up numbers game in and game out.
