As we head into the last five weeks of the regular season, we fantasy baseball players are looking forward to working the waiver wire as big-league rosters expand this weekend. This week we’ll highlight some players who can help you in your season-long leagues and point out a couple who you should consider using in DFS lineups as well. We’ll even provide you with the name of a pitcher who’ll probably be promoted this weekend that you might be able to use as a starter in your season-long fantasy baseball league.

A few weeks ago we speculated that Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge was still feeling the lingering effects of his early-season oblique injury. Well, he seems to be feeling no pain right now. In his first 47 games since coming off the injured list back on June 21st, he posted a .244 batting average with seven home runs and a 413 slugging percentage. Over his last 11 games, he’s batting .383 with six home runs and a .872 slugging percentage. He’s posted a .358/.475/.704 triple-slash against left-handed pitching, a stat that DFS players should take note of.

Rangers’ rookie Nick Solak was probably picked up off of waiver wires in deeper leagues last weekend, but is still widely available in Yahoo and ESPN leagues. Solak is batting .375 in his first 10 big league games. Since he has a career .294/.383/.468 triple-slash, Solak’s early success isn’t all that surprising. With the Rangers considering benching the slumping Rougned Odor who is currently in a 0-for-28 slump, Solak should continue to get regular ABs. His stats are likely to level off, but ride him while he’s hot.

Jake Cave has been getting regular ABs in the Twins’ outfield in place of Byron Buxton and he’s been making the most of his playing time. He’s batting .426 with five home runs in his last 15 games. He’s had two, two home run games in the past week.

A’s shortstop Marcus Semien has been swinging a hot bat as well. He’s batting .346 over his last 12 games and has slugged five home runs and driven in 15 runs during that time frame.

Over on the pitching side of things, we’ve got some veteran starters who’ve been on a roll lately. It took a while for Dallas Keuchel to find a team willing to give him a contract this season, but he was lucky enough to latch onto a playoff contender like the Braves. Keuchel has helped the Braves climb their way to the top of the NL East. He’s pitched well of late, posting a 0.47 ERA and striking out 21 batters in 19 IP across his last three starts. DFS players should consider using him in his home starts. He has a 2.29 home ERA, and a bloated 5.26 road ERA.

Giants’ starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija is on a hot streak. Over his last six starts, he’s pitching to a 1.53 ERA, with opposing hitters posting a .150 BAA him.

Angels’ starter Andrew Heaney has been getting it done over his last six starts as well. He’s posted a 2.38 ERA and has struck out 44 batters in his last 34 IP. 

Reds’ starter Anthony DeSclafani has a 1.00 ERA and a .190 BAA in his last three starts. Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park is known as a hitter’s park, but Desclafani’s home ERA (3.55) is actually almost a run better than his road ERA (4.48).

As we alluded to earlier, September 1st marks the date that teams can expand their big league rosters and promote any player already on their 40-man roster. There are too many prospects who could potentially get promoted to list here, but the Yankees are expected to promote outfielder Clint Frazier , who batted .283/.330/.513 with 11 homers and 34 RBIs in 53 games for the Bronx Bombers this season. He’s batting just .243 in 57 Triple-A games and was thought to have been sent down to the minor leagues in order to work on his fielding, and maybe to also work on adjusting his attitude. His fantasy value will obviously depend on how many ABs he can squeeze in for the remainder of the season. With Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton still a while away from coming off the IL, if Frazier gets off to a hot start he could earn some semi-regular playing time, but he’ll be competing with Mike Tauchman , Cameron Maybin and the veteran Brett Gardner for ABs. 

Orioles’ first baseman Ryan Mountcastle has nothing left to prove in the minor leagues. He’s batted .309 with 25 home runs in 123 Triple-A games and was named the International League MVP. If the Orioles aren’t concerned about service time considerations we can see Mountcastle in Baltimore on September 1st. 

Dodgers’ second baseman Max Muncy ’s recent hand injury may open the door for a Gavin Lux promotion. Lux, widely regarded as the Dodgers top prospect, can play both shortstop and second base and has a .348 batting average with 26 home runs and 10 SB in 451 minor league ABs this season. 

Some speculate that the Nationals might call up Carter Kieboom , again. With second baseman Brian Dozier treading water with a batting average stuck in the .230’s, Kieboom might provide the Nats with a spark that can help ignite their playoff run. 

While most of the pitchers getting a September call up will work out of the bullpen, the Blue Jays may plug T.J. Zeuch into their starting rotation. He’s a former first-round pick who has an above-average fastball and slider, and he’s coming off two scoreless starts, one of which was a no-hitter. Zeuch could be a nice, cheap waiver wire add this weekend.
