So Call Me Maybin (Waiver Wire)
BEAST DOME NATION.
We are now one month into the Fantasy Baseball season. At this point you can look at your team and point out your exact weakness. For some teams it is power, for others it is speed. While Speed is something that is cherished, it is also something that is hard to find.

FANTASY BASEBALL WAIVER WIRE
Keep in mind the players mentioned in last weeks article. They are all still very relevant.
CAMERON MAYBIN – OF – DET
Owned 19% Leagues.
Maybin has yet to play a game this season as he is currently rehabbing. Once Maybin and his shoulder feel ok, Cameron will be a fantasy BEAST out of the gates. The shoulder injury is a bit of a concern, but the fact he already has a HR during his rehab assignment shows he can still hit the ball just fine.
While Maybin is not really known for his power, you are getting him for the fact he can bat 9th everyday for the Tigers and have multiple games that look like this.
2-4/1 RBI/1 SB/2 Runs
Those type of games win Championships. Go get him if he is on your waiver wire now. Maybin should be back before Memorial Day Weekend, hopefully he is ready to go by next weekend.
AARON HILL – 2B/3B – MIL
Owned 4% Leagues. .244 average. 4 HR. 15 RBI. 2 SB
Fresh off a 3 HR/7 RBI game, which included a grand slam. Aaron Hill is likely going to be scooped up in just about every league. Aaron Hill has tremendous power for a 2B option and could easily end up with 12+ on the season. Scooter Gennett will be back sooner than later, but even so there is a vacant hole at 3B which has Aaron Hill written all over it to close out the season.
The Brewers are winning games this season, until they are no longer in contention, Aaron Hill will play just about everyday. I would still rather have Brandon Drury or Derek Dietrich.
BARTOLO COLON – SP – NYM
Owned 53% Leagues. 3W. 2.82 ERA. 33 K. 1.12 WHIP.
If you did not take my advice earlier in the season when I said to pick up Bartolo. Take it now, this is your last chance to get him before he reaches 85%. Colon has won 2 straight starts and Colon faces the weak NL East far too often. The Mets are going to pick up a lot of wins, which means Bartolo should see an easy 15 Wins as long as the 42 year old stays healthy.
NATHAN KARNS – SP – SEA
Owned 48% Leagues. 3W. 3.38 ERA. 38 K. 1.33 WHIP.
I was never a believer of Karns last season when he was with the Rays. Everytime I put my money against him, I always ended up giving my money to the Sports Books. Karns moving to Seattle out of the HR Country aka AL East, has been a blessing in disguise. Not only are the Mariners competitive in nearly every game, but Karns is facing offenses that are not doing much damage at all.
Nate Karns is locked and loaded in the Mariners rotation even with James Paxton in the minors, which means Nate Karns is a guy you can likely trust for a majority of the season. The AL West is not scary to pitch against, and Karns is definitely above average on the Muntradamus scale.
