PLAYERS I SUGGESTED ON WAIVER WIRE THIS WEEK
Franklin Gutierrez continues his fine start with his 3rd HR of the season. Do not let him sit on the Waiver Wire.
Brandon League has a shaky 9th INN but does hold onto the 3 run lead. Kenley Jansen has yet to give up a run, so the leash on League is not as long as a lot of owners want it to be.
Brandon Moss knocks in 5 RBIs on Wednesday. You can celebrate if you somehow used him in a Daily Fantasy League, that is all he is good for is the random occasional good play.
Kelvin Herrera locks down his 2nd save, the first one being only 1/3 of an INN. Kelvin did strikeout all three Twins hitters, which makes you think he will get another opportunity. If you have Holland remain patient before dropping him, if you have a bad reliever. Drop that reliever for Herrera.
Joel Hanrahan gives up 5 ER in 2/3 of an INN. Blows the save. Andrew Bailey has been perfect and after a rough Spring Training and showing some bad signs in his last appearance Joel’s leash is very short at the moment, he must convert his next game. Andrew Bailey is a good speculative add if you are looking for a closer.
Evan Gattis knocks out another HR. Evan is hot, if you need a catcher ride him out instead of trading for one. John Buck and Gattis are turning out to be the two biggest sleepers at the position, neither may survive the long-run.
Lucas Duda hits 2 HRs in the same game, Mets still lose. Duda is a nice addition off of Waiver Wires while he is this hot. 20 HRs would be the usual expectation from him, at this rate he could go over 25.
Barry Zito is one of the MLB leaders in ERA after throwing his second shutout this season. Zito now owns a nice 14/0 ER/7 Ks. He had a nice a Spring and is carrying his success into the season with grace.
A.J. Pollock hits 2 HRs/2B/SB and is the Fantasy Player of the Day. If he has success against Clayton Kershaw on Friday, people may want to jump the gun on his potential. It is not often a rookie pulls off this type of game so soon.
Fernando Rodney & Rafael Soriano both have good shutout INNs to make their owners breathe easy. Both will be fine and keep their jobs the entire season most likely.
Jake Westbrook who always starts the season out hot, throws a CG shutout to secure his 0.00 ERA to put him amongst the league leaders. This stat is due to change by the end of next month.
J.P. Arencibia plays hero with a huge bases loaded double that scores all 3 runners in the 7th INN for the win. J.P. has been the man all season and looks to be an automatic top 10 Catcher who comes closer to Top 5 everyday. Not a bad idea to sell ridiculously high and see what you get in return.
