FANTASY BASEBALL WAIVER WIRE:
IF YOU SEEK CINGRANI (PART II)
BEAST DOME NATION.
I know you all missed me this past week. On my current life mission to qualify for a Major Championship, last week to do so on FanDuel. Also making an extra point to not be slow on adding Cameron Maybin, update below.
Fantasy Football articles will be coming out next week as well as the release of the Early BEAST VIP Package.
CAMERON MAYBIN – OF – DET
If you caught my Cameron Maybin article last week, he is being called up this coming week. Cameron Maybin is MUST-OWN in all Leagues the second he is activated. Anthony Gose is doing nothing and now being benched, the spot is wide open for Maybin to take over and be a BEAST. He will bat 9th which is an extended #1 in AL. He will score Runs and Steal Bases like Odubel Herrera.
If you have a start OF option, but you need help with pitching. Watch Maybin start to get hot, once he does you can move your star OF option for a stud Pitcher.
IF YOU SEEK CINGRANI (Part II)
No that baseball card is not mine. When I tried to find an image for him I came across lots and lots of Rookie Cards. Tony Cingrani was supposed to be an ace, now that Rookie Card is worth less than a quarter you find on the street.
TONY CINGRANI – RP – CIN
21% Owned Leagues. 2 Saves. 2 Blown Saves. 3.31 ERA
Right before the 2015 season started, Cingrani admitted his elbow was not the same after injury, and he cannot be a starting pitcher anymore. Tony moved to the bullpen for the Reds where he was really nothing special, more of an amazing Lefty Specialist out of the pen. With Aroldis Champman gone, Cingrani is the next man up for the Reds Closer position, with Ross Ohlendorf splitting the job. Ross is nothing special and Cingrani should still be the closer eventually, despite giving up a game tying HR to the Pirates on Friday Night. If you are desperate for RP help scrambling for closers. Cingrani is a guy who can easily rack up 25+ Saves before the season is over.
TYLER GLASNOW – SP – PIT
Owned 63% Leagues. Minors.
Every year in Fantasy Baseball there is a pitcher who starts in the minors and ends up with SP1 value. This year that pitcher is Tyler Glasnow. In most leagues he is gone, but there is still 37% of leagues where he needs to be owned in.
After throwing 7 more shutout INN with 11K’s. The stud is ready to be a BEAST. Jeff Locke and Jon Niese are both occupying a spot that can easily go to Glasnow. Do not be late to the party, add Glas – Now. 8 INN/1 ER/8 K games are in his future.
CHASE HEADLEY – NYY – 3B
Owned 10% Leagues. .196 Average. 2 HR. 7 RBI. 3 SB.
I have been holding onto Chase Headley in every league. Finally on Thursday Headley was able to hit his first Extra Base Hit of the season, a HR. On Friday Headley did it one more time, against Chris Sale. Let us not forget that Headley hit 30+ HR for the Padres back in the day, he used to steal 15+ Bases.
Yankee Stadium is a HR dream land, even Jimmy Rollins looked like he was 24 Years Old with his Sky Rocket HR to Right Field. Chase switch hits, he is an extended leadoff hitter in the #9 spot, and he runs. Chase Headley should be owned in all leagues. 20+ HR/10+ SB. You cannot get that type of production for the rest of the season at 3B.
SCOOTER GENNETT – 2B – MIL
Owned 22% Leagues .273 Average. 4 HR. 23 RBI. 0 SB
Scooter is nothing special so far in his young MLB career. Never hit more than 9 HR, never stole more than 6 Bases. So far at 26 years old, Gennett is on the midst of a Breakout year as he had 4 HR in less than weeks. Than an Oblique injury. Scooter is now healthy and he just returned on Friday night. Obliques injuries usually do not kill a players season, so Scooter should return to form sooner than later. While his hot start is notable, keep in mind he will be hitting around the #2 Spot every game moving forward. Easily a better player to own than Aaron Hill, Scooter is on his way to his first 15 HR season.
