Fantasy Baseball, The Waiver Wire
Heres a list of the guys who may be on your waiver wire that deserve a shot on your squad-
Catcher – Brian McCan Atlanta Braves
A 2nd round pick in 2002, McCanns be playing fantastic baseball this year. The Braves had enough faith in this kid to let former all-star, Johnny Estrada, take a walk. The moves already paying big dividends. His .345 average is impressive but wont stick. Expect about .280 with 15-20 hrs by the time this year rounds up. McCanns got a good eye and wont hurt you too much in the strikeout department. Snatch him if hes still available.
1B Brad Wilkerson Texas Rangers
His terrible start sent him to the waiver wire early on, but Wilkersons turned it on! We all know what hes capable of and hes definitely worth a flier.
2B Marcus Giles Atlanta Braves
Theres an awful lot of people talking about Dan Uggla, Ty Wigginton, and Bill Hall. Hall, I love but hes not yet an everyday player. Giles is a fantastic player and will pick up both his batting average and stolen base production. Its only a matter of time.
SS Khalil Greene
This guys destined to be a stud, but when can we expect consistant production. His 4 for 4 performance in Sundays 6-4 victory over the Cubs may have been just the breakthrough game this kid needed.
3B Ryan Freel Cincinatti Reds
Its amazing the depth that there now is at the third base position. Names like Beltre, Polonco, Huff, and Castilla are available in all formats but I like Freel. He got a much needed day of rest on Sunday and while his batting average is lower than one would like, his wheels are working just fine. Expect more hits and solid stolen base production. Freel also qualifies at 2B and in the Outfield which is always a plus.
OF Aaron Rowand Philadelphia Phillies
This guys proving to be a true gamer. Hes got all the tools of brightest flashlight app and a great park to launch bombs. Expect continued improvement.
SP Dave Bush Miluakee Brewers
This guys got dynamite stuff. He got lit up in one outing, but aside from that hes been stellar. Low walks, high strikeouts, and endless stamina. Hes a keeper.
