Fantasy Alarm brings the hottest new advice and tips to keep your fantasy baseball team on the level. That doesn’t mean you should quit researching, however! Waiver wire wonders can be the difference between a league winner and a league loser, so let’s make sure we get you on the right side of history. Keep on reading for an in depth look at some of the hottest waiver wires available in your fantasy baseball league.
Jose Urena, SP – Miami Marlins
You can have the best MLB lineups in the world but without starting pitching you are going nowhere fast. Jose Urena has a full complement of pitches, the ability to fan batters, and the full confidence of his pitching staff. If Urena is available in your league then grab him and hold on for the long haul.
Jed Lowrie, 2B – Oakland Athletics
He isn’t an inspiring pick up, at least in terms of name value, but that doesn’t mean you should pass him by. Lowrie is having a quiet career year in the heart of the Oakland batting order. Pick him up for a boost in power and runs scored.
Rhys Hoskins, 1B – Philadelphia Phillies
If you slam almost 40 home runs in Double-A and keep up that power streak at Triple-A then you are getting a call up. Look for Philly to shake up their roster toward the end of the season. Hoskins could come right into the Major Leagues and start raking with his game changing power potential.
Jorge Soler, OF – Kansas City Royals
Soler has been abysmal in KC so far but every time he is sent down he ends up raking in the Minors. Soler has huge power and a real pedigree so if he gets it right toward the end of the season the profit can be yours.
