Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Watch: Dylan Moore stays hot, Albert Suarez is back

 

 

Welcome to Waiver Wire Watch, where we review the top fantasy baseball pickups and drops for each week of the MLB season.

The premise is pretty straightforward. I’ll try to give you some recommended adds each week based on recent production or role changes. When I list a player, I’ll try to list the category where I think he’ll be helpful or the quick reason he’s listed. My hope is that it will help you to determine if the player is a fit for what your team needs or not.

For a player to qualify to be on this list, he needs to be UNDER 50% rostered in Yahoo formats. I understand you may say, “These players aren’t available in my league,” and I can’t help you there. These players are available in over 50% of leagues and some in 98% of leagues, so they’re available in many places and that can hopefully satisfy readers in all league types.

We’ll start by just looking at the teams with the best overall schedule in the next week. It’s just a part of the equation but it’s good to know which hitters will face an easier road.

 

 

Ortiz had solid exit velocity numbers in the minor leagues last year but couldn’t break through with the Orioles; yet, it was intriguing when he got dealt to the Brewers. Then it took him a while to break into the lineup, but now it appears that he’s emerging as the primary third baseman for the Brewers and is producing, hitting 18-for-59 (.305) in May with four home runs, nine runs, and 10 RBI in his last 18 games. Ortiz is unlikely to be a huge power hitter, but he does hit the ball hard and is now in a much better hitter’s park, so he will leave the yard. He also stole 11 bases last year, so he will likely swipe a base or two as well as the year goes on. I think you could get a little bit of production in all five categories from Ortiz and that makes him a solid add in most formats
