The fantasy baseball season is heating up. The trade deadline is past and most MLB lineups are pretty much set going forward. Is your fantasy baseball team in good shape? Even if it is, you are going to want to keep reading. Having some solid players on the waiver wire can be the difference between winning your week and losing it — and every loss counts. Today’s Fantasy Alarm advice comes to you focused on waiver wire wonders that should be available in your league.
Win With Pitching
You don’t win a fantasy baseball season unless you can get consistent pitching from your rotation. If you need to pick up a player or two for a spot start then we might have the people for you.
Jose Urena, SP – Miami Marlins
Jose Urena is the most inspiring player in the Marlin rotation right now though that doesn’t count for much. He’s an electric 25 year old right hander who can throw some serious heat. Urena’s fastball clocks in at 96 MPh and he has a three pitch arsenal. Urena is slowly getting more comfortable in the Miami rotation and is a solid add on for a late season push.
Luis Perdomo, SP – San Diego Padres
You aren’t going to rack up many wins with Perdomo thanks to the lackluster San Diego offense, but he’ll definitely eat up some innings. Perdomo is another young arm on a team that is in the midst of a full scale rebuild. Perdomo will keep getting trotted out for his 6 IP of work with the chance for a win and a quality start.
Eddie Butler, SP – Chicago Cubs
The Cubs aren’t playing as well as a year ago and that’s due in large part to pitching. Chicago needs a back end starter and Eddie Butler will probably be that guy. Butler doesn’t blow anyone out of the water but he’s a good source of wins.
