Weekly Waiver Wire Report

Note: My waiver wire report digs a little deeper and is slanted toward high-stakes leagues (15 teams)


Mike Zunino, TB

Heading into the fourth week of the baseball season, there is a minefield of emptiness in the free-agent pool in 12 and 15 team leagues. The only player that provided help over the last week was Mike Zunino (3-for-11 with one home run and four RBI). His profile is well known in the fantasy market (high-strikeout power hitter with plenty of batting average risk). Zunino is hitting only .184 with nine runs, three home runs, and eight RBI over 38 at-bats on the year. He is only a week-to-week filler until a better-looking option comes along. Over the last two weeks, Tampa started him in back-to-back games only once.

Daulton Varsho, ARI

Finding minor league player news with no games being played might be more challenging than hitting the lottery. I remain steadfast in my commitment to Varsho as a ‘buy and hold’ at C2 in 15-team leagues. The Diamondbacks had a couple of injuries in centerfield, which should have cleared the way for a call-up. Last year Varsho was in the major for 62 days, so his service time shouldn’t hold him back. Stephen Vogt only has two hits over his previous 17 at-bats, and he hasn’t been an asset over the last two seasons (.168 over 101 at-bats with 11 runs, three home runs, and 13 RBI). At the very least, Varsho would be a player to keep a close eye on next week when the minor league players start playing games. Let’s get him to the big leagues where he can hit his way to more playing time.
