With fantasy baseball there can be no rhyme or reason why some players succeed and others fall short. Thankfully the season is long and rigorous and there are plenty of opportunities to fill out your MLB lineups with someone decent. Today we are signaling the Fantasy Alarm for a few key waiver wire additions as the season winds down to a close. These players could be the difference in your playoff run.
Slugger Watch List
Every team could use with another slugger in their line up. Here are a pair of big hitters to add to your roster for the home stretch.
Rhys Hoskins, 1B – Philadelphia Phillies.
Rhys Hoskins is one of the most exciting young prospects on the Philadelphia roster and he is going to get plenty of run as the season progresses. Hoskins has elite power at the plate and he can actually get on base at a decent rate, otherwise. He’s more than a two outcome player and should be snatched up immediately.
Kennys Vargas, 1B – Minnesota Twins
Minnesota is fighting for a spot in the AL Central and they’ll need some power from the middle of the order to secure it. Kennys Vargas has a ton of power at the plate but he does strike out a fair clip.
Pitcher Watch List
Jose Urena, SP – Miami Marlins
Miami doesn’t have many pitching prospects but Urena is a good one. Urena has three pitches in his arsenal and an elite fastball. He’ll rack up Ks as the season comes to a close.
Luis Perdomo, SP – San Diego Padres
Luis Perdomo gives San Diego some hope on the rubber. He’s a solid innings eater with a lot to like toward the back end of the season. Perdomo won’t wow you but he’s consistent enough to roster.
