As the fantasy baseball season winds down, players are scurrying to find the best available options on the waiver wire for their mlb lineups. The last minute add could mean the difference between winning a league title or falling short. The following are players who could provide those crucial statistics needed to win a league down the stretch.
Everyone is probably already hot on the trail of Rhys Hoskins. Hoskins makes the national highlights nearly every night. The Philadelphia slugger has posted a record setting 16 dingers in just 32 games. That’s the best start by any player in MLB history. His instant offense could help in head to head or rotisserie leagues at first base.
Outfielder Ben Gamel is also sending shock waves through baseball nation since finding his place in the Seattle lineup. His replacement of Mitch Haniger hasn’t gone unnoticed.
Gamel has provided the Mariners with several multi-hit games during his recent stretch.
San Diego pitcher Luis Perdomo has sparkled of late. There aren’t many great options usually on the waiver wire in terms of starting pitchers. Perdomo can eat up innings and put solid numbers up to boost your fantasy team.
San Diego also has found a decent waiver add in Ryan Schimpf. He doesn’t bat for average. He might only get a hit in one of every five at bats. The reward, however, comes in his power. Schimpf can add home runs at the second base position where not many others can.
Pitcher Eddie Butler of the Chicago Cubs is also another intriguing waiver wire addition. Not many people own Butler so he should be available. He doesn’t get a ton of strikeouts but he plays for a team that should win way more than they lose at this point in the season.
