In our effort to keep you locked in a top your league we take our weekly look at some of the players you should be targeting off the waiver wire. One piece of advice we always give to owners is to not fall in love with players. Sure every team has their untouchables like Braun, Kemp and the like but you also have guys like Carlos Ruiz, Rickie Weeks, and Torii Hunter. The point being ALWAYS look to improve your roster at all times. Don't keep a guy in your lineup like Weeks who is doing absolutely nothing this year just because you drafted him fairly early.
Below is a list of some guys you should be targeting currently who are owned in less than 80% of leagues.
Ty Wigginton - The burly multi position eligible veteran is batting in the .290 range with a bit of pop and eligibility at 1st, 3rd, and Outfield.
Carlos Ruiz - Sure we mentioned him above as a guy to not be married to but now is a time to be dating him at least. Chooch is producing more than any catcher in the league currently and should be owned in all formats.
|Add me guys......|
Chris Johnson - The Astro third baseman is currently hitting over 300 and has 18 RBIs. Not too shabby for a guy owned in only 25% of ESPN leagues.
Jerome Williams - This veteran has been underwhelming for much of his career but he currently is 3-1 with a sub 3.5 ERA. He is someone to grab if the right match up presents itself.
Wei-Yin Chin - For a guy owned in less than 4% of ESPN leagues he owns a 2.76 ERA in 5 starts. While you probably don't want to role with him in his next start against the Rangers he is someone to grab in decent matchups.
Giancarlo Stanton owners are finally getting what they have been waiting for. A Stanton POWER SURGE. Today Stanton hit his 6th bomb in 9 games with this broken bat laser. (from our friends at MLB.com)
