Joe Musgrove's performance yesterday is tough to ignore.

Joe allowed 5 hits with 7 strikeouts over 7 innings against the Cardinals. He has been injured all season due to a strained right shoulder and he finally made his debut with a splash.

<![CDATA[Nimmo could be the outfielder on waivers to snag]]>Brandon Nimmo has quietly been on a roll for the New York Mets. For the season he is batting .278 with 3 home runs, 6 rbi, and 18 runs scored to go along with 3 stolen bases.

Nimmo will not be putting up many RBI for fantasy owners because he is a leadoff hitter, but he has been getting on base quite a bit with an OBP of .430.

<![CDATA[Profar's value as a popular waiver claim]]>Jurickson Profar is a popular waiver claim over the past few days and let's delve into a little bit about what you should expect from him on your roster.

As of today, Profar is hitting .237 with 3 home runs, 26 RBI, and 19 Runs to go along with 3 stolen bases. His own percentage today is hovering at around 40%, so he is still available in quite a few leagues out there.

<![CDATA[Tyler O'Neill Worth a Spot?]]>The St. Louis Cardinals have something brewing right now that they can't ignore, outfielder Tyler O'Neill. O'Neill hasn't made much of an impact until recently, hitting homers three games in a row.

O'Neill spent time down in the minors and managed to get 13 homers over the course of 29 games. After getting called back up last week he has managed to impress his team and the crowd. Now the question is can he keep up with the major league expectations?

<![CDATA[Meadows could provide short-term fantasy value]]>Austin Meadows has been called up to the big leagues. He was drafted 9th in the 2013th draft and his path to the big leagues haven't exactly been smooth due to injuries.

Those of you who are looking to take a chance on Meadows need to know that his playing time may not be there in the long-term. However, he is still considered to be a top prospect with the Pirates.

<![CDATA[Why is Franmil Reyes such a popular waiver addition?]]>The casual fan probably has never heard of Franmil Reyes, but fantasy die-hards who have been paying attention to Triple-A know all about him.

Reyes got the call up simply because the Padres simply can't ignore the production he has provided in Triple-A. He had 14 home runs, and eight of those home runs came in just five games. With an injury riddled lineup and poor run production, why not take a chance and see what he's got?

<![CDATA[Player Analysis of Jankowski and his limited fantasy value]]>Travis Jankowski of the San Diego Padres is quietly been putting up nice numbers since being recalled from Triple-A El Paso in late April.

How good? Try batting .349 with 1 home run, 8 runs scored, 3 stolen bases, and just one RBI. His average is solid and has potential to help you in stolen bases and runs categories. He seems like the perfect guy for deep league help based on these numbers in just 13 games.

<![CDATA[Matt Wisler Waiver Wire Worthy?]]>Atlanta Braves pitcher Matt Wisler is off to a nice start this season. He earned his second shot at a start on Wednesday against the Cincinnati Reds, which happens to be his home turf. Wisler wasn't guaranteed the start but manager Brain Snitker said he deserves the opportunity.

Last season was very up and down for Wisler, and he has no problem admitting that. He bounced back and forth between Triple-A and the Majors and had a difficult time processing that. He only had one start last seaon, so he's doubled that already in 2018!

<![CDATA[David Dahl Looks Promising ]]>THe Colorado Rockies called outfielder David Dahl up for their game on Sunday. Dahl has been in Triple-A for the start of the 2018 season and is looking to capitalize on his very recent move to the Majors.

Dahl went for a 17 game hitting streak during the 2016 season and the sky seemed the limit for his success moving into 2017. Unfortunately Dahl dealt with a rib injury that kept him completely off the main roster last season and the start of 2018. During preseason Dahl led the Rockies with 18 RBIs and five homers, but that still wasn't enough to move out of Triple-A.

<![CDATA[Sell high on Corbin]]>Patrick Corbin is on fire to start the 2018 season. He is now 4-0 with a 1.89 ERA, 13 K/9 and an insane 0.66 WHIP.

The closest pitcher he can be compared to is Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals or Sean Manaea of the Oakland Athletics.

<![CDATA[Joey Lucchesi will come back down to earth]]>Joey Lucchesi has been a breakout star this season for the San Diego Padres. So far this season Lucchesi has a 1.66 ERA, .97 WHIP and a 10.4 K/9. Those are some impressive numbers considering he has already pitched in four games.

However, the matchups he has played in so far have only been so-so offensive clubs. The San Francisco Giants, Colorado Rockies, and Milwaukee Brewers are around the middle of the league in terms of offense according to our offensive rankings.

<![CDATA[Guerra, a rising waiver wire pickup]]>Junior Guerra has been slowly rising on the waiver wire after two solid outings so far this season. Junior is sporting a .82 ERA and .91 WHIP and fantasy owners are starting to believe.

The downside to Guerra's pitching this season is the fact he has not been able to get a full six-inning effort. Both games he pitched, he was unable to notch a quality start, but was able to pickup a win against the Tampa Bay Rays.

<![CDATA[Giancarlo Stanton on the Upswing ]]>Since becoming a New York Yankee this year, Giancarlo Stanton has gotten off to a rough start. Stanton has been welcomed by the fans with boos in the last few weeks, as he went 9-50 at bats after game 2.

Stanton appeared to shake off some dust in the game Friday night against the Toronto Blue Jays, hitting a two-run homer during the third. The outfielder was greeted with cheers at the start of the fourth which was more than welcomed.

<![CDATA[Tucker Leads NL in RBI]]>Preston Tucker is currently leading the NL in RBI. That's right, a guy you probably never heard of is currently in the league in the NL in RBI thanks in part to last night's big 5 RBI game against the New York Mets.

His season statline is currently sitting at .288 AVG, 3 HR, 18 RBI, and 8 RUNS. He is currently ranked 5th out of all major league left fielders and is projected by experts to end the season around 89th.

<![CDATA[Junis is a top Waiver Add]]>Jake Junis, the Kansas City Royals starting pitcher is soaring on the waiver wire today and is currently sitting in the top position for the day. For the season, he has a 1.93 ERA, 16/4 K/BB, 7.7 K/9, and a .80 WHIP.

He started the season with two solid starts, pitching 7 innings and giving up no runs while throwing 90 pitches or less. Then his outing on April 14th happened in which he only managed 4.2 innings and gave up 4 earned runs while striking out a season-high 7 batters.
