Lourdes Gurriel (2B - SS) Waiver Wire Pickup for Week 19

Brant Tedeschi Jul 29th 12:14 PM EDT.

Lourdes Gurriel has blown up the waiver wire thanks to stellar play in the month of July. For the season Gurriel is hitting 312 with 7 home runs, 20 runs batted in, 16 runs scored, and one stolen base for the Toronto Blue Jays in just 37 games.

The Blue Jays manager spoke about his two-homer game on July 27th. "He's obviously on a pretty nice roll," manager John Gibbons said. "He's doing a lot of good things. It was just a good night for our offense, and I thought Stro's stuff was really good tonight."

Ervin Santana To Return Wednesday

Lesley Tedeschi Jul 23rd 4:00 PM EDT.

The Minnesota Twins are excited to welcome back right-hander Ervin Santana on Wednesday.

This will be the first time Santana has been available to play this season, after undergoing surgery to remove calcium deposits from his right middle finger. Santana was originally hoping to return to the field in May, but suffered several setbacks during his recovery. His first issue was not being able to grip the ball, followed by having trouble throwing his slider, and if those weren't enough his velocity was lacking too. So needless to say his road back was rough and took longer than expected.

Is Andrew Luck safe to draft in 2018?

Brant Tedeschi Jul 20th 5:06 PM EDT.

The news just broke that Andrew Luck has been cleared to fully participate in training camp with the Indianapolis Colts. Colts fans are probably relieved that their guy is finally back and the quarterback drama is over.

But what does this mean for fantasy owners? Is Andrew Luck safe to draft as your quarterback? We are early into draft season for 2018, but as it stands today Luck has an ADP of 129. This puts Luck at roughly the 19th quarterback in most leagues.

Jesse Winker Strong Pick-up

Lesley Tedeschi Jul 14th 1:29 PM EDT.

The fantasy baseball season is well underway at this point, and there's still plenty of time left to turn your team around if you need to!

Outfielder Jesse Winker of the Cincinnati Reds' is proving to be a very hot pick-up and a must start. Winker had a slow start to his rookie season, but has picked things up at the plate recently. Over the course of his last 20 games he has gone 23-for-55 with four home runs and 20 RBIs. This is definitely a player to add to your team for the next half of the season!

DeMarco Murray Announces Retirement

Lesley Tedeschi Jul 13th 3:06 PM EDT.

After playing seven seasons in the NFL, running back DeMarco Murray has officially retired today.

Murray did not have the strongest season in 2017 with the Titans, and the team released him back in March. He was the lead back for both seasons he played there, but unfortunately this past season he just couldn't get things going. It was his lowest career year for yards rushing and carrying, and he didn't break 1,000 yards for the season.

Adalberto Mondesi offers deep league help

Brant Tedeschi Jul 11th 6:03 PM EDT.

Adalberto Mondesi went from unheard amongst pretty much anyone to a slightly wider range including some fantasy baseball team owners. Mondesi had a breakout game last night and is worth taking a look at.

Last night Mondesi had two hits, one home run, one run scored, one stolen base, and 4 runs batted in against the Minnesota Twins. A great statline for even MIke Trout.

Andrew Suarez's fantasy value

Brant Tedeschi Jul 9th 5:21 PM EDT.

San Francisco Giants rookie Andrew Suarez has quietly put together a solid case for himself as a top waiver claim.

The past 5 starts for Suarez have been great and brought his ERA down from 5.06 to just under 4 at 3.92. Meanwhile his WHIP has been fairly consistent during this stretch hovering around the 1.25 to 1.28 range.

Deep League Pitcher Help, Under 15% OWN

Brant Tedeschi Jul 2nd 5:36 PM EDT.

Today we are going to talk about Max Fried, a pitcher on the Atlanta Braves who has been very impressive during his 5 appearances so far this season. He is currently slated to pitch on Thursday, but his future in the rotation on the Braves is completely unknown.

So far this season Fried has pitched 17.2 innings with a 2.55 ERA and 1.3 WHIP to go along with an amazing 12.2 K/9. Fried started off as a reliever and has been extending his PC to a season high 101 as of June 30th against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Deep League OF Waiver Wire Help

Brant Tedeschi Jun 30th 2:35 PM EDT.

In deeper leagues, it's completely understandable that you may go through quite a few outfielders during the course of the season. The goal is to ride hot streaks and drop them when they get cold. If you happen to find an outfielder to hold onto all season-long, then consider yourself lucky.

Keon Broxton may be the guy you are looking to snag for a season-long replacement in the outfielder position. He was recently called up on Tuesday and in 3 games is batting .444 with 2 home runs, 4 RBI, and 4 runs scored to go along with 1 stolen base.
