FantasyPros Baseball Podcast: Waiver Wire Pickups w/ Michael Beller

Apr 15, 2019
Franmil Reyes

Franmil Reyes has the power and playing time to make a big difference

Welcome to another episode of the FantasyPros Baseball Podcast. The show is hosted by our own Bobby Sylvester (@bobbyfantasypros). He’ll be interviewing featured experts and team correspondents who will provide insight throughout the baseball season.

Despite a few weeks of baseball being played, there are still an overwhelming number of players that are available on the waiver wire worth owning. Michael Beller of Sports Illustrated joins us on the show to run through all the top options across various ownership points at the hitter (10:48) and pitcher (41:13) positions. If Jorge Polanco is still available, get him now (11:02). Don’t hesitate to pick up Franmil Reyes (21:25), Carlos Rodon (41:26) and Michael Pineda (48:13) are quality arms worth owning, and who is Nick Anderson (54:13)? We’re answering mailbag questions to close out the show like when is it too early to drop mid-round picks (56:12) and who are some buy-low candidates worth looking into (1:00:16)?
