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.

The host of our Leading Off Podcast, Dan Harris, jumps on with us to assist in breaking down all the major recent prospect call-ups (3:29) and share his top waiver pickups of the week. Fantasy owners would be wise to scoop up Scooter Gennett as soon as they can (12:51). Is it time to take Jordan Lyles (32:44) seriously? Who has the best long-term outlook between Ross Stripling, Lucas Giolito (36:37), and Brad Peacock (37:31)? Lastly, we finish the show by tackling your listener mailbag questions (46:42).
