Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Targets: Andrew Heaney, Jordan Wicks, Jose Caballero

Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Targets: Andrew Heaney, Jordan Wicks, Jose Caballero

Well, since we last chatted a little-known and lightly rostered pitcher threw a no-hitter, Bryce Harper broke out of a slump with a three-homer night and Shohei Ohtani raised the volume at Dodger Stadium to airplane-takeoff levels with his first home run in blue. Ho-hum, just another week in the MLB season.

Let’s see what this week has ahead of us. Here are some Deep Sleepers who are rostered in 20% or less of leagues. Salud!

Fantasy Baseball Deep Sleepers & Waiver Wire Pickups: Week 3

Andrew Heaney (SP – TEX): 13%

The lefty gave up three runs (one earned) in his 2024 debut, but there were some encouraging signs for the rest of the season. He did not walk a batter and struck out seven Tampa Bay hitters. With a fastball in the low 90s, Heaney could be considered a crafty lefty. But on the reigning world champions, Heaney could get wins just going five or six innings on the regular. He gets the Astros at home on April 8.

Jordan Wicks (SP – CHI): 6%

Could Wicks actually be a streaming option against the otherworldly Dodger lineup on April 6? Well, temperatures could be in the high 40s that day and that tends to cool off even the hottest bats, especially if the wind is blowing in at Wrigley Field. So for fantasy managers looking for a one-start pitcher who could stick around — likely as long as Justin Steele is on the shelf — Wicks could be the guy. He did strike out six in four innings in an uneven 2024 debut against Texas.

Jose Caballero (SS – TB): 2%

This “gentleman” – the English translation of “caballero” – is off and running in the first week of the 2024 season with a .316 average. He’s hitting mostly in the bottom third of the lineup but still has three steals in this limited sample size. Caballero stole 26 bases last year, and figures to be in the starting lineup for the Rays for the immediate future.
