Waiver Wire is our weekly look at players available in many leagues that could have an immediate impact on your fantasy roster, or simply just players to keep on your radar. We’ll be here all season to let you know which players to watch, who to ignore, and most importantly, who to pick up. If you have any waiver wire questions, feel free to post them in our Fantasy Baseball Forum.

Rubby De La Rosa
Here we go, starting off with Dustin boy again. True Rubby has had some ok outings but his last one was a gem going 7 innings and only giving up one run. With all that said this guy might actually be more suited for the bullpen. He also starts off great before cooling off after the fifth inning or so. Either way he has a great arm and is worth a look if you need pitching help. (about 5% owned)
Baker is what you would call a streaky pitcher. It seems like for his fantasy career he has always been added and dropped based on if he is hot or not. Well, he is currently hot so now is the time to ride him out. Baker has won four out of his last five and has improved his strikeout per nine totals in the stretch as well. (about 60% owned)
Ryan Madson better get healthy soon because he might not have a job upon his return. Madson went to the DL and Bastardo got the ball in the ninth for the Phils. Not only is he one for one in saves he has posted a sub one ERA on the season as well. There is a chance that Madson does not get his job back. If you are looking for saves run don’t walk to grab Bastardo. (about 30% owned)
Beachy was all the hype at the start of the season then he went to the DL. He was dropped in numerous leagues but now he is back and should be grabbed even if you do not necessary need pitching help because he is pitching great since returning. In two outings he has two wins and 20 Ks in only 12 innings. Not bad at all.(about 60% owned)
Here is a rookie that has proven he can play in the bigs. Since being called up Weeks has posted a .303 batting average, with 6 bags, 6 rbis, and 12 runs. The A’s love this kid and if you need help at second so should you.(about 30% owned)
We don’t think Bay is going to set the world on fire but he has basically doubled his power stats in his last 50 at bats. He is started to play a little better and he does have upside. Sure the average will not be there but remember he is only two seasons removed from a 36 homerun year.(about 50% owned)
This is all the Phils need another good starting pitcher. In three outings in June Worley has only given up two earned runs. We see him sticking in the rotation so if you need help go get him.(about 10% owned)
Luebke is a set-up guy turned starting pitcher and has done well thus far. On the season he is posting over a K per inning with a sub 3 ERA. One other note is he plays in a pitcher friendly park so at least he is a good match-up at home pitcher for those daily set-up leagues.

Brent’s boy Tabata hit the DL and he finally gave up hope in our expert league and so should you if you own him. With that said his replacement is a young one with a ton of upside, Alex Presley. In his first game he did knock one out of the park. In deeper leagues he is certainly worth a look. (about 10% owned)
If you need help at second base and you need a little speed boost Getz is your guy. Over the last two weeks he has swiped six bags and appears to have the green light to go anytime.(about 10% owned)
