Jose Urena and Jorge Soler Lead our Waiver Wire Fantasy Alarm

What makes a fantasy baseball champion? Is it your draft day decisions? The way you analyze each and every move by major league teams? Or is it how you keep track of your waiver wire add ons? The truth is somewhere in the middle, all of them all at once. However, today we are going to highlight the different players available on your waiver wire today that could make a huge impact on your MLB lineups in the future.

 

Starting Pitching

Luis Perdomo, SP – San Diego Padres

If you are going to the waiver wire then you need to dig deep in order to find some starting pitching. Solid starters are plucked up quickly but that doesn’t mean they are all gone. Due to being stuck in San Diego, Luis Perdomo is commonly overlooked. Perdomo offers K upside with the ability to rack up quality starts. He doesn’t have blow-by stuff but Perdomo can eat up innings for you with ease.

 

Jose Urena, SP – Miami Marlins

Miami doesn’t have much going on in terms of their starting pitching but Jose Urena could be a game changer down the stretch. Urena is a young hurler who can clock 96 MPH on the radar with his fastball. Urena will get more acclimated to the big leagues and as he does we expect his punch out numbers to rise.

 

Big League Hitting

Jorge Soler, OF – Kansas City

Soler’s start in Kansas City has been nothing to cheer about, at least at first. Soler just hasn’t gotten comfortable at the Major League level. Still, Soler rakes every time he is demoted to Triple-A so we expect him to get another opportunity before the season ends. Soler has huge power and Kauffman Stadium could treat him well if he finds his power stroke.
