Winning your fantasy baseball championship is about so much more than being able to draft well. In fact, as soon as the draft is over you are better off forgetting about it. Today we are going to walk you through the waiver wire gems that may be sitting in your league. These players may not be household names, but they can definitely help win you your league. The kind of advice you need can always be found, especially if you want to win your league, when the Fantasy Alarm rings.
Luis Perdomo, SP. – San Diego Padres
Starting pitching wins you baseball games in real life. As it turns out, finding a solid starter on the waiver wire can win you games in fantasy baseball as well. Luis Perdomo has been working away in San Diego, trotting out quality start after quality start without getting any wins thanks to an anemic Padre offense. Perdomo is a 70% groundball out pitcher and he can grab you some solid innings in your NL or mixed league. His K numbers likely keep Perdomo under the radar, to your benefit.
Eddie Butler, SP. – Chicago Cubs
Any pitcher on the Cubs roster is liable to score a win when they take the mound as a starter — provided they can make it the 5 IP required. Butler is coming from Colorado where he was shelled whenever he pitched at home. Wrigley Field isn’t exactly forgiving but it is an improvement on Coors Field. Butler is an innings eater who recently dominated at Triple-A and he’ll get a chance to solidify himself in Chicago’s rotation.
