Soon-to-be-Available Players to Watch For!

Postby Lime » Mon Apr 11, 2005 12:08 pm

Who are some of the players that are currently not available on Yahoo, but should be sometime soon that are worth picking up?

In my 20 team league I've been sure not to pick up any marginal players off waivers so I keep moving up on the waiver list. I was 16th to start the season and I've moved up to 4th. Who should I keep an eye out for?

Well I'll get us started. Felix Hernandez may be called up at somepoint this season, and might be worth a look in a deep league.

Anyone else?

Brandon McCarthy for the ChiSox. He's a great prospect but some may have already heard of him thanks to the Cafe and his good spring. Should get called up when an injury strikes or one of the SPs starts to suck (read: El Duque and Contreras).
Can't worry about tomorrow's pain tonight.

Thanks for that.

It was a while ago though, so do you have any updated scoops on hitters or pitchers tearing up AAA (or mega-tearing up AA)?

In my 20 team league I've moved up to 2nd on the waiver priorities list.

Andy Marte was the first to pop in my head when I saw this thread

BJ Upton... The devil rays aren't going anywhere...what differnce does it make if he makes errors at triple a or the majors. there's no reason they can't put lugo at 2b....

For pitching help, pick up Ezequiel Astacio for the Astros. He gets his first big league start Tuesday against Pittsburgh. Then, he is slated to face Atlanta a week from today. I've seen him pitch in the minors at Round Rock, and he is the real deal. Had a one-hitter with 12 or 13Ks late last year one night that we went to the ballpark. I don't see him getting sent back down anytime soon.

From Sporting News:

April 25, 2005 - 10:14 p.m.
The Astros will bring up Astacio (0-3, 4.63 ERA at Triple-A Round Rock) to start Wednesday in place of Brandon Duckworth (0-1, 12.60 ERA).
Fantasy Source spin: Astacio finally gets a chance to be the team's fifth starter, but we're not overly optimistic about his chances of keeping the role throughout the season.
