Anybody know if he will start out on waivers for Yahoo Leagues if he wasnt rostered before the callup?

My non-keeper Yahoo league is set to put new call ups on waivers but he's not on waivers. Once Yahoo lists a new player and he clears waivers, they don't return them to waivers at a later point even if they are down in the minors the whole season. And Wieters has been listed as a free agent since the draft. Someone dropped him in this league earlier this season and I picked him up without using a waiver.

In my non-keeper Yahoo league I was able to pick him up in the beginning of the season... Him and Tommy Hanson have been riding my pine the whole year.

Wow.

In my H2H keeper league I am 1-6 and selling my best players for the future. Yesterday morning I offered VMart and Liriano for Weiters/Loney. The deal was accepted and I thought I would have to ride a Miguel Olivo for a month so this news is ecstatic.

Was dropped about 5 days ago in my Yahoo league by the guy who drafted him - guess he got tired of waiting. I was 12th out of 12 in waiver priority as I used my priority about two weeks ago to snag Wainwright who had been dropped. Suffice it to say, I put in a claim but did not get Weiters. I could have really used him as I have the struggling Yadier Molina as my only catcher, but I'm quite happy to have Wainwright as a consolation prize - guy's been lighting it up.

Sounds like you need to find a tougher league if people are dropping players like Wainwright, or Wieters in late May, IMO.
