Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire: Week Six

John breaks down all the top waiver wire and FAAB additions for this week in Fantasy Baseball!

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - MAY 04: Andy Pages #84 of the Los Angeles Dodgers hits a solo home run, to take a 4-1 lead over the Atlanta Braves, during the fourth inning at Dodger Stadium on May 04, 2024 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)

OF Andy Pages, Los Angeles Dodgers (65%)

Has Pages walked yet this season? No. Does it matter when he’s on a 10-game hitting streak? Also, no. If he is somehow unowned, he’s definitely worth scooping up, but he will likely go for a sizable sum in those leagues. He won’t stay this hot all season, but he was a very highly regarded prospect who showed good plate discipline in the minors and is hitting every day for the best batting lineup in baseball.

SP Christian Scott, New York Mets (62%)

Scott had 36 Ks in 25.1 innings and a .71 WHIP at AAA prior to his callup. Yesterday, in his major league debut, he struck out six hitters and let up just one walk and one run over 6.2 innings. He’s a promising arm who is owned in most leagues but worth the add if available.

OF Joey Loperfido, Houston Astros (58%)

Loperfido has become another popular player recently after hitting an insane 13 home runs over 101 AAA at bats prior to his recent callup. He has four hits spread out over four games so far and could certainly provide a power boost to teams needing homers. However, like Pages and Scott, Loperfido will be one of the costlier names this week in any leagues in which he is still unowned.

3B/OF Tyler Nevin, Oakland Athletics (34%)

Oakland has been one of the big surprises this year, and Nevin’s bat has been one of the reasons for this. He has an excellent .302/.378/.465 slash so far, with all four of his home runs hit in the past ten days. While his peripherals hint at some regression, it’s nothing too crazy, and Nevin seems like a surprisingly solid pickup right now, especially considering his dual eligibility. 

SP Ben Lively, Cleveland Guardians (30%)

Lively’s addition here is mainly due to the Guardians’ impressive pitching coaching. He doesn’t throw very hard, but as long as he can stay within himself and prevent the walks, he could prove to be of sneaky value in deeper formats. 

OF Trevor Larnach, Minnesota Twins (21%)

Larnach has continued to hit with authority, with a crazy 93 mph average exit velocity. He won’t play much against lefties, but the Twins will want to keep him in the lineup as long as he’s hitting this well. He’s worth consideration in deeper leagues.
