Fantasy baseball waivers and discarded fantasy baseball players can make or break a season. You may have adjusted your fantasy baseball cheat sheets over and over during spring training. If your team remains the same after opening day, though, you will probably have trouble competing in your rotisserie baseball league.

When is it time to give up on your fantasy baseball sleepers? Which players are worth retaining? KFFL.com's Diamond Market series gives you the fantasy baseball tips and advice you need to sort through the masses quickly.

Key

Discard - Drop player (in most circumstances)

Stash - Hold player if roster space is available; consider dropping if trend continues

Hold - Do not drop player (in most circumstances)

Outfielders

Adam L. Jones, Baltimore Orioles

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam L. Jones
Jones done for '09

The O's transferred Jones (ankle) to the 60-day DL, essentially ending his season. If you're in a single-year league, you have license.

Shallow mixed: Discard

Deep mixed: Discard

AL-only: Discard

Starting pitchers

Gil Meche, Kansas City Royals

The right-hander's shoulder issue is the latest in a season marred by injuries and mishaps. The Royals are unlikely to send him to the hill again this year. In August he was 2-1 despite an 8.14 ERA and a 1.90 WHIP. Find someone else to help you in the final few weeks.

Shallow mixed: Discard

Deep mixed: Discard

AL-only: Discard

Brett Cecil, Toronto Blue Jays

The Jays have shut him down. Only keeper leaguers can consider his roster spot valuable.
