Fantasy baseball waivers and the acquisition of fantasy baseball free agents can make or break your season. Your fantasy baseball cheat sheets won't help you after spring training. If your team remains the same after opening day, you will have trouble competing in your rotisserie baseball league.

Do you need to replace your fantasy baseball busts? Which fantasy baseball players can you ignore?'s Fantasy Baseball Diamond Market gives you fantasy baseball tips and insight to sort through the masses quickly.


Acquire Add player (in most circumstances)
Watch Track player, add if trend continues
Pass Do not add player (in most circumstances)



Travis Snider, OF, Toronto Blue Jays

Toronto Blue Jays OF Travis Snider
Too talented to wait on

The Jays wanted to wait until they could clear a roster spot for him; they'll call up Snider on Friday. He won't play every day, at least initially. Jose Bautista, Fred Lewis and Edwin Encarnacion are all variables in this equation. If Toronto deals Bautista (unlikely, but possible), bets are off.

Snider hit the DL in mid-May with a sprained wrist. He wasn't cleared to hit for a month or so, and wrist issues concern fantasy owners because they can negate a hitter's power.

A week ago, Snider slugged a homer in three consecutive games, and he drilled another last night. That doesn't mean he's out of the woods, but it sounds like he's recovering nicely. He was on a tear before the injury. The chance is worth a roster spot.
