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)
Consider Add for speculation or because of need
Watch Track player, consider if trend continues
Pass Do not add player (in most circumstances)



Brett Hayes, C, Florida Marlins

Manager Edwin Rodriguez said that he plans to rest Ronny Paulino a little more often down the stretch and give Hayes additional time. John Baker (elbow) hopes to return by the end of August. That might be optimistic, but he could be a factor here in September.

Wonder what Hayes (.250 BA, .442 SLG in 52 major league at-bats) could do with more time? His minor league record isn't encouraging.

Jose Guillen, OF, San Francisco Giants

The Kansas City Royals found a taker via trade waivers. In 106 games, Guillen hit .255 with 16 ding dongs and 62 RBIs for KC. He'll be active for tonight's three-gamer with the division-leading San Diego Padres.

The Giants are likely to move Aubrey Huff back to first on a regular basis to accommodate Guillen in right field. They probably have to play him at least occasionally to keep him happy. There's legit concern about how this move will affect San Fran's mix, which seemed pretty sound before this move.

The revitalized Pat Burrell and Aaron Rowand (a part-timer at this point) are no strangers to injuries. It's hard for many to be hopeful about Guillen, but opportunity exists.
