Fantasy Baseball Diamond Market - NL

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)


Ramon Hernandez, C, Cincinnati Reds

Cincinnati Reds C Ramon Hernandez
Oldie, but a goodie

Someone forgot to tell Hernandez that he's washed up. Maybe his last stint on the DL for a knee injury cured him! Since his activation, the 34-year-old is 20-for-55 (.364) with three homers, 16 RBIs and 12 runs. He took one walk during that stretch - but he also struck out just once.

Do you play catcher roulette in a shallow league? Have you checked your deep league's wire lately? He still splits time with Ryan Hanigan, but he's easily a second catcher somewhere, at least for now. In such formats, fantasy baseball players ride the roller coaster, but few were in line for a ride on Hernandez. When he hits a rut or his knee buckles, you can send him back from whence he came.

Shallow mixed: Consider

Deep mixed: Acquire

NL-only: Acquire
