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)


Chicago Cubs C Geovany Soto
Soto a no-go

Koyie Hill and Welington Castillo, C's, Chicago Cubs

Geovany Soto underwent shoulder surgery on Monday and will miss what's left of the season. He's expected to need about three months to recover; he'll be ready for spring training.

Hill seems likely to play more often than Castillo because he is a switch hitter and has more experience. Castillo, 23, isn't necessarily part of the big picture because of his mediocre minor league resume and Soto's presence.

If you desperately need someone to take at-bats for you at a second backstop spot, monitor this situation. Hill offers no offensive upside. Castillo, despite his BA shortcomings, has some definite pop.

Shallow mixed: Pass

Deep mixed: Pass

NL-only: Consider
