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)


Mike Morse, 1B/OF, Washington Nationals

As KFFL's MLB HOTW notes, per Adam Kilgore (The Washington Post), Morse has become a regular - and a regular contributor - since Josh Willingham (knee) bit the dust. Of particular interest is his stretch of 22 starts in his last 23 games, though, for fantasy purposes. In that time, Morse is 28-for-79 (.354) with a .582 slugging percentage, 11 RBIs and 14 runs.

It's not that these numbers are particularly staggering, but it's notable since Morse remains pretty anonymous in most fantasy leagues, particularly those in which OBP and slugging percentage are categories. At this stage, no player is likely to make a noticeable impact in them, but Morse has some serious power and might provide you with a little extra push from your last corner or outfield spot.

Morse is laying the groundwork that should give him a shot at a more prominent role on next year's club, too.
