Fantasy baseball waivers and discarded fantasy baseball players can make or break a season. You may have adjusted your fantasy baseball cheat sheets over and over during spring training. If your team remains the same after opening day, though, you will probably have trouble competing in your rotisserie baseball league.

When is it time to give up on your fantasy baseball sleepers? Which players are worth retaining?'s Diamond Market series gives you the fantasy baseball tips and advice you need to sort through the masses quickly.


Discard - Drop player (in most circumstances)

Stash - Hold player if roster space is available; consider dropping if trend continues

Hold - Do not drop player (in most circumstances)

First basemen

Derrek Lee, Chicago Cubs

A personal matter kept the vet out of Thursday's contest and will reportedly do the same Friday. He has also been dealing with neck and foot injuries. If you can't wait for his return, you can move on.

Shallow mixed: Discard

Deep mixed: Stash

NL-only: Stash


Corey Hart, Milwaukee Brewers

Broken Hart
You have no Hart

Hart has been shut down for the season. Single-year owners should find at-bats elsewhere.

Shallow mixed: Discard

Deep mixed: Discard

NL-only: Discard

J.D. Drew, Boston Red Sox

Typical Drew (shoulder), as the injury-prone bat could be out for the next few days as the Sox prep for the postseason. No reason to remain married here.

Shallow mixed: Discard

Deep mixed: Discard

AL-only: Discard
