Corner infielders

Troy Glaus, 1B, Atlanta Braves

After a sluggish April, his 10-game stretch of .400-2-13 has rekindled mixed interest. The flyballs and power haven't completely shown up yet. However, he's firmly planted in the middle of Atlanta's order, and his shoulder hasn't had any reported issues.

A return to his previous pop isn't out of the question, either. A mix of stat lines from his 2007 (.262-20-62) and 2008 (.270-27-99) campaigns isn't a bad pull from your waiver wire for a corner infield or utility spot.

Shallow mixed: Watch

Deep mixed: Acquire

NL-only: Acquire


Manuel Corpas, RP, Colorado Rockies

Atlanta Braves 1B Troy Glaus
Things are lookin' up for Glaus

Franklin Morales (shoulder) hit the DL, affirming Corpas' takeover of the interim closer role. His stay in the job will probably be short due to the impending return of Huston Street (shoulder), but those with a reserve spot for potential saves could tuck Corpas away for a bit even after Street returns.

Shallow mixed: Acquire

Deep mixed: Acquire

NL-only: Acquire

Jose Contreras, RP, Philadelphia Phillies

Brad Lidge's balky surgically repaired right elbow will undergo tests. The injury hasn't been reported as serious, but beat the rush and pick up Contreras, who's next in line for saves.

Shallow mixed: Acquire

Deep mixed: Acquire

NL-only: Acquire
