Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Update 9/28/12 Position Players
There’s not much time left to make a run in your fantasy baseball league’s standings. We’ve only got a few more games to exploit in an effort to pump those stats up just a little bit further. With that in mind, there are a few targets out there on the waiver wire who should be able to help you do that over the final games. They’ve been posting solid lines, and should continue through the end of the season.
Brandon Moss, 1B, Oakland Athletics: Hitting safely in his last eight games, Moss has established himself as a reliable low-end option in the waning days of the season. During his streak, he has 10 runs, two homers and three RBI. Moss and the A’s will see the Mariners this weekend, then the Rangers to finish things off.
Justin Smoak, 1B, Seattle Mariners: Smoak has been surging lately, which is great since he’s had such an unremarkable season overall. He’s hit in eight of his last 10, providing four homers, six runs and five RBI in that span. There are a couple of decent pitchers mixed in Smoak’s last six games, but he should emerge with some nice numbers.
Everth Cabrera, 2B, San Diego Padres: Cabrera has frequently shown up on the waiver wire radar throughout September, and here’s why: he has hits in eight of his last 10, with five runs, three RBI and seven steals. Cabrera should nab a few more stolen bases before season’s end, so give him a look if you need swipes.
Donovan Solano, OF, Miami Marlins: Solano isn’t on a whole lot of fantasy owners’ radar screens yet, but he could be in the next few days if he keeps performing. During his seven-game hitting streak, he’s got three runs, two homers and five RBI. Solano makes a solid low-end filler for anyone in need of hitting numbers.
Chris Davis, 3B, Baltimore Orioles: Davis has a nice six-game hit streak going, during which he’s turned in some nice numbers. In that span, he has five runs, two homers and five RBI. Davis will see the Red Sox this weekend and the Rays next week, so he should get the opportunity for some last-minute fantasy damage.
