It’s Monday, and around here that means it’s time once again to check in on some of the notable waiver wire adds in the world of fantasy baseball. We’ve got a fresh crop of names for you to peruse this morning, so let’s take a closer look at the numbers and see who might make sense for your lineup.

Brandon Moss, 1B/OF, St. Louis Cardinals: Moss was one of fantasy’s most-added players yesterday, even though he came up empty in the Cincinnati finale (0-for-4).
Prior to that game, Moss had gone 3-for-6 in his most recent two appearances, with two homers and five RBI. That gives him a .269 BA with four long-balls and 10 RBI this year. Moss will see the Cubs at home starting today.

USA TODAY Sports

Chase Anderson, SP, Milwaukee Brewers: Now let’s move on to the mound and check out Anderson. He’s been throwing pretty well so far, logging a 1-0 record across 11 total innings with nine strikeouts so far.
Anderson owns a nice 0.00 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP, and has done it against some pretty good competition. He’ll next get the start tonight in Minnesota and looks like a nice pickup.

Jerad Eickhoff, SP, Philadelphia Phillies: Another good-looking add on the mound for today’s games is Eickhoff. He’s 1-1 with 12 innings of work so far, logging 12 strikeouts with a 1.50 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP.
Eickhoff is still available in about half the fantasy leagues out there, and will get a home start against the Mets this evening. He’s a popular sleeper pick this season, and is already paying off.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C, Detroit Tigers: In low-end catcher news, Saltalamacchia is coming off another solid performance in the Astros finale. He logged a 2-for-4 line in that one, nailing a solo homer.
That gives Saltalamacchia a 4-for-9 line in his last two games with two homers and three RBI. He’s a nice deeper-league catcher going into tomorrow’s series in Kansas City.

Nick Castellanos, 3B, Detroit Tigers: Let’s close out with another Tigers player, this one Castellanos on the hot corner. He’s coming off a 1-for-4 line against the Astros yesterday, which gives him nine hits, four runs, a homer and five RBI over his last four games.
Castellanos has been on fire in April, hitting .368 with eight RBI. He’ll stroke out a ton, and won’t take walks, but while he’s hitting you might as well use him in deeper formats.
