TV:

The big early-week series are still rolling around the MLB, and that makes this morning a great opportunity to take another look at the fantasy baseball waiver wire. We’ve got a fresh crop of trending names for you to peruse today, so let’s check out the numbers.

Jameson Taillon, SP, Pittsburgh Pirates: Need a plug-in pitching prospect moving forward? Taillon is your guy. He’s going to be making his major league debut tonight against the Mets.
Taillon got the call-up due to a rainout Monday and a doubleheader today. In Triple-A ball, he’s posted a 2.04 ERA and could stick around if he plays well.

Fantasy Baseball 2016: Waiver Wire Update 6/8

USA TODAY Sports

Zach Davies, SP, Milwaukee Brewers: Davies was great once again yesterday against the A’s, going seven innings and allowing just two runs. That makes three wins in a row for him.
Davies is in the middle of a hot run right now, and holds a 4.29 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP on the season. He’ll take the mound next against the Mets on Sunday.

Matt Adams, 1B, St. Louis Cardinals: Adams has had his proverbial ups and downs this year but has played well lately. He’s sitting on a seven-game hit streak, during which he’s provided four RBI, two runs and a homer on eight hits.
On the season, Adams is hitting .338 with seven homers and 28 RBI to his credit. He’s becoming a nice pickup as the Reds series closes out.

Zack Cozart, SS, Cincinnati Reds: Speaking of the Reds, let’s look at Cozart, who is trending a little bit lately. In his last seven starts, he’s put up seven runs, three homers and seven RBI. He went 1-for-5 yesterday.
That gives Cozart a .301 BA with eight homers and 23 RBI on the season. If you’re hurting for a middle infielder, you could do worse right now.

Derek Norris C/1B, San Diego Padres: The catcher position in fantasy is pretty abysmal right now, so Norris is a hot pickup. He’s got three hits in his last two games, featuring a solo homer, two RBI and a steal.
Norris is hitting .208 on the year but does have seven homers with 16 RBI in there. For a low-end catcher, that’s about as good as it’s going to get right now.
