Jake Marisnick was a third-round pick for the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2009 Draft. After honing a do-everything centerfield profile for two seasons in the low minors, he began popping up on industry Top 100 Prospect lists reaching as high as 28 in 2012 with a low of 79 prior to 2014.
Fantasy owners really need to alter their mindset when it comes to the waiver wire. Each and every year I see players available on waivers that have no issue being there, and this year is no different. Using Yahoo as an example, Brandon Crawford is the second ranked shortstop (in the entire league) and yet he is available in 47% of leagues. Dexter Fowler is a top 20 outfield option and yet he is available in 44% of leagues.
This week was a bad one for injuries with at least five everyday starters going on the disabled list. However, finding replacements for them on fantasy rosters isn’t as easy as just grabbing the next man up. In most cases, the playing time void is being filled by more than one backup. So fantasy owners may need to focus their attention elsewhere.
We all knew there would be risk in investing in Steven Souza or Joc Pederson this season, but there also was a ton of upside. Thus far both have provided mixed results, though, and you have to wonder what are their outlook moving forward? Let’s take a look:

Your Fantasy team is constantly communicating to you. Your roster perpetually tells “you who they are, but we ignore it – because we want them to be who we want them to be.” That might make us hold on to a player too long or not pursue a player that can help our Fantasy team. Listen to what your Fantasy team is telling you and like Draper says, “if you don’t like what’s being said, change the conversation.” How do you change the conversation? You try to buy low and sell high.
