Fantasy baseball is winding down and MLB lineups are getting changed to account for the end of the season and a playoff run. Sites like Fantasy Alarm are preparing players by showcasing some of the best talent still available on the waiver wire. Today we are going to look over a few young players that could make a difference in your MLB lineups. We’ll start by looking over a few key hitters who could end up helping the top of your order before looking at a few solid pitchers.
Jed Lowrie, 2B – Oakland A’s
Lowrie is an old hand in the baseball world but he is definitely showcasing some new skills at the plate. Lowrie is easily having his best season in years and he is doing in right in the heart of the surprisingly talented Oakland line up. He’s a great fill in middle infielder.
Rhys Hoskins, 1B – Philadelphia Phillies
Hoskins is one of the most exciting young sluggers in the game and he is terrorizing the baseball at the front of the Philly order. Hoskins has game changing power and is a must-add for teams looking for late season home run potential.
Jose Urena, SP – Miami Marlins
The Marlins have had a lot to cheer for this season and Jose Urena is one of them. Urena has a full three-pitch arsenal that is topped off with an amazing 96 MPH heater. Urena should be added on punch out value alone but he also has potential to eat up innings and rack up a few quality starts.
Luis Perdomo, SP – San Diego Padres
Luis Perdom isn’t a game changer on the mound but he is good enough to make a difference for teams who need a little bit of pitching help without sacrificing too much.
