MLB Waiver Wire Thread 2019 Week 1


This thread is for offering suggested waiver wire pickups and streaming options for week 1 of the 2019 MLB season.


It is not for the following:



Comments that fall into one of these categories or are otherwise not on topic for this thread will be removed.


Some discussion of waiver suggetions is allowed, but this is not the place for an extended debate on the merits of any particular player. Take these in-depth discussions over to the outlook threads for the individual player(s) in question.

2 Players to stream this week in deeper leagues.

Dwight Smith. I am from Baltimore and D. Smith is hitting line drives all over the place. If he sticks he should be a 10/10 player with 15/15 upside. I think he is just a place mat until Austin Hays comes up. I am currently starting D. Smith over Roman Laureano.

Chris Owings. Reports out of KC say Owings will get the majority of playing time at 2b. I would start Owings over Willy Adames.

Those in deep, AL only or 2 catcher leagues need to look at Omar Narvaez. After a poor start in the games in Japan has been tearing it up. Bats lefty so is on the strong side of a platoon and should h

Domingo German lines up against DET & BAL this week. If there was ever a week to take a chance on him... (schedule looks good for several weeks afterward too)

Why Tapia? He barely plays.

For those in need of OF help, Kole Calhoun is off to a fairly productive start and faces some gascan pitchers this week ( @ Sea, v Tex)

He's a nice player imo. Gonna be some solid deep league value here. He's played 2B and 3B, so likely to soon have OF/2B/3B/MI/CI and play daily.

I think .265 with 10+ HR and 20 SB are well within reach

If he keeps struggling, how long will they let him play through it? Is there any point at which KC says “forget it” and sits him down?

He's made some nice contact--just like he was all spring, just hasn't been finding the holes. I think he's got a bit of leash...seems like a Yost kinda player?

I suppose Nicky Lopez could be a factor if the struggles keep for a long stretch...
