Fantasy Baseball Waiver-Wire Targets: April 26, 2019

April 26, 2019
The most anticipated promotion in fantasy baseball is finally here: The Toronto Blue Jays have promoted Vladimir Guerrero Jr., and he will make his debut April 26. Guerrero is a special talent and should make an immediate fantasy impact with his bat. The youngster started to drop in drafts after his spring training injury, but most had to reach for him if they wanted to draft him. Now we will see if that gamble will pay off. 

Waiver-Wire Targets:

Colorado Rockies Infielder Ryan McMahon -- I mentioned McMahon earlier this season after Daniel Murphy landed on the injured list -- and then, of course, McMahon got hurt. However, he's back and has collected five hits along with two home runs since returning. The Rockies have played a lot of road games early in the season, but have 17 home games in the month of May. The time to buy Rockies hitters is now.

Atlanta Braves Starting Pitcher Mike Soroka -- The 21-year-old has made two starts this season and has allowed just two earned runs while striking out 13. Soroka was dealing with a shoulder injury to start the season but appears to be completely healthy. The Braves aren't easing him back into action either, as they allowed the youngster to throw 109 pitches in his second start. The right-hander hasn't completed six innings yet, so that will be the next hurdle. I think Soroka will be a solid rotation addition to any fantasy roster.

Arizona Diamondbacks Starting Pitcher Luke Weaver -- It appears I was a year too early on Weaver along with Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Luis Castillo. Both pitchers were on my breakouts in 2018, but they both failed miserably. Both are off to strong starts this season, but Weaver is the one who can be added off the waiver wire. Weaver has yet to allow more than four earned runs and is pitching to a 3.33 ERA. I loved Weaver's strikeout rate last year, and it appears to be back this season with a 10.3 strikeout per nine innings. Weaver is rapidly approaching the 50 percent ownership mark, so he needs to be added now.
