MLB Week 13 – Waiver Wire Report

The cast is off and Wil Myers has real late season value

The cast is off and Wil Myers should provide real late season value

Wil Myers- San Diego Padres

I know what you’re thinking. Wil Myers is injured and is definitely on the DL, but his cast is off and he should back in about a month. And more importantly, he is a fantastic keeper in dynasty leagues. His value will only continue to increase in the coming years. If Myers is available in your league (which he is in nearly 50%) It only makes sense to grab Myers and stow him away on your bench. He can be a key piece for fantasy teams heading into the playoffs.

Steven Souza Jr.- Tampa Bay Rays

Souza Jr. (involved in the same trade as Myers this offseason) is also available in 50% of leagues. Coming up on the halfway point, he hasn’t played as well as expected. But that should also change, for the better. His batting average is low, but the 14 home runs warrant enough value for a spot on your roster this year. And, more importantly, he again has great keeper value for the future. Nearing the All Star break, he would be a great addition to your team.

Ivan Nova- New York Yankees

Nova is still only owned in 28% of leagues. That is miraculous. Nova has pitched well so far since returning from Tommy John surgery. He has certainly pitched well enough to deserve a spot on your roster. He may fly under the rally, but he could be the key to your playoff push. A solid middle of the rotation arm is often the difference, and Nova is just that.
