Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire: Bryson Stott, Jake Burger beginning to feast on big-league pitching

Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire: Bryson Stott, Jake Burger beginning to feast on big-league pitching

Meanwhile, Tanner Houck and Tanner Scott emerge as possible closers.

Boy, has my infield depth improved over the past week. You know why? Because I keep landing up-and-comers like Bryson Stott, Jake Burger and Luis Garcia.

I’d venture to say you haven’t. They’re rostered in only 37, 22 and 21 percent of CBS Sports leagues, respectively. Part of it’s because, well, not everybody plays in the sort of league where infield depth is beneficial. Maybe it’s so small that quality replacements can always be found on the waiver wire. Maybe it’s so slanted toward pitching that stockpiling arms makes more sense. I’m not saying everyone could use Stott, Burger or Garcia.

But everyone with a need at second, third or shortstop could, as could everyone with an interest in upside. I’d say the bigger reason why they haven’t been widely added yet is because people look at what those three have done in the majors so far and presume they’re small potatoes. Let’s see if I can convince you otherwise.
