Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire: As Josh Jung, Alec Burleson prepare to debut, David Villar is already delivering

Meanwhile, Joey Meneses continues to be overlooked.

As of this writing, Josh Jung isn’t even one of the 50 most viewed players in CBS Sports leagues. I’m sure it’ll change once the article goes up with Jung’s name in the headline, but that name should already be front and center amid reports of him getting the call Friday.

What it tells me is that Fantasy Baseballers — the ones who play on our site, anyway — are suffering from a crippling case of prospect fatigue.

And who can blame them? The past two weeks have been a whirlwind, our familiar rhythms having been upended by incentives built into the new CBA. September is now the optimal time for teams to promote their top prospects, and so many have. Some of those prospects have made an immediate impact in Fantasy (Gunnar Henderson, Hunter Brown). Others less so (Miguel Vargas, Ken Waldichuk).

I predict Jung will be among the former.
