As the MLB season enters into the final two months of the season, fantasy baseball waiver claims are more important than ever. Whether you are looking for the next best slugger or a red-hot pitcher to lead your team into the fantasy playoffs, we have you covered here at Fantasy Alarm. Here are three waiver claims that can help your fantasy team to finish on top of the standings.
#1 Jed Lowrie 2B Oakland Athletics
Jed Lowrie is an excellent Utility Infielder that can be inserted into any fantasy MLB lineups. He currently has his highest walk rate in five years and can easily hit anywhere between 12-15 home runs per year. Fantasy owners looking for an MLB player that can play multiple positions should definitely consider picking up Lowrie for the stretch run.
#2 Jose Urena, SP Miami Marlins
Jose Urena is a viable option for any fantasy owner looking to solidify their starting pitching rotation. He can throw a fastball up to 96 MPH and offers a variety of pitches. He has good control, which will limit his walk rate and has recently been promoted to the starting rotation this season. His record is 9-3, and his ERA is 3.82 with over 100 innings pitched. Urena has high upside and should continue to develop into a solid Starting Pitcher for the Miami Marlins.
#3 Hansel Robles SP New York Mets
Hansel Robles is currently the setup man for the New York Mets and offers great value for fantasy teams in need of a reliever. He has a fastball that can reach speeds up to 94 MPH and can strike out a variety of hitters. He currently boasts a record of 6-3 and is a great option for fantasy owners that are in need of pitching wins from their relievers.
