Waiver Wars: New Name
I changed the name of this column from Streaming Wars to Waiver Wars. Because duh. I dunno why this took nearly two seasons. I "discovered" the cleaner branding while driving nine hours yesterday. Anyway, here are some waiver targets for Saturday, September 22.

Pitchers to Use

The picks for Thursday (Matt Shoemaker, Matt Boyd, and Vince Velasquez) clearly demonstrated the downside involved with streaming pitchers. There's upside too, I promise - mostly in the form of volume without commitment. Anyway, some pitchers...

Adam Wainwright vs Giants

Tyler Glasnow at Blue Jays

Jakob Junis at Tigers

Trevor Williams vs Brewers

Anthony DeSclafani at Jose Urena

Marco Gonzales at Mike Minor

Mike Fiers vs Twins

If you're up against your innings cap, tomorrow is the perfect day to run the Yahoo innings exploit. Put simply, you can go waaaay over the IP cap as long as the extra innings are accrued on the same day you hit the cap. Clear?

Waino appears to have rediscovered his curve ball. His fastball is another matter entirely. The Giants are terribad. Glasnow is the top play for strikeouts, albeit with some risk for shenanigans. Most of these other guys are solid mid-tier plays. Some are over 50 percent owned, but you can randomly find them peppered around 12 team mixed formats.

Hitters to Use

Victor Robles vs Corey Oswalt

Luke Voit vs David Hess

Matt Duffy, C.J. Cron, Willy Adames at Thomas Pannone

Tony Kemp vs Jaime Barria

Robinson Chirinos vs Marco Gonzales

The Rays lineup has turned into a go-to waiver target. I listed some right-handed bats opposite a southpaw pitcher, but their lefty sluggers are equally playable. Joey Wendle, Mallex Smith, and Jake Bauers are among those who will probably play.

Voit ain't stoppin'.

The Nationals are getting as many looks as possible at Robles. Kemp may be a surprisingly big piece of the Astros' postseason run. Chirinos offers an option for those in need of a catcher.
