2011 Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Gems: American League

This week on Waiver Wire Gems – American League:

Bartolo Colon, SP New York Yankees (33% owned in Yahoo, 44% ESPN)

Current Stat Line – 2 W / 1 L / 33 K / 3.00 ERA / 1.09 WHIP

Not a bad stat line for someone available on more than half the waiver wires out there. Looked dominant against the White Sox in his second outing and has given up 3 or fewer earned runs in each of his starts.

Projection: 12 W/ 8 L / 155 K / 3.95 ERA / 1.30 WHIP

2011 Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Gems: American League

Ok, I’ll admit it. I have at least 1 guy on my team that I drafted that hasn’t panned out. Now what, you ask? Now I show my waiver wire genius, that’s what.

Darren Oliver, RP Texas Rangers (20% owned in Yahoo, 22% ESPN)

Current Stat Line – 1 W / 2 L / 2 SV / 8 K / 2.38 ERA / 0.97 WHIP

Oliver has proven himself to be the man in Texas until Feliz returns. That will be soon, but if you are hurting for saves, Oliver would appear to be your guy in Texas for the short-term already converting his first 2 opportunities.

Projection: 3 W/ 3 L / 5 SV / 65 K / 2.58 ERA / 1.12 WHIP
