As the 2017 MLB season approaches the end of the season, most fantasy baseball seasons are now in playoff mode. While you may be in the playoffs based on players that have been on your team all season, those that are looking for an edge in the fantasy baseball playoffs should consider a number of potential waiver wire additions. There are several key players gaining attention in MLB lineups that could help any fantasy team today.
The first player that could be a great addition to your fantasy team is Ben Gamel, who is an outfielder for the Seattle Mariners. Game was recently called up from the minor leagues and since has been nothing short of dominant. Over the past two weeks, he is hitting nearly .375 with 2 homers and 11 RBIs. At the same time, he is doing great in the field, which will help him to stay in the lineup the rest of the season.
If he has not been picked up already Rhys Hoskins would be a great addition to your fantasy baseball team. Hoskins has been one of the best players in the league over the past month. In fact, he became the fastest player ever to hit 10 homeruns in his career after he hit his 10th in just 20 games. It also appears that this power could be continuing in the future. Last season, when he was in the minor leagues, Hoskins hit 38 homeruns and was considered one of the best in his league.
