Weekly Waiver Wire Report

Note: My waiver wire report digs a little deeper and is slanted toward high-stakes leagues (15 teams)

Catchers

The free catching pool in 12 and 15 leagues is full of have-nots. Fantasy owners will have an ongoing battle of playing the hot hand or rostering the best possible players with upside. My bet this season has been on Daulton Varsho. Still, I can’t sell you on him with no minor league stats or any indication by the Diamondbacks that he will be called up.

Luis Torrens, SEA

Over the last week, the Mariners leaned on Torrens at catcher while also starting him at DH due to some injuries. He has seven hits over his previous 24 at-bats, but Torrens is still looking for his first home run in 2021 while delivering only one RBI. His bat flashed at AA in 2019 when he hit .300 with 15 home runs and 62 RBI over 350 at-bats. If my team has an issue at C2, Torrens would be my top choice this week on the waiver wire.
