After months of planning, prepping and analyzing, fantasy baseball drafts have been completed and the Major League Baseball season has finally begun.  Some owners are pretty happy with the way things turned out and some are already regretting some of their decisions, but even owners with the most prodigious of drafts will turn toward the waiver wire to make any changes necessary to their teams.

It’s important to remember to never sit on your laurels in fantasy baseball.  Even if you’ve won your first week by a 9-1 margin, there are always ways to improve your team, and basking in the glory of a hot streak may prevent you from snagging the next Kris Medlen or Aaron Hill off the wire.  Using your allotted moves wisely in order to maximize schedule volume and take advantage of matchups will be key components to winning.

This column will be featured every Sunday, and is dedicated to helping fantasy baseball owners find the diamonds in the rough among the waiver wires.  All suggested players will never be more than 60% owned in both ESPN and Yahoo! leagues.
