Many of the prospects that will get promoted have already seen some big league action.However http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , it’s still important to monitor their progress and determine if they can help improve your team. There’s still plenty of talent on league waiver wires. We’ll identify players who can steal bases, and we’ll also introduce you to a closer who’s owned in less than 25 percent of fantasy leagues.PLAYERS TO PICK UPLUIS URIAS, 2B/SS, San Diego Padres (23 percent owned in CBSSports.com leagues) – Urias will be batting close to the top of the Padres lineup as their starting second baseman for the rest of the season. Urias can hit for average, as his .306 career minor league batting average suggests, and he could also potentially help you in the stolen base category.AMED ROSARIO, SS, New York Mets (45 percent) – Rosario is another infielder who can provide a boost in batting average and stolen bases. He got off to a slow start but is batting .329 with five stolen bases in his last 19 games.ROMAN QUINN, OF, Philadelphia Phillies (6 percent) – Quinn has stolen at least 30 bases in five different minor league seasons and he’s been a fixture in the Phillies lineup for the past few weeks. He’s batting .369 and has a .388 OBP in 27 games for the Phillies this season.TREVOR HILDENBERGER RP, Minnesota Twins (22 percent) – It isn’t often that fantasy baseball players can find a closer on the waiver wire this late in the season, but since Aug. 11, Hildenberger has notched a win and converted all five of his save opportunities.TWO-START PITCHERS TO STREAMMATT HARVEY Miguel Andujar Jersey , SP, Cincinnati Reds (50 percent) – Harvey has a 3.18 ERA and has struck out 24 batters over his last 23 IP. He has favorable matchups against the Pirates and Padres next week.JOEY LUCCHESI, SP, San Diego Padres (53 percent) – Lucchesi’s ERA is actually better when he pitches on the road (2.89 on the road vs. 3.97 home ERA). He’s a strikeout pitcher who has road matchups next week against the Diamondbacks and Reds.JAKOB JUNIS, SP, Kansas City Royals (40 percent) – Junis has a 2.32 ERA in his last five starts, striking out 33 batters in 31 innings while walking just five. He takes on the Indians and later has a winnable start against the Twins next week.HITTERS TO STREAMCOLIN MORAN 1B/3B, Pittsburgh Pirates (17 percent) – Moran has been getting consistent at bats and he’s made them count. He’s batting .333 over the past two weeks. He takes on the Braves to start the weekend but finishes next week with a juicy matchup against the Reds, against whom he’s batted .317 with three home runs on the season.MIKIE MAHTOOK, OF, Detroit Tigers (1 percent) – Baseball fans sometimes forget that Mahtook was a first round pick in baseball’s 2011 amateur draft. He’s got skills and is batting .360 over his last seven games. He ends next week with a three-game set against a soft White Sox pitching staff.JOEY WENDLE 2B/OF, Tampa Bay Rays (28 percent) – Wendle is batting .333 with five stolen bases over the past month. He ends the week against the Blue Jays, who have a league worst 7.59 ERA over the past week. KISSIMMEE Tim Tebow Jersey , Fla. (AP) — When Ronald Acuna Jr. returned to the Atlanta clubhouse, Braves star Freddie Freeman playfully told the NL Rookie of the Year there still was work to do.“You should have kept going,” Freeman kidded, “and gone for the cycle.”Acuna went 3 for 3 with a long home run and double off St. Louis opening day starter Miles Mikolas in Atlanta’s 5-0 exhibition win Tuesday. Good enough that former Braves great Dale Murphy sheepishly asked Acuna for his autograph, demonstrating the stature the 21-year-old outfielder has achieved after less than a full season in the big leagues.“I’ve felt good from the day we started camp, but as the games progressed I’ve felt even better,” Acuna said through a translator. “I think with these last at-bats, just a little extra patience has gone into it. I’ve had good at-bats even if the results weren’t what we would have wanted, but things are progressing quickly and we kind of see the results now.”Acuna hit .293 with 26 home runs in 111 games last year, helping the Braves win the NL East after four straight losing seasons. His three homers are among nine hits in 25 at-bats this spring.The Braves open the season March 28 at Philadelphia. Last year, Acuna was not brought up to the majors until April 25.“I’ve been anxious for the season to start since we got here to camp. I’ve felt ready, I’ve been wanting this to happen,” he said. “When the season starts is out of my control. All I can control is how I go about my business.”AROUND THE GRAPEFRUIT AND CACTUS LEAGUES:ASTROS SUSPENSIONInjured Houston pitcher Francis Martes has been suspended for 80 games following a positive test for the banned performance-enhancing drug Clomiphene.
