Fantasy baseball managers can no longer brush off shortcomings by pointing to the calendar and remarking on how early it is in the season. With 2019's midway mark rapidly approaching, few teams can afford to maintain their roster's status quo.
Depending on the league's depth and activity, the waiver wire could now be a bit more barren than it was two months ago. It should be far too late to snag Lucas Giolito, Frankie Montas, Tommy La Stella, Franmil Reyes or Yordan Alvarez for free. (If not, get on that now.) There are nevertheless plenty of viable contributors who remain unclaimed in most formats.
