Fantasy Baseball dynasty league owners are always searching for the next young fireballer. However, there are more than a handful of options to chose from this week. So to help you stay competitive in your dynasty league, here are the top-five young hurlers worth adding off wavier wire in Week 2.
With all the glaring concerns about Atlanta’s rotation, Hale was forced into a starting role this spring. The 26-year-old only lasted five innings (73 pitches) in his 2014 debut, but he didn’t allow any earned runs and struck out four batters. He will be a reliable strikeout pitcher and will be worth grabbing in all leagues with 10-plus owners.
After a long battle between Mejia and veteran Daisuke Matsuzaka, the 24-year-old earned the job as the team’s fifth starter. He won his first start of the season, and in just six innings, the right-hander fanned eight batters. Mejia can be a serviceable SP6 or SP7, as long as he holds down a spot in the rotation.
E-Ram was throwing bullets all spring long. He posted a 3-0 record to go along with a 1.14 ERA/0.85 WHIP and the youngster quickly earned a spot in Seattle’s injury-riddled rotation. Ramirez struggled in his most recent start (4 IP, 5 ERs, 1 K), but he still has a strong hold on a rotation spot. King Felix Jr. will come around and will be worth adding immediately in all dynasty league formats.
The Rangers are another injury-riddled rotation that has been forced to promote within. Ross shined in his first start of the 2014 season, and while he didn’t get the win, he still had a strong fantasy stat line. He struck out seven batters in five innings of work and the southpaw was able turn some heads in the process. Feel free to add him in deeper leagues this week.
Among all the young fireballers making noise this past week, Paxton was by far the most impressive. He allowed two hits (no earned runs) in his seven-inning debut and the 25-year-old struck out nine batters. He will be the ultimate addition in dynasty leagues this week.
