Hey, how are you? Are you confident and cruising or desperate and humbled? Investing such high draft capital in any superstar succumbed to injury can be soul crushing. But no matter if you’re dominating the field or scraping to get by, checking in on players and monitoring the waiver wire can keep you competitive.

STREAMER OF THE WEEK (OWNED: 70% CBS, 35% YAHOO, 14% ESPN)
Trevor Richards (4/15 vs. CHC, 4/21 vs. WAS)
2.00 ERA 1.11 WHIP 9.0 K/9 in 18.0 IP
Trevor Richards may have a 5.0 BB/9, but he is currently sporting a 14.7% swinging strike rate (10th in MLB) and a 32.4% o-swing (29th in MLB), which is well above the league average of 29.3%. He also has a 68.2% contact rate, which is the 9th lowest in the league and has yielded 11, 13 and 18 swinging strikes in his last 3 starts. Opposing batters are currently hitting .088 against his changeup, which has resulted in a 23.3% swinging strike rate. Pair this with 2 struggling offenses in the Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals, paired with a home pitchers park, Trevor Richards should be in for a solid Week 3.

GM Brodie Van Wagenen has put together a roster that can compete, whether the rest of the baseball universe believes it or not. Van Wagenen is the former co-founder of Creative Artists Agency. He helped negotiate deals for Robinson Cano with the Mariners and Yoenis Cespedes with the Mets among others. Trying to get away from their conventional approach, Van Wagenen added some new pieces to improve the Mets chances in 2019.
