MLB Waiver Wire Pickups – 5/2/16

Each week, we will take a look at a few players who would make good pickups in your season long fantasy leagues.

Welcome to our MLB Daily Fantasy Breakdown! Today, we have a nice slate of Wednesday night baseball. Yesterday night was a tough night for me. While I did have big ownership of a lot of Pittsburgh bats, the rest of my bats and pitching really let me down. I did not have nearly enough David Price. Tonight is a new night though. If you like what you see, don’t hesitate to follow us on Twitter @researchandwin and let us know we helped you or yell at us for leading you down the wrong path. With that out of the...
