Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire: Keep your Bats Torrid and pick up Luis Torrens

Fantasy Baseball Weekly Waiver Wire Report - Week of June 21. Heading into Saturday night, Seattle turned to Torrens as the lead catcher in three of their past four matchups. He responded with six hits in 13 at-bats with three runs, two home runs, and four RBI. His attraction and upside come from a successful 2019 season at AA (.300 over 350 at-bats with 15 home runs and 62 RBI). Torrens fails into the hot catching play of the week in deep leagues.

What followed was a thrashing from defending champion Brazil that could have been much worse than the 3–0 scoreline.

Big, Bad Bryson DeChambeau is Back and Ready to Defend His U.S. Open Title

SAN DIEGO – After the 1974 U.S. Open, Dick Schaap wrote a book called, The Massacre at Winged Foot. It commemorated a scratch-and-claw Open many of us watched as kids. In the end Hale Irwin was left holding the trophy. His winning score was 7 over par, the highest winning score at a U.S. Open since 1963, when Julius Boros won at 9 over at The Country Club outside Boston.

Surprising, Yet Deserving, U.S. Open Winner Could Emerge From Crowded Leaderboard

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – A proper U.S. Open is a contest to see who can be the last to fall out of the boat in a storm, and what is unfolding at Torrey Pines is a proper U.S. Open. It hasn’t always been thrilling, but that’s why we have the Masters. This is, as Rory McIlroy said, “the only tournament in the world where you fist-pump a bogey.” He felt like doing that on 15, after hitting his drive into a ravine, where a rattlesnake and a penalty stroke awaited. He made bogey and stayed in the boat. He will wake up on Father’s Day, his first as a dad, with a chance to win his fifth major.
