When working the fantasy baseball waiver wire, it’s better to strike a week early than wait too long.

Injured players and prospects often get highlighted around these parts before MLB clubs activate them. By then, it’s usually too late, especially for a weekly column where all players must remain available in over half of Yahoo Sports leagues. 

While the aggressiveness has paid off for anybody who stashed Kevin Gausman, it proved premature for Anthony DeSclafani and Eduardo Rodriguez, who have yet to return from the disabled list. 

This week, a trio of middle infielders warrant consideration under this category. They probably won’t provide any return until June, but they won’t sit on the waiver wire for long.
