Here is my week two waiver wire. I'm publishing it earlier than I'd like to since I'm going away this weekend.


Koji Uehara, Baltimore Orioles

The Japanese import has had a fantastic start for the Baltimore Orioles, leading them with a 1.80 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP, giving up only five hits and a walk. However, Uehara failed to record a strikeout, though as long as you get a good start from a pitcher, this should not hurt you.  His next start will be on Monday, making him a two start pitcher this week.

Jordan Schafer, Atlanta Braves

Schafer shocked the world by hitting a home run in his first ever MLB at bat. And since then he has hit another home run to go along with, two runs, three RBIs, three walks, and only two strikeouts. All of this in 13 at bats—if he's available, pick him up—you'll be glad you did.


Joey Devine, Oakland Athletics

This is not a shocker as he has hit the 60-Day disabled list and will likely undergo Tommy John Surgery. Even if he lucks out and doesn't need surgery stay away, because the A's have up and coming Brad Ziegler who they will probably opt to use over Devine.

Troy Glaus, St. Louis Cardinals

Glaus is on the 15-Day disabled list but the Cardinals said he will be out until June, so stay away.


Kevin Millwood, Texas Rangers

Millwood has had an amazing opening to the season, with a 1.29 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, 5 K's, and only one walk in seven innings. Also, he gave up only five hits and one earned run. He needs run support to stay where he is; watch him in his next start on Sunday against the Detroit Tigers and Edwin Jackson.

Trevor Cahill, Oakland Athletics

If you don't have this kid, you don't know what you're missing. Cahill posted a 3.60 ERA and a 2.00 WHIP in five innings in his debut. He also had only two earned runs, he did have five walks however and only recorded one strikeout, but, like Uehara, that shouldn't hurt you. His next start will be Monday against Jon Lester and the Boston Red Sox so even though he's a two starter I suggest you stay away for this week.
