BN- B.J. Upton, Avisail Garcia, Corey Hart
N/A- Oscar Tavares, George Springer
SP- David Price, Jon Lester, Ubaldo Jimenez, Zach Wheeler, Dan Straily, Drew Hutchison
SP- Jonathan Neise, Andrew Cashner, DL- Matt Harvey

I would try to upgrade 1b. I don't know what the waiver wire looks like but if Castro is still out there as a catcher, try to couple Martinez and Laroche for a better 1b or depending on waiver options throw a pitcher in. I'm high on Castro and think he will produce just as much as Martinez. Overall though your team is well balanced so I would just try 2 for 1 trades to get even better when there is a waiver option out there to almost match the loss of the extra player.

I really like the catching options on your wire castro and gattis are both having great seasons. Blanks also has a better avg than LaRoche and only has 2 fewer HRs. I probably wouldn't drop either of your guys for those options but if you can turn Victor Martinez or Adam Laroche into value at another position via trade then do it because the drop off with those pickups will be minimal.

I think Simmons is overowned. He's a better real life player than fantasy. I like your Waiver Wire in general. Hosmer and Blanks are people I'd take a gamble on. The back end of your rotation could use a small boost. I like Kuroda, but not Lester and Gallardo.

I like the idea of VMart and LaRoche for an upgrade at first. I would then pick up Castro as Gattis is going on the DL. Otherwise, you have a solid team.
