Looking toward Labor Day and the first full week of September, here are four players to take a look at on your fantasy baseball waiver wire.
4-New York Mets SP Robert Gsellman
Gsellman has been solid over his first major league two outings, with a 3.72 ERA that would be better if not a bad to end to his start last Sunday. His next start will come against the Washington Nationals this weekend, but Gsellman is a solid speculative add for the final month.

3-Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller
All things considered, Miller’s return to the big leagues went well on Wednesday (two runs allowed over six innings). It’s possible his demotion to Triple-A allowed him to figure things out, and fantasy owner can consider speculating on it down the stretch this year.

2-Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig
Puig was demoted to Triple-A a month ago, but he has hit well there and is reportedly on his way back to the Dodgers sometime over the next few days. Based on potential along, Puig is worth adding immediately in mixed leagues.

1-Boston Red Sox 2B/3B Yoan Moncada
Moncada is one of the top prospects in all of baseball, with a .298/.411/.518 slash-line, 15 home runs and 45 stolen bases in the minors this year. He will reportedly join the Red Sox on Friday, and manager John Farrell suggested an immediate place in the lineup at third base. Moncada is also eligible right away at second base on Yahoo!, and presumably other league hosts too.
