Fresh off the All-Star break, Jan Levine gets into his National League waiver options for this week, which includes several big-name players -- like Dee Gordon and A.J. Pollock -- returning from lengthy absences sooner rather than later.
Jan Levine's tour of the National League waiver wire includes Arizona's Daniel Hudson, who has been fantastic out of the bullpen this season and has solidified himself as the closer in waiting for the Diamondbacks.
Erik Siegrist checks out the available National League free agents while everyone waits for Super-2 callups and finds a strong group of veterans coming off the DL, including Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta.
Cesar Hernandez is cranking the ball well of late, landing the confidence of Phillies’ interim manager Pete Mackanin, suggesting that Hernandez could continue to play every day at second base even when Chase Utley is activated from the DL.
