Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Adds: Week 20
Nailing the waiver wire and the players available are critical to beating out your league-mates in season-long formats.
Each week we will take a look at players who are rostered in fewer than 50% of Yahoo leagues and can help out your season-long squads. Remember, if you aren’t scouring the waiver wire, you are falling behind. There's only two months left in the season -- let's go!
Joey Meneses, 1B, Washington Nationals
Roster Percentage: 9%
Clearly out of contention this season, Meneses has made quite a mark so far in his short time frame in the nation's capital city. He's smacked five homers in the last 14 days, and he homered in each of his first three games following his call up.
It may not last long, but in the short term, if you are in desperate need of power, he could be a solid add.
Rowan Wick, RP, Chicago Cubs
Roster Percentage: 34%
We get to this brutal point in the season -- especially once we fold some trades in -- where closers can be tough to come by.
The Cubs may not win a ton of games, but it's clear that Wick is the current closer du jour, and he's worthy of an add if you are chasing saves.
Vaughn Grissom, 2B, Atlanta Braves
Roster Percentage: 45%
The power doesn't seem as likely in the tool kit, but the speed very well could be -- and with Ozzie Albies not back from injury yet, he could make for a tantalizing play.
Trent Grisham, OF, San Diego Padres
Roster Percentage: 36%
If you need help in your outfield, Trent Grisham may be worthy of a long look.
There's been plenty to talk about in San Diego, but perhaps one thing going a bit unnoticed has been the stellar play of Grisham. In the last two weeks alone, he's smashed his way to five dingers, logging double-digit runs scored and driven in over that time frame.
His season long numbers are less than impressive (.201 batting average), but if you can add him down your stretch run, he may be a difference maker.
