Joey P. is here to share his favorite Waiver Wire pickups heading into Week 7 of your fantasy baseball season!

We had a big week for prospect call-ups, and even better, the big three were all on the top 10 of the prospects to stash article from last week. We will say goodbye to Joey Loperfido, Jordan Beck, and Tyler Black while welcoming a few new names.

Kyle Manzardo was the one who was on last week, but I jumped him a spot or two. I currently view my list as a “big four.” These four could happen at any moment, and I believe are must-adds. I am not saying the rest aren’t must-adds, but more of an unknown on their timeline. So, without wasting any more time, let’s get to the list of fantasy baseball prospects to stash.
