Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Pickups: Jordan Beck, Tyler Nevin, Wenceel Perez

The calendar has turned to May and it’s time to stop ignoring the standings and see if your fantasy teams are contenders and if there are glaring needs. It’s important to remain active and consistently look for Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Pickups. Keep a particular eye on saves and the percentage categories. Most of the counting stats can be attacked via trades, though bad ratios could be hard to recover from without blockbuster trades for superstar pitchers.

Some good fantasy baseball waiver wire pickups and sleepers are in this space. Keep mining the bad teams who might have some hidden gems that are being ignored by league mates. Add pitchers on good teams, even if they’re off to rough starts, as they could provide some help either in spot starts or potentially turn things around altogether and get a good stretch of pitching. So much is still possible in the next five months. It’s time for some deep sleepers.

Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Pickups: Week 7

Let’s dive into our top Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Pickups for the coming week.

Jordan Beck (OF – COL): 7%

The No. 4 prospect for the Rockies, according to MLB.com, Jordan Beck hit .303 with a .999 OPS at Triple-A Albuquerque, tallying five home runs and 28 RBI in 25 games. He added five steals and is a very good power-speed prospect. While Albuquerque is a hitter’s haven, playing home games at Coors Field is pretty good, too.

Beck went 3-for-11 in his first taste of the big leagues (three games), hitting in the bottom half of the lineup. He’s worth picking up as a speculative pick as Nolan Jones and Kris Bryant are on the IL. The rookie might bang his way into everyday action, playing half his games at mile-high altitudes.

Tyler Nevin (1B, 3B, OF – OAK): 6%

In nine games covering April 23 to May 1, Tyler Nevin hit .389 with a 1.145 OPS, four home runs and seven RBI. He was in the two-spot in the lineup for much of that time. Fantasy league mates have probably ignored Nevin because he’s in Oakland, but let them miss out. A home series against Miami is on tap this weekend. Oh yeah, he’s a three-position player, too, so what are you waiting for?

Wenceel Perez (2B, OF – DET): 3%

Wenceel Perez has an unexpected .298 average with a .961 OPS in 16 games for the Tigers. The switch-hitter has been a fixture toward the top of the Detroit lineup, hitting either second or third in every game for Detroit since April 19. Multi-position eligibility at second base and in the outfield is a rare combination, so pick him up and move him around your fantasy lineup as needed.
