Top 9 Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Pickups (Week 10)

It’s crazy to think that the MLB season somehow just started but we’re already 10 weeks into the fantasy baseball season. I remember sitting around in January just praying for the day baseball would get here so I could get back into the thick of my writing and now here we are. I love every second of it, including these fantasy baseball waiver wire articles.

Over the past week or so there have been a few guys who’ve emerged as legitimate options in fantasy baseball leagues. Some guys who were thrust into starting roles due to injury or other circumstances have started to put up numbers that are hard to ignore. Even a few rookies have come out of nowhere to start producing numbers that can help fantasy baseball managers be successful.

I really wanted to start a trend where I begin these articles breaking down the horror movie I watched recently, but I’ve been so busy I haven’t had the chance to watch one. When next week rolls around I’ll have one for you guys to check out. I have a few on the list I’m interested in and hopefully, this week will be much less hectic.

In the fantasy baseball world, though, there is going to be plenty going on this week. Almost every team plays at least six games, with a good chunk playing a full seven-game slate. Those are the fantasy baseball waiver wire pickups I’m going to be keying in on the most right now. Let’s get into it. Here are my top fantasy baseball waiver wire pickups of Week 10.

Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Assistant Analyze Moves Who To Pick Up

Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Pickups (Week 10)

Catcher

David Fry (C/OF/1B/DH – CLE)

CBS: 48% | Yahoo: 62% | ESPN: 21%

There will never be a time this season to be more excited about David Fry than this week. He’s set to have a six-game week where he goes on the road to Colorado for three games and then faces Washington at home for three. Not only that he faces four lefties as well who he absolutely crushes. I’ve been on the fence about Fry in the past due to his erratic playing time, I’m no longer on that fence. Add Fry in all leagues this week and enjoy the boost in production.

Patrick Bailey (C – SFG)

CBS: 19% | Yahoo: 6% | ESPN: 2%

While I have yet to put him on the list of waiver wire adds this season, Bailey has done everything I needed to see up to this point to be worthy of being here. Especially as of late. He’s one of the best catchers in baseball in terms of average, and he’s now putting up the counting stats to match. In his last 17 games, Bailey has driven in 14 with seven XBH. He’s making both quality and quantity contact and is hitting in the heart of that potent Giants offense. He may not be this good for long so play him now while he’s on a hot streak.

Middle Infield

Jorge Mateo (2B/SS – BAL)

CBS: 18% | Yahoo: 6% | ESPN: 2%

Jorge is someone who’s been here before, and as long as he keeps getting overlooked he’ll likely be here again. He’s not a big power guy, but he’s got enough giddy up to get into a ball here and there. He also just so happened to be one of the best base stealers in all of baseball. Now I don’t necessarily like Mateo in a points league, but it’s hard to beat his production in roto right now. Especially when he puts up games like he did the other day walking twice, hitting a home run, driving in three runs, scoring two, and stealing two bases. He’s one of the few readily available middle infield guys who can do it all. Add him while he’s still getting the playing time.

Masyn Winn (SS – STL)

CBS: 36% | Yahoo: 15% | ESPN: 6%

I just had Jeff Erickson on my podcast last thursday and he described Winn as the perfect post hype sleeper. He was up for a cup of coffee in 2023 and his hit tool never emerged. This season it has and he’s looking like the player we hoped he could be. He will likely always be a glove first player, but he’s really rounding in to form as a high contact doubles hitter with enough power to make it interesting. Winn has multiple hits in three of his last four, and at least one hit in his last 15 games. He has a double in each of his last four games. And he has seven RBI in his last six games. Winn is contributing everywhere right now and should continue that success this week and beyond.

Corner Infield

Edmundo Sosa (3B/SS – PHI)

CBS: 7% | Yahoo: 8% | ESPN: 2%

Since Trea Turner went on the IL with that weird hamstring injury, Sosa has come in and absolutely balled out. Especially in these last few games. When looking for someone to target on the waiver wire who can help you now, recent success is a good indicator and boy has he done that. He’s flashed the power with eight XBH in his last 14 games. He’s also driven in eight and scored 13. And he’s done it all with a career best 11% barrel rate and 44.4% hard hit rate. He’s probably producing better than he should, but when a player is this hot its on you to take advantage of it while you can. He’s here for a good time not a long time and that good time is best spent on your roster.

Jose Miranda (3B – MIN)

CBS: 8% | Yahoo: 2% | ESPN: 1%

Man I really wanted Miranda to be good. He gives me “I’m going to leave you disappointed” vibes in the long run since he can never seem to fully put it together, but in the short term I like the move. He’s on a 14 game stretch where he’s looking like 2022 Jose Miranda. The one who excelled at hitting doubles and driving in runs while all but refusing to strikeout. He makes a great points league option with the limited strikeouts, but his five XBH and 10 runs scored in that timeframe point to someone who’s going to help you in roto leagues as well. The good version of Miranda is here.

Outfield

JJ Bleday (OF – OAK)

CBS: 25% | Yahoo: 13% | 7%

JJ has been very inconsistent in his career, but he’s proven that when he gets hot he gets HOT. We seem to be in the midst of one of those hot stretches. He already has 25 XBH in just 53 games so far this year. Three of which were home runs he just hit in back to back to back games. He’s making great zone contact at 81.6% and he’s pulling flyballs at 11.6% which is well above league average. As long as he continues to do those two things he should continue to see this spike in his XBH numbers. He’s cheap now, add him now before that changes.

Jake Meyers (OF – HOU)

CBS: 16% | Yahoo: 14% | ESPN: 4%

First of all, love his last name. With the amount of people who regularly add an “s” to my last name me and Jake may as well be brothers. Unlike me, though, Meyers may as well also be the Astros starting centerfielder for the rest of the season. He started to get the majority of his playing time because of the McCormick injury but he’s played so well that even with Chas back he’s still in the lineup everyday. He’s found his power stroke as of late with three home runs in his last seven games. He’s also found a way to pull a 2023 Ronald Acuna Jr.and cut his strikeout rate down by almost 10% compared to last season. He makes a great addition in five outfield leagues.

Pitching

Ryan Weathers (SP – MIA)

CBS: 29% | Yahoo: 12% | ESPN: 5%

As I write this, Weathers currently has a quality start in four straight appearances. If that changes today, Sunday, than I’m sorry but as of right now he’s too hot to not roster. He’s added some velo to his fastball this year which has played well. It averages 96 MPH with 13 inches of arm side run. He’s also upped his sinker usage to give him a solid option against righties. He’s doing a lot of things right and now faces an average at best Arizona Diamondbacks lineup followed by a Texas Rangers team who has just a .646 OPS against lefties this season. There is a path to legitimate continued success for Weathers. Miami does a great job developing pitching and Weathers seems like the newest guy to be added to that list.
