Our Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Pickups article takes a look at players available in many leagues that could have an immediate impact on your fantasy roster, or simply just players to keep on your radar. Let’s take a look at some players that might be worth scooping off the waiver wire heading into Week 10 of the MLB season. If you have any questions on who to pick up or who to drop, feel free to post them in our Fantasy Baseball Forum.

Add in All Leagues

Yasmani Grandal SD | C

We were a big fan of Grandal heading into the season, but then the 50 game suspension got in the way. He has since returned from his suspension and I think he is worth an add in all leagues. He was great in limited time last year and this young catcher has a ton of talent. (about 15% owned)

Domonic Brown PHI | OF

It’s always surprising to me when a young star starts to break out but the fantasy world doesn’t take notice. Brown was a guy with a decent amount of hype around him over the last couple of years and he finally starting to break out and only half of all leagues have picked him up. He already has 21 extra base hits on this young season and he needs to be owned in all leagues at this point. (about 50% owned)

Mark Teixeira NYY | 1B

The wait is about to be over and it looks like Teixeira will be back within the next couple of days. He had an off year in 2012, but there is certainly the potential for a bounce back. I am not expecting huge things from him this year, but you can almost guarantee that the power numbers will be there if he can stay healthy. (about 75% owned)

Francisco Liriano PIT | SP

Liriano was a little roughed up by the Tigers in his last start, but I still think he is a must add in all leagues. He still has huge strikeout potential, and when he can throw his slider for a strike he is pretty much unstoppable. I am a little bias since I have always been a Liriano fan, but if you have ever watched him pitch when is stuff is working then you understand why I like him so much. (about 65% owned)

Kendrys Morales SEA | 1B

It doesn’t make sense to me why Morales is still only owned in about half of all leagues. He has a proven track record and he is off to a solid start this year. Morales is still only 30 years old and I think there is certainly a chance that he could get close to his numbers from ’09. He already has 22 extra base hits so far this year and he is batting just under .300. For some reason Morales isn’t getting much love in the fantasy world, but personally I don’t see what the problem is. (about 55% owned)

Add in Deeper Leagues

Darren O’Day BAL | RP

O’Day has pitched great so far this year and I think there is a chance that he might take over the closer role at some point. Johnson is having a terrible year and even though he has managed to get 16 saves already, he currently has an ERA of 5. If Johnson doesn’t turn things around quickly then I expect a swap will happen in Baltimore. (about 15% owned)

Michael Wacha STL | SP

Wacha is certainly a great young pitcher, but I do have some concerns with him. He has a lot of talent, but I am worried about his lack of Ks that he has had in the minors. Some pitchers have been able to be productive fantasy pitchers without striking out a ton of batters, but most of the time you want to see at least a K per inning. In 52 innings pitched so far in the minors this year he only has 34 strikeouts. Don’t get me wrong I think Wacha is well worth an add in most leagues, but I wouldn’t call him a must add in all leagues until he shows me something in the bigs. (about 45% owned)

Yonder Alonso SD | 1B

Alonso has already almost matched his home run totals from a year ago and I am still a big fan of his overall upside. He is only 25 years old and I really like the potential for a breakout year for this former first rounder. I think he will continue to improve upon his power stroke and I am expecting him to have a solid second half of the season. (about 25% owned)

Alexi Amarista SD | 2B/SS/OF

This youngster from Venezuela is starting to make some noise and his position eligibility makes him an interesting utility guy for any fantasy team. He as second, third, and outfield eligibility in most leagues and I think Amarista makes a great guy to stash on your bench to ensure depth in your middle infield. He currently doesn’t have an every day job locked up, but the Padres have been creative with finding ways for him to get onto the field. Even though he isn’t an every day player he already has 102 at bats and he has 12 extra base hits. (about 5% owned)

Keep an eye on

Vinnie Pestano CLE | RP

Pestano is more than likely going to get the save opportunities for the Indians while Perez is out and he has a chance to take over that job in my opinion. Perez hasn’t been playing that great this year and if Pestano pitches well he could get to hold onto the closer role. Pestano hasn’t been impressive this year, but he is coming off of two straight solid seasons and he certainly has the potential to be a solid big league closer. (about 35% owned)
