Our fantasy baseball waiver wire column 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 some of the top waiver wire pickups heading into Week 7 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

Drew Smyly DET | SP

Detroit’s young pitcher made a name for himself with limited innings last year and he is off to a great start so far in 2014. He is right at a strikeout per inning and he has a ton of upside moving forward. It’s surprising that the fantasy world hasn’t taken notice, he is still available in about half of all leagues. (about 50% owned)

Wilson Ramos WAS | C

Ramos has returned from his injury and it’s time to pick him back up. He is easily a top ten fantasy catcher if he can stay healthy and he should pick up right where he left off. At only 26 years old there is a chance that we haven’t seen the ceiling from this solid young catcher. (about 50% owned)

Yasmani Grandal SD | C

I know he got caught using performance enhancing drugs and he has been a bit banged up, but that still doesn’t justify why he is owned in less than 10% of leagues. He is one of the best young catchers in the league and I think the fantasy world needs to stop ignoring him. Look for Grandal to bat for power and potentially a solid average as well. (about 5% owned)

Ernesto Frieri LAA | RP

Frieri is too good of a pitcher to not be the closer for the Angles and even though he has been terrible this year I still like his overall upside. It’s pretty clear that Scoiscia wants to give Frieri every chance to win that closer role back and I think he will do just that. (about 75% owned)

Ian Kennedy SD | SP

It was only a few years ago when Kennedy had a 21 win season and there is certainly the chance of him returning to his previous form. He hasn’t looked that great over the last couple of years, but he is only 29 years old and he should have plenty left in the tank. Kennedy is off to a great start so far this year and you need to snag him before it’s too late. (about 70% owned)

Add in deeper leagues

Corey Kluber CLE | SP

The thing that sticks out most when it comes to Kluber is his strikeout potential. He has over a K per inning so far this year and he has had double digit strikeouts in two of his last three outings. I doubt he will keep up this pace, but I still think he is worth considering purely because of his Ks. (about 60% owned)

Drew Hutchison TOR | SP

When you look at Hutchinson’s numbers so far this year, they aren’t they great. However, in the last 30 days he has 34 strikeouts and only 5 walks. Those numbers certainly peaked my interests and I think he is a young pitcher that is certainly worth adding in deeper leagues. (about 25% owned)

Colby Rasmus TOR | OF

Rasmus has always been a decent outfielder and I think the fantasy world has turned their back on him too early. He has been a guy that a lot of owners have had an eye on for years, but after never living up to expectations it seems that owners have lost patience. At only 27 years old though I say not so fast, there is a good chance that the best is yet to come for Rasmus. (about 50% owned)

Juan Francisco TOR | 1B/3B

Francisco has always been solid when given the playing time, but he has yet to have a full season worth of at bats. I think this could be the year where he gets finally gets a solid amount of plate appearances. He is terrible against left handed pitching though and until he figures that out his overall upside will be somewhat limited. (about 10% owned)

George Springer HOU | OF

After a slow start to his big league career, Springer has started to get things going as of late. He has raised his average about 50 points in the last ten days or so and I wouldn’t be surprised if he continues to raise his average. This kid was a stud in the minors and he has a ton of potential. (about 50% owned)
