Grinding Metal examines potential waiver wire additions that can assist your team during the fantasy baseball season. From home runs to pitching wins, Grinding Metal has you covered. Check out these players for immediate roster help. Here was last week's article. Check back for future editions of Grinding Metal.

Jorge Soler, OF, Kansas City Royals
There are not many bright spots to the Royals' offense this season, but Soler has provided plenty of help in the on-base percentage department. He's hitting .297/.415/.505 with 4 home runs over 123 plate appearances this season, including 19 walks and only 31 strikeouts.

Walker Buehler, SP/RP, Los Angeles Dodgers
Buehler, the organization's top pitching prospect,  will remain in the rotation, as Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu are dealing with injuries. Buehler is 2-0 this season with 19 strikeouts in 16 innings pitched. He's coming off a spectacular performance against the San Diego Padres, in which he threw 6 no-hit innings.

Howie Kendrick, 2B/OF, Washington Nationals
Daniel Murphy has yet to play an inning this season, but Kendrick has filled in nicely. Howie is hitting .283/.315/.475 with 4 home runs and 12 runs scored. He offers infield and outfield eligibility, and should continue to see plenty of playing time.

Nick Kingham, SP, Pittsburgh Pirates
Kingham is 2-0 with 16 strikeouts in 12.1 innings pitched this season. He's struck out at least 7 hitters during each start this season. There's no reason to think the 26-year-old righty won't stick around, especially with the lack of starting pitching the Pirates currently have.
