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.
Brandon Drury, 3B/2B, New York Yankees
Drury is back in the big-leagues after dealing with injuries and a crowded Yankees roster. Drury is hitting over .300 in Triple-A and will get an extended look at third base for New York, as rookie Miguel Andujar
is hitting under .200 the last two weeks.
Trumbo, 32, has turned things on as of late, hitting .294/.379/.647 with 5 home runs and 14 RBI over his last 15 games. He'll rack up plenty of strikeouts for fantasy owners, but if he can hit home runs every other game, he's worth an add as a utility spot.
This is probably your last chance to own Peralta, who is now 3-0 with a 1.59 ERA and 35 strikeouts in 22.2 innings pitched. Although he's faced the Pirates and Royals over his last two outings, he's gone at least 6 innings, while striking out at least 7 batters. He'll get the Cincinnati Reds next.
Shane Bieber, SP, Cleveland Indians
Much like Freddy Peralta, the time to pick up Bieber is running out for owners. He's 3-0 with a 2.22 ERA over 4 starts and has struck out 27 hitters in 24.1 innings. He figures to stick around the rotation for the Indians moving forward. Bieber will next face the struggling Kansas City Royals.
