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.

Robert Gsellman, RP, New York Mets
The Mets traded their closer this week, opening the door for a lot of of potential ninth inning candidates, but Gsellman appears to be the front-runner, as he's come out in high-leverage situations for the Mets. However, despite cheap saves, owners should think long and hard before entrusting a Mets reliever for saves.

Brad Brach, RP, Baltimore Orioles
Much like Gsellman, Brach finds himself as the default closer for an awful team, as Zach Britton was traded to the Yankees. Brach, 32, has 11 saves this season, but plays for a team that could be 50 games out of first place by August. Regardless, if you're scavenging for saves, Brach is the pitcher to get.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr., INF, Toronto Blue Jays
Since his recall in the beginning of July, Gurriel is hitting .393/.414/.554 with 8 straight multiple-hit games. He's not a household name right now, but will offer fantasy owners some on-base help (as long as he continues to hit). Additionally, Gurriel has multiple infield position eligibility.
