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.
Jeremy Jeffress, RP, Milwaukee Brewers
After having one of the stronger bullpens in the big-leagues, the Brewers will likely remove Corey Knebel from the ninth inning role. With Josh Hader being more of a multiple-innings pitcher, Jeffress could see an uptick in save opportunities.
Despite being labeled as a platoon player, Dahl is the outfielder of the future for the Rockies. He can play multiple outfield positions and hits behind Nolan Arenado
at times. He's hitting .255/.340/.447 since August 1st and is a nice addition to any team.
Kendrys Morales, DH, Toronto Blue Jays
Morales has homered in four straight games and is hitting .266/.338/.547 with 6 home runs and 12 RBI for the month of August. After a slow start to the season (including the beginning of August) - Morales has turned it around. Historically, Morales has put up better numbers in the second half of play, hitting .270/.336/.472 after the All Star break.
Another Nats reliever makes it to the Grinding Metal, as Herrera is this week's contestant on "Who will close for the Nats?". Herrera returns from an injury, bumping everyone back an inning, and will likely hold down the ninth innings until Sean Doolittle
returns. Herrera has plenty of closing experience, as he was the closer for the Royals upon his trade to the Nationals.
