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.

Willy Adames, SS, Milwaukee Brewers
Since joining the Brewers via trade from the Rays during the month of May, Adames has hit .280/.362/.523 with 7 home runs and 28 RBI. Adames has found his power stroke and routinely hits near the top of the order for the Brewers. He has three home runs over his past six games.

Jake Odorizzi, SP, Houston Astros
The veteran right hander has come on strong the last few starts, posting multiple shutout innings. However, Odorizzi has not pitched into the sixth inning since April, but he's still logging around 5 innings over each start. He figures to line up next against the Cleveland Indians on the road.

Kyle Muller, SP, Atlanta Braves
Muller cruised through his last outing against the Reds, striking out 9 hitters and allowing one hit. He's been posting big strikeout numbers (13) over his the last three starts along with a 2.70 ERA. His next start should likely come against the Marlins over the weekend.
