Fantasy Baseball 2012: Top 12 Waiver-Wire Pickups for Week 20

The following slideshow touts the top 12 waiver-wire pickups right now, recognizing the best free agents from the majority of 12-team roto leagues.

For the most part, this list rewards players who have already fostered productive starts to the 2012 season.

Savvy readers will notice the rankings are different from last week's offering. These changes can be attributed to the waiver-wire graduations of Starling Marte, Scott Feldman, Michael McKenry, Ross Detwiler, Joe Blanton and Lorenzo Cain—forgotten (or largely ignored) assets on draft day, but now contributing pieces with their current teams.

That's how it should be with this countdown: Here today, gone tomorrow.

Enjoy the show!
