Fantasy Baseball 2012: Top 12 Waiver-Wire Pickups for Week 22

In his first start of the season (Aug. 21), Athletics southpaw Brett Anderson stifled the Twins for six strikeouts and one victory, allowing just one run in seven innings.

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 Ryan Roberts, Jeremy Guthrie, Miguel Gonzalez, Trevor Plouffe, Hisashi Iwakuma and Brandon Belt—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!
