Fantasy Baseball 2013 Waiver Wire: Top 10 Pickups for Week 3

The Dodgers' Hyun-Jin Ryu, available in fewer than 10 percent of leagues, is still a top pickup if he's unowned.

After last week's pitcher-heavy top 10 waiver pickups, the bats have battled back to balance things out this time around, with power being a common trait among them.

That doesn't mean that arms are underrepresented, though. In fact, the top two spots belong to a pair of right-handed starters.

Some players mentioned last time, including Kelvin Herrera, Clay Buchholz, Paul Maholm, Jose Fernandez and Jim Henderson, remain quality pickups, so be sure to consider them if they're still out there in free agency. In the interest of keeping the names fresh, though, let's avoid any repeats, mmmkay?

Before we get to the top 10, here are a few players owned in more than 75 percent of ESPN leagues* who weren't on last week's list and are worthy waiver-wire additions if available in your league:

Hyun-Jin Ryu, LHP, Los Angeles Dodgers (percent owned 92.3): Korean import has looked strong his past two starts (five earned runs, nine hits and a 15:3 K:BB in 12.1 innings).

Justin Masterson, RHP, Cleveland Indians (97.8 percent owned): Complete game shutout last time out brought his totals to one run on 10 hits allowed with a 20:8 K:BB in 22 innings.

John Buck, C, New York Mets (96.7 percent owned): NL RBI leader with 19 also hit homers in four straight games last week.

Mark Reynolds, 1B, Cleveland Indians (81.8 percent owned): Grand slam Saturday was already the fifth bomb for this streaky slugger.


*All ownership percentages come from ESPN fantasy baseball, and only players who are available in at least 25 percent of ESPN leagues were eligible to be considered.
