Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire: Top 10 Pickups for Week 5
John Minchillo
Sunday night against the Yankees, Angels fireballer Garrett Richards once again looked dominant.

A new week, another batch of waiver-wire additions, just the way you like 'em: hot and fresh out of the oven.

From now until the end of the fantasy season, you'll find a rundown of the top player pickups right here every Monday as you face another week of lineup decisions and roster additions.

Some players mentioned last week—including Martin Perez, Justin Morneau, Nathan Eovaldi, Josh Beckett, Dillon Gee and Mark Melancon—are already owned in many leagues by now, but they remain quality pickups if they're still available.

In the interest of keeping the names new, though, let's avoid any repeats. Here are the top 10 waiver-wire pickups for Week 5.


All ownership percentages come from ESPN Fantasy Baseball. Players owned in more than 50 percent of leagues were not considered.

Statistics come from Baseball Reference and FanGraphs, except where otherwise noted.
