Each week Baseball Press will be providing some Under the Radar fantasy players for NL-Only Leagues, AL-Only Leagues and Mixed Leagues.
These articles will be dedicated to finding those diamonds in the rough on the waiver wire that will either be a short term or long term replacement to an injury or struggling player on your fantasy team.
It is quite possible that some names will be added to this list once Saturday afternoon comes and goes but these are the guys to roll with at the current time. Make sure you keep your eyes on the transaction line to make sure if a gem switches leagues that you are able to pick him up if you have a hole to fill.
Rick Ankiel - OF, Kansas City Royals (Yahoo! 4%, CBS 13%)
With the injury of David DeJesus , Ankiel is all but guaranteed playing time in the Kansas City outfield. Since coming off the DL himself he has gone 5-17 with a home run. While on his rehab he hit .294 with 3 home runs in 34 at-bats. He is a great option as an upside look for the rest of the season as long as he stays healthy. He could have a ceiling of a .280 hitter with 8 home runs and 6 stolen bases for the remainder of the season.
