Tyson Ross, SP
The 30-year-old right-hander made his season debut with the Rangers and pitched well, going 5.2 innings, allowing two runs on just two hits while striking out five and picking up the win. Ross is a former All-Star who has been somewhat forgotten about, since he only pitched in one game last season. Now that he’s healthy, he’s a low-risk option for teams seeking another pitcher.
Cam Bedrosian, RP
After starting off the year striking out nine batters while allowing no walks or runs in his first five appearances, Bedrosian hit the DL in late April. He’s finally recovered fully and is back with the big league club. In his first appearance back, Cam struck out a batter in a scoreless inning. Right before he was injured, he was pegged the Angels’ new closer, but in his absence, Bud Norris took over and filled in marvelously. Bedrosian won’t be placed back in that role immediately, but he will have plenty of high leverage opportunities, and will likely be first in line if Norris experiences any troubles.
Wilson Ramos, C
Although he hasn’t played in any games yet in 2017, Ramos could end up being one of the best waiver wire steals of the year. He’s been rehabbing an ACL injury all year, but is set to join the Rays big league club this week. Ramos was a National League All-Star and Silver Slugger as a backstop for the Nationals last season, hitting .307/.354/.496 with 22 home runs and 80 RBI. Ramos has a chance to make an immediate fantasy impact, as his bat has looked up to speed during his rehab, and in a league where catching is a premium, Ramos could be the answer for many fantasy owners
Lonnie Chisenhall, OF
The Indians outfielder has three multi-hit games and three home runs in his last four games. To go along with this, he’s driven in 11 runs in that span as well. Chisenhall hasn’t always found his way into the lineup this season, but has batted .279 with 10 home runs, 35 RBI and 21 runs scored along with a .923 OPS. With his recent hot stretch and solid season numbers, Terry Francona may play Chisenhall more regularly.
