Fantasy baseball waiver wire adds for Week 6 of the MLB season

We go over some players you should look to pick up on the fantasy baseball waiver wire heading into the Week of May 3.

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Boston Red Sox David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

A new week has dawned across Major League Baseball and it’s time to decide who to add to your fantasy team to fill some holes for the next week.

We’ll tell you who we think is a solid pickup on the waiver wire that you can look for some solid production out of this week.

Enrique Hernandez, Boston Red Sox

ESPN ownership: 45.2%

Hernandez likely won’t be a guy you’ll want to keep on your squad long term. He’s hitting just .231 this season with nine RBIs. But the Red Sox face a fortuitous schedule in the next few days, facing off with the Detroit Tigers and the Baltimore Orioles this week, two of the worst team’s in baseball.

Luis Arraez, Minnesota Twins

ESPN ownership: 65.1%

The Minnesota Twins have entered a bit of a free fall, but they have a chance to get back on track this week when they open up a slate of games with the Texas Rangers. Arraez is hitting .289 this season and has a solid .773 OPS. He got three hits in his most recent game and has hit in the leadoff spot every time the Twins have taken on a right-handed starting pitcher this season, so he’ll have more at-bats to do damage.

Andrew Knizner, St. Louis Cardinals

ESPN ownership: 2.3%

Knizer isn’t a name you’d normally see on here, but with legendary catcher Yadier Molina on the injured list, Knizner will be getting a ton of playing time. He’s averaging a hit and a run per game over his last six appearances. So if you’re in need of a catcher, he’s a decent option in a pinch.
