Mid-Week Waiver Wire Rankings - Fantasy Baseball Pickups Include Royce Lewis, Zach McKinstry, Michael Kopech, Jake McCarthy

Jake McCarthy - Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Draft Sleepers, Waiver Wire Pickups

RotoBallers welcome back to our mid-week fantasy baseball waiver wire rankings for Week 11 - June 5th through June 11th - to help you stay on top of the waiver wire, especially in leagues that allow daily moves. May is in the books, and more top prospects are being called up to the big leagues. Minnesota Twins shortstop Royce Lewis, Los Angeles Angels right-hander Ben Joyce, and Atlanta Braves pitcher A.J. Smith-Shawver were promoted to the majors. Since being called up on May 29th, Lewis is hitting .333 (3-for-9) with a home run, four RBI, and two runs across two games.

Fantasy managers might have some injured stars return soon, such as New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) and third baseman Josh Donaldson (hamstring), who will return to action Friday. Minnesota Twins second baseman Jorge Polanco (hamstring) will come off the injured list on Thursday. Boston Red Sox outfielder Adam Duvall (wrist) can return from the injured list on June 9th. Chicago White Sox reliever Liam Hendriks (illness) struck out cancer and made his season debut on Monday. The ball is flying out of the yard as offenses are heating up. We are here to help sort it all out with our latest waiver wire rankings article.

This week's waiver wire rankings feature players such as Spencer Steer, Matt McLain, Jose Siri, Jake McCarthy, Michael Kopech, Mitch Haniger, Bryan De La Cruz, Mark Leiter Jr., Royce Lewis, Seth Brown, Zach McKinstry, Kyle Hendricks, Miguel Castro, Edward Cabrera, and Francisco Alvarez rank early, among others. Read more to see where these players rank in the early waiver wire rankings for Week 11.

Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Pickups List

For anyone who isn't familiar, every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, we release all sorts of fantasy baseball waiver wire articles. As part of that, Nick Mariano releases our waiver wire rankings list on Sundays to help you prioritize which players to target as free agent adds off waivers.

In addition to that, we are also putting out a second waiver wire rankings list mid-week. Since many fantasy baseball leagues have daily waiver wire moves or multiple waiver wire runs per week for adding players, this mid-week rankings list should help you keep track of players emerging in the middle of the week before we reach Sunday.

Below you will see our list of waiver wire pickups in our prioritized order. There should be waiver wire recommendations here for all sorts of league sizes, along with the position(s) for the player and the rostered percentages.
