Outfield Waiver Wire Pickups For Fantasy Baseball - Week 11

Jose Siri - Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Draft Sleepers, MLB Prospects

This article will discuss fantasy baseball waiver wire pickups for the outfield in Week 11 – June 5 through June 11. Whether your team is derailed by injuries or you’re simply ready to give up on your draft day darlings, navigating the waiver wire will be crucial to finding long-term success in fantasy baseball. 

As we move through the season, trends fluctuate, and we must learn to react in real-time. When it comes to hot streaks, you have to act fast, or you may miss out. This set of outfield-eligible players may not all have the longest track records, or their success could be considered unsustainable. However, you have to take risks early in the season in order to uncover your breakout stars. It will already be too late if you wait until these names are established. 

Names listed are in order of roster percentage, not confidence ranking. Position eligibility and roster percentage are based on Yahoo!, so check your leagues for availability! 


Outfield Waiver Wire Adds - Standard Leagues

Orlando Arcia, Atlanta Braves - 47% Rostered

Although Arcia operates primarily as a middle infielder for the Braves, he does now carry outfielder eligibility. That positional flexibility makes him an even more intriguing fantasy asset. Arcia also has the production to justify rostering him. He's slashing .312/.368/.464 with four home runs and seven doubles. Arcia hits near the bottom of the order, which somewhat does cap his ceiling. But he's surrounded by talent, opening up greater run-scoring and RBI opportunities. 

Looking under the hood, Arcia's underlying numbers suggest he can continue to produce. He sports a strong .435 xSLG and flaunts above-average marks across the board, like a .270 xBA, .335 xwOBA, 18.4% strikeout rate, and a 44% hard-hit rate. Most of those are career-best marks for the 28-year-old.

Mitch Haniger, San Francisco Giants - 42% Rostered

Haniger remains a great buy-low candidate. He missed the majority of last season and the beginning of 2023 with injury, but we're only two years removed from an outstanding 39-home run campaign in 2021. Haniger is slashing just .239/.268/.398 with four home runs through 31 contests, but the advanced numbers suggest positive regression in his future.

It's worth noting that Haniger is walking at a career-worst 4.1% rate, while his strikeouts are up to a 26.8% rate. His pitch selection hasn't faltered, though, chasing just 24.3% of the time. When Haniger does put the ball in play, the metrics are encouraging. He owns an exciting .469 xSLG, alongside similarly impressive numbers like a .275 xBA, 47.1% hard-hit rate, 91 mph average exit velocity, and a 10.6% barrel rate. The power numbers should start trending upward.

Andrew McCutchen, Pittsburgh Pirates - 38% Rostered

McCutchen is enjoying his best campaign in several years. He boasts a .278/.375/.455 slash line with eight home runs and seven stolen bases. McCutchen's .830 OPS is the best mark he has carried since the 2019 season. At 36 years old, it remains to be seen if McCutchen will find continued success all season. But for now, he's an under-owned fantasy asset. 

While there may be some regression to reckon with, McCutchen's underlying numbers suggest he can continue to produce. He sports a .270 xBA, .360 xwOBA, .443 xSLG, 13.5% walk rate, and 44.1% hard-hit rate. While his MVP days are firmly behind him, this is the best version of McCutchen we've seen in recent years.

Jose Siri, Tampa Bay Rays - 21% Rostered

Siri is on a heater, homering six times over his last 12 games. He has been on and off the injured list in 2023, but the power production when Siri is active is remarkable. He's slashing .245/.299/.585 with 10 home runs through 32 games. The Rays have a crowded rotation of outfielders, which does cut into Siri's opportunities, though there's enough upside to get excited about here.

As a jumping-off point, Siri carries an outstanding .577 xSLG. That includes a .372 xwOBA and a 19.2% barrel rate. He'll strike out plenty, as evidenced by the 30.5% strikeout rate, but the power-hitting is no joke. Siri flashed his slugging ability throughout his minor-league tenure, though poor plate discipline has thus far undermined his MLB results. His approach has matured this season, posting a career-best 33.9% chase rate and 7.6% walk rate, suggesting his game may be taking a step toward sustainability.


Outfield Waiver Wire Adds - Deeper Leagues

Nick Pratto, Kansas City Royals - 9% Rostered

Surprisingly, Pratto's ownership took a slight dip over the past week. The trend doesn't make a lot of sense, considering his continued production and a newly elevated role. Pratto is the Royals' new leadoff hitter, and he looks to be a fixture in that spot. He's been starting there against both right-handed and left-handed pitchers.

Overall, Pratto sports a .292/.394/.442 slash line with three home runs and eight doubles through 33 games played. His advanced numbers are encouraging as well, including a .350 xwOBA, 44.8% hard-hit rate, and 10.4% barrel rate. Pratto exhibited impressive power during his minor league days and may have more still to unlock in that regard. In any event, his current role and production level are greatly outperforming Pratto's modest roster percentage.

Nolan Jones, Colorado Rockies - 6% Rostered

Jones was highlighted here last week in advance of his call-up. Since that time, he has performed well. He carries a .308/.333/.538 slash line through his first eight games, including a home run and three doubles. It was previously unclear whether Jones would stick around for long, but with Kris Bryant landing on the injured list this week, Jones' role looks safe in the short term. 

Prior to his promotion, Jones had absolutely dominated pitching in Triple-A. Through 39 appearances, Jones slashed .356/.481/.711 with 12 home runs, a pair of triples, and 13 doubles. We can't expect that level of production, but Jones does benefit from playing at Coors and figures to have some big games ahead.

Jesus Sanchez, Miami Marlins - 4% Rostered

Following a disappointing 2022 campaign, Sanchez is off to a strong start this season. He's slashing .317/.391/.573 through 33 games. That includes four home runs, nine doubles, and three stolen bases. The surface-level production is there, but his advanced numbers tell us an even bigger breakout might be incoming.

Sanchez carries a phenomenal 160 OPS+. That figure consists of an outstanding .323 xBA, .552 xSLG, .403 xwOBA, 91.1 mph average exit velocity, 49.1% hard-hit rate, and 14.5% barrel rate. His already impressive production is fully supported by his expected statistics. Perhaps playing for Miami is suppressing his roster percentage, but this is an opportune time to scoop up Sanchez before he really starts turning heads.
