Leake is in the middle of a career season and has really picked it up this spring. The righty has a 2.23 ERA over his last four starts to go along with 29 K’s over the last 28.2 innings of work. He has earned his spot in all fantasy formats and will be worth finally adding off the waiver wire.

4. Danny Duffy, Kansas City Royals

Duffy’s 5-8 record isn’t exactly impressive, but his other numbers certainly are. Duffy has a 2.86 ERA to go along with a glimmering 1.12 WHIP. The southpaw is pitching like a veteran this season and he deserves a look in all fantasy formats by now.

3. Tyson Ross, San Diego Padres

After a complete game three-hit shutout, Ross was buzzing around the fantasy world. However, he wasn’t grabbed in as many leagues as you would think. Ross has a staggering 111 strikeouts in 116.2 innings of work to go along with a 2.93 ERA. Ross is one veteran that is finally starting to breakout, so it is about time his ownership percentage reflects his breakout campaign.

2. Taijuan Walker, Seattle Mariners

After weeks of anticipation, Walker has finally made it to the show. He has a 1-1 record with a respectable 3.60 ERA. The youngster may be struggling a bit to find to the strike zone right now, but his stuff has still been absolutely filthy. Walker is a future fantasy All-Star and will be worth adding as soon as possible.

Hahn has put together a solid spring. He has a respectable 4-1 record and his 2.34 ERA is among the best in the NL. At 24 years old, Hahn has a very bright future ahead of him and the right-hander is worth owning in all formats
