Daily Fantasy MLB 6/10/14: Matchup Plays and Value Picks
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
June 10, 2014
It’s easy for fantasy owners to get bogged down amid the early-week series around the MLB, but there are still plenty of opportunities out there if you want to steer your team in the right direction. Here’s our daily look at some of the trending players out there who could potentially offer your team a hand in today’s games and beyond.
Danny Santana, 2B/SS/OF, Minnesota Twins: Santana is one of the hotter names on the waiver wire right now, and has been for the past few days. Heading into the Toronto series, he had a four-game hit streak going with seven RBI and a homer in that span. He logged a solo homer yesterday as well.
Santana’s positional eligibility should get your attention right off the bat. He plays a couple of tough spots and could offer a real value to those hurting for middle infielders. At least kick the tires here.

Brock Holt, 1B/3B, Boston Red Sox: This isn’t the first time we’ve featured Holt in this space, and it probably won’t be the last. He came into the Baltimore series with an eight-game hit streak in tow, logging six runs, a homer and six RBI in that frame. He managed another hit yesterday.
We’re not sure where Holt’s ceiling really is, but this is probably pretty close to it. While he’s hitting, he’s definitely worth grabbing in fantasy, especially considering the fact that corner men are getting harder and harder to come by these days.
Lonnie Chisenhall, 1B/3B, Cleveland Indians: Speaking of corner men, Chisenhall’s a good one if you’re in need (and if he’s still available in your league). Heading into the finale in Texas he had a six-game hit streak going, with three multi-hit games, four runs, a homer and seven RBI in that span. He topped himself with a 5-for-5 performance in that one, including three homers and a whopping nine RBI.
There’s not a whole lot to dislike about Chisenhall right now. He’s giving up numbers in just about every fantasy category. His road trip continues this week in KC and Boston, so give him a look before then.
Tanner Roark, SP/RP, Washington Nationals: Roark doesn’t pitch until tomorrow, but it’s time you got on that bandwagon anyway. In his last outing, he posted a win in eight innings of work against the Padres, allowing just three hits, no walks and striking out 11 batters.
Roark is rocking a 2.91 ERA with a 1.05 WHIP right now, which is downright stellar for a pitcher of his fantasy level. He’ll be on the mound again tomorrow against the Giants on the road, so check him out.
Chase Anderson, SP/RP, Arizona Diamondbacks: Speaking of hot hands, Anderson definitely fits that bill. In his most recent two starts, he’s 2-0 in 13 innings of work, allowing just three combined runs and nine combined hits.
That’s five straight wins for Anderson, who is just on fire at the moment. He’ll take his 3.14 ERA and 1.15 WHIP into L.A. to face the Dodgers, which will be a relatively tough assignment, but still one worth checking into.
