Daily Fantasy MLB 6/13/14: Matchup Plays and Value Picks
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
June 13, 2014
We’re transitioning into the big weekend series in the MLB, which means this is prime time for fantasy baseball owners. That said, let’s take our daily look at some of the up-and-coming players out there who could give your team a lift over the next few days (and beyond).
Kendrys Morales, 1B, Minnesota Twins: Morales has caused quite the stir since coming onto the scene this past week. He’s once again near the top of everyone’s waiver wire radar, thanks to a nice initial hitting streak. In the Toronto series, he posted three hits, two runs and three RBI.
Morales should be able to remain productive, as long as he can stay healthy and all that fun stuff. Getting solid names at the corners has become a priority in the fantasy community, so he’s definitely a consideration here.

Danny Santana, 2B/SS/OF, Minnesota Twins: Let’s stick in Minnesota and check out
Santana, who is no stranger to this space lately. In the Toronto series, he put up six hits, four runs, a homer and two RBI to reach a seven-game hit streak.
There’s not much to fault with Santana right now, and as long as he keeps playing well, he’ll keep getting the starts in centerfield. His versatility only serves to increase his fantasy appeal.
Bartolo Colon, SP, New York Mets: Colon has made quite the fantasy stir recently, thanks to a string of solid performances. In his last four outings, he’s 3-0 with a combined five earned runs. He posted a no-decision against San Francisco (one earned) in his most recent appearance.
Colon draws a favorable start today at home against the visiting Padres. He’ll likely improve on his 4.31 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in the coming hours.
Chase Anderson, SP/RP, Arizona Diamondbacks: We covered Anderson a little bit yesterday, and it’s time to return to that well once more since his impending start in L.A. against the Dodgers is close at hand.
The initial returns on Anderson have been very good. He’s 5-0 in five starts and is coming off a seven-inning, two-earned, eight-strikeout effort against Atlanta. The Dodgers will offer a tougher challenge today, but we’ll see what he’s made of.
Corey Dickerson, OF, Colorado Rockies: Another frequent subject of this space is Dickerson, who has been playing very well as of late. Heading into yesterday’s game, he had a four-game hit streak going, with three runs, a homer, six RBI and a steal in that span. He had two more hits and a run yesterday.
Dickerson makes a lot of sense as a depth add out there in the outfield right now. He’ll post some decent power numbers for his level and will even bag a steal here and there. He’ll also be better at home, obviously, but hey.
