Fantasy Baseball Update 7/2/15: Key Matchups This Weekend
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
July 2, 2015
Thursday means it’s time for us fantasy baseball owners to start looking forward to the big weekend matchups around the MLB. There’s a lot of information to take in out there, so with that in mind let’s check out the waiver wire and see which guys are hot adds heading into the weekend series.
Mike Montgomery, SP, Seattle Mariners: Let’s start things out on the mound today with Montgomery, who has been the most-added pitcher in fantasy over the past couple of days. He’s got two straight complete-game shutouts to his credit, allowing just six hits combined in those.
Montgomery has a stellar 1.62 ERA and 0.90 WHIP to his credit, and will take those great marks into Oakland on Sunday.

Mitch Moreland, 1B, Texas Rangers: We’ve talked about Moreland once or twice this week already, and heading into the weekend it’s time we looked at him again. In the first two games of the Baltimore series, he logged four homers and seven RBI. He came up empty yesterday, though.
Moreland needs to be owned in every fantasy league right now. He’s been on a tear and will try to keep it going against the Angels this weekend.
Cesar Hernandez, 2B/3B/SS, Philadelphia Phillies: Speaking of guys we’ve talked about already this week, here’s Hernandez. In a four-game span this week he logged three runs, an RBI and a whopping six steals. He had another hit, two runs and an RBI yesterday.
Hernandez is impressing the brass in Philly quite a bit lately. It’ll be interesting to see what they do with him when Chase Utley gets better. The team heads to Atlanta tomorrow.
Randal Grichuk, OF, St. Louis Cardinals: Grichuk has put together a nice run this week. In five games he logged seven hits, four runs, a solo homer, three RBI and a steal. He whiffed yesterday, though.
Grichuk is inching toward double-digit homers and has proven himself nicely in the absence of Matt Holliday. He gets San Diego at home this weekend.
Torii Hunter, OF, Minnesota Twins: Hunter got a well-deserved breather from the starting lineup yesterday in the Reds finale. In four games prior, he racked up eight hits, seven runs, four homers and five RBI.
Hunter is putting up stellar numbers these days and is a must-have guy in fantasy right now. He’ll be in KC for the Royals starting today.
