Fantasy Baseball 2015: Waiver Wire Update 7/7
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
July 7, 2015
Around here, Tuesdays mean it’s time to check out the fantasy baseball waiver wire and see who’s trending out there. We’ve got a fresh crop of interesting candidates for your perusal today, so let’s visit the numbers and see who might make a nice add for your team.
Brett Anderson, SP, Los Angeles Dodgers: Let’s start things out on the hill today and visit with Anderson, who has been on quite a run lately. He’s coming off a seven-inning, one-earned win in Arizona that yielded seven strikeouts.
Anderson has allowed exactly one earned in each of his last three starts and hasn’t recorded a loss since June 5. He’s at home against Philly today.

Andrew Heaney, SP, Los Angeles Angels: Heaney is getting added over the past few days thanks to a couple of good starts. In his first, he yielded one run over six innings for a no-decision, and in his most recent he logged seven innings of one-earned ball in a win.
Heaney is looking pretty good as a fantasy add right now, so don’t hesitate to add him if you need him. He will be in Colorado today, though. Keep that in mind.
Aramis Ramirez, 3B, Milwaukee Brewers: Those owners needing help at the hot corner could do worse than Ramirez, who was scorching in the team’s recent road trip. He hit in all seven games, providing four runs and 11 RBI. He came up empty yesterday, though.
Ramirez has been key in the Brewers’ recent success, but his overall 2015 numbers still look pretty sketchy aside from the hot streak. He’s home against Atlanta this week, then goes to visit the Dodgers if he’s not traded before then.
Erick Aybar, SS, Los Angeles Dodgers: Aybar had a huge series in Texas against the Rangers, which has put him up on the waiver wire radar. He posted nine hits, six runs and four RBI in those three games.
Overall, Aybar is doing pretty well this season, hitting .280 with 27 RBI and six steals. At a thin position like shortstop, that’s all you can really ask for.
Miguel Sano, 3B/SS, Minnesota Twins: Let’s finish up with another SS option in Sano, who had a nice series in Kansas City. In those four games, he put up six hits, a run and two RBI. He got another hit yesterday to keep it going.
Sano hasn’t been blasting the ball just yet, but that should come in time. The good news is that he seems to be adjusting to the majors just fine.
