Fantasy Baseball 2015: Weekend Sleepers 7/10
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
July 10, 2015
It’s Friday, and that means it’s time once again for us to check out the weekend’s sleeper prospects in the world of fantasy baseball. Let’s take a closer look at the numbers and see if there’s anyone you need to add to your roster.
Jarrod Dyson, OF, Kansas City Royals: Dyson has hit the top of the waiver wire charts late this week, what with Alex Gordon gone. Heading into yesterday’s action, he had two hits in two games with a homer, four runs, two RBI and a steal. He had two hits and a swipe yesterday.
Dyson is quite the speedster and is getting a lot more playing time now. He should be pouring in the fantasy points.

Erasmo Ramirez, SP/RP, Tampa Bay Rays: Now let’s head to the hill and check out Ramirez, who is a nice pickup for today’s start. He’s coming off a six-inning, one-earned win against the Yankees, yielding three hits in all.
Ramirez has a 3.80 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP this year, and he’ll put it on the line in today’s start against the Astros at home.
Gerardo Parra, OF, Milwaukee Brewers: Parra’s lengthy multi-hit streak came to an end this week, but he got right back on the horse in the Atlanta finale. On the season, he’s hitting .309 with 26 RBI.
With the hot-hitting Parra sitting firmly on the trade block, he’s likely to check out of Milwaukee soon. If he goes somewhere good, he could see another up-tick in numbers.
Kendall Graveman, SP/RP, Oakland Athletics: Back to the mound for a moment; let’s check out Graveman. He’s coming off a win against the Mariners, logging seven innings of shutout ball on five hits.
Graveman will be in Cleveland today, putting his 3.16 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the line. He’s a good-looking start.
Nick Castellanos, 3B, Detroit Tigers: Let’s go over to the hot corner and visit with Castellanos, who took a nice nine-game hit streak into action yesterday. In that time, he had two homers, 10 RBI and six runs in that span. He came up empty yesterday, though.
Castellanos has been heating up in the power game late this week. Let’s see if he can keep it up in Minnesota this weekend.
