Fantasy Baseball 2015: Waiver Wire Update 7/21
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
July 21, 2015
It’s Tuesday, and around here that means it’s time once again to visit with the waiver wire in the world of fantasy baseball. There are lots of interesting players currently trending right now, so let’s take a closer look and see if there’s anybody worth your while out there.
Jonathan Schoop, 2B/3B, Baltimore Orioles: Schoop has shot up the waiver wire charts over the past few days, and for good reason. He’s sitting on a five-game hit streak, and logged six hits, two runs, a homer and four RBI against Detroit this weekend.
Schoop owns a .305 average with six homers and 14 RBI so far. He’s been a dynamo since coming off the DL. He’ll go into New York to face the Yanks this week.

Randal Grichuk, OF, St. Louis Cardinals: It’s a little surprising that Grichuk isn’t owned in more fantasy leagues. He’s been fairly reliable as of late, and logged four hits with two homers and six RBI in the last two games of the Mets series this weekend.
Grichuk has a .281 BA with nine homers and 32 RBI so far. He should continue to get regular looks in the outfield, starting this week in Chicago against the White Sox.
Kyle Schwarber, C/OF, Chicago Cubs: Lots of people like Schwarber, and for good reason. His biggest recent breakout came last week in Atlanta, when he managed three hits with a run against the Braves. He logged a hit and a run yesterday.
Schwarber should get a couple more starts in this current Cincinnati series. The teams play today and in a doubleheader tomorrow.
Kyle Gibson, SP, Minnesota Twins: Gibson has been on a roll lately. After dropping three straight games last months, he’s won his last four, allowing no more than two earned or six hits in any one start.
Gibson has eight wins with a 2.85 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. If you’re looking for a quality arm, snag him up before he takes on the Angels in L.A. today.
Taylor Jungmann, SP, Milwaukee Brewers: Jungmann caused a waiver wire frenzy yesterday coming off his last start, which was a seven-inning, one-earned win against Pittsburgh.
Jungmann is now 3-0 in his last three, allowing just one earned in each start and going nine innings back in L.A. in the Dodgers game. He’ll toss again this weekend against Arizona, so grab him before then.
