TV:

It’s Friday, and around here that means it’s time once again to check out some of the notable sleeper options heading into the fantasy baseball weekend. Let’s take a closer look at the numbers and see if anyone makes sense for your team in the upcoming games.

Taylor Jungmann, SP, Milwaukee Brewers: Jungmann is on a pretty good run right now, and he’s under-owned in most fantasy formats. He’s coming off a loss in Arizona, but only allowed two earned on four hits in that one.
Jungmann hasn’t allowed more than two earned since June 19, and is 4-1 in his last seven appearances. He’ll face the Cubs at home today.

USA TODAY Sports

Matt Wisler, SP, Atlanta Braves: Let’s stick on the mound for a moment and visit with Wisler. He’s coming off a two-earned, seven-hit win in St. Louis, which makes him 4-0 in his last five games.
Wisler hasn’t lost since June 25, and has been getting some good run support in his starts. He gets a pretty matchup today in Philadelphia and should do well.

Aaron Hicks, OF, Minnesota Twins: Hicks has popped onto the fantasy baseball radar over the past two series, where he managed 10 hits, six runs, a homer and eight RBI in just five games. He kept it going yesterday with three hits, two runs, a solo homer and a steal.
Hicks has been pretty darn stellar since coming off the DL early this month and is flashing some nice power/speed potential. The Mariners series continues through the weekend.

Chase Headley, 1B/3B, New York Yankees: It’s kind of hard to believe Headley isn’t owned in more leagues out there. Heading into last night’s game, he had a seven-game hit streak going, with nine runs, a homer and nine RBI in that frame. He extended it with a hit and an RBI yesterday.
Headley has been spitting out RBI with a nice regularity this season, and shows no signs of slowing down on this road trip. He’s on the South Side for the White Sox this weekend.

Didi Gregorius, 2B/SS, New York Yankees: Let’s stick in the Big Apple as we finish up with Gregorius today. Heading into last night’s game, he had a three-appearance hit streak going, with eight hits, four runs, a homer and seven RBI in that span. He logged another hit yesterday.
Gregorius is, of course, a defense-first player. That said, he is capable of some big games here and there. He’s a risk/reward play, but could pay off this weekend.
