Fantasy Baseball Update 9/10/15: Key Matchups This Weekend
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
September 10, 2015
It’s Thursday, which means it’s time once again for us fantasy baseball owners to look forward to the weekend matchups around the MLB. We’ve got a few up-and-coming waiver wire adds for you this morning, so let’s check out the numbers and see if anyone’s right for your team in the next few days.
Bartolo Colon, SP, New York Mets: Every time Colon’s turn comes up in the rotation, he’s a hot waiver wire pickup. That said, he’s still owned in just over half of the fantasy leagues out there.
Colon is coming off a complete-game shutout in Miami and hasn’t allowed an earned run in his last three appearances. He’ll get the call once again this evening in Atlanta. Grab him if you can.

Jorge De La Rosa, SP, Colorado Rockies: Before we leave the hill today, let’s check out De La Rosa. He posted a nice one in his last appearance, allowing six hits over seven innings with one earned.
De La Rosa is 2-0 in his last two games, allowing just the one earned run on 10 hits in that span. He’ll be in San Diego for the Padres this afternoon.
Mark Canha, 1B/OF, Oakland Athletics: Canha has experienced a surge in recent days, leading to a lot of fantasy attention. Heading into yesterday’s finale, he had nine hits in five games, with six runs, three homers and six RBI in that frame. He kept it going with a hit and a steal yesterday.
Canha has produced some very good fantasy numbers this year, considering his level. He and the A’s will be in Texas starting tomorrow for the Rangers.
Domingo Santana, OF, Milwaukee Brewers: Santana has been on a nice run as well, logging three hits, two runs, a homer and three RBI in the first two Marlins games. He came up empty yesterday, though.
Santana has been on fire since joining the Brewers, and will lock up the centerfield gig for 2016 if he keeps it up. He’ll be in Pittsburgh facing off against the Pirates starting today.
Odubel Herrera, 2B/SS/OF, Philadelphia Phillies: Let’s finish up with Herrera, who gained some attention with a big three-run homer against the Braves on Tuesday. It was his second homer in a five-game span. He posted an 0-fer yesterday, though.
Herrera has had a nice September so far, pushing his RBI total for the year into the 40s. He’ll get the incoming Cubs at home starting today.
