Fantasy Baseball Update 5/30/16: Key Matchups Early This Week
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
May 30, 2016
In the world of fantasy baseball, Monday means it’s a great time to start looking forward to the big early-week matchups around the MLB. We’ve got a fresh list of trending players off the waiver wire for you this morning, so let’s take a closer look at the numbers.
CC Sabathia, SP, New York Yankees: There was a time when Sabathia was the first fantasy pitcher off the board. Nowadays you can find him on the waiver wire, and he’s giving some nice value lately.
Sabathia posted seven innings against a solid Toronto offense in his last outing, and he’ll be going against the Jays again tomorrow. He’s an awesome lower-end pickup for that one and the rest of the year, really.

Adam Duvall, OF, Cincinnati Reds: Duvall has been on quite a nice roll over the past few games. He’s got a three-game hit streak to his credit, with five hits, four runs, two homers and seven RBI in that span.
Duvall holds a .267 BA with 11 homers and 26 RBI. That’s awesome value for a guy available in over 70 percent of fantasy leagues.
Eduardo Rodriguez, SP, Boston Red Sox: It looks like we’ll be seeing Rodriguez tomorrow in his season debut against Baltimore.
Rodriguez is coming off the DL thanks to a knee issue, and should be able to hit the ground running once he gets back to the bigs. With a hot Boston offense behind him, there’s no reason to ignore him in fantasy.
Sean Doolittle, RP, Oakland Athletics: Here’s an interesting pickup if you’re in need of saves. Doolittle posted his third save of the year yesterday against Detroit, striking out one in a clean inning.
The solid effort may get Doolittle some additional looks in save situations, so he’s a good speculation pickup. Too bad the A’s aren’t winning many games lately.
Matt Adams, 1B, St. Louis Cardinals: Let’s finish up with Adams at first base and see what the fuss is with him. Over his last six games, he’s put up three runs, two homers, seven RBI and eight hits.
That gives Adams a .320 average with 24 RBI and six homers. He’ll be in Milwaukee to start their series against the Brewers today.
