Fantasy Baseball Update 6/4/15: Key Matchups This Weekend
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
June 4, 2015
It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time for us fantasy baseball owners to take a look forward to the big series coming up over the weekend. There are plenty of notable players on the waiver wire who could be coming up big in those games, so let’s take a closer look at the numbers and see who could be right for your squad.
Joey Gallo, 3B, Texas Rangers: If you haven’t heard about Joey Gallo, you’ve been living under a fantasy rock. His much-anticipated debut came Tuesday, when he went 3-for-4 with a homer and four RBI. He bagged another homer of the solo variety yesterday.
Gallo has some great upside for power numbers and is a must-add in fantasy. He’ll bag his share of strikeouts, but he’s definitely in play for this weekend in Kansas City.

Billy Burns, OF, Oakland Athletics: Burns is equally hot in fantasy right now, as he’s been putting up some killer numbers this week. Heading into yesterday’s matchup, he had a five-game multi-hit streak complete with a homer, seven runs, two RBI and two steals. He had a hit and three RBI yesterday.
Burns is quite the speedster and should serve you well if you’re looking for runs, steals and finesse numbers. After finishing up in Detroit, he’ll head to Boston for the Red Sox this weekend.
Clay Buchholz, SP, Boston Red Sox: Speaking of the Red Sox, let’s head over to Fenway and check out Buchholz. He’s coming off a stellar start against the Twins, logging no earned, three hits and eight strikeouts in an eight-inning victory.
Buchholz hasn’t allowed more than two earned since May 10, but has taken a couple of hard-luck losses in that frame. He’ll be pitching the series finale against the A’s this weekend.
Alex Guerrero, 3B/OF, Los Angeles Dodgers: Guerrero has made his way into this space once or twice before, and thanks to a pretty good effort on Tuesday he’s back on the map again. He logged a grand slam against the Rockies to push his yearly total into the double-digits, and got another hit yesterday.
Guerrero has been providing some nice power numbers off the waiver wire for the better part of this year so far, and with his multi-positional eligibility he’s even more enticing. He’ll get the Cards at home this weekend.
Joe Panik, 2B, San Francisco Giants: Let’s finish up in San Fran today by taking a look at Panik. Heading into the Pittsburgh finale, he had an eight-game hit streak to his credit with six runs, two homers, seven RBI and a steal in that frame. He slapped two more hits with an RBI yesterday.
Panik had a scorching May and has translated that success into the early days of June. He’ll head cross-country to visit the Phillies starting tomorrow.
