Fantasy Baseball 2015: Waiver Wire Update 6/9
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
June 9, 2015
It’s Tuesday, and around these parts that means it’s time once again to check out the waiver wire in the world of fantasy baseball. We’ve got a fresh crop of shiny new talent for you to peruse this morning, so let’s check out the numbers and see who’s making an impact out there.
Carlos Correa, SS, Houston Astros: The Astros made big news this week when it was announced that they’d purchased the contract of Correa from Triple-A, and he’d be coming up with the big club. He got a hit and an RBI in his debut yesterday.
Correa smacked 10 homers with 43 RBI and 18 steals in 52 games in the minors this year. There’s not a whole lot out there at SS in fantasy, so he’s immediately relevant if you can get him.

Maikel Franco, 3B, Philadelphia Phillies: Franco has been on quite a run over the last week or so. Through the Giants series, he had a six-game hit streak with seven runs, four homers and eight RBI in that span. He nailed three more hits yesterday to keep it going.
Franco smacked four multi-hit games between the Reds and Giants series, and it’s really improved his batting average, which is still hovering around. .250. He’s worth a look while he’s hitting.
Mark Buehrle, SP, Toronto Blue Jays: Now let’s move over to the mound and check out Buehrle, who has put together two great games in his last pair of starts. He’s coming off a complete-game shutout in DC, allowing just six hits.
In the appearance before that, Buehrle tossed a complete game with four earned on six hits. He’s still got a 4.35 ERA, but he’s up to seven wins and is on a nice roll heading into today’s start against the Marlins.
Eduardo Rodriguez, SP, Boston Red Sox: Another pitcher to look out for today is Rodriguez, who has been great in his first two major-league outings. He put up seven innings and just one earned on two hits against the Twins.
Rodriguez now owns a 0.61 ERA and WHIP through two starts, and has 14 strikeouts. He’ll get a chance to keep it going today in Baltimore.
Joe Panik, 2B, San Francisco Giants: Panik has been on quite the roll lately. Through the Phillies series, he’s constructed a 12-game hitting streak, logging five multi-hit games in just his last seven outings.
Panik always seems to be good for batting average, and he’s showcasing that recently. That said, he won’t offer as much as you might think in the RBI category. Still, he’s a must-have guy in most fantasy leagues.
