Fantasy Baseball 2015: Waiver Wire Update 6/23
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
June 23, 2015
It’s Tuesday, and around here that means it’s time once again to check out the fantasy baseball waiver wire. We’ve got our usual list of up-and-coming players in store this morning, so with that said let’s check the numbers and see who’s right for your team.
C.J. Wilson, SP, Los Angeles Angels: After a couple of bad starts, Wilson has put together a nice run over his past two games. In that span, he’s posted just one earned run on 10 combined hits with a nice 17 strikeouts.
Wilson has been tearing up the waiver wire over the past couple of days ahead of today’s start against the Astros. Grab him if you can.

Jesse Chavez, SP/RP, Oakland Athletics: Here’s another interesting option from today’s pitchers. Chavez is coming off a nice outing against the Padres, logging seven innings with one earned on three hits.
Chavez will head down to Texas today to visit with the Rangers. He’s a decent option to improve on his 2.52 ERA and three-win total this season.
Kevin Pillar, OF, Toronto Blue Jays: We’ve talked about Pillar a couple of times in the past several days, and it’s not hard to see why. He had a nice series against Baltimore, logging five hits, a homer and two RBI. He logged another hit yesterday.
Pillar has had a great June, and shows little sign of slowing down. He’s a solid player to bolster your outfielder ranks this week.
Brock Holt, 1B/2B/3B/SS/OF, Boston Red Sox: Holt is another player we’ve talked about a few times lately. In the last two games of the Royals series, he posted four hits, three runs and three RBI.
Holt has been a great pickup for those fantasy owners wanting to nab a guy who can slot in at virtually any position. He’ll see the Orioles starting today.
Yunel Escobar, 3B/SS, Washington Nationals: Here’s a good guy to look at if you need help on the left side of that infield. Escober is currently riding a three-game hit streak, with eight hits, four runs, a homer and five RBI in that span.
Escobar has a .331 average this season with four homers and 26 RBI. We’ll see if he can continue his scorching June today against the Braves.
