Fantasy Baseball 2015: Weekend Sleepers 6/26
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
June 26, 2015
It’s Friday, and around here that means it’s time once again to visit the fantasy baseball waiver wire and check out some of the interesting sleeper prospects heading into the weekend. We’ve got an interesting collection of candidates for your roster today, so let’s take a look at the numbers and see who’s trending right now.
Luis Valbuena, 2B/3B, Houston Astros: Valbuena had a good series against the Angels, so he’s been a popular waiver wire add in the past couple of days. In two games of that series, he logged five hits with two homers, three runs and three RBI. He came up empty yesterday, though.
Valbuena is your guy if you need power numbers and don’t worry too much about batting average. He’ll come up empty a lot.

Kevin Pillar, OF, Toronto Blue Jays: Pillar is a guy we’ve talked about quite a bit this week. He’s currently riding high on a nine-game hit streak, logging two runs, two homers, three steals and five RBI in that span.
Pillar boasts a nice 34-RBI total with 12 steals this year. His BA isn’t spectacular, but he’s been keeping it out of the basement lately.
Ben Revere, OF, Philadelphia Phillies: Revere seems to pop up on the waiver wire radar at several points over the past few seasons, and now is no different. He had a nice series against the Yankees, logging seven hits, five runs, an RBI and a steal.
Revere has 18 swipes so far this year and has inched his BA up to a nice .292 over the past several games. He’s at home against the Nats this weekend.
Logan Forsythe, 1B/2B, Tampa Bay Rays: It’s been a while since we’ve looked at Forsythe, so let’s see how he’s doing. He’s gog a four-game hit streak to his credit, with a solo homer and two steals in that span.
Forsythe will be at home against the Red Sox starting today. He’s a nice low-end pickup for across-the-board numbers with his eight homers, seven steals and 32 RBI this year.
Cody Anderson, SP, Cleveland Indians: Anderson has been trending on the wire over the past few days following his 7.2-inning no-decision against the Rays in his debut. He logged no earned on six hits in that one, striking out four.
Anderson is getting the chance to impress in the Bigs right now following a successful run in the minors. He’ll be in Baltimore tomorrow and is a nice sleeper option.
