Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
June 30, 2015
Around here, Tuesday means it’s time once again for us to visit the fantasy baseball waiver wire and see who’s available out there. We’ve got our usual list of intriguing adds for you, so let’s check out the numbers and see if anyone’s right for your team.
Marco Estrada, SP/RP, Toronto Blue Jays: Let’s start things out on the mound today and check out Estrada. He’s on a nice run lately, and gave up just two hits and no earned in an 8.2-inning outing in his last appearance.
Estrada has now given up just one run on three hits in his last two games combined. He’s got a 3.45 ERA with a 1.10 WHIP on the year and will try to keep it going today against the Red Sox.

Mike Montgomery, SP, Seattle Mariners: Montgomery is a popular waiver wire pickup early this week as well. He’s coming off a complete-game shutout against the Royals, during which he logged just five hits and 10 strikeouts.
Montgomery has been quite a surprise recently. He’s rocking a 2.04 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP. He’s overachieving, but could keep it going against the Padres today.
Roughned Odor, 2B, Texas Rangers: We’ve looked at Odor a couple of times this season, and now he’s hot again. In the Toronto series, he managed six hits with two steals, a homer and two RBI. He bagged two more hits yesterday.
Odor has had a nice June and should be owned just about everywhere as his team finishes off their road trip in Baltimore. They’ll be home to face the Angels this weekend.
Jimmy Paredes, 2B/3B, Baltimore Orioles: Speaking of Baltimore, there’s a trendy add there in Paredes. He posted five hits in the Cleveland series, with four runs, a homer and two RBI in there as well. He sat yesterday.
Paredes is putting up career numbers this year and has been quite a surprise to just about everyone. His BA is great and he will likely be well into double-digit homers by season’s end.
Cesar Hernandez, 2B/3B/SS, Philadelphia Phillies: Utility man Hernandez is turning a lot of heads lately. He had six hits between the two games of the Washington doubleheader Sunday, coming home once and stealing three bases. He got an RBI, a run and a steal yesterday.
Hernandez is showing some promise for Philly with Chase Utley gone, and should be a major part of their plans in the near future. He gets Milwaukee early this week.
