Fantasy Baseball 2015: Waiver Wire Update 7/13
2015-07-12 11:00:00 EDT
There’s no MLB action going on right now, so it’s a good time to take stock of your fantasy baseball lineup and see if you need to make some changes. There are players out there who seem primed for big series in their upcoming games after the All-Star break, so let’s take a closer look at the numbers and see who you might want to pick up.
Matt Duffy, 2B/3B/SS, San Francisco Giants: It’s been a while since we’ve looked at Duffy, so let’s see how he’s doing. He exploded Friday and Saturday, combining for seven hits, two runs and four RBI. He came up empty yesterday, though.
Duffy has been kind of hit-and-miss lately, so it’s good to see him playing well again. He should have a good road trip in Arizona and San Diego when he gets back to work.
Taylor Jungmann, SP, Milwaukee Brewers: Now let’s head to the hill and visit with Jungmann, who is on quite a roll. He’s coming off a complete game in L.A., allowing just one earned on three hits.
Jungmann has pitched 17 innings with two earned in his last two combined starts. He’s a deeper-league consideration as a matchup play, just don’t expect too much out of him.
Gerardo Parra, OF, Milwaukee Brewers: Parra jumped back onto the waiver wire radar on Saturday, when he logged three hits with a homer and two RBI against the Dodgers. He sat yesterday.
Parra is probably headed for greener pastures in a trade, but in the meantime will get regular starts while he’s hitting. The Brewers get Pittsburgh at home when they come back.
Mark Buehrle, SP, Toronto Blue Jays: Buehrle pops up on our waiver wire radar from time to time, and he’s been quite hot lately. He’s coming off a seven-inning win in KC, allowing two earned on five hits.
Buehrle is 3-1 in his last four starts and hasn’t allowed more than two earned in a game since May 29. He’s a nice pickup out of the break.

C.J. Cron, 1B, Los Angeles Angels: Cron is starting to pop up on owners’ waiver wire radar this past week, as he started out the Mariners series with five hits, two runs, two homers and three RBI in three games. He had three more hits yesterday.
Cron has really helped his seasonal average recently, and now gains daily relevance as a matchup play. He’ll strike out a lot, but hopefully will deliver at home against the Red Sox this weekend.
