Fantasy Baseball Update 7/27/15: Key Matchups Early This Week
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
July 27, 2015
It’s Monday, and that means it’s time for us fantasy baseball owners to start looking forward to the early-week matchups around the MLB. We’ve checked out the waiver wire and come up with a few notable names who might be posting some solid numbers in the next few days. Here’s a closer look.
Michael Conforto, OF, New York Mets: Conforto stormed onto the waiver wire on Saturday, logging a 4-for-4 outing with an RBI. He came up empty yesterday, but knocked in another run.
Conforto has had his ups and downs over his first Major League series, and he’ll get to show his stuff against San Diego at home starting tomorrow. We’ll see how he develops.

Melky Cabrera, OF, Chicago White Sox: Cabrera had a great series in Cleveland, and he’s earned another look in most fantasy leagues. Heading into yesterday, he had seven hits, five runs, two homers and seven RBI in a three-game stretch. He bagged two more hits yesterday.
Cabrera has been driving in RBI at a pretty consistent clip lately, so he’s definitely worth kicking the tires on before he heads to Fenway today for a date with the Red Sox.
Rougned Odor, 2B, Texas Rangers: Odor has appeared in this space several times over the past few weeks, and he made some more noise on Saturday. In that one, he logged a solo homer with two runs in L.A. He kept it going yesterday on a homer, three RBI and two runs.
Odor and the gang will be back at home starting today for a four-game set with the Yankees. He’s definitely earned your attention.
Preston Tucker, OF, Houston Astros: Tucker is a relatively new name on the waiver wire radar, and he’s coming off a good series in Kansas City. He put up four hits, two runs and a solo homer in the first two games. He came up empty yesterday, though.
Tucker is still widely available in most fantasy leagues, and he’s revealing himself to be a nice deeper-league pickup. He’ll be at home against the Angels starting tomorrow.
Kyle Hendricks, SP, Chicago Cubs: Hendricks is coming off a rough game in Cincinnati. In that one he logged five earned in a six-inning loss.
Hendricks had been doing well before that hiccup, however, with a 2-0 record and only one earned run combined in his previous four. He’ll get a chance to get back to that rhythm at home against the Rockies today.
