Fantasy Baseball 2015: Waiver Wire Update 7/28
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
July 28, 2015
It’s Tuesday, and around here that means it’s time once again to check out the fantasy baseball waiver wire and see what’s happening. We’ve got a fresh set of notable names for you this morning, so let’s take a closer look at the numbers and see if anyone’s right for your team.
Zack Godley, SP, Arizona Diamondbacks: Godley played pretty well in his Major Leage debut, which has led to some increased attention on the waiver wire this week. In that one, he logged a win in six innings of four-hit ball, allowing no earned runs.
Godley apparently has some decent stuff, so he’ll get another spin today in Seattle against the Mariners. He’s still widely available in most fantasy leagues.

Jaime Garcia, SP, St. Louis Cardinals: Now’s the time to grab Garcia if you’re going to do it; chances are he won’t be around much longer if he’s still available in your league. He’s making his return to the lineup today against Cincinnati, coming back from a missed month or so of action.
Prior to his injury, Garcia had a three-game run where he was 2-0, allowing a combined one earned. He’ll see the Reds today and try to get back to where he left of.
Melky Cabrera, OF, Chicago White Sox: Here’s another guy who won’t be available for long if he keeps performing the way he has. In the Indians series, Cabrera logged nine hits, five runs, two homers and eight runs in just four games. He bagged two more hits yesterday.
Cabrera has been on fire this past week, and he’s a must-have guy in just about every fantasy league right now. He’s in Fenway and then at home for the Yankees this week.
Nick Castellanos, 3B, Detroit Tigers: Speaking of being in Fenway, Castellanos did that this weekend. He managed three hits, two homers and four RBI in the final two games of the series.
Castellanos has been great in July, though he’ll still put up an 0-fer streak here and there. He’s in Tampa Bay and Baltimore this week as the road trip continues.
J.T. Realmuto, C, Miami Marlins: Realmuto has been on quite a run recently. He’s hit in his last six starts, posting four runs, a homer, three RBI and two steals in that frame.
Realmuto now owns six homers on the season, along with 28 RBI, a .259 average and four swipes. Pretty good for a rookie. He’s a nice deeper-league option in fantasy right now, and will head home to face the Nats today.
