Fantasy Baseball 2015: Weekend Sleepers 9/4
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
September 4, 2015
It’s Friday, and that means it’s time once again for us to check out some of the up-and-coming sleepers and waiver wire trends in the world of fantasy baseball as we head into the weekend. Let’s take a closer look at the numbers and see if anyone’s worth picking up in your daily or seasonal league.
Corey Seager, SS, Los Angeles Dodgers: Word broke yesterday that the Dodgers were planning on calling up infield sensation Corey Seager, and his fantasy stock appropriately shot up. He responded by bagging two hits, two runs and a pair of RBI.
Seager is one of the most notable prospects left in the minors right now, and he’s posted 38 homers with 86 doubles over the past two years. He’ll probably get a decent amount of playing time, and he’s worth picking up if you’re SS-needy and looking ahead.

Kris Medlen, SP/RP, Kansas City Royals: Medlen is still available out there in about 2/3 of the fantasy leagues. He’s got wins in his last two outings, allowing three runs in each and striking out a combined 11 batters.
Medlen will be in action today against the White Sox and looks like a pretty good matchup play if you’re in need.
Zack Godley, SP, Arizona Diamondbacks: Here’s another young sensation you should take notice of. Godley will come back up to the majors today for an afternoon tilt against the Cubs at Wrigley.
Godley has four wins this year and carries a 1.90 ERA with a 1.10 WHIP. He’s kind of a coin-flip here and comes with some risk, but if you’re feeling adventurous you might want to check him out for today’s game.
Didi Gregorius, 2B/SS, New York Yankees: Gregorius has popped up in this space at least a few times this year, and here he is again. He’s currently working a pretty impressive seven-game hit streak, posting eight runs, three homers and 12 RBI in that span.
Gregorius has his BA up to .272 with 44 RBI and 49 runs plated this season. He’s the dictionary definition of hot heading into the Rays series today.
Michael Conforto, OF, New York Mets: Speaking of hot streaks, Conforto is on one as well. He’s hit in four straight games, with his last three being multi-hit outings. In that time, he’s posted two runs, two homers and four RBI.
Conforto is batting a nice .311 this year with five homers and 17 RBI in all. He seems like a pretty good low-end option heading into the Marlins series down in Miami.
