Fantasy Baseball Update 9/7/15: Key Matchups Early This Week
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
September 7, 2015
It’s Monday, and even though it’s a holiday it’s still important for us to keep an eye on our fantasy baseball lineups in daily and seasonal leagues. That said, let’s check out some of the upcoming matchups on the diamond and see who’s trending on the waiver wire.
Jakckie Bradley Jr., OF, Boston Red Sox: Let’s start out with Bradley, who is still owned in less than half the leagues out there. He’s currently sitting on a seven-game hit streak, with at least one run plated in each of those games
Bradley has also posted seven RBI in that time, so he’s definitely on a hot streak right now. He gets the Blue Jays at home today through Wednesday.

J.A. Happ, SP, Pittsburgh Pirates: Let’s head to the mound for a moment and check out Happ, who will pitch in Cincinnati on Wednesday. He’s currently riding a four-game win streak, with just one earned run allowed in that span.
Happ is sitting on a 3.90 ERA and 1.33 WHIP right now, which is pretty golden for a waiver-level fantasy guy.
Josh Tomlin, SP/RP, Cleveland Indians: Also pitching on Wednesday is Tomlin, who gained some attention after his complete-game, one-earned effort against Detroit his last time out.
Tomlin is sitting on four wins this year with a 2.55 ERA and 0.71 WHIP in 35.1 innings. He’ll be on the South Side for the White Sox on Wednesday.
Jed Lowrie, 3B/SS, Houston Astros: Remember Lowrie? He’s a sleeper pickup heading into this Oakland series. He’s got a six-game hit streak going with seven runs, three homers and seven RBI in that frame.
Lowrie has raised his seasonal BA to .250 with eight homers and 24 RBI. He’s actually got a pretty good matchup this week against the A’s, so he’s a nice pickup at that fantasy level.
Corey Seager, SS, Los Angeles Dodgers: Seager has done pretty well since his call-up. In three starts, he bagged five hits with two runs, three RBI and a stolen base.
There’s still a lot we don’t know about Seager, but the early returns look good. We’ll have to wait and see how he does in this Angels series starting today.
