Fantasy Baseball 2016: Weekend Sleepers 6/4
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
June 4, 2016
Saturday marks a good time for us fantasy baseball owners to check out some of the notable sleepers and waiver wire options out there. Let’s take a closer look at the trending players and see what their recent numbers look like.
Jhoulys Chacin, SP, Los Angeles Angels: Chacin had originally been scheduled to start tomorrow, but due to a scratch he’s been moved up a day. That’s good news for fantasy owners in need of a quick band-aid pickup.
Chacin went the distance in his last start, striking out 10 and allowing just one Tiger to score. He’ll face the Pirates this afternoon.

Matt Wisler, SP, Atlanta Braves: It’s hard combing the Braves ranks for fantasy talent, but Wisler is doing his best to provide some nice value. He’s coming off seven innings against the Giants, allowing three runs in a loss.
Wisler won’t get many wins or Ks this year, but he does hold a respectable 3.16 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. He’ll get the Dodgers tomorrow.
Trayce Thompson, OF, Los Angeles Dodgers: Thompson has come on over the past week and is getting some decent fantasy attention. In his last three games, he has two solo homers and three hits overall.
Thompson holds a decent .280 BA with nine homers and 21 RBI this season. He’s got a favorable series against the Braves this weekend and works as a nice plug-in sleeper.
Zack Cozart, SS, Cincinnati Reds: Is Cozart really still widely available? Sure, he was slumping there for a while, but he’s sitting on a five-game hit streak right now and has homered in his last two straight.
During his hit streak, Cozart has provided 10 hits, six runs, three homers and six RBI. He and the Reds just started off a home-stand last night against the Nationals.
Dae-Ho Lee, 1B, Seattle Mariners: Lee is available in about every fantasy league out there, and is giving good value lately. In his last four games, he’s got nine hits with four runs, two homers and seven RBI.
Lee is hitting .310 on the season with eight homers and 20 RBI. He’s a great low-end 1B pickup right now for the Rangers and beyond.
