Fantasy Baseball 2016: Waiver Wire Update 6/13
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
June 13, 2016
The big early-week matchups around the MLB are getting started today, so it’s a great time to check out the fantasy baseball waiver wire and see what’s happening out there. Here’s a look at a few notable adds and numbers so you can see if anyone’s right for your roster.
Derek Norris, C/1B, San Diego Padres: Norris is still available in over 60 percent of the fantasy leagues out there, but if he keeps hitting, that will change. Over his last two games, he’s 4-for-7 at the plate.
Norris is still hitting just .211 on the year, but has had a very nice June so far. He’ll be in Miami starting today.

Chris Herrmann, C, Arizona Diamondbacks: Herrmann got the day off yesterday, but he’s still being added at a pretty good clip in fantasy. On Saturday, he popped a solo homer, which gives him six on the year.
The catcher position is basically a ghost town in fantasy these days, so Herrmann definitely deserves a look with his .286 BA and 22 RBI this season. He’s at home against the Dodgers this week.
Jayson Werth, OF, Washington Nationals: Over the past few years, Werth has served fantasy owners as a pretty decent lower-end outfielder. He’s reaching that level again this year, thanks to his 10 homers and 33 RBI thus far.
Werth has a nice five-game hit streak going right now, during which he’s produced nine hits, five runs, a homer and 10 RBI. He’ll be at home against the Cubs starting today.
Chase Anderson, SP, Milwaukee Brewers: Anderson is coming off a nice showing against the A’s last week, when he went 6.2 innings with no earned and four strikeouts. That gives him two straight wins.
Anderson is sitting on a 4.21 ERA with a 1.18 WHIP this year. His next start will be today in San Francisco and he’s a nice guy to keep an eye on right now.
CC Sabathia, SP, New York Yankees: Sabathia is still available in over half the leagues out there, and he’s looking like a solid pickup. In his last start, he allowed no earned over seven innings against the Tigers.
Sabathia has allowed just two earned since May 26 and is rocking a 2.28 ERA with a 1.21 WHIP right now. He’ll get a nice matchup against the Twins this week.
