Fantasy Baseball 2016: Waiver Wire Update 7/4
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
July 4, 2016
It’s Monday, and around here that means it’s time once again for us to take a look at the fantasy baseball waiver wire. We’ve got several new faces for you to peruse as we head into the break, so let’s take a closer look at the numbers and see if anyone fits your roster.
Junior Guerra, SP/RP, Milwaukee Brewers: Let’s start out today on the mound like usual and see what’s up with Guerra. He’s coming off eight shutout innings against the Dodgers in his last outing, recording a win with seven strikeouts.
Guerra holds a 3.25 ERA with a 1.07 WHIP on the season, and he’ll put those numbers to the test today in Washington.

Bud Norris, SP/RP, Los Angeles Dodgers: Another hot-ticket SP right now in fantasy is Norris. In his Dodgers debut, he went six shutout innings against the Rockies, grabbing a win with eight strikeouts.
Norris is sitting on a 3.89 ERA with a 1.30 WHIP on the year, and those numbers are bound to improve now that he’s on a better team. He’ll get Baltimore in the series finale next.
Seth Smith, OF, Seattle Mariners: Smith is a relatively new fixture on the waiver scene, and he’s being added at a steady clip. In his last five-games, he’s got 10 hits, five runs, four homers and 11 RBI.
We’re not sure what’s gotten into Smith, but we’ll take it. He’s sitting on a .280 BA and 10 homers with 38 RBI thus far, and will see the Astros starting today.
C.J. Cron, 1B, Los Angeles Angels: Cron entered Sunday’s game with a whopping 10 hits, seven runs, three homers and nine RBI in just his previous three games. He then followed that up by going 0-for-4 in the Boston finale.
Cron is still getting adds thanks to his outburst, however, and holds a .282 average with nine homers and a nice 42 RBI this season. He’s going against Tampa this week.
Didi Gregorius, SS, New York Yankees: We’re a bit surprised Gregorius isn’t owned in more leagues out there, but that’s good news for you if you need middle infielders. He’s hit in his last seven games straight, with seven runs, three homers and six RBI in that span.
Gregorius holds a .291 BA with nine homers and 38 RBI this year. He’ll go up against the White Sox and the Indians on the road this week.
