The Daily Grind provides daily match-up advice based on my every-morning waiver wire search. I welcome advice to help make this column more effective. Ownership rates are from Yahoo!
You can go looking for Trevor Bauer, but odds are he’s not available.
Wei-Yin Chen is starting to become scarce too. He’ll face the Indians today.
Ross Detwiler has a decent match-up against the Braves tomorrow. He’s more of a medium risk, medium reward type. His is also the only waiver wire match-up I would consider.
Two consecutive quiet days on the reliever front. What is this world coming to?
Sergio Santos had another setback in his rehab, which is certainly a worrying sign. At this point, it might be time to consider this a lost season for Santos.
Jonathon Niese pitched well in a blowout win: 7 IP, 6 K, 1.29 ERA, 1.29 WHIP
Jarrod Parker pitched well but walked a few too many. He earned the win with: 7 IP, 9 K, 1.29 ERA, 1.00 WHIP
Tyler Moore had a big day. He went 3-for-5 with one home run, two runs, and two RBI.
Dayan Viciedo was 0-for-4. Forget I mentioned him. Did you notice how well Tyler Moore did?
Seth Smith was 0-for-2 with a walk.
Rajai Davis was 0-for-4.
