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!
The Fanduel picks are a mixture of Daily League specific advice and information for the more typical fantasy owner.
Those in leagues with same-day moves should refer back to yesterday’s table.
Pitcher (to start): Not the best day to stream pitchers.
Hitter (speed): Carlos Gomez is back again. He could provide a little pop too.
Some guy named Chris Carpenter is starting today. I need not warn you that it’s been a long time since he has faced major league hitters, but here I am warning you anyway.
Martin Perez is up against the Mariners. Obviously, the match-up is great, but I haven’t bought into Perez’s readiness quite yet.
I’m not terribly excited about tomorrow’s options. I would be looking in the direction of Jon Jay, David DeJesus, Chris Johnson or Brandon Belt. If all you need are stolen bases, you could also try Ben Revere.
If you live somewhere with internet access, you’ve probably heard that top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy has been activated to serve in the Orioles bullpen. The impact this season is probably zero, but keeper leagues should have already made their move.
