Are you looking to close your fantasy baseball week in style? Sunday’s a solid day of hardball with every team in action and plenty of starting pitching help from the waiver wire. Our fantasy baseball waiver wire starting pitchers have been on a roll lately as you can see at the bottom of the page. Hopefully, we can keep it rolling through the weekend to boost your team to victory.

Possible Pickups

Julio Teheran-Atlantas Braves: (21.8% owned) After starting the season by allowing more than three runs in each of his first three starts, Teheran has gone his last five allowing three runs or fewer. His last start was his best of the year going 8 1/3 allowing one run on five hits and earning the win over the Twins. It improved his record to 3-1 and got his ERA under four. Sunday he faces the Mets at Citi Field and should put together another solid outing.

Jerome Williams-Los Angeles Angels: (6.8%) Williams hasthree straight quality starts and is coming off his best of the year as well. He threw eight shutout innings against Seattle his last time out but tonight will go up against the Royals and the mercurial Wade Davis. Williams has helped stabalize the Angels rotation and looks to keep rolling Sunday.

Dylan Axelrod-Chicago White Sox: (0.3%) Axelrod gets the Marlins in Miami coming off back-to-back wins over the Twins and Red Sox. He lowered his ERA to 4.13 in those starts, but how gotten good run support lately. The Marlins are the weakest offensive team in baseball in many ways, so Axelrod couldn’t set up a better situation to make himself fantasy worthy.

Miguel Gonzalez-Baltimore Orioles: (0.5%) In his first game back from the DL, Gonzalez help the Yankees to a pair of runs in seven innings on his way to a no-decision. Sunday he starts in Toronto making him a long-shot, but a solid deep league option if he’s the best of what’s left out there. He’ll take on  Chad Jenkins of the Blue Jays in what should be a winable game.

Past Performance

Here’s how my picks have done the past week. The numbers are great for now; hopefully they stay that way.
