Pitcher: $7,100 Tyler Chatwood- Even though I want to start Chris Sale in a dream matchup with the Texas Rangers, I can’t bring myself to sacrifice that much flexibility over my lineup. However, Tyler Chatwood is a solid consolation pick. Albeit the fact that his production this year has been very volatile, he could be in for a good game. One good sign is that he won’t be playing in Coors Park which automatically adds some value to him. This is a risky play, but at this cheap of a price, the risk becomes easier to absorb.
Catcher: $2,700 Matt Wieters- Wieters is looking like he has adjusted well to his new team as he will carry a ten game hitting streak into tonights game. Given his price and a dearth of options at the catcher position, Wieters is easily my favorite catcher of the day. He should be able to get another hit and throw in some more peripheral numbers.
First Base: $2,400 Matt Adams- It looks as if if the change of scenery has benefited Adams mightily. Picked up by the Atlanta Braves after Freddie Freeman was placed on the DL, Adams went yard in only his second game with his new team. He should be able to have another big night yet again as he will face Trevor Williams.
Second Base: $3,000 Ryan Schimpf- Even though Schimpf currently owns a .169 batting average on the year, he has shown signs of heating up. He has gone yard in back to back games and will look for a third against Robert Gsellman and the New York Mets.
Third Base: $3,200 Mike Moustakas- Moustakas tends to fare much better against right handed pitchers and he is set to face one tonight in Luis Severino. Despite the fact that Severino has enjoyed a dominant start to the season, Moustakas should still be able to carve together a strong game at the plate.
Shortstop: $3,500 Trea Turner- Turner will continue to be a strong play as long as he is at a reasonable price point. The Washington Nationals are a potential stack candidate as they are matched up with the very inexperienced Sam Gaviglio. Turner is a relatively safe play yet the big game potential is always present.
Outfield: $4,200 Michael Conforto- Conforto put together an excellent outing last night as he was able to go yard twice. While you shouldn’t expect the same to come true tonight, something similar is not out of the question. Anytime that Conforto draws a matchup with a subpar righty he is a must-start player.
Outfield: $4,100 Corey Dickerson- Another player who does most of his damage against righties, Dickerson is set to face one in Ricky Noclaso. He should have no problem putting together a solid performance against Noclaso and his far from dominant pitch arsenal.
Outfield: $4,800 Bryce Harper- As I stated in one of the aforementioned paragraphs, the Nationals should be able to have a field day against Gaviglio. Gaviglio will be no match for Harper meaning he could be in for a big game. There is always a relatively high floor that comes with Harper, but the sky is the limit to what he can accomplish in a single game.Follow @jackstatsblog
