Pitcher: $7,900 Joe Ross- Ross has seen a tumultuous start to the season and will look to straighten things out against the Reds. Cincinatti’s offense has been stifled by many a pitcher this year, and Ross could add his name to that list. Ross has put together a couple of excellent performances on the bump this year, so if that version of Ross is present, he should be able to provide you with plenty of value at a low price.
Catcher: $2,600 Jason Castro- While he isn’t always a solid play, he is when the matchup presents itself. Castro will face Christian Bergman in what will be an excellent matchup for the entire Twins lineup; making them a strong stack candidate. Given the paucity of options at the catcher position, Castro stands out as one with both stability and upside.
First Base: $3,600 Logan Morrison- Morrison will go up against the righty Dylan Bundy who is the owner of a 3.72 ERA. Anytime that Morrison faces a right handed pitcher there is a chance that he hits a ball out. His abundance of power against righties makes him a pick with tons of potential for tonight.
Second Base: $3,400 Jason Kipnis- Kipnis hasn’t had a great start to the year, but he will look to turn things around tonight. He draws an excellent matchup with Kyle Gibson in a matchup that he should be able to take advantage on.
Third Base: $4,400 Jose Ramirez- Ramirez has also been seeing the ball very well recently and should be able to reap the rewards in a tremendous matchup with Kyle Gibson. He has home run potential, but sine he is a contact hitter, there is always a nice floor. His price is starting to snowball, but he is still worth it given the dearth of other options.
Shortstop: $4,200 Trea Turner- Turner recently went on a cold stretch but that looks like it is all in the past now. He will have the opportunity for a huge night in a mouth-watering matchup with Homer Bailey. Bailey is making his first start since coming back from the 60 day DL, meaning you will want to have some exposure to the Nationals
Outfield: $3,400 Ender Inciarte- Inciarte is mainly here to offset some of the risk that comes with starting players such as Ross, Kipnis, Castro, and Morrison. Nevertheless, Inciarte has enjoyed an excellent start to what has been a breakout campaign. He should continue to roll against the struggling Matt Garza.
Outfield: $2,900 Lonnie Chisenhall- Chisenhall has had a surprisingly strong start to the year, and his success should carry over for tonight. His low price gives him plenty of value as well as upside. Chisenhall has a relatively high floor, but he has excellent home run potential as well.
Outfield: $3,200 Max Kepler- Arguably the best German player in the MLB, Kepler has proved that he has the talent to be successful in the MLB. His matchup isn’t the best, but he should be able to carve together a nice day at the plate. He has a relatively high floor, but he has a very high ceiling because of his home run potential.
