Pitcher: $9,900 Aaron Nola- He has proved that he has the tools to be an ace down the road, but for now, Nola will look to turn in a strong performance against the San Francisco Giants. The Giants have struggled to put together runs at times this year, and Nola will look to take advantage of that. He does carry some risk due to his lack of experience, but the sky’s the limit when it comes to Nola.
Catcher: $2,700 Matt Wieters- This price seems way too low for the type of production he can offer. Wieters will have the opportunity to have a big game as he draws a matchup with Jhoulys Chacin. At a position with a paucity of quality options, Wieters stands out as an excellent pick.
First Base: $3,200 Ryan Zimmerman- Zimmerman has since slowed down after his other worldly month of April. Nevertheless, he has a propensity to turn in big games when he faces subpar pitchers. Because of their excellent matchup with Jhoulys Chacin, the Washington Nationals are a potential stack candidate.
Second Base: $3,100 Rougned Odor- There is a perpetual risk that comes with starting Odor, but when he faces a righty, playing Odor tends to pay off in a big way. He will face the right handed Reynaldo Lopez who has had a tumultuous start to the season.
Third Base: $2,800 Jedd Gyorko- Albeit that he is a righty himself, Gyorko performs much better against right handed pitchers. He has enjoyed a good deal of success this year, and that should continue against Jameson Taillon. Gyorko carries some risk, but his massive upside makes up for nearly all of that risk.
Shortstop: $3,200 Didi Gregorius- Albeit the fact that he is a lefty himself, Gregorius hits well against lefty pitchers as well. Luckily he will face a subpar one in a matchup that he should be able to take advantage of. He has a relatively high floor as well as a high ceiling.
Outfield: $3,600 Nomar Mazara- Mazara, who absolutely obliterates righties, draws a matchup with the right handed Reynaldo Lopez. Lopez shouldn’t be able to deter Mazara from having a big game. It also doesn’t hurt that his price is way too low for the type of production he can offer.
Outfield: $3,000 Shin soo Choo- Yet another Rangers player, Choo should make the most of his matchup with Reynaldo Lopez. He hasn’t experienced the greatest start to the season, but it looks like he is making a turn in the right direction.
Outfield: $3,500 Andrew McCutchen- Albeit the fact that Andrew McCutchen isn’t the player he once was, he should still be able to carve together a solid day at the plate. He is an enticing play thanks to his matchup with Adam Wainwright.
