Pitcher: $9,900 Luis Severino- I don’t usually tend to splurge on the pitcher position, but Severino’s matchup with the Detroit Tigers is too strong to pass up on. Severino has enjoyed a strong season, and has put together dominant performances as well. One of those dominant performances could be in the works for tonights game as he will face a righty-prominent Tigers lineup. He is a relatively safe pick with a very high ceiling as well.
Catcher: $2,900 Cameron Rupp- Rupp has been on a bit of a hot streak recently and that success should continue tonight. He fares much better against left-handed pitchers and will face a subpar one in Justin Nicolino.
First Base: $2,900 Logan Morrison- Morrison is worth consideration anytime he is facing a righty thanks to his immense power. His matchup with Marcus Stroman only makes him a more enticing play. He does carry some risk due to his propensity to whiff, but his home run potential gives him plenty of upside.
Second Base: $3,200 Ian Happ- It has been difficult to ignore his production as the rookie has slugged a total of eighteen home runs. Albeit the fact that he is a switch hitter, Happ has performed better against righties. There is some risk to starting him, but the upside is too vast to overlook.
Third Base: $3,100 Derek Dietrich- This is a bit risky of a play, but the potential is there for Dietrich to have a big game. He is a completely different ballplayer when he faces a right handed pitcher, and will face a subpar one in Mark Leiter Jr. It also doesn’t hurt that Dietrich comes with a $3,100 price tag.
Shortstop: $3,100 Didi Gregorius- Gregorius has enjoyed a breakout season this year, and he should find more success against Jordan Zimmerman. There aren’t that many strong options at the shortstop position, which only makes starting him an easier decision. Putting him in my lineup tends to pay off in big ways and hopefully that will happen tonight.
Outfield: $3,500 Kyle Schwarber- The Chicago Cubs draw an excellent matchup with the right handed Asher Wojciechowski. Schwarber destroys righties, meaning a big game could be in the works for him. He is always a risky play due to his inability to accrue base hits, but his immense power at this price is difficult to pass up on.
Outfield: $3,400 David Peralta- Peralta, who obliterates righties, draws a matchup with the right handed Chris Flexen. Peralta has had a bit of a tumultuous season to date and will look to straighten things out tonight.
Outfield: $3,300 Josh Reddick- Reddick’s numbers are almost polar opposites for when he faces righties and for when he faces lefties. Luckily he is facing an inferior righty so Reddick should be in for a solid night.
