Pitcher: $8,600 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 Atlanta Braves. The Braves 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: $3,100 Alex Avila- Anytime that Avila is facing a right handed pitcher he is a solid play. He has had a mini resurgence this year and his success should continue against Trevor Williams. Given the dearth of options at the catcher position, having a solid option such as Avila is very important.
First Base: $3,400 Yonder Alonso- Alonso is primed for a big night seeing as how he draws an excellent matchup with Chris Tillman. Tillman has struggled mightily this year, and hopefully Alonso will be able to capitalize. At this price he is a bargain for the production that he brings.
Second Base: $3,100 Ian Happ- It has been difficult to ignore his production as the rookie has slugged a total of nineteen 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 immense to pass up on.
Third Base: $3,700 Mike Moustakas- Moustakas tends to fare much better against right handed pitchers and he is set to face one tonight in Austin Pruitt. Pruitt is very inexperienced, meaning Moustakas should be able to carve together a strong game at the plate.
Shortstop: $3,000 Jean Segura- Segura has enjoyed plenty of success so far this season, and he should find more of that success against Chris Tillman. His ability to get on base makes him a very safe play. You will be hard-pressed to find an option this strong at the shortstop position for a relatively inexpensive price.
Outfield: $3,600 Kyle Schwarber- The Cubs draw an excellent matchup with the inexperienced Trevor Williams. 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: $2,800 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 Mike Montgomery.
Outfield: $3,500 Andrew Benintendi- Benintendi draws a strong matchup with Marcus Stroman: a pitcher that can be roughed up. He does most of his damage against righties, meaning he will at least have an opportunity to go yard against the right handed Stroman. Benintendi doesn’t have that much of a floor, but he does have a good deal of upside thanks to his home run potential.
