This lineup is only a first reaction to the players on a slate. For an updated lineup with more in-depth analysis and research, purchase a subscription below.
Pitcher: $9,000 Jose Berrios- Berrios has pitched well in what has been a breakout campaign. He should find more success tonight against a Chicago White Sox team that has struggled mightily this year. Berrios has a tendency to strike batters out, which means he has plenty of big game potential. He is a relatively safe pick with a lofty ceiling as well.
Catcher: $2,700 Brian McCann- McCann will face Andrew Cashner in a matchup that he should be able to take advantage of. Cashner is far from an ace-level talent, meaning the Houston Astros should be able to put a good amount of runs on the board. Given the dearth of options at the catcher position, McCann is a strong play given his excellent upside.
First Base: $2,900 Hanley Ramirez- Albeit the fact that Ramirez is a shell of his former self, he should still be able to turn in a solid game against J.A. Happ and the Blue Jays. He fares much better against lefties, meaning a big game could be in the works against a subpar one in Happ.
Second Base: $3,300 Scooter Gennett- Gennett erupted for a monster four home run game earlier this year, showing his abundance of upside. While you shouldn’t expect the same performance today, he should still be able to turn in a strong game. He obliterates righties and will face one in Rafael Montero.
Third Base: $3,900 Eugenio Suarez- Because of their matchup with Rafael Montero, the Cincinnati Reds are a very solid stack candidate. Suarez has enjoyed a strong season so far and that should continue against Montero. He has plenty of upside and is an excellent pick at this cheap of a price.
Shortstop: $3,200 Zach Cozart- Cozart, another player on the Cincinnati Reds, should benefit from their matchup with Rafael Montero. Mozart has put together a strong season to date, and that success should carry over for tonight. There aren’t that many great options at the shortstop position, making picking Cozart an easier decision.
Outfield: $3,300 Adam Duvall- Yet another player on the Cincinnati Reds, Duvall should be able to have a big game in an excellent matchup. There is a perpetual risk that comes with Duvall thanks to his tendency to strike out, but not enough to deter you from starting him.
Outfield: $3,000 Scott Schebler- Schebler is always a risky play, but he could be a strong contrarian play. Not many people will feature him in their lineup due to the risk that he possesses. Most of his value rests in his ability to hit home runs so if he is able to hit one out today, he will end up being an excellent value pick.
Outfield: $3,600 Kyle Schwarber- The Cubs draw an excellent matchup with the struggling Ivan Nova. 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.
