Pitcher: $8,500 Mike Clevinger- Clevinger draws an excellent matchup with the abysmal Detroit Tigers. Mediocre pitchers have been able to shut down the Tigers, and Clevinger should be able to do the same. He is a relatively safe pick due to his matchup, but his strikeout potential gives him the opportunity to have a big game.
Catcher: $3,100 Yasmani Grandal- Grandal has been one of the top hitting catchers in the MLB this year. Seeing as there is a paucity of solid options at the catcher position, anytime that Grandal is facing a righty he is worth a look. There isn’t much risk involved and there is plenty of home run potential; making Grandal an excellent pick. His matchup with Dinelson Lamet only makes him a more enticing play.
First Base: $3,500 Logan Morrison- Morrison is worth consideration anytime he is facing a righty thanks to his immense power. His matchup with Reynaldo Lopez is one that he should be able to take advantage of. He does carry some risk due to his propensity to whiff, but his home run potential gives him plenty of upside.
Second Base: $3,400 Jose Ramirez- Ramirez should be able to reap the rewards in a tremendous matchup with Buck Farmer. He has some home run potential, but since he is a contact hitter there is always a nice floor.
Third Base: $3,100 Mike Moustakas- Moustakas tends to fare much better against right handed pitchers and he is set to face one tonight in Dillon Gee. Gee has struggled mightily this year, meaning Moustakas should be able to carve together a strong game at the plate.
Shortstop: $3,100 Didi Gregorius- Gregorius has enjoyed a breakout season this year, and his success should continue against Doug Fister. There aren’t that many strong options at the shortstop position, which only makes starting him an easier decision.
Outfield: $3,500 Jay Bruce- Bruce should be able to take advantage of his matchup with Buck Farmer. There is always risk that comes with Bruce due to his tendency to whiff, but not enough to stop you from starting him. He doesn’t have that high of a ceiling, but he has plenty of big game potential thanks to his power.
Outfield: $2,800 Joc Pederson- Pairing Pederson with Grandal will give you a nice Dodgers mini stack.. Even though Pederson will have the chance to have a big game, he carries a perpetual risk due to his tendency to strike out. Nevertheless, Pederson has as much home run potential as anyone else, an ability that is valued highly.
Outfield: $4,000 Andrew Benintendi- Benintendi draws a strong matchup with Sonny Gray: 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 Gray. Benintendi doesn’t have that much of a floor, but he does have a good deal of upside thanks to his home run potential.
