Pitcher: $9,600 Ervin Santana- Right handed pitchers this year have done pretty well against the Kansas City Royals, and Santana should be able to find that same success. Albeit the fact that he struggled a bit a couple of weeks ago, Santana has put together a dominant season. There aren’t that many strong options at the pitcher position for tonight, which only makes Santana a more enticing pick. Also, his price is at a point where it leaves you a decent amount of flexibility when making the rest of your lineup.
Catcher: $2,800 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 Matt Garza. At a position with a paucity of quality options, Wieters stands out as an excellent pick.
First Base: $3,500 Logan Morrison- Morrison is worth consideration anytime he is facing a righty thanks to his immense power. His matchup with Lucas Giolito 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 Chad Bell. He has some home run potential, but since he is a contact hitter there is always a nice floor.
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 Jake Thompson. It also doesn’t hurt that Dietrich comes with a $3,100 price tag.
Shortstop: $3,200 Zach Cozart- Cozart should benefit from the Cincinnati Reds’ matchup with Trevor Williams. Cozart 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: $2,700 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 Sal Romano.
Outfield: $3,200 Corey Dickerson- Dickerson is a stalwart in these articles anytime he is facing a right handed pitcher. This is looking like a breakout year for him, and his excellent play should continue against Lucas Giolito. He is a very safe play, but he also has a good deal of potential.
Outfield: $3,500 Josh Reddick- Reddick’s numbers are almost polar opposites for when he faces righties and for when he faces lefties. Luckily Reddick is facing an inferior righty so he should be in for a solid night.
