Pitcher: $9,600 Robbie Ray- Ray has put together back-to-back dominant outings, and more of the same should be present. His price has escalated due to his success, but not enough to deter you from starting him. He is a relatively safe play with plenty of upside due to his tendency to accrue strikeouts.
Catcher: $2,300 Jason Castro- While he isn’t always a solid play, he is when the matchup presents itself. Castro will face Alex Cobb in what will be an excellent matchup for the entire Twins lineup; making them a strong stack candidate. Given the paucity of options at the catcher position, Castro stands out as one with both stability and upside.
First Base: $3,400 Ryan Zimmerman- Zimmerman has since slowed down after his other worldly month of April. Nevertheless, he has a propensity to turn in big games when he faces subpar pitchers. Because of their excellent matchup with Adam Conley, the Washington Nationals are a potential stack candidate.
Second Base: $3,000 Rougned Odor- There is a perpetual risk that comes with starting Odor, but when he faces a righty, playing Odor tends to pay off in a big way. He will face the right handed R.A. Dickey who has had a tumultuous season so far.
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 A.J. Cole. It also doesn’t hurt that Dietrich comes with a $3,100 price tag.
Shortstop: $3,400 Xander Bogaerts- Bogaerts has struggled a bit this year, but a big game could be headed his way. He should benefit from their matchup with J.A. Happ.
Outfield: $3,300 Nomar Mazara- Mazara is only capable of producing against right handed pitchers, making it a good thing that he is set to face a subpar one in R.A. Dickey. Dickey has been prone to struggle throughout this year, and the Texas Rangers should be able to take advantage of that. A big game could be in the works for Mazara thanks to his home run potential.
Outfield: $3,400 Ender Inciarte- Inciarte is mainly here to offset some of the risk that comes with starting players such as Odor, Castro, and Mazara. Nevertheless, Inciarte has enjoyed an excellent start to what has been a breakout campaign. He should continue to roll against the right handed Andrew Cashner.
Outfield: $3,500 Max Kepler- Arguably the best German player in the MLB, Kepler has proved that he has the talent to be successful in the MLB. He draws an excellent matchup with Alex Cobb, meaning he could be in for a big game. He has a relatively high floor, but he has a very high ceiling because of his home run potential.
