Pitcher: $8,400 Mike Clevinger- Clevinger draws an excellent matchup with the Baltimore Orioles. Right handed pitchers have been able to shut down the Orioles, and Clevinger should be able to do the same. The Orioles have been one of the hottest teams in the league, which makes Clevinger a nice contrarian play. He is a relatively safe pick due to his matchup, but his strikeout potential gives him the opportunity to have a big game.
Catcher: $3,000 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 German Marquez only makes him a more enticing play.
First Base: $3,900 Cody Bellinger- There is always some risk that comes with inserting rookies into your lineup, but Bellinger has looked like a seasoned veteran throughout his stint in the majors. As I said in the aforementioned paragraph, the Los Angeles Dodgers draw an excellent matchup with Marquez, making them a potential stack candidate. That means you will want to have a good deal of exposure to the Dodgers.
Second Base: $3,100 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 Masahiro Tanaka 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 Mike Foltynewicz. It also doesn’t hurt that Dietrich comes with a $3,100 price tag.
Shortstop: $3,000 Jean Segura- Segura has enjoyed plenty of success so far this season, and he should find more of that success against Ricky Noclaso. 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: $3,500 Shin-Soo Choo- Choo should make the most of his matchup with Masahiro Tanaka. He hasn’t experienced the greatest season, but it looks like he is making a turn in the right direction.
Outfield: $3,400 David Peralta- Peralta, who obliterates righties, draws a matchup with the right handed Jordan Lyles. Peralta and will look to straighten things out tonight in a dream-like matchup.
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.
