Pitcher: $11,300 Chris Sale- I don’t usually tend to splurge on the pitcher position this much, but Sale’s excellent matchup warrants it. There is arguably not a single pitcher in the American League that has as high a ceiling as Sale, and he will have the chance to showcase that tonight. In his last meeting with the Rays, Sale was able to dominate. Another dominant outing should be in the works for Sale.
Catcher: $2,700 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 Mark Leiter Jr. At a position with a paucity of quality options, Wieters stands out as an excellent pick.
First Base: $2,900 Mitch Moreland- He should be in for a solid game as he is set to face Matt Andriese. Moreland tends to perform well in matchup with below-average righties such as Andries. Because of Moreland’s propensity to hit doubles, there is always a solid floor as well as a relatively high ceiling.
Second Base: $3,400 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: $3,100 Mike Moustakas- Moustakas tends to fare much better against right handed pitchers and he is set to face one tonight in Jose Berrios. This price is far too cheap for the type of production he can offer.
Shortstop: $3,000 Jean Segura- Segura has enjoyed plenty of success so far this season, and he should find more of that success against Andrew Heaney. 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: $3,100 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: $2,600 Joc Pederson- 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: $2,900 Matt Kemp- There aren’t that many players to choose from tonight, which makes starting Kemp an easier decision. He has had a bounce back season, and that should continue against Adam Conley. He doesn’t have that much of a floor, but he does have a fairly lofty ceiling.
