Pitcher: $8,500 Jose Berrios- Berrios has pitched well in what has been a breakout campaign. He should find more success tonight against a Toronto Blue Jays team that has struggled this year. Berrios has a tendency to strike batters out, which means he has plenty of big game potential. He is a relatively safe pick with a lofty ceiling as well.
Catcher: $2,900 Brian McCann- McCann will face Ricky Noclaso in a matchup that he should be able to take advantage of. Noclaso is far from an ace-level talent, meaning the Houston Astros should be able to put a good amount of runs on the board. Given the dearth of options at the catcher position, McCann is a strong play given his excellent upside.
First Base: $2,900 Yonder Alonso- Alonso is primed for a big night seeing as how he draws an excellent matchup with Andrew Cashner. Cashner has struggled mightily this year, and hopefully Alonso will be able to capitalize. At this price he is a bargain for the production that he brings.
Second Base: $2,900 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 Felix Hernandez who has had a tumultuous season so far.
Third Base: $3,300 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 $3,300 price tag.
Shortstop: $3,300 Jean Segura- Segura has enjoyed plenty of success so far this season, and he should find more of that success against Andrew Cashner. 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: $3,600 Shin-Soo Choo- Choo should make the most of his matchup with Felix Hernandez. He hasn’t experienced the greatest season, but it looks like he is making a turn in the right direction.
Outfield: $3,800 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 Felix Hernandez. Hernandez 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: $3,800 Kyle Schwarber- The Cubs draw an excellent matchup with the struggling Seth Lugo. Schwarber destroys righties, meaning a big game could be in the works for him. He is always a risky play due to his inability to accrue base hits, but his immense power at this price is difficult to pass up on.
