Pitcher: $9,400 Carlos Martinez- Martinez has pitched well in what has been a breakout campaign. He should find more success tonight against a Cincinnati Reds team that Luke Weaver was able to shut down at times last night. Martinez 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: $2,600 Brian McCann- McCann will face Carson Fulmer in a matchup that he should be able to take advantage of. Fulmer is very inexperienced, 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: $2,500 Logan Morrison- Morrison is worth consideration anytime he is facing a righty thanks to his immense power. His matchup with Jeremy Hellickson 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: $3,500 Daniel Murphy- Murphy and the Nationals will face R.A. Dickey, which means Murphy should have a chance at a big night. He has plenty of home run potential, and is a strong play considering there aren’t that many strong options at second base.
Third Base: $3,300 Travis Shaw- There is a perpetual risk that comes with starting Shaw, but his home run potential makes up for most of that risk. I don’t usually like starting players similar to Shaw, but there aren’t that many strong options at third base. He doesn’t have that much of a floor for today’s game, but he does have plenty of upside.
Shortstop: $4,200 Trea Turner- Turner has shown no signs of regressing after coming off of an extended stint on the DL. He has fared well against right handed pitchers, making it a good thing that he will face one in R.A. Dickey. Dickey has been hit hard at times this year, making both Turner and his teammates solid picks.
Outfield: $2,300 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 Jeremy Hellickson. He is a very safe play, but he also has a good deal of potential.
Outfield: $3,500 Kyle Schwarber- The Cubs draw an excellent matchup with the struggling Zach Davies. Schwarber obliterates 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.
Outfield: $3,600 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, meaning he should be in for a solid night.
