Pitcher: $10,100 Zack Greinke- Greinke has pitched well in what has been a very strong campaign. He should find more success tonight against a Miami Marlins team that he should find success against. Greinke 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 Garrett Richards in a matchup that he should be able to take advantage of. Richards has struggled at times this year, 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: $2,600 Logan Morrison- Morrison is worth consideration anytime he is facing a righty thanks to his immense power. His matchup with Ubaldo Jimenez 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: $2,700 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 Kendall Graveman who has had a tumultuous season so far.
Third Base: $2,800 Mike Moustakas- Moustakas tends to fare much better against right handed pitchers and he is set to face one tonight in Reynaldo Lopez. Lopez has been hit hard at times this year, meaning Moustakas should be able to carve together a strong game at the plate.
Shortstop: $4,400 Francisco Lindor- Lindor didn’t have the best first half of the season, but he has turned things around in the second half. He has showcased his power so far this year, but at a detriment to his contact as his batting average is subpar. A big game could be in the works for Lindor as he draws an excellent matchup with Erasmo Ramirez.
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 Ubaldo Jimenez. He is a very safe play, but he also has a good deal of potential.
Outfield: $3,300 Kyle Schwarber- The Cubs draw an excellent matchup with the inexperienced Brandon Woodruff. 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: $4,200 Andrew Benintendi- Benintendi draws a strong matchup with Sal Romano: a pitcher that can be roughed up. He does most of his damage against righties, meaning he will at least have an opportunity to go yard against the right handed Romano. Benintendi doesn’t have that much of a floor, but he does have a good deal of upside thanks to his home run potential.
