Pitcher: $9,100 Zack Godley- Godley has pitched well in what has been a very strong campaign. He should find more success tonight against a San Francisco Giants team that has struggled mightily this year. Godley 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: $2,700 Brian McCann- McCann will face Andrew Cashner in a matchup that he should be able to take advantage of. Cashner has been hit hard 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: $2,700 Hanley Ramirez- Albeit the fact that Ramirez is a shell of his former self, he should still be able to turn in a solid game against Brett Anderson and the Blue Jays. He fares much better against lefties, meaning a big game could be in the works against a subpar left hander in Sabathia.
Second Base: $2,500 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 Collin McHugh who has had a tumultuous season so far.
Third Base: $3,300 Jake Lamb- Lamb has enjoyed an excellent start to the season, and his success hasn’t waned in the past few weeks. While he does carry some risk due to his tendency to strike out, Lamb’s immense power more than makes up for it. There is a very high chance that he ends up giving you a zero in the scoring column, but there is a chance that he realizes some of his home run potential and turns in a big game.
Shortstop: $3,000 Paul DeJong- DeJong has burst onto the scene this year to the tune of 24 home runs and a .280 batting average. His success should continue against the left handed Jon Lester.
Outfield: $4,300 Nelson Cruz- Cruz enjoyed a good deal of success so far this year and should be able to find some more against the inexperienced Daniel Gossett. I don’t usually like to sacrifice most of my budget on a single hitter, but Cruz looks like he is worth it. He has a very high chance at being the days best player thanks to his immense power.
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.
Outfield: $3,700 David Peralta- Peralta, who obliterates righties, draws a matchup with the right handed Johnny Cueto. Peralta will look to straighten things out tonight in a dream-like matchup.
