Pitcher: $10,900 Robbie Ray- Ray has put together back-to-back dominant outings, and more of the same should be present. His price has escalated due to his success, but not enough to deter you from starting him. He is a relatively safe play with plenty of upside due to his tendency to accrue strikeouts.
Catcher: $2,600 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 Jake Thompson. At a position with a paucity of quality options, Wieters stands out as an excellent pick.
First Base: $2,600 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 J.A. Happ 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 Happ.
Second Base: $3,400 Daniel Murphy- Murphy and the Nationals will face Jake Thompson, 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: $2,600 Mike Moustakas- Moustakas tends to fare much better against right handed pitchers and he is set to face one tonight in Anibal Sanchez. Sanchez has been hit hard at times this year, meaning Moustakas should be able to carve together a strong game at the plate.
Shortstop: $2,600 Corey Seager- Seager has had a very strong season, and that should continue tonight. He absolutely obliterates righties, making it a good thing that he will face one in Dinelson Lamet. He has a fairly high floor as well as a very high ceiling.
Outfield: $3,600 Ender Inciarte- Inciarte is mainly here to offset some of the risk that comes with starting players such as Moutakas, Seager, and Ramirez. Nevertheless, Inciarte has enjoyed an excellent start to what has been a breakout campaign. He should continue to roll against the right handed Rafael Montero.
Outfield: $3,300 Mitch Haniger- Albeit that he is a righty himself, Haniger performs much better against right handed pitchers. He has enjoyed a good deal of success this year, and that should continue against Daniel Mengden. Haniger carries some risk, but his upside makes up for nearly all of that risk.
Outfield: $3,300 Kyle Schwarber- Schwarber obliterates righties, and seeing as how he is set to face one tonight, 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.
