Catcher/First Base  

Kevan Smith, LAA at TOR

DK ($3,400)   FD ($2,500)

As you’ll see throughout this article, I love the L.A. Angels tonight against the struggling Marcus Stroman. He faces an Angels team that has consistently demolished him, although without much of the long ball. Well, that changes tonight in the Rogers Centre, which is allowing a league high 1.520 HR/per game. In Smith’s last start on 6/15 he totaled 30.9 FD points and has actually donged off Stroman before in one AB. That is obviously not a big sample size, but considering I do expect the Angels to dominate this one, Smith should have some RBI opportunities even at the bottom of the order. This is a solid wrap-around stack. The Angels are favored by -120 with a nine under/over.

**Remember, Toronto’s bullpen was killed last night due to Edwin Jackson’s two inning home run derby of an effort, so Stroman might be asked to eat up some innings tonight. Lock this in!**

Second Base  

Ildemaro Vargas, COL at ARI

DK ($4,000)   FD ($2,300)

Vargas should find his way into the starting lineup again as the Diamondbacks set to face Colorado in Arizona. Vargas is 5-10 over his last two starts. Arizona will be another team that I am stacking and like Smith, Vargas is a cheap part of a great stack. The Diamondbacks own a .304 team BA against Antonio Senzatela. Vargas has yet to see him but is the perfect switch-hitting candidate to grab the number two hole in the order and benefit off runs, RBI and maybe a stolen base. The Diamondbacks are favored by -145 with a 10 under/over.

Third Base

Eduardo Escobar, COL vs. ARI

DK ($5,400)   FD ($3,900)

Escobar has been on fire, hitting safely in 12 of his last 15 games. Tonight he sees Antonio Senzatela, who owns a 6.39 ERA over his last two starts and has already faced Arizona once this season, allowing a .360 team BA and a home run with nine hits over six innings pitched. Don’t forget about Escobar’s upside. Just seven games back he totaled 60.1 FD points off two HRs. I love the Diamondbacks today, especially the lefties!

Shortstop

Marcus Semien, BAL at OAK

DK ($4,500)   FD ($3,500)

Oakland didn’t pan out the way I had hoped last night, but tonight I will be returning to the well because I know if Oakland sees that bullpen, it could/should be GPP fantasy points galore. Baltimore’s bullpen is filled with a bunch of guys that should be in someone’s minor league system. Oakland will bash them, if they see them. Let’s hope they see four to five good innings against Baltimore’s bullpen and if they do, Marcus Semien will be the one who benefits the most off runs, stolen bases, RBI and he always has the long ball potential. The A’s are favored by -240 with a nine under/over.

Outfield 

Mike Trout, L.A. vs. TOR

DK ($5,600)  FD ($4.600)

First things first, Mike Trout is my outfield lock or the day. Trout owns a .500 BA in 16 at-bats against Stroman with three doubles. We have a big slate tonight and quality pitching shouldn’t be too hard to find. Therefore, you should be able to acquire Mike Trout without taking too big of a salary hit. Stroman has been struggling as of late with a 4.82 ERA for the month of June (and his last start was actually impressive). The Angels are batting .439 in 65 at-bats. Lock and load the Angel bats in the Rogers Centre.

Mookie Betts, BOS vs. MIN

DK ($4,800)   FD ($4,100)

Betts owns a .304 BA with two doubles and two home runs in 24 at-bats. The Red Sox are favored by -115 with a 10 under/over. Minnesota has Micheal Pineda on the mound.He has a 5.04 ERA and a 5.20 home ERA. He pitched well in his last outing but when this guy’s bad, he’s bad. Betts has massive upside tonight as I expect Boston to be aggressive on the basepaths and Betts could very well have a steal or two, as he’s already stolen two bases against Pineda before. Benefiting off runs and RBI, Betts will be my one-off play of the day.

Other Option: Shohei Ohtani

Monkey Knife Fight Pick of the Day 

Tyler Skaggs, Marcus Stroman and Shohei Ohtani – Over, Under, Over

Toronto has totaled 63 strikeouts over the past week, ranking them sixth highest in the Majors. I do expect Skaggs to go at least five and get the W, therefore over 5.5 strikeouts is the way to go for sure. Stroman’s prop is easy. The Angels should demolish Stroman and they have not been striking out over the past week and mont,h ranking in the bottom 50 percent over both spans. My only concern is they let him eat up innings, then he could possibly get some garbage Ks, but that alone won’t take me off the under here for Stroman’s prop. Lastly, Ohtani is on fire and 1.5 total bases is an easy over for me, especially since I expect the Angels to win big. Good luck tonight! Play MLB Props NOW and get 100 percent bonus!
