You never know which version of Sandy Alcantara is going to
show up, but if the version that allowed six runs in five innings to the
Phillies in Miami in April does, I want some Philly bats. Bryce Harper is quite
affordable on DraftKings at $4400 and Cesar Hernandez is $3700. Jean Segura is
hitting .301 with 26 runs scored in home games and is ideal at 4000. Scott
Kingery is a .300 hitter at home with 13 RBI and 11 runs scored in 17 games and
is well worth the 4900 spend.
Trent Thornton has been better on the road (2.98 ERA) than
at home, but I just cannot resist a few Boston hitters against him. Xander Bogaerts
is hitting .324 in June with four homers and 12 RBI, while Andrew Benintendi is
at .301 with eight RBI and 10 runs scored. J.D. Martinez has five homers, 10
RBI and 12 runs scored this month.
Michael Wacha is coming off a rough start against the Mets,
so Mike Trout is a top play of course, and Justin Upton is still at just 4100.
Justin Bour gets the platoon split and is 3700 on DK.
The Rangers are going to be a popular stack against Reynaldo
Lopez. who has an 8.88 ERA over his past five starts. Danny Santana is hitting
.357 in June with 11 runs scored, eight RBI and three steals. Delino Deshields Jr. (4000) is hitting .327 with
three steals and nine runs scored. Elvis Andrus (5000) has 16 RBI this month
and Asdrubal Cabrera (4100) has 12. You also have to consider the Chicago
hitters against Ariel Jurado. Eloy Jimenez (4800) is hitting .321 this month with
six homers and 14 RBI. James McCann can be your catcher if you want to spend
4800, as he has three home runs, nine RBI and nine runs scored this month. Yolmer
Sanchez is coming off a three-hit night with a triple and could be a punt play
Chase Anderson has a 5.79 ERA in June. Jose Iglesias is
hitting .310 with 16 RBI and 13 runs scored in road games and is a fine play at
3500. You can also get both Derek Dietrich and Jesse Winker from the left side
for under 4500.
Jakob Junis, always a top DFS target, has a 5.68 home ERA.
Just about any Twins bats you like are in play, including Max Kepler (5000),
Eddie Rosario and Jorge Polanco at 4600, Miguel Sano at 4200 and Jonathan
Schoop at 3900, and Willians Astudillo as a 3500 salary saver.
You can also try some Arizona bats against Jeff Samardzija, including
Christian Walker at 4100. German Marquez has a 10.06 June ERA so go for the
Dodgers’ Max Muncy at 4900 and all other Los Angeles bats deserve strong
consideration. Chris Taylor is hitting .364 over the past week with six RBI and
he is at just 3700.
