It is time to attack David Hess again with Yankees. I am
mainly looking at Aaron Hicks for $4700 on DraftKings, and Kendrys Morales at 3600
to save some salary. Gleyber Torres has been great on the road this year, so I
will also consider him at 5100.
Marcus Stroman has not been bad at all, but just call it a
hunch to use Red Sox against him. I will prioritize Andrew Benintendi at 4300
and Rafael Devers at the same price. I have seen Stroman fall apart before when
it appears he is going well.
Michael Pineda is happy to serve up HRs, so I am definitely
going to be rostering Tommy La Stella tonight. He is the essential play of the
day. He is hitting .333 with 10 HR and 24 RBI vs. righties.
We will try this Mets
thing again after they won last night and draw Erick Fedde tonight. Robinson
Cano doubled as a pinch hitter Monday and is just 3500. If J.D. Davis gets in
the lineup, he is 3900 and is hitting .357 with seven runs scored in 15 home games.
Jeff McNeil (4,300) is at .308 with seven walks and 10 runs scored at home.
Pete Alonso hit his 15th HR on Monday and will be worth the 5200.
I will anchor a few lineups with Christian Yelich at home vs. Sonny Gray. He is hitting .406 with 15 HRs, 32 RBI and 17 walks at Miller Park. Yelich is he most expensive player on the board at 5800 but he will be worth it tonight. If Ben Gamel gets in the lineup he is hitting .310 with eight runs scored in 22 home games and is at 3900.
I expect the Texas-Seattle game to provide a lot of quality
hitting with Tommy Milone facing Lance Lynn. I will go with Hunter Pence at
5100 and will consider Danny Santana (4,800) if he is in the Texas lineup. I
will also take a shot on the recently returned Mallex Smith to get things going
at 4000 even though he may be at the bottom of the lineup. Dee Gordon will be
locked in at 4200 and I may consider Daniel Vogelbach at 4900 if he is in the
Dylan Covey has a 7.50 road ERA so let’s hand pick some
Astros. Michael Brantley (5,000) is hitting .326 with 25 RBI and 25 R vs. RHPs.
Alex Bregman (5,400) has 11 HR, 30 RBI and 28 walks vs, righties. I will also
see if Tony Kemp gets in the lineup as a possible salary saver for 3,900.
Eddie Rosario is well worth the 4500 against Trevor Cahill,
and I will also consider Jason Castro at 4300.
