Catcher: Tom Murphy ($2,900 FD) The new and improved young Mariners lineup is hitting lefties well and not many people have noticed. Murphy has 11 home runs in only 97 at bats. He hits 412 ISO/.458 wOBA and faces Brock Burke in the hitter friendly Globe Life Park. Brock has looked good in his major league debut, but I think that is more luck than skill personally. In the minors he had a 7.88 ERA. Look for Murphy, Nola and Seager to keep the Mariners in the game.
Catcher Value: None
First Base: Albert Pujols ($2,900 FD) I love Pujols at this price, vs Brian Johnson (L), at home, on a Saturday night. Pujols is hitting lefties better than righties this year, with 10 home runs in 147 ABs. There is something about Pujols at home on Saturday. He just tends to exceed value. I will lock him in at a cheap $2,900.
First Base Pivot: Danny Santana, Sam Travis, Austin Nola
Second Base: KiKi Hernandez ($2,700 FD) is on a hot streak and his price is not rising. In his last five games he has scored double digit fantasy points four times. He has exceeded 20 FanDuel points three times in the same time frame. Robbie Ray is on the bump and is not necessarily an easy target, unless you name is KiKi. He hits Ray at .395 ISO/.405 wOBA with four home runs against him in 38 at bats in his career. Dodgers look like they are in a sneaky MLB DFS spot tonight.
Second Base Pivot: Ryan McMahon, Adam Frazier
Third Base: Rafael Devers ($4,300 FD) hits .211 ISO/.344 wOBA vs lefties and is always a threat to go deep. Dillion Peters has given up three home runs in his last 8.2 innings pitched. A few Red Sox are going to hit one over the wall tonight and statistically Devers has one of the best chances. Red Sox are becoming my favorite MLB DFS stack of the night.
Third Base Pivot: Jose Osuna, Kyle Seager
Shortstop: Trevor Story ($4,100 FD) Shortstop looks loaded tonight but Story appears to be in the top spot. The Pirates are rolling out Joe Musgrove and they tend to want to let him go deep, whether he is getting hit or not. Tonight I think he gets hit. Rockies came out a bit flat last night and broke at lot of hearts at high ownership but that will not scare me off of them tonight. Story is hitting .274 ISO/ .382 wOBA with 23 home runs vs righties on the season.
Short Stop Pivots: Trea Turner, Kevin Newman, Xander Bogaerts (I think you have to pay up at SS tonight)
Outfield: J.D. Martinez ($4,500 FD) destroys lefties and gets to tee off vs Dillon Peters. He has given up six home runs in his last five games but still has managed a decent 4.11 ERA on the season. JD is hitting .483 ISO/.539 wOBA this season with 16 home runs in 118 ABs. He went deep last night and he has a great chance to do it again. If I end up stacking Red Sox, he would be the first bat I try to get in.
Outfield: Sam Hilliard ($3,100 FD) His price keeps sneaking up but at $3,100 he still can easily exceed value. In his short MLB debut he is hitting .545 ISO/.509 wOBA. Of course this will regress, but he is off to a very nice start. He has two home runs in his 11 AB’s vs righties in the majors. I am not scared to target Joe Musgrove tonight, especially in Coors. He has a 4.67 ERA on the season, and tonight shouldn’t help make that any better.
Outfield: Kole Calhoun ($3,300) The Angels will face lefty Brian Johnson (6.83 ERA) for the “bulk” of the game. Calhoun hits southpaws at .203/.441/.746 on the season. I expect the Angels to score enough to have a chance to win tonight and Calhoun should be batting around the cleanup spot and have the opportunity to help clear the bases. At $3,300 on FD he make for a nice MLB DFS value play.
Outfield Pivots: Willie Calhoun, Brian Goodwin, Aristides Aquino
