12 game slate here this evening, and it should be a little more high scoring compared to last night. The Tigers/Indians have a doubleheader today, and some players are likely to be held out of the second game tonight. Just do your usual lineup checks and you’ll be fine. Some scattered thunderstorms in the Braves/Phillies and Rockies/Pirates game, but overall I think all the games should be played tonight.
David Price $10,700 – With the Twins 21% strikeout rate against LHP and Price striking out over a fourth of the batters he has faced this season. I am all over this matchup tonight. Price has allowed just a .291 wOBA this season, and the Twins lineup doesn’t pose any threats tonight.
Tyson Ross $7,400 – Ross is my guy tonight who can save you some cash, and yet post a big FDP line. Ross has allowed a .287 wOBA and has 8.8 K/9 this season. The Mets have only a .301 wOBA and a 20% strikeout rate against RHP this season.
Paul Goldschmidt $5100 – Goldy has an elite matchup tonight with Travis Wood on the hill, as he has allowed a .369 wOBA both to RHB and on the road. Goldy has crushed LHP this season, with a .449 wOBA and a 188 wRC+.
Josh Donaldson $3300 – Donaldson walked off last night with a 3 run shot, and that can give him a big boost of confidence as he struggled before the break. Donaldson has a .442 wOBA and a .393 ISO against LHP this season. Chen has allowed a .348 wOBA and a 15% HR/FB to RHB this season.
Starlin Castro $3000 – Shortstop is a bit weak tonight, but Castro comes at a solid price tonight in a hitter’s park. He gets Wade Miley who has been awful at home this season, allowing a .358 wOBA. Castro has had a .357 wOBA against LHP this season.
George Springer $4200 – Hector Noesi has allowed a .394 wOBA and a 24 LD% against RHB this season, and Springer is the guy to go yard tonight for this Houston team. He has 19 HR this season and has some tremendous power.
GPP Plays: Cole Hamels, Brandon Moss, Dustin Pedroia, Brock Holt, Mark Trumbo.
