James Shields, vs. COL: $9,400- Shields isn’t the safest play tonight but he has some upside. He’s been destroyed by the long ball but playing in Petco should help that tonight.
Stephen Strasburg, vs. NYM: $10,100- The Nationals are bound to take one game from the Mets and my bet is it happens today. Look for Stras to close down the Mets and keep the race somewhat tight.
Also consider: Julio Teheran, Drew Hutchinson
Buster Posey: $4,700- Going to a great hitters park and has been great against lefties.
Also consider: Derek Norris, Matt Wieters
David Ortiz: $4,900- Ortiz has been absolutely crushing recently. I don’t see this stopping anytime soon. Look for another long ball tonight.
Brandon Belt: $4,500- Belt has the same things going for him that Posey did.
Also consider- Eric Hosmer, Jose Abreu
Neil Walker: $3,600- Save money on 2nd today. Go boom or bust with Walker.
Also consider: Darnell Sweeney
Evan Longoria: $4,000- We have started to see the Longoria of old recently. Look for him to keep hitting the ball with authority.
Also consider- Adrain Beltre
Troy Tulowitzki: $4,200- The best thing he has going for him is his price. Dropping him in the order hasn’t been great, but the price is.
Also consider- Brandon Crawford
Mike Trout: $4,800- Trout has been a hit machine recently, and he is Mike Trout.
Starling Marte: $4,600- The ballpark and matchup against Sampson is enough to play him for me.
Mookie Betts: $4,900- Good matchup in Boston. But he is also priced higher than Trout, don’t let that scare you away.
Also consider: Wil Myers
