DRAFT NOW

Catcher

Stud

Francisco Cervelli ($3200) – I am not thrilled with the catching options on the board today and will probably look to save at the position. One guy who I like is Francisco Cervelli. The Pirate backstop has been hitting left-handed pitching well all season. He has a tough match up with John Lester, but Lester has been worse to right-handed batters and Cervelli has a .400 wOBA against lefties, so he profiles to do well. Cervelli is also 9 for his last 21 with three of those last seven games resulting in double digit fantasy point outings. For only $3200, I think he is worth the risk.

Value

John Jaso ($2900) – Jaso has been a solid bat at the catching position who has alternated between leading off and hitting in the clean up spot of the order. He faces Adam Warren of the Yankees who I expect Tampa Bay to put some runs up on. Jaso is incredibly cheap and has flashed double digit upside in recent games. He has hits in 6 of his last seven starts, so the upside and safety are there for him today.

First Base

Stud

Chris Davis ($5600) –chris davis I have picked on Joe Kelly a lot this year and do not think I will be stopping now. This is a very expensive price for Davis, but he’s been worth every penny lately. The Orioles slugger has the splits matchup he prefers and faces a weak pitcher. He is also 13 fr his last 32 with 4 homeruns. He is averaging 14 fantasy points per game over his last ten, which includes 6 games where he scored double digit fantasy points.The price tag will help keep his ownership down, but that only makes him a better GPP play in my eyes as you get one of the hottest hitter’s in baseball at a discount.

Value

Matt Adams ($3300) – This one is a little bit of a dicey play, but after launching a pinch hit homer last game, I think Adams might earn himself a start here. The first baseman missed a lot of time due to injury and has only pinch hit in his three games since. He would have a nice matchup against the youngster Pena today and would make for a great salary saving option at $3300 if he gets in. I currently have him as a cheap play at 1st base in my roster, so I am hoping this is the case.

Second Base

Stud

Ben Zobrist ($4000) – Zobrist is a very safe solid consistent producer in fantasy baseball. He might not have the huge upside others do, but his floor is what makes him a great option. He has gone 9 for 25 over his last six games with at least one hit in each of them. He always seems to be on base from his two hole spot in that order and therefore he scores a ton of runs. He faces Josh Tomlin today, who has some good upside, but has been prone to an occasion inning where it all falls apart. Zobrist feels like a safe cash game play for $4000 and is a guy I am rolling out in my lineups.

Value

Anthony Rendon ($3700) – Talk about getting hot, Rendon has now gone 13 for his last 26. He also faces David Buchanon of the Phillies who has been one of the worst pitchers in baseball this year. Buchanon is definitely a guy we want to target bats against today and Rendon is on absolute fire with three straight multi-hit games. He also gets a park bump as they move this one to Philly, so he is definitely a guy I think you need to put on your radar today.

Third Base

Stud

Miguel Sano ($4900) – After seeing him pick up a couple hits the last two games, I think it is safe to roll Sano back into your lineups. We already know he has smashed right-handed pitching this season, and he faces Alfredo Simon here who has not pitched well at all in 2015. Sano is going to be back in his normal power spot of that order and has a good chance to go yard today against a guy who has been tagged with a bunch of long balls this year. I don’t like the matchups as much for the guys above him, and if I pay up at all, he will be the target.

Value

Justin Turner ($3600) – I say if I pay up, because I love Justin Turner and he seems to be back to producing good fantasy scores for cheap. He faces Chris Rusin, who has pitched better then the numbers suggest, but is still not a guy I would shy away from. Turner is a hits machine and he also has the ability to drive in and score runs from his lineup spot. He has 64 fantasy points in his last seven starts, so he averages over 9 a game. He has 3 multi-hit games and at least 7 points in 7 of those last 9 starts as well. For $3600, he is too cheap to ignore with double digit upside and a floor of 7, which will not kill you if that is all he does.

Shortstop

Stud

Carlos Correa ($5000) – It might be getting old to see my write this guy up, but he is clearly the best shortstop fantasy option by a mile. The pricing Algo’s agree as he is by himself at about $1000 more expensive than the rest of the field. He has a four game hit streak going where he has averaged over 10 fantasy points per contest. He faces a lefty today in Derek Hollland and Correa has absolutely owned left-handed pitching this year. Holland has been solid, but I think he has pitched well above his head so far. I have no problem rolling out Correa and think he will be a top option today.

Value

Javier Baez ($3600) – The free swinging Baez is a very hit or miss fantasy option, but he has done a lot of the hitting lately, so he is in play for me. He is 7 for his last 21 and has his preferred split against the Lefty Happ. I can almost guarantee he strikes out at least once, but with no negative points for the K, it does not matter. What matters is when he does hit the ball, he tends to hit it hard and that could lead to doubles, homers, and RBI if guys get on. All those would add up to a nice score for him at a very cheap price.

Outfield

Stud

Bryce Harper ($5900) – The name is being mentioned everywhere today, so I won’t go crazy and over analyze it here again. Harper is a left-handed bat who smashes right-handed pitching. Buchanon is one of the weaker pitchers in the whole league, not just on the Phillies. Philly is a great hitter’s park as well, and Harper has a bunch of multi-hit games against weak pitcher’s recently. The Nats get the park bump, the offense has been heating up, and if guys like Rendon can get on in front of him, I think he can do some serious damage today and justify the price tag.

Yeonis Cespedes ($5500) – Koehler is usually weaker against left-handed power hitter’s, but how can you not like Cespedes right now. In his last 8 starts, he has failed to reach the 13 fantasy point mark only once. He has homered in six of those last eight games as well, so he’s absolutely on fire. He is averaging over 17 points per game during this stretch. At 17 points per game, how can you leave him out of a lineup, even if the matchup is not ideal. Koehler is still not a superstar on the mound, so Cespedes can rack up some hits.

JD Martinez ($4300) – This is a perfect match up in my eyes. JD Martinez smashes right-handed pitcher for average and power. Phil Hughes is an extreme fly ball pitcher with bad numbers against right-handers. JD has a huge chance to go yard here today. He has also been really hot with 8 hits in his last 21 at-bats, which includes three straight multi-hit games. His price break from the studs is also enticing and he has made all of my first draft lineups so far.

Value

Scott Van Slyke ($36000 – It has not been as lucrative this year, but I always look for Van Slyke against a lefty and he faces one in Chris Rusin today. Over the last two seasons, Van Slyke has owned left-handed pitching, and the price here is just too cheap to ignore him. I’m sure when lineups come out we will see some young guys in good spots getting a chance, but for now the one cheap guy I have my eye on is Van Slyke. Hopefully he hits fifth today, which would be the green light I need to roll him out there.
