1. LOS ANGELES DODGERS

The Dodgers are projected for a slate-high 5.2 runs facing Mike Foltynewicz of the Braves. The right handed Foltynewicz has gotten slammed by LHB so far this season, allowing them to hit .316 with eight homers and 10 doubles thus far. The Dodgers lineup thrives against righties, but you can also use Dodgers’ RHB against a guy like Foltynewicz as well.

Players to Consider

  • Cody Bellinger ($5,400)
  • Corey Seager ($5,000)
  • Justin Turner ($4,800)
  • Joc Pederson ($4,000)
  • Chris Taylor (4,800)
  • Logan Forsythe ($3,900)


2. TEXAS RANGERS

The Rangers are set to face Wade Miley in Baltimore tonight, a pitcher they’ve hit very well in the past. They’re projected for five runs against the LHP, whom this lineup is 43-for-153 against (.281) with 12 doubles, two triples and five long balls. Jonathan Lucroy is of particular interest, as he’s 5-for-13 with a double and two homers against Miley in his career.

Players to Consider

  • Adrian Beltre ($4,400)
  • Mike Napoli ($4,000)
  • Jonathan Lucroy ($3,300)
  • Carlos Gomez ($3,800)
  • Elvis Andrus ($4,400)
  • Shin-Soo Choo ($3,900)


3. DETROIT TIGERS

The Tigers’ lineup is stacked with RHB, which creates an ideal situation when going up against a LHP like Danny Duffy — who has the majority of damage done to him by righties. Tigers’ bats are hitting .262 against him lifetime, but some individual bats have had most of the significant production. Justin Upton and Ian Kinsler have both homered off Duffy twice, while Victor Martinez is 12-for-35 (.343) against him with a double and three bombs.

Players to Consider

  • Victor Martinez ($3,500)
  • Justin Upton ($4,300)
  • Ian Kinsler ($4,500)
  • Nick Castellanos ($4,300)
  • Mikie Mahtook ($3,400)
  • Jose Iglesias ($3,000)
