1. LOS ANGELES DODGERS

This couldn’t be a better situation for the Dodgers. There’s not really much you need to know here aside from the simple facts: They’re facing an RHP (Tyler Chatwood) with an ERA of 5.40 at home and 7.16 in night games, and they’re at Coors Field where they’re projected for 5.9 runs and the wind should be blowing out strong to center. Chatwood’s already allowed nine homers this season, so stack away.

Players to Consider

  • Cody Bellinger ($4,900)
  • Corey Seager ($5,500)
  • Yasmani Grandal ($4,500)
  • Justin Turner ($5,100)
  • Joc Pederson ($4,900)
  • Chris Taylor ($4,400)


2. ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS

The D-Backs are in the friendly confines of Chase Field tonight, where they’ve been the best home team offensively across MLB. They’ll be facing RHP Tyler Glasnow, who has a 6.33 ERA entering tonight’s game. LHB are hitting over .300 against him, but RHBs aren’t far behind at .279. Overall, Glasnow allows a .400 on-base percentage, so you can use hitters from both sides of the plate.

Players to Consider

  • Paul Goldschmidt ($5,300)
  • Jake Lamb ($4,600)
  • A.J. Pollock ($4,500)
  • David Peralta ($3,700)
  • Yasmany Tomas ($4,100)
  • Chris Owings ($4,000)

3. NEW YORK METS

The Mets are playing at hitter-friendly Miller Park tonight, going up against RHP Matt Garza. While the headline might be Matt Harvey taking the mound, the Mets’ offense is in a great spot tonight. Garza’s been a blast from the past this season with a cool 2.55 ERA in the early going. However, he’s still only pitched 17.2 innings, and LHB are murdering him to the tune of a .346 average and both home runs he’s allowed this season. The Mets are loaded with lefties, many of which have done damage to Garza in the past — Bruce (12-for-33, 4 doubles, 3 HR), Granderson (9-for-30, 4 doubles, HR), Cabrera (2-for-8, 2 HR).

Players to Consider

  • Jay Bruce ($4,600)
  • Curtis Granderson ($3,700)
  • Asdrubal Cabrera ($4,100)
  • Michael Conforto ($4,300)
  • Neil Walker ($4,300)
  • Jose Reyes ($4,200)


4. CHICAGO CUBS

The Cardinals are projected to beat the Cubs in St. Louis, but I’m not sleeping on Chicago here. RHP Mike Leake has had trouble with the heart of the Cubs’ order in the past, so four projected runs feels low to me. Bryant is 9-for-20 with a couple extra-base hits against Leake, Zobrist is 4-for-13 with a pair of doubles and a homer, while Rizzo is an outrageous 15-for-40 with two bombs on six extra-base hits.

Players to Consider

  • Anthony Rizzo ($4,900)
  • Kris Bryant ($4,800)
  • Ben Zobrist ($4,100)
  • Kyle Schwarber ($4,300)
  • Jon Jay ($3,500)
  • Javier Baez ($3,700)


5. TAMPA BAY RAYS

When there are 15 games you’ve got to consider some contrarian stacks. While the Red Sox could be a popular one in their return to Fenway from a road trip, I’m looking at the Rays on the other side. The reigning Cy Young Award winner just always seems to struggle with Tampa, which has five hitters on the current roster that hit over .300 against him in 10 or more at bats. The list is highlighted by Brad Miller, who is 7-for-23 with two doubles and four home runs and doesn’t even include Evan Longoria, who is 11-for-47 with four doubles and a long ball.

Players to Consider

  • Brad Miller ($4,000)
  • Logan Morrison ($3,600)
  • Corey Dickerson ($3,900)
  • Steven Souza ($3,800)
  • Evan Longoria ($3,900)
  • Colby Rasmus ($3,700)
