Cashner (R)$4000$5500$25See below UPGRADEHunter Wood, SP, Rays vs. Orioles. Wood is the opener for Tampa tonight, but he could rack up two-plus innings and a number of strikeouts versus a bad Orioles lineup. He is only $4K on DraftKings, which allows you to spend more money on offense. Seriously, this pitching slate is bad.Jonathan Lucroy, C, Angels vs. Mariners. Lucroy has been one of the few catchers in baseball that is hitting for average, and he gets a solid matchup today with King Felix. Lucroy doesn’t have much upside, but he has a decent floor for a catcher and is very cheap.MORE: Fantasy Alarm PRO ToolsLuke Voit, 1B, Yankees vs. Royals. Voit has been up and down all season, but the power in the bat is undeniable. He has a great matchup today versus Homer Bailey and is guaranteed to be in the lineup because the Yankees have no one left.Cesar Hernandez, 2B, Phillies @ Rockies. Hernandez blasted a homer yesterday and appears to be turning things around. With Jean Segura hurt, Cesar should bat higher in the order than he has been, so this is a good time to use him, especially in cash games where his floor is high.Tim Beckham, SS, Mariners @ Angels. Beckham has slowed down in the power department since his early-season barrage, but he is still hitting for average and there is obviously power in the bat. He has hit the majority of his home runs away from Seattle, and today he is on the road versus Chris Stratton and is pretty cheap. OFUPGRADE UPGRADEOFUPGRADE CJ. Lucroy (R)[email protected] 10:07F.

What he does do is get on base. He has a nice matchup in a great park today, making him a solid playCody Bellinger, Dodgers @ Brewers. Bellinger returned to the lineup yesterday after sitting out a day with a sore knee. Since he is now good to play, he should be in your lineup if you can afford him. Only Christian Yelich has been hotter this year. Bellinger is hitting .429 with a 1.412 OPS and nine home runs and is playing in Miller Park today.For more player recommendations and analysis, become a Fantasy Alarm subscriber today! UPGRADE2BC.

The pitching is rough (as highlighted in these SP rankings), so I don’t I will play a ton on DraftKings given the pitchers onthe main slate, but if I do, I will likely pay up..Watch ChangeUp, a new MLB live whip-around show on DAZN last_img
