Hope you all had a great weekend, today we have a 7 game main slate tonight on Fanduel, so lets get to it.

Bats

Cody Bellinger – 1B/LAD($3,300) – Crushes RHP, Fly ball rate of 50% vs a pitcher (Matt Cain) who allows 39% fly balls and 1.57 HR/9 innings.

Matt Kemp – OF/ATL($3,900) – Kemp has been cold lately and also faces a RHP, but he has 5 HR’s and is slugging .574 this season vs righties.

Austin Hedges – C/SDP($2,500) – Faces righty Chase Anderson(.232 iso vs RHB) today,  has 7 Hrs vs. RHP and only cost $2,500.  I like him as a low cost catcher option.

Arms

Brandon McCarthy – LAD ($8,700) – Strikes out 7.8 hitters/9 innings, xFIP 3.77 and AT&T park is a pitchers park.  First game back from separated shoulder injury on May 5, so there is some risk.

Sean Manaea – OAK($7,900) – Risky today but averages about 10 k’s/9 and is striking out 25.7% of the hitters he has faced this season.  Safeco is also pitcher friendly.  Has not pitched in the Majors since 4/26/17 due to a shoulder injury.

Jesse Chavez – LAA($7,700) – As you can see, pitching is pretty bad today and Chavez is my last recommendation.  The White Sox strike out 23.3% of the time and Chavez has averaged 5.3 innings per start in 8 starts this year.

Duds

Yasmani Grandal – C/LAD($2,900) – Grandal hits RHP very well, but he can’t hit Matt Cain (1 for 10 in his career ).  Small sample size, but I would much rather go with Hedges at a discount today.

Robinson Cano – 2B/SEA($4,200) – Cano hasn’t hit LHP well this year and that trend will continue today.

Zack Goodley – P/AZ($7,500) – Goodley has had two decent starts (averaging 6 innings with a 2.25 ERA); Mets hit RHP well and they will touch up Goodley tonight.

 

Good Luck!
