Today’s Main Slate Picks


Marcel Ozuna – OF/Mia($3,900) – Hasn’t homered since 5/8, will be lower owned vs Ryu. Ryu is a better pitcher vs LHB than righties an Ozuna slugs .571 vs LHP.

Jose Bautista – OF/Tor($3,800) – He is on fire, play him while he is; there is talk that their might be a “fight” tonight in this game, so hopefully he doesn’t get ejected since his bat flip might be the reason.

J.T. Realmuto – C/Mia($2,800) – Slugs .783 vs lefties with 2 homers in 23 at bats.  Bonus if he hits lead off tonight


Marcus Stroman – Tor($9,200) – No Freeman for Atl tonight(out 8-10 weeks) gives Stroman a good match up vs. a very weak Atl lineup.  Averages 6.1 innings per start and almost 60% of contact by opposing hitters are ground balls.

Sam Gaviglio – Sea($5,500) – Rookie, only pitched 2 innings this year out of the bullpen; very risky but perfect for GPP.  Averaged 6.6 Ks/9 in AAA.


Matt Joyce – OF/Oak($2,900) – Joyce is a specialist vs RHP, but would you believe that other than home runs, Joyce has hit LHP better this season?
