Fuego Steve’s MLB Plays of the Day

Pitchers - Best options

With 11 games on the slate, you would think there would be at least one stud pitcher. Yet there is no pitcher over $10k on Fanduel and only two on DraftKings, who I don’t really consider studs now in Robbie Ray and Madison Bumgarner. Ray is coming off the DL and apparently a little earlier than expected. I don’t see him pitching too deep in to the game. Though it is the Marlins so he could be ok. But I don’t want to pay the extra price. MadBum definitely has upside, but not sure it’s worth the price tonight either. It’s one of those nights for pitchers. Lots of ok options, nothing great or standing out.

Kyle Freeland, Ivan Nova, and Jack Flaherty are my favorite options. I don’t mind Kyle Gibson either as he has pitched well over the past month.

Favorite Stacks

Boston Red Sox – Righties, though Benny and Moreland are fine as part of a stack

Seattle Mariners – Prefer the lefties, but I like this game to be high scoring

Baltimore Orioles – 1-6 in the lineup

St. Louis Cardinals – Prefer top of order

Oakland A’s – I should just leave them in my Favorite Stacks permanently

Position plays of the day

Catcher – J.R. Murphy, John Hicks, Yadier Molina, Sandy Leon - value

1st Base – Matt Olson, Jose Martinez, Cody Bellinger, Carlos Santana, Joe Mauer - value

2nd Base – Dee Gordon, Yoan Moncada, Brian Dozier, Jonathan Schoop - value

3rd Base – Matt Carpenter, Jed Lowrie, Kyle Seager, Luis Valbuena - value

SS – Manny Machado, Xander Bogarts, Tim Anderson, Ehire Adrianza - value

Outfield – Mark Trumbo, J.D. Martinez, Manuel Margot, Matt Joyce, Dustin Fowler, Joc Pederson, Mookie, Adam Jones, Hunter Renfroe, Leonys Martin

Lots of outfielders under $3k on Fanduel as usual, including half the ones I listed.

As usual hit me in Slack chat an hour before lock with lineup questions and updated weather information.
