The second baseball game of the day has many more options to consider with 10 games on tap. The question is, do we want to promote Coors Field's big bats or safety in the arm of Jacob deGrom ($ 11,600)
Jacob deGrom, NYM vs. MIN, $ 11,600 – For the list tonight, I think that spending up to the pitcher makes more sense than spending on bats. There are a number of economic crimes on good points, but the same cannot be said for pitching. It is difficult to find many options to feel comfortable. In Jacob deGrom, we get the safest pitcher in baseball. Coming out of a historic Young Young campaign with a 1.70 WAS, deGrom has picked up where it left off and still has to allow a run earned this year. Somehow, his FIP is at -0.23 through two starts.
Other options – Gerrit Cole ($ 10,500), Aaron Nola ($ 9,400)
Marco Gonzalez, SEA at KCR, $ 7,600 – Gonzalez is not a raised option, but is rather safe. He rarely walks contact beaters and fields, which allows him to work in depth in games. This was shown in his last outing when he was able to go 8 1/3 innings against the Angels. He has won all three of his starts this season and averages 16.8 DKFP.
Other options – Jakob Junis ($ 7,200)
Yasmani Grandal, MIL a LAA, $ 4,200 – Give me all the lefties by going against Matt Harvey tonight. I've listed some for tonight and for good reason. Harvey is a shell of himself and blew himself up from left-handed bats last season. This season has not been better since it is allowing a .505 wOBA for left-handed people.
Other options – Gary Sanchez ($ 4300),
Chris Iannetta ($ 4,000)
Omar Narvaez, SEA to KCR, $ 3,400 – The Mariners' offense is rolling and Narvaez is constantly a part of the action in the middle of the ladder. He has at least one stroke and at least one race scored in six of his last seven games. Economic production is hard to find behind the plate, but Narvaez delivered it almost every night.
Other options – Buster Posey ($ 3,600)
Cody Bellinger, LAD at STL, $ 5,200 – During the first two weeks of the regular season, Bellinger was the best baseball batter. After a second year of crisis, Bellinger appears to be his newcomer when he set the record for most of the home matches hit by a first-year player. He runs all the baseball with seven homers in 11 games. This has him leading all the batsmen with an average of 18.8 DKFP for play.
Other options – Freddie Freeman ($ 5,100)
Trey Mancini, BAL vs. OAK TREE, $ 4,200 – The expectation was that the Orioles offensive would be a shipwreck this year, but so far they look decent (in addition to Chris Davis, who has not yet collected a success). Mancini is helping to keep the attack on five homers afloat in the last seven games. It has an average of 13.6 DKFP for the young season.
Other options – Edwin Encarnacion ($ 4,200),
Mark Reynolds ($ 4,200)
Jose Altuve, HOU vs. NYY, $ 4,500 – Altuve is rarely always that cheap and seems to be starting to find his swing after a slow start to the season. In his last two games, he picked up four hits and averaged 16.5 DKFP. L & # 39; inexperienced Jonathan Loaisiga ($ 6,900) could be leading in Houston tonight. He fought during his short time in the championships last year with a 5.11 WAS.
Other options – Ozzie Albies ($ 4,700), Whit Merrifield ($ 4,400)
Ketel Marte, ARI vs. TEX, $ 4,200 – Mars is a boom or bust option, but the positive side makes it interesting GPP. He has four games in the season with at least 17 DKFP, but scored 5.0 DKFP or less in the rest of his games. Mars rarely has much property in GPP, but his ceiling games are what win tournaments.
Other options – Robinson Cano ($ 3,900)
Nolan Arenado, COL vs. ATL, $ 5,300 – The only safe things in life are death, taxes and Nolan Arenado hitting the dongs out of the left-handed pitching at Coors Field. He was one of the best left-handed baseball destroyers last year with a 197 wRC + against left-handers and his number went through the roof when he was playing at home. Arenado had an average of .347 batting in Colorado last year for only .248 on the road.
Other options – Matt Chapman ($ 4,600), Manny Machado ($ 4,400)
Travis Shaw, MIL at LAA, $ 4,200 – He is another southpaw who faces Matt Harvey. The start of the season was not kind to Shaw, but he imagined being in line tonight with Milwaukee playing in the American League with a designated hitter. He has 30+ homer seasons and no better time for him to get back on track than Harvey's .505 against left-handed pitching.
Other options – Mike Moustakas ($ 4,200)
Trevor Story, COL vs. ATL, $ 5,100 – Just like with Arenado, Story destroys the left-handed pitching and is a better hitter at Coors Field. Last year, 26 of his 37 homers arrived in Colorado. The Rockies season started on the road and Story suffered. Now back home, he has three homers in his first four home games, including one last night.
Other options – Jonathan Villar ($ 4,600)
Corey Seager, LAD at STL, $ 4,100 – Returning from the intervention of Tommy John, Seager does not seem to have returned to form at all, but he seems to be beginning to understand it on his plate. He has two or more hits in three of his last four games, while his price still remains extremely cheap. I expect it to be one of the most expensive shortstops in any list in a short time.
NOTE OF THE EDITOR: Seager is not in the starting lineup for tonight's game.
Other options – Tim Beckham ($ 3,800)
Christian Yelich, MIL a LAA,$ 5,300 – In the offseason, it was right to wonder how beautiful Yelich would be this year. This does not mean that he would not be a good player, but the question was whether he could repeat last year MVP performance. So far, the answer is a resounding yes. It was very difficult to come out with a .490 OBP. His power has more than reported with a .475 ISO. Once again, stack Brewer's lefties in front of Harvey.
Other options – Mike Trout ($ 5,600), Khris Davis ($ 5,400)
Mallex Smith, SEA at KC, $ 4,100 – The Mariners are leading the baseball with a total of 98 points scored. Just to show how ridiculous their production is, the Phillies are fifth in the MLB with 57 points scored. As leadoff hitter, Smith is reaping the benefits of the high-powered offensive attack. He scored a run in every game except one this season and produces extra upside as a constant threat to steal the bases. He crawled two bags in his last departure.
Other options – Ian Desmond ($ 4,300), Nick Markakis ($ 4,000)
