Line Up Thoughts: I like Luis Severino ($9,200) against the free swinging Reds. He has the potential to go 6 plus innings and punch out 6-8 batters. Zack Wheeler ($9,700) is 8-4 on the season with a 2.46 ERA. He has 104 strikeouts on the season and he faces a Toronto line up that has a lot of swing and miss hitters in its line up. It is also a line up that has struggled of late.
Francisco Meija is a quality play at $2,900. He has done pop in his bat and I like the match up against Red Sox starter John Winkowski.
The Orioles have won nine in a row and their line up is raking right now. Both Ryan Mountcastle ($3600) and Ramon Urias ($2,700) are terrific value plays against the Cubs at hitter friendly Wrigley Field tonight.
Kyle Farmer ($2,800) is an affordable, cheap option for me at shortstop. I don’t love the Severino match up but Farmer has been a consistent point producer this season.
I stacked the Yankees against Reds veteran lefty Mike Minor. Aaron Judge ($6,300), Giancarlo Stanton ($5,400), D.J LeMahieu ($4,600) and Joey Gallo ($2,700) are all solid plays. Gallo as a lefty on lefty match up concerns me but at that price, he was worth taking a flyer on.
