Pitchers - Johnny Cueto has been having minor arm problems but threw a bullpen session Sunday and will toe the rubber tonight for the Reds facing the Phillies. Cueto has been on the wrong side of getting wins this year at 3-4 but in as absolute workhorse who goes deep into games and has high strikeout upside. A.J Burnett is facing the Giants tonight and makes for a nice GPP play. Burnett is 5-1 on the season with 59 strikeouts and has seemed to find his form being back in Pittsburgh this season. On the flip side of Burnett, Chris Heston could be the sneaky cheap play of the night, Heston carries a 5-3 record with 49 strikeouts on the year. 

Catcher - Russell Martin has a tough match up tonight against Scherzer but Martin has five hits in his last four games and makes for a fine play this evening. Miguel Montero went 0-4 last night, but I think I am going to be going back to the well. The catcher position tonight is a little bit of a dart throw. 

1st Base - Brandon Moss has seven hits in his last four games and has a favorable match up tonight facing Guthrie of the Royals. Another Indians player who can be filled in at first I like is Carlos Santana, who I believe will be in the lineup this evening. 

2nd Base - Jason Kipnis only has one game without a hit since May 21st, if you are seeing the trend here I like a lot of Indians tonight. I am still on the Justin Turner train who didn't perform bad last night collecting one hit and two runs scored for the Dodgers. Jace Peterson could be a low owned option in a GPP he has had a really solid three game stretch coming into the game tonight. 

3rd Base - Nolan Arenado is on an absolute tear who has six homers in his last eight games, but I am going to fade Arenado this evening. I wont discourage anyone who rosters him I am just not going back to the well this evening, I like Kyle Seager as a cheaper option tonight facing Sabathia who has been struggling all year long to be productive. 

Shortstop - Hanley Ramirez is going to cost a pretty penny but looks to be the best option at short tonight, Hanley six hits in his last four games and looks to be getting hot. I mentioned Andrelton Simmons last night and he didn't disappoint collecting three hits and a run scored, Simmons is really affordable across the industry and makes for a fine play. 

Outfield - All of the Michael Brantley tonight, I will have more of Brantley than anyone else this evening in the outfield. If Brantley is going to hit a homer anytime soon tonight, is the night. George Springer of the Astros is in a good spot tonight for a GPP play. A lot of people were off Adam Jones last night, who didn't have a great game but is always a threat to go off and a guy I will have exposure to again this evening. Marlon Byrd is a solid cheaper option tonight in the outfield, he hasn't done much lately but gets a favorable match up tonight. 

This will wrap up our article for the slate this evening, as always enjoy your night, and good luck with your lineups tonight!
