June 5th MLB Top Plays



Tonight in the MLB we have a nice large slate to go after, with 15 total games, you should have total flexibility in your roster creation. Selecting pitchers leaves a little to be desired tonight, actually a lot to be desired. This should be a really high scoring fun night in the MLB.

Pitcher - At first glance I think a lot of people are going to gravitate towards Tyson Ross, I am a little off Ross today. Ross is 2-5 on the year, with 71 strikeouts, which is encouraging but hasn't had anything eye popping in his last three starts for the Padres. I think I am going to be off Carlos Martinez tonight as well, Martinez has a tough match up against the Dodgers tonight and his price point across the industry is keeping me away from him. So now you are probably wondering who I do like tonight on the mound, well the answer isn't simple but at the moment I am really on Tim Lincecum. Lincecum is 5-3 on the year and has a favorable match up against the Phillies tonight. The strikeouts are down for Lincecum which is a concern but if he is going to have a solid night, I am willing to bet its tonight. Jake Ordorizzi is another guy I am on tonight for the Rays. The Mariners just aren't scoring runs right now and Ordorizzi could be in line for a solid game and a win tonight. 

Catcher - I have been preaching I rarely if ever pay up for a catcher but tonight Buster Posey gets to face Jerome Williams in a match up I want exposure to. I am predicting a monster night for Posey this evening. If I don't go all in on Posey i will split my lineups with Francisco Cervelli. Cervelli has eight hits in his last six starts and the Pirates have been scoring runs, a multiple RBI night is coming for Cervelli. 

1st Base - Brandon Belt, like Posey gets to face Jerome Williams in another match up I want exposure to. Belt comes into tonight with a five game hitting streak, and I see that extending to six after tonight. Justin Bour or Jeff Baker of the Marlins whoever gets the start tonight will be a cheap salary relief option both have home run and RBI upside tonight playing at Coors. 

2nd Base - Neal Walker comes into tonight riding a seven game hitting streak and makes for a solid cash game play. The same could be said for Brandon Phillips who has multiple hits in each of his last four games. Wilmer Flores of the Mets also has a nice hitting streak of six games and I guy I can get behind plugging into your roster tonight. 

3rd Base - Matt Carpenter has been getting on base and scoring runs for the Cardinals lately and a guy I want to target tonight. Obviously, Josh Donaldson is always in play but he costs a pretty penny. Depending on how you handle pitching, tonight could be easier than most to roster Donaldson in a lot of lineups. Maybe tonight will be the night Evan Longoria will find a way to have a productive night, at his price point its been hard to not roster him lately. 

Shortstop - Jhonny Peralta has eight hits in his last five games and is a great option in cash or GPP tonight. I am all in on Giants tonight so Brandon Crawford will be my top play at short, Crawford has two homers in his last four games and hard to ignore tonight facing Jerome Williams. 

Outfield - Giancarlo Stanton playing at Coors, sign me up, for a lot of exposure here tonight. Stanton has homered in his last two games and is heating up at the plate with hits in his last three games. Another Giant I can get behind is Hunter Pence, he just gets the job done one way or another. Pence had a quiet series against the Pirates but I like him to find his form tonight. A guy I have mentioned a lot lately about getting on is Adam Jones, well Jones has been solid over his last two games. I can get behind some shares of Adam Jones tonight. 

-This will wrap my piece for the night in the MLB. Good luck too all in growing your bankroll and as always enjoy your night, cheers to the weekend!
