Low Salary

Justin Smoak – His price is absurd given his skill and his teams run projection. He may be batting 6th but is still the best value of the night.

John Jaso – Tampa Bay isn’t exactly a hitters park, but leading off against a poor pitcher at this price makes Jaso great value tonight.

Rusney Castillo – Batting 2nd and facing a lefty, Castillo is priced way too well tonight to be passed up on.

Michael Bourn – He’s a bit under-the-radar tonight, but his 2800 price tag leading off for the Braves makes Bourn a compelling play.

High Salary

David Peralta – He has a fantastic price on DraftKings and should be in the heart of the order for the D-backs facing a bad right-handed pitcher.

Jose Bautista – Nothing really stands out for Bautista tonight, but he’s a beast and is facing a poor pitcher. He’s also a lowball hitter, so he should fare well against Graveman’s sinker.

Troy Tulowitzki – He’s priced very well, is a great hitter, and leading off. He’s an easy play tonight.

Mike Trout – This is all about the park factor. Trout is at a great HR park for righties and has a nice SB match-up as well. Carlos Rodon has been awful at holding baserunners.
