Jake Lamb – Playing at home against a weak righty, the D-backs have a big run projection. Lamb is a solid hitter and has been hitting towards the top of the order lately, if he’s in the 2nd spot once again he’s one of the best values of the night.

Chase Utley – Utley is back and batting lead-off for the Phillies. He has a good match-up against Jeremy Hellickson and is playing at a fantastic hitters park in Chase Field.

Yasiel Puig – His matchup doesn’t stand out, but he’s way too good of a hitter to be priced at $2,800.

Jhonny Peralta – Peralta has a fantastic price and is facing a lefty as well. He’s by far the best value shortstop tonight.

High Salary

Paul Goldschimdt – Just way too good to be priced under $5,000, and the D-Backs have a ridiculous run projection. Goldy should play a big part in that.

Mike Trout – Trout doesn’t actually hit much better vs lefties, but U.S. Cellular Field is a great park for HRs, especially for right-handers. Trout also has a great SB match-up here, Carlos Rodon has been bad at holding runners.

Dee Gordon – He’s priced very, very well and has a solid match-up here.

A.J. Pollock – See the argument for Goldschimdt. Pollock is a great hitter, well priced, and his team is expected to play very well tonight.
