Low Salary

Jonathan Lucroy – Against a bad lefty at home, Lucroy would be a quality play at any price. At $2,300, he’s an absolutely must play in cash.

Jean Segura – Same argument as Lucroy here, Segura is batting lead-off for the Brewers.

Josh Reddick – You may be surprised to see Reddick here with his team possessing such a low run projections, but park factor and price seem to play a huge part here. Camden Yards is a great park for lefties and he’s way too good of a hitter to be priced at $2,300.

Brandon Guyer – Leading off vs a lefty, Guyer has a great spot in the order and a great match-up. He’s also playing at a much better hitters park than he’s used to in Texas. His teams big run projection certainly helps here as well.

High Salary

Matt Kemp – His price is jacked up for Coors Field, but it’s not quite high enough clearly as he comes in at the top of our high salary projections. Kemp faces a lefty which makes his point projection off the charts.

Justin Upton – His salary is a little higher than Kemp’s, but he’s also a better hitter. He’s up there for the same reasons as all the Padres righties.

Ryan Braun – Braun is up here for the same reason Lucroy and Segura are so well projected as low salary hitters, he has a fantastic match-up and solid price here.

Mookie Betts – He’s facing a lefty and his team’s run projection is close to 5. And he’s leading off. His price isn’t fantastic but those other factors are very strong, making him one of the best high salary values tonight.
