CATCHER:

Austin Barnes – Make sure he is in the lineup. Super cheap on FD and should be hitting 5th or 6th I would believe against Clayton Richard who is awful! .280 ISO / .386 wOBA / 32.4 HC%.

Alex Avila – Avila will get the starts at catcher for the time being with Wilson Contreras being on the DL. Avila has been really good with the bat this year and kills RHP. Again he is super cheap on FD and provides a lot of upside. .227 ISO / .381 wOBA / 50.0 HC%.

Manny Pina – Homer Bailey is really all I need to say! .161 ISO / .312 wOBA / 34.3 HC%.

FIRST BASE:

Freddie Freeman – Freeman is an animal and gets to tee off again Wainwright who is a disaster. .350 ISO / .459 wOBA / 35.5 HC%.

CJ Cron – The man has been on fire of late and will be facing a LHP who is absolute garbage. .333 ISO / .385 wOBA / 34.2 HC%.

Eric Thames – Homer Bailey! .276 ISO / .382 wOBA / 41.9 HC%.

SECOND BASE:

Daniel Murphy – The Nationals have the highest IRT right now! And we all know Murphy kills RHP. .257 ISO / .398 wOBA / 35.5 HC%.

Robinson Cano – Cano has 3 HR and a .502 wOBA against Nolasco. .221 ISO / .361 wOBA / 35.9 HC%.

Logan Forsythe – One of the best hitters against LHP over the years! .171 ISO / .400 wOBA / 34.3 HC%.

THIRD BASE:

Justin Turner – Has the highest batting average in the league and kills LHP. .368 ISO / .517 wOBA / 39.4 HC%.

Travis Shaw – Lefty against Homer Bailey why not lol. .273 ISO / .402 wOBA / 37.9 HC%.

Nicholas Castellanos – Kyle Gibson is awful and Castellanos has been in a groove of late! .159 ISO / .302 wOBA / 45.8 HC%.

SHORTSTOP:

Eduardo Nunez – Ever since being traded to the Red Sox Nunez has been on fuego and gets to face Jaime Garcia who is a trash can! .147 ISO / .344 wOBA / 27.0 HC%.

Andrelton Simmons – He’s been going under the radar since he plays on the Angels but he is having a terrific year all around. .156 ISO / .330 wOBA / 31.2 HC%.

Jorge Polanco – Another Shortstop going under the radar and he has been shocking good of late. .105 ISO / .293 wOBA / 26.5 HC%.

OUTFIELD:

Mike Trout / Chris Taylor / Michael Conforto 

VALUE (3K and under on FD)
