It is Monday and there is an 11 game slate tonight with some very solid pitching, Kershaw and Kluber are both over 10k and Lester and Cueto are in the high 9k range. This article will help fit in one of these 4 higher priced pitching options and or some expensive bats as these plays are 3k and under on FanDuel, but can be used on any site.
Russell Martin (Tor) $2200
Martin has been hitting the ball well as of late with 2 HRs in his last 4 games. He hits well vs RHPs with a .354 wOBA and has warm weather in a nice hitters park tonight.
Yasmani Grandal (LAD) $3000
Grandal hits very well vs RHP with a .370 wOBA and .270 ISO and faces Zach Wheeler tonight who is allowing 1.88 HRs/9 to LHHs. This is a good matchup for Grandal to get back on track.
Manny Pina (Mil) $2200
Pina has hits in 4 of his last 5 games with 2 HRs in that time frame. He also hits very well vs RHP with a .365 wOBA and .204 ISO.
Derek Norris (TB) $2400
Norris has solid BvP vs Scott Feldman going 6 for 14(.429) with a HR.
Josh Bell (Pit) $2900
The Pirates face Matt Garza who allows a .352 to LHHs. Bell has power .228 ISO, hits well .350 wOBA vs RHP and has solid BvP vs Garza.
Danny Valencia (Sea) $3000
This is an excellent matchup for the Mariners as Anibal Sanchez has been absolutely terrible. He was a starter for most of last year and struggled more vs RHHs allowing a .372 wOBA and 2.27 HRs/9. Sanchez moved to the bullpen for the start of this year and has been worse vs RHHs with a .502 wOBA and 4.91 HRs/9. This is a great spot for the Mariners RHHs as they should rake against Sanchez at home tonight.
Brandon Belt (SF) $3000
Lefties do well in SunTrust Park amen Dickey has been getting smacked around as of late. Belt has a .343 wOBA and .222 ISO vs RHP this season.
Joe Panik (SF) $2800
Panik has hits in 7 games straight now going 14 for 30(.467) and 2 HRs over that time frame. The Giants are in a park that has shown to favor LHHs and they face Dickey tonight who has been pretty bad as of late. Panik is in a very good spot and I like his chances of going yard tonight. He will also have very low ownership.
Chase Utley (LAD) $2300
Utley is a cheap lead off option on a hot hitting Dodger team. The Dodger LHHs are in a good spot vs Wheeler tonight.
*Best plays at 3B are priced up, but here are some punt plays with good matchups that could pay off.
Cheslor Cuthbert (KC) $2400
This spot start for Hector Valasquez equals a good opportunity for the Royals bats. Cuthbert should do well in this matchup.
Alex Bregman (Hou) $3000
Cheaper exposure to Astros as the face Daniel Gossett.
Brandon Crawford (SF) $3000
Crawford is coming off a nice series in Colorado going 6 for 14 with 2 HRs and 2 doubles. He gets to face R.A. Dickey tonight, who has given up 19 runs over his last 4 starts, in a stadium that has favored LHHs.
Addison Russell (CHC) $2900
Russell crushed LHP with a .372 wOBA and .262 ISO and he has been hitting the ball 20 ft. further and 21% harder over the last 15 days,
Lonnie Chisenhall (Cle) $2700

Jake Marisnick (Hou) $2600
Excellent matchup for the Astros and Marisnick as he owns a .458 wOBA and .420 ISO vs RHP. Power/speed upside here.
Mallex Smith (TB) $2600
Cheap lead off hitter with speed. Smith runs and Feldman has allowed 10 steals this year, Good chance he swipes a few bags.
Trey Mancini (Bal) $2800
Mancini has crushed RHP this year with a .433 wOBA and .313 ISO and yes he is facing Kluber, who will give up a few runs tonight.
Derek Fisher (Hou) $2200
