C:

 

Salvador Perez- I love his matchup against a struggling Jon Lester. Lester comes into this game with a 5.57 ERA and only 57 Ks in 17 Starts. The Royals just faced Lester on Sunday and put up 5 ERs against him. 
 
 

Best Value Plays:

 

Will Smith

Sean Murphy

Yadier Molina


 

1B:

 

Vlad Guerrero Jr- Absolutely LOVE him against Kikuchi in this matchup. He hasn’t hit a HR since August 8th, but he is coming off of a double-digit performance last night. Don’t be surprised to see Vladdy joining that HR column at least once today in that box score.

 

 

Best Value Plays:

 
 
Matt Olson
 
Carlos Santana
 
Josh Bell
 

 

2B:

 

Max Muncy- Muncy has been a bulldog all season long. Last night’s game saw Muncy go 2 for 5 with a single and a double. It’s been too many ABs without a HR and that needs to change tonight.

 

Best Value Plays:

 

Jed Lowrie

Tommy Edman

Ian Happ

 


3B:

 

Rafael Devers- Going back to the well with Devers today. He has a plus matchup against Orioles’ Jorge Lopez. Devers has only faced Lopez 4 ABs but his 2 hits are HRs. Think he goes under-owned in this matchup and he’ll be in my lineups today.

 

 

Best Value Plays:

 

Jeff McNeil

Yoan Moncada

Emmanuel Rivera

 
 

 

SS:

 
 
Corey Seager- Love me some Seager and LAD stack today. Seager faces Taijuan Walker who he’s only seen for 13 ABs. He has 4 hits including a HR against Walker. 6 out of his last 10 games Seager has had PLUS results. Looking for another double-digit FP game out of Seager and wouldn’t be surprised if he’s in the Top 5 scoring SS tonight.
 
 

Best Value Plays:

 

Tyler Wade
 
Amed Rosario
 
Brendan Rodgers

 

OF:

 
 
 
Starling Marte
 
Nick Castellanos
 
Enrique Hernandez
 
Kyle Schwarber
 
J.D. Martinez
 
George Springer
 
Bryce Harper
 
Yordan Alvarez
 
Eloy Jimenez
 
Tommy Pham

Tyler O’Neill
 
Alex Verdugo
 
Brett Gardner

REMEMBER: These are lineups we use but feel free to pick and choose plays and make your own lineups. Don’t ALWAYS follow these as they don’t hit 100% of the time. We do use these but sometimes late scratches happen and it’s too late to update the lineup. Good luck and bring home the bacon.
