C:

 

Salvador Perez– I’m loving this matchup against J.A. Happ. In 26 PA Perez has 11 hits including 1 double and 5 HRs against him. Will have a lot of exposure to him today.
 
 

Best Value Plays:

 

Travis d’Arnaud

Yadier Molina

Yan Gomes


 

1B:

 

Bobby Dalbec- he’s been absolutely dominating the past 3 games. He has had 40.9, 37.7, and 44.9 FP in his last three games and now he’s facing a lefty in Akins today. he’s 7/11 with 3 HRs, 2 doubles, and 1 triple in those games. 

 

 

Best Value Plays:

 
Brandon Belt
 
Jeimer Candelario
 
Jonathan Schoop
 

 

2B:

 

Whit Merrifield- The trend will continue here as I LOVE a nice Kc stack against J.A. Happ. The good thing here is you can use Merrifield at either the 2B or OF position in your lineups. Love me some Whit not only because of this reason, but because he’s a leadoff hitter who should get a minimum of 4 ABs today and he is almost guaranteed to steal a base or two.

 

 

Best Value Plays:

 

Tommy Edman

Aledmys Diaz

Mike Moustakas

 


3B:

 

 

Hunter Dozier-  while he hasn’t done much in the first 2 games against the Cardinals, he’s just too cheap for me to avoid in a KC stack in this game against Happ. He’s both 3B and OF eligible so the versatility is there yet again. I’ll be building multiple lineups today and KC will be in a few.

 

Best Value Plays:

 

Yoan Moncada
 
David Bote
 
Emmanuel Rivera
 

 

SS:

 
Tim Anderson- He’s one of the top SS in the game today and has a matchup against the Yankees’ Nester Cortes. He didn’t really do anything in yesterday’s game where he went 1 for 6 with a single but he’s always a threat as he’s a dangerous leadoff hitter. Should be good for 4+ ABs again on Sunday.
 
 

Best Value Plays:

 

Amed Rosario
 
J.P. Crawford
 
Luis Urias

 

OF:

 
 
Charlie Blackmon
 
Christian Yelich
 
Enrique Hernandez
 
Franmil Reyes
 
Nelson Cruz
 
Michael Brantley
 
Mark Canha
 
Jordan Luplow
 
Juan Soto
 
Lorenzo Cain
 
Kyle Schwarber
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Best Value Plays:

 
 
Tyrone Taylor
 
Hunter Renfroe
 
Tyler O’Neill
 
Ian Happ
 
Eric Haase
 
Trey Mancini
 
Andrew Benintendi
 
Andrew McCutchen

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.
