Outfield, High End Spend
Aaron Judge, $4,900
.400/.500/1.000 with 1 HR in 5 at-bats
Man, it is really difficult to decide on which of the Yankee outfielders I’d rather have. They are basically the same price and if you want to play Didi and Rendon, you can really only afford to play one. I’ll side with Judge on this one. He has seen Tillman before and maybe that gives him a slight edge. Last year, Judge was better hitting the four seamer and Stanton was better hitting the cutter. Tillman throws the four seamer a bit more so we’ll side with Judge … I think.
In Consideration – Giancarlo Stanton, $4,800 and Yoenis Cespedes $4,000(unreal BvsP data, he owns Gio)
Gregory Polanco, $3,700
.167/.167/.167 with 0 HR in 6 at-bats
Anytime Charlie Blackmon draws a righty at home, he has to be at least in the conversation. It’s possible to jam him in but Polanco is also very attractive tonight as he’s been swinging a hot bat as well to start the season. He’s one of the main cogs in the Bucco attack and is possibly realizing some of his massive potential. Opposing pitcher Sal Romano just isn’t all that good in his career and Polanco can add a stolen base as well.
In Consideration – Khris Davis, $3,700 and Ender Inciarte, $3,800
Adam Jones, $3,400
.357/.357/.634 with 1 HR in 14 at-bats
The veteran outfielder for Baltimore has seen success off of Yankees starter Sonny Gray in their encounters. Jones is starting to slow down but is still hitting righties at a pretty solid clip and this could be another good day for him. I’ll likely still lean towards one of the players that are “In Consideration”, but it’s worth writing Jones up with his BvP data.
In Consideration – Brett Gardner, $3,000 and Marcell Ozuna, $3,700(BvP sticks out again, but is expensive)
Gerardo Parra, $3,200
.529/.579/.706 with 0 HR in 17 at-bats
Parra can tend to be the forgotten man in Colorado and that’s not terribly surprising considering his power isn’t where other players are. he could potentially be a nice pivot tonight as he has owned Anibal Sanchez in his career. His price is also super reasonable considering his situation. It might help that he hasn’t been hitting well because nobody will really be on him tonight.
In Consideration – Any outfielder from Pittsburgh, Colorado, and Atlanta is a fine play this evening
Michael A. Taylor, $2,600
.300/.417/.600 with 1 HR in 10 at-bats
The Nationals outfielder is fighting to keep Uber-prospect Victor Robles in AAA and he could have a good showing today. His power/speed potential makes fantasy players drool, as he could be one of the few players who could homer 25-plus times and steal at least 30 bases. He has struggled to hit so far but does already have three stolen bases. If he can start hitting a little better and find that power stroke, his points are going to pile up in a hurry.
In Consideration – Carlos Gomez, $2,400
Jesse Winker, $2,300
.000/.000/.000 with 0 HR in 6 at-bats
We played him yesterday and got solid return with over 12 FanDuel points. Winker had a three hit night and should wind up leading off again tonight at a near minimum price. He has utterly destroyed right handed pitching in his career to the tune of a .333 batting average, 1.007 OPS and a .426 wOBA. Regardless of the very small BvP data, I’m all over Winker again tonight.
