In a 1-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Monday night, the lone run came off the bat of 42-year old Albert Pujols, muscling a Drew Smyly pitch into the bleachers for career home run No. 693.

Sure enough, Pujols was on the board for yesterday's Daily Dinger selections, giving us a nice victory at BetSided to kick off the week!

For today, the entire team is finally all back together, giving us a total of five options to consider this Tuesday across a 16-game slate.

Francisco Lindor (+440) – New York Mets vs. New York Yankees

With the Yankees struggling right now, this is the perfect time to back the Mets in the Subway Series.

Lindor faces off against Frankie Montas today, who’s given up two home runs in his first three starts with the Yankees. His ERA is 9.00 in August and shouldn’t be trusted right now.

This game is at Yankee Stadium, which means everyone can take advantage of the short porch in right field – where a majority of his home runs have gone this season. – Donnavan Smoot

George Springer (+380) – Toronto Blue Jays at Boston Red Sox

George Springer and the Toronto Blue Jays have a favorable matchup on Tuesday, as they take on the Boston Red Sox and starter Josh Winckowski, who has struggled in the 2022 campaign. 

Winckowski was rocked for six runs by the lowly Pittsburgh Pirates in his last start, and since July 7, he’s given up nine home runs in seven starts. 

With a power-hitting lineup like the Blue Jays waiting on Tuesday, I’ll fade Winckowski in Daily Dinger and take Springer, who has 18 homers this season, to go deep at Fenway Park. After missing time earlier this month, Springer is on a five-game hitting streak with a slash line of .667/.688/.800. 

It’s hard to find a player hotter than him, and I think it lines up well for him to take a struggling starter like Winckowski deep. – Peter Dewey

Alex Bregman (+450) - Houston Astros vs. Minnesota Twins

I’ll be honest, I didn’t know that Aaron Sanchez was on the Minnesota Twins now. With that being said, I don’t care what team he’s on, I’ll fade him every chance I get.

He sports an ugly 7.68 ERA on the season, and he’s giving up an average of 1.5 home runs per nine innings pitched. This time around, I’ll back Alex Bregman of the Houston Astros to take him deep. 

Bregman is a far cry away from his 2019 season when he hit 41 dingers, but he still has some power and capability of going yard. He’s already hit five home runs this month, and I’ll back him to hit a sixth tonight. - Iain MacMillan

Julio Rodriguez (+310) - Seattle Mariners vs. Washington Nationals

J-Rod has been hitting nearly .300 since the start of August but the pop hasn’t been there as much, only one home run in 46 at bats. However, I think he has a favorable matchup against the soft tossing Erick Fedde and the shaky Nationals bullpen. 

With opposite field power and a .479 slugging percentage against right handed pitching, I think the AL Rookie of the Year front runner can jump on the Nats pitching staff and go deep in front of the home crowd. – Reed Wallach

Jonah Heim (+420) - Texas Rangers at Colorado Rockies

I’ll admit I didn’t know much about Jonah Heim. In fact, the first time I saw his name, I wondered if he was the long lost brother of the singing group, Haim, but realized the spelling was different.

What I do know, is that Heim has been very good this season with 13 home runs, and has a solid isolated power, or ISO of .188 and a hard hit rate near 42%.

His opponent, Rockies starter Germán Márquez has been awful at Coors Field; allowing just under two home runs per nine innings, but also allows more home runs per nine to right-handed than left-handers.

With Márquez having to deal with Semien, Seager, Lowe and others, at some point, he’ll have to throw to Heim, and I expect him to make him pay.
