With that being said, here are some players to roster, and others to avoid, in your effort to win daily fantasy baseball games.
Shin-Soo Choo – Mad Max Scherzer may have been unbeaten (4-0) in May, but he was anything but dominant (4.04 ERA). Choo comes into action today with 8 hits in 14 career at bats against the Tigers flame throwing righty and has reached base in nearly 67% of his plate appearances. Scherzer has the ability to get out of jams via K, but he has only struck out Choo one time. Look for Choo to lead the charge in what figures to be a high scoring game.
Michael Young – For my money, Young is one of the better pure hitters in the game today, and that should be made obvious when he faces Bartolo Colon tonight. Young holds a .357 career average against the A’s starter, only striking out once every 9 at bats against Colon. I like the Rangers to score in bunches, with Young scoring multiple runs and knocking in at least one.
Players to avoid:
Matt Holliday – The Cardinal OF has been a solid play lately, but he runs into a tough draw tonight. He faces Bud Norris, who has held the powerful righty to a .259 average and has struck Holliday out as many times as he has given up a hit. Norris’ ERA is 6.2 runs lower at home, making this game a sure bet to be low scoring. There are plenty of OF options that will cost far less than $130,000 in salary cap fantasy baseball games that I prefer to Holliday today, don’t spend the big bucks here.
Rickie Weeks – The Brewers smash the ball on a nightly basis, but for some unknown reason, Weeks struggles against Paul Maholm. Tonight’s starter has held Weeks to a .190 average and only one extra base hits. Milwaukee may hang a crooked number on the average starter, but their second basemen figures to be more of a spectator than a contributor.
Brian McCann – The Braves catcher McCan’t hit Josh Johnson, and that trend figures to continue when the two matchup later tonight. McCann boasts a career .222 average against the Marlins ace and is banged up after taking a foul ball off the knee this weekend. He isn’t the Catcher you want for today’s full slate.
