P- Tanner Roark (vs. Philadelphia Phillies): $9,300. Roark has dominated the Phillies this year. In four starts against Philadelphia, Roark has a 0.64 ERA. In his last start against the Phils, he went seven scoreless innings. Over his last three starts, he has a 1-2 record, 3.18 ERA, and 12 strikeouts in 17 innings pitched.
P- Yordano Ventura (vs. Chicago White Sox): $8,600. Over Ventura's last three starts, he has a 2-0 record with a 2.20 ERA. He has struggled with control at times, but if he can limit his walks, he has the potential to put up a huge game on Friday. In 115 career at bats against Ventura, the White Sox offense is batting .209, with a .264 OBP, and 29 strikeouts.
C- Stephen Vogt (vs. Hisashi Iwakuma): $3,200. In 23 career at bats against Iwakuma, Vogt is batting .304 with a .348 slugging percentage. After spending a good amount on pitching, I've decided to go with a cheap option at catcher.
1B- Edwin Encarnacion (vs. Rick Porcello): $3,900. In 34 career at bats against Porcello, Encarnacion is batting .382, with eight extra base hits, three home runs, and a .400 OBP.
2B- Brian Dozier (vs. Danny Salazar): $5,400. In 23 career at bats against Salazar, Dozier is batting .478, with seven extra base hits, two home runs, and a .520 OBP. Over his last 10 games, Dozier is batting .364 with nine home runs.
3B- Alex Bregman (vs. Jon Lester): $3,800. Over his last 10 games, Bregman is batting .318, with two home runs, 10 RBIs, nine runs, .362 OBP, and a .568 slugging percentage. He has a tough matchup against Lester, but he should fair well against a left-handed pitcher.
SS- Alcides Escobar (vs. Carlos Rodon): $3,100. Escobar's career splits favor him against left-handed pitching. Over his last seven games, he is batting .333 with a .360 OBP. Rodon has been very good recently, but he has also struggled with command at times, so I'm hoping that could lead to some easy points for Escobar.
OF- Jose Bautista (vs. Rick Porcello): $4,000. In 34 career at bats against Porcello, Bautista is batting .412, with three home runs, and a .500 OBP. Over his last 10 games, he is batting .268, with two home runs, and a .362 OBP.
OF- Odubel Herrera (vs. Tanner Roark): $3,800. In 14 career at bats against Roark, Herrera is batting .429 with a .500 OBP. At only $3,800, Herrera's ability to get on base is very valuable to this lineup.
OF- Kris Bryant (vs. Joe Musgrove): $4,900. Over his last 10 games, Bryant is batting .282, with one home run, and a .417 OBP. Bryant is playing at Minute Maid Park, which is a very hitter-friendly stadium for right-handed batters like Bryant. Musgrove has allowed five-plus runs in three of his six starts.
