Freddie Freeman, 1B, at Ari (Collmenter), $3200 at FanDuel: Freddie was a relatively easy call on Monday (3-for-5, HR), and he's back at the same price, facing an even sketchier right-handed starter. You probably won't be surprised to learn that Freeman is 8-for-15 in his career against Collmenter with two doubles, one bomb and three RBIs. Also, he's homered in three of his last four games, so you're catching him during a power surge.
Lance Lynn, P, vs. Mil (Cravy), $8800: I won't try to argue that Lynn has been flawless this season (1.35 WHIP), but it's tough not to like this matchup. He's opposed on Tuesday by Tyler Cravy, a sixth-year global studies major at UW-Milwaukee who won a contest, so they're letting him pitch. (No, that's a lie. He's a 25-year-old right-hander who'd been having an ordinary year at Triple-A.) Lynn pretty clearly has a shot at a useful stat-line against the 18-win Brewers.
Billy Burns, OF, at Det (Simon), $3300: Burns is binging of late, going 14-for-34 over his last eight games with a homer, two doubles and three steals. He's working on a streak of four straight multi-hit games, and he's reaching base at a .373 clip for the year. No way Simon shuts him down.
Andrelton Simmons, SS, at Ari (Collmenter), $2300: Yeah, I know ... I'm repeating myself, again. I should probably just craft a cut-and-paste blurb for Simmons. But how can you not like this price? He's batting a perfectly respectable .277 for the year, plus he has four multi-hit games in his last six. And he's working on a 10-game hitting streak. And he went 3-for-5 with a double, one RBI and a run-scored on Monday. And he's facing Collmenter today.
Noah Syndergaard, P, at SD (Kennedy), $8300
: An excellent price on a talented young pitcher, and the Pads are seeing him for the first time. Syndergaard has allowed just one earned run and one walk over his last three starts (19.1 IP) while striking out 16 batters. He's opposed by Ian Kennedy, a man who's yielded 20 earned runs and seven homers over his last 19.1 innings.
Martin Prado, 3B, vs. CHC (Hendricks), $2300: Love this price. Prado went 2-for-4 on Monday, and he's gone 7-for-16 with a pair of doubles over his past four games. Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks has been solid over his last two starts, but he doesn't miss many bats (6.2 swinging-strike rate).
Howie Kendrick, 2B, at Col (De La Rosa), $3400: Kendrick is 5-for-11 against De La Rosa, and he's now 10-for-23 in his career at Coors Field, following a terrific night on Monday (2-for-6, HR). If you're looking for a cheap way to attach yourself to this LAD-COL series, here it is.
Dee Gordon, 2B, vs. CHC (Hendricks), $3600 : Hendricks is a right-handed pitch-to-contact type, and Gordon is a left-handed hitter capable of beating out pretty much any ball in play. Gordon is also slashing .370/.397/.436 for the season. This feels like a two-hit performance, with a steal and a run. Minimum.
Andre Ethier, OF, at Col (Hale), $3100: Be careful to get Ethier in the right game, because the Rockies and Dodgers play a double-header on Tuesday. You want him against the right-handed Hale, not the lefty De La Rosa (3-for-22 career, with 8 Ks). Ethier homered and tripled in a 2-for-5 performance on Monday.
Jimmy Rollins, SS, at Col (Hale), $3100: Yup, one last Coors Field option on the Tuesday slate. Rollins is reasonably priced in this one, and he's been coming around at the plate in recent weeks. He went 2-for-4 with a homer and a walk on Monday. Again, be careful here; Rollins isn't in the lineup for the early game.
