Daily Dime: Papi and Panda, back in our fantasy plans

Daily Dime: Papi and Panda, back in our fantasy plans

It's a loaded Monday schedule, which is nice, but we have a few meteorological complications. So please be prepared to tweak lineups as needed. Let's hunt for bargains...

[Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football is back: Sign up for a league today!]

David Ortiz, 1B, vs. Atl (Perez), $2500 at FanDuel: Ortiz, it seems, is finally getting himself right. He's 5-for-14 over his last four games with three homers, seven RBIs and four walks. On Monday, he'll face a young right-hander with a 1.44 WHIP. Left-handed batters are slashing .274/.333/.419 against Perez. All five extra-base hits allowed by Perez over his 33.1 innings have been to LHBs.

Pablo Sandoval, 3B, vs. Atl (Perez), $2300: Panda has four multi-hit efforts in his last seven games, and he's delivered extra-base hits in four straight. He's been a total disaster against left-handed pitchers to this point in the season (.262 OPS), but he's had no issues with RHPs, slashing .315/.380/.503. At this price, he's almost a necessary buy for anyone trying to squeeze Tanaka ($9600), Keuchel ($9700) or Liriano ($9400) into a lineup.

Carlos Rodon, P, at Pit (Liriano), $7200: Rodon is striking out a batter per inning, and he's allowed no more than a single earned run in each of his last four starts for Chicago (with only one win to show for it, maddeningly). Walks haven't been much of a worry in recent starts, either (5 BB, 19 Ks in 18.1 IP). This price doesn't reflect Rodon's talent level.

Denard Span, OF, at TB (Ramirez), $3100: Span is 8-for-23 over his last five games with two walks, three steals and four runs scored. He's slashing a ridiculous .343/.384/.530 against RHPs this year, so Erasmo (4.96 ERA) shouldn't pose an impossible problem.

Wilmer Flores, SS, vs. Tor (Buehrle), $2400: Flores is a flawed player, sure (.285 OBP), but he offers significant pop (10 HR) and he's facing a hittable left-handed starter on Monday. Buehrle hasn't K'd more than five batters in any game this season, and he's only reached that total once.

Jace Peterson, 2B, at Bos (Porcello), $3800

: You really can't argue with Peterson's recent production. He has five multi-hit games in his last seven, with four doubles, one homer and a steal during that stretch. He's leading off for Atlanta, facing a guy who's allowed 20 earned runs over his last four starts.

Andre Ethier, OF, at Tex (Gallardo), $2900: Gallardo has basically pitched to his career averages this season, though the velocity and K-rate have slipped a bit from his best years. Ethier has generally enjoyed facing him, going 8-for-21 with two doubles, a triple and a homer. He carries a friendly price tag here, and he's hit well over the past week (7-for-19, 2 HR).

Salvador Perez, C, at Mil (Lohse), $2700: Kyle Lohse is on the hill, so you know what to do. Perez is rested, plus he's been a 2-for-4 machine in recent days. (Game log here.) He's also homered four times in his last seven games.

Mike Moustakas, 3B, at Mil (Lohse), $2400: Another cheap way to pick on Lohse, a righty with a 1.41 WHIP. Lohse has already allowed 15 home runs this season in just 74.2 innings; he gave up just 22 long balls last year over 198.1 frames.

Eugenio Suarez, SS, at Det (Sanchez), $2200: If the rain holds off in Detroit, Suarez is a quality option at a minimum price. He's a 23-year-old with on-base skills and respectable pop for his position (minor league stats here), and he'll be an everyday player for Cincy with Cozart sidelined.
