Daily Dime: Sano, Buerhle and stacking Astros

Here are 10 DFS recommendations for Sunday’s slate on Yahoo but be sure to double-check the weather and lineups before first pitch approaches.

Mark Buehrle, SP, vs. Bos (Hill), $37: He won’t help much with strikeouts, but Buehrle owns a 2.99 ERA at home this season with a 1.10 WHIP. Meanwhile, the Blue Jays have a team OPS of .822 against left-handed pitchers, so there’s a decent shot at a win.

Collin McHugh, SP, vs. Oak (Brooks), $48: He’s struggled a bit lately but returns home to face an A’s offense that’s hardly been a juggernaut against RHP this season. The Astros are huge favorites Sunday (-220), with only one other team favored more.

Yan Gomes, C, vs. CWS (Danks), $13: He has the platoon advantage and should play after resting Friday. Gomes also is 5-for-10 with four doubles and zero strikeouts in his career versus John Danks.

Adam Lind, 1B, vs. Cin (Desclafani), $16: He has a .310/.390/.519 line against righties this season while also recording a .948 OPS at home.

Jose Altuve, 2B, vs. Oak (Brooks), $20: He’s facing a pitcher who’s allowed 30 earned runs over 34.2 inning this year. There aren’t many top options at second base during Sunday’s slate.

Miguel Sano, 3B, vs. LAA (Shoemaker), $17: He remains reasonably priced despite being one of the best hitters in all of baseball since getting called up back in early July.

Ketel Marte, SS, at Tex (Holland), $8: The switch hitter has been better against RHP so far, but Marte has been hitting leadoff lately, and shortstop is a good position to go cheap.

J.D. Martinez, OF, vs. KC (Medlen), $16: He’s been terrific this season yet there are 25 outfielders listed with a higher price tag.

George Springer, OF, vs. Oak (Brooks), $13: He has 13 homers and 14 steals over 328 at bats this season and as previously mentioned, Oakland starter Aaron Brooks has struggled mightily this year.

Rusney Castillo, OF, at Tor (Buehrle), $11: He owns a .347/.385/.500 line against southpaws this season and is dirt cheap.
