Mike Bolsinger, SP, at SD (Shields), $6400 at FanDuel: His 2.08 ERA and 1.02 WHIP are unsustainable, but Bolsinger owns a solid 9.1 SwStr% and is pitching for a team that leads MLB with an .805 OPS against RHP. It’s crazy how cheap he’s priced here.
Chris Heston, SP, vs. Ari (De La Rosa), $7400: I’m not a fan recommending a pitcher coming off a no-hitter, but Heston has a 66:18 K:BB ratio over 74.0 innings this season, and the Giants’ offense is underrated. San Francisco is one of the most favored teams Sunday (-140) yet that’s not reflected by Heston’s price tag here.
David Ortiz, 1B, vs. Tor (Estrada), $2500: Going back to the well here, as Big Papi owns an .894 OPS this season versus RHP yet remains priced as a scrub. Only Coors Field has increased BA more than Fenway Park over the last three years.
Mike Moustakas, 3B, at Stl (Lackey), $2400: This is pretty affordable for someone who’s hit .336 against righties this season. Moustakas is also batting .350 on the road and is on pace to finish with 85 runs scored while hitting atop Kansas City’s lineup.
Howie Kendrick, 2B, at SD (Shields), $3300: If you believe in BvP, then look no further Sunday than Kendrick, who’s 16-for-32 during his career versus James Shields. He’s also hitting cleanup in a Dodgers lineup that’s one of the best in baseball.
Jimmy Rollins, SS, at SD (Shields), $2400: Rollins’ slow start to the year has resulted in him slotted lower in the aforementioned Dodgers lineup, but he combined for 45 homers/steals as recent as last year and is facing a pitcher who’s been beaten up by left-handed batters this season.
George Springer, OF, vs. Sea (Elias), $3600: We’ll recommend him for the second straight day, as Springer has raised his OPS nearly 50 points over the past six games. He has a .902 OPS versus lefties this season yet is still priced reasonably here.
Carlos Gonzalez, OF, at Mia (Haren) $3400: He has a .391/.462/1.043 career line over 23 at bats against Dan Haren, so let’s go with him even though the game isn’t played in Coors Field.
Yadier Molina, C, vs. KC (Vargas), $2700: He’s still searching for his first homer of the season, but Molina has a 6:8 K:BB ratio versus southpaws on the year, and he owns a career .768 OPS against them.
Josh Donaldson, 3B, at Bos (Rodriguez), $5000: With all the cheap options recommended, let’s go with an expensive one here, as Donaldson has a ridiculous .419/.438/.791 line with four homers over 43 at bats against left handers this season. Since third base is really thin, he sure seems like the right guy to pay up for.
