Our pitching has really let us down lately, and a little Cinco De Mayo should liven people up and our pitching will once again dominate. Let’s get started with the daily plays!
SUGGESTED PLAYS FOR 5/5/14:
P- Max Scherzer $10,400- Scherzer has been his usual dominant self this season and that’s why he’s the most expensive option at pitcher tonight on FanDuel. In 6 starts this season, Scherzer has gone over 6 innings in all but one of these starts. He is facing the Astros tonight who are a free-swinging team. If you want to pay up on on pitching, you will not regret taking Scherzer in cash games tonight.
P- Jose Quintana $5,600- A cheaper option at pitcher tonight is Quintana. He’s sporting a 4.00 ERA but he’s facing the Cubs tonight, and they are the usual Cubs. Quintana has only 1 win, but could be a great GPP pick tonight to help us free up salary for some bigger bats.
Other Notable Pitchers: Yordano Ventura- $8,400, Scott Kazmir- $8,100, Jeff Samardzija- $7,600
C- Brian McCann $3,300- McCann has been lighting it up as of late. He had yesterday off except for a pinch-hit appearance. Tonight he’s facing Angel’s Weaver who’s struggling to strike people out and he’s sporting a 4.00 ERA. McCann could be in store for a good fantasy night.
C- J.P. Arencibia $2,200- Arencibia is minimum price on FanDuel and that could help us out extremely tonight. Arencibia only has 39 ABs but if Washington plays the numbers, Arencibia has 1 hit in 3 ABs which was a HR off Lyles. Playing at Coors, he could have a great game especially at his price. But make sure he’s starting tonight.
Other Notable Catchers: Carlos Ruiz- $3,400
1B- Prince Fielder $3,200- Fielder is starting to heat up and is another Ranger facing Jordan Lyles at Coors tonight. His price is still pretty low and he’s 3 for 7 with 1 HR, and 2 RBIs. He could be a decent mid-priced power option.
1B- Lyle Overbay $2,500- Overbay has been a surprise for the Brewers and gets to face Mike Bolsinger who has struggled along with the Diamondbacks. He’s sporting a 5.79 ERA and Overbay could make for a cheap option for GPP Play.
2B- Robinson Cano $3,800- Cano has had 10 straight games with positive FP outputs. As I expected, he has lost some power due to moving to Seattle as he only has 1 HR. But he gets on base and has 6 doubles, a triple, and 9 walks with 2 SB this season. He’s facing Kazmir and in his career, Cano is 8 for 31 with 3 HRs, but be careful because he also has 12 strikeouts against the lefty.
