I let the people down last week, my MLB salary cap lineup may be one of the worst of all time. The Padres pitchers decided that I couldn’t have nice things. Lamet -18 points and Paddack -33 points. But I have gotten back into the lab and I’m telling you I have the recipe for success. Let me make it up to you.
Here is the lineup:
Logan Gilbert at minimum? I’ll take that any day of the week with a matchup against the Texas Rangers. Wins are worth 15 points on OwnersBox so give me that softer opponent. Gilbert is in the 66th percentile in K rate and the 90th percentile in walk rate which is a nice recipe for success in fantasy.
Brandon Woodruff has been one of the most consistent produces on OwnersBox this season, he is the 4th best pitcher on the platform with a season average of 62.2. He has two starts this week, 1 against the Cubs and 1 against the Pirates. Baez, Rizzo and Bryant are hitting a combined .107 in 56 at bats against Woodruff. Even with the high price tag he is a must target for your lineups today.
Keston Hiura is the hottest hitter on the planet right now, 9 RBI’s in his last 4 games. Let’s just ride the wave. Luis Urias is sporting an 11 game hitting streak and meets the lowly Pirates this week as well.
Really a gut feeling on Goldschmidt here but I think he’s gonna heat up as the Cards head to Colorado. Same goes for Stanton, his hard hit percentage is in the 100th percentile and his barrel percentage is in the 95th percentile. We’re gonna see some moon shots from Giancarlo.
The Rockies are on a nice little homestand this week and Yonathan Daza is hitting .375 at Coors Field, at $1500 per game he is a great value. Hunter Renfroe is batting .365 in his last 12 games for the Red Sox out of the 6 spot in the order, the Sox open with a series against the Royals. Finally, Juan Soto may be the most due player on planet earth, just look at his baseball savant below. Let’s ride Soto’s 7 game week to a pay day.
