My favorite picks are the one’s the bot loves but aren’t the usual suspects. Shohei Ohtani has been nothing short of excellent but you don’t need me to tell you that. The same goes for Fernando Tatis Jr. Off the beaten path is Avisail Garcia, OF: $3,100 – Take this one to the bank. Garcia’s projection is too good to ignore at his price. Throw out what you think you know and lose yourself in the moment. He’s in prime position seriously outperform what it’ll cost you to add him to your roster.

Joe Musgrove, SP: $8,500 – Oh boy has been rolling this season. Other than his record, you have to love everything that he’s been doing. The ERA is low, the strikeouts are high and he’s got a great projection from the bot.
Charlie Morton, SP: $8,200 – Tough to argue with the price to value ratio here. Morton has the fourth-best projection among pitchers today but his price doesn’t quite reflect that. His numbers don’t look all that pretty, but you can have confidence in him today.
Rich Hill, SP: $8,300 – Hill has been solid and comes with a solid projection today but this one is based more on his opponent than anything else. They have one of the worst team averages and have already been no-hit twice this season. That could lead to big things.
Daniel Vogelbach, C/1B: $3,500 – This boy is built different. That hasn’t translated to great season numbers but we don’t care about that. What we do care about is that the bot loves him today. The price of admission is a bit steep, but the reward is worth it.
Omar Narvaez, C/1B: $3,000 – We’re going off the deep end here with a catcher recommendation, but he has a great projection and he’s been swinging a good bat this season. After a day off he’ll be back, nice and refreshed.
Luis Urias, 2B: $3,000 – How would you like to have the bot’s top option at the keystone? Of course, you would. Ride that Coors train all the way to the top.
Brandon Lowe, 2B: $2,800 – I’ll take the power even if the average hasn’t been there. That makes him a boom or bust option, but you gotta risk it to get the biscuit.
Ryan McMahon, 3B: $3,400 – He’s in Coors and that means he’s in play for your lineups. Look for him to keep mashing. Even in a tough matchup, he grades out favorably.
Austin Riley, 3B: $3,100 – The young slugger has been getting it done at the plate and should be able to keep the good times rolling today in a very winnable match-up.
Gleyber Torres, SS: $3,000 – It hasn’t been pretty but he’s starting to show signs of life. The bot likes him today so I do too.
Dansby Swanson, SS: $2,700 – Dan the Man lives. Even though he’s failing to hit for average the power threat is still lurking. Don’t be scared of the match-up and lock him in.
Raimel Tapia, OF: 3,200 – I’m here for the 13 game hitting streak he’s on. He’s been scorching hot over that stretch and I love it. So crack a cold one and watch the show.
Austin Slater, OF: $2,200 – The Giants have been rolling on offense, so much so that I barely even recognize them. Slater hasn’t quite been the driving force but he checks in today with the bot’s seal of approval and a bargain-basement price.
I’m Only Happy When It Rains
If you woke up today hoping for clear skies and sunny horizons, then your wish has been granted. Well… almost. There should be clouds in Colorado, but fortunately, a very low chance of rain, and the winds will be blowing out. That ball will be flying.
