Hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day weekend but we are back to reality and have a full slate tonight. Since you are probably tired/hungover sitting at work, I am going to make this quick and easy to read. One Stack option that stands out to me is the LA Angels as they get to face Kendall Graveman tonight. The Angels have made some moves to push for the final Wild Card slot and they have paid off as the Angels have been playing some good baseball as of late. Over the last week the offense has been clicking, hitting .291 and an OPS of .861. They just ripped Graveman recently and I believe it should be a similar fate when they square up tonight. With Mike Trout and Albert Pujols having some serious BvP success, they should both be in your lineup. As well as Andrelton Simmons, Justin Upton, Kole Calhoun and CJ Cron, they should be able to rack up some points for your line up.

Zack Greinke, P: $20,100 – His former team the LA Dodgers are in a bit of a funk right now and the DBacks couldn’t be any hotter. Greinke has been consistent all year and should take advantage of the struggling team.
CC Sabathia, P: $14,800 – On a nice run lately with only 4ER allowed over his last 3 starts and the Orioles are a middle of the road hitting team against LHP. They do however offer an opportunity to rack up some strikeouts.
Nolan Arenado, IF: $10,000 – Might be the play of the night, crushes LHP (1.280 OPS .522 wOBA) and is at home. Fantastic match-up vs. Ty Blach who has been much worse on the road, shouldn’t change at Coors.
Asdrubal Cabrera, IF: $7,600 – Has been swinging a hot bat as of late, couple HRs over the last week. With Ben Lively on the mound he should have a couple cracks at one as Lively has struggled to keep the ball in the yard against lefties (1.65 HR/9).
Matt Adams, IF: $6,800 – With news of Freddie Freeman potentially missing some games with hurt wrist, Adams could prove to be a key pick up down the stretch in seasonal format. However if he gets the start tonight he has great value as he has done nothing but hit with his opportunities with Braves.
Steve Pearce, IF/OF: $6,800 – Has always hit LHP much better throughout his career and has been hitting atop a very potent line-up. Eduardo Rodriguez has struggled with the long ball, so this is a plus match-up.
Joey Gallo, OF: $7,800 – The dude just hits home runs and hits them a long way, gets a pitcher with a 2.48 HR/9 against lefties when taking the mound at Atlanta. Julio Teheran will be taken deep tonight.
Matt Joyce, OF: $8,400 – Has been on a tear lately with an OPS over 1.110 in last 10 games and gets Garret Richards in his first start back since beginning of the season. Some rust is expected and he does have a couple career HRs of him.
Byron Buxton, OF: $10,000- Has finally hit his stride over the last month or so, if he continues to stay hot he is a threat to stuff the stat sheet
Only Happy When it Rains
Only two games come with a rain threat tonight, one come in the Orioles/ Yankees game. There is a 25% chance of rain aound first pitch but the game should be good to go. The other game with a rain threat is the Braves/Rangers game, this one has less of a threat but as always check closer to game time.
