We are going to take a trip to California to look for our pitching options tonight. German Marquez ($14,100) is taking the mound in San Francisco and is facing one of the worst hitting teams in the Giants. To make matters worse, they might be without Buster Posey. For the year the Giants are hitting .252 against Righties and a lowly .685 OPS. Marquez should have a good chance at the win and some strikeouts. Meanwhile in Southern California Zack Godley ($21,600) is taking the mound in San Diego. Not to beat a dead horse but streaming guys against the Padres is becoming the norm. Doesn’t mean we cant profit from it, Godley has been at his career best all year and should be no different in San Diego. Padres offer a juicy opportunity to rack up the Ks and the win should be in play. Lets take a look at the rest of the picks…

Justin Bour, IF: $8,400 – The big man has been forgotten about since his performance in the Home Run Derby but he is back and healthy. Nothing scary about the matchup vs. Seth Lugo.

 Jeimer Candelario, IF: $7,600 – Getting his opportunity to play full time and making the most out of it, has been on fire over the last couple weeks (.383 AVG 1.108 OPS)

Scooter Gennett, IF: $7,800 – I don’t know if its the juiced ball theory or scooter just getting a seasons worth of at bats but he is crushing the ball. Especially RHP and he has been on a tear lately.

Charlie Blackmon, OF: $9,900 – Don’t really need to talk up Chuck Nazty, legit MVP candidate and has a career .800 OPS vs. Cueto.

Nelson Cruz, OF: $8,800 – Boom Stick has a career 1.395 OPS versus tonights starter Martin Perez, runs are expected to be scored in this game.

Austin Jackson, OF:$7,800 – Has handled LHP all season long (.342 AVG, .994 OPS) and has a nice matchup vs Tyler Skaggs.

Shin-soo Choo, OF: $7,800 – Quietly producing a very solid season and hitting atop a lineup facing Mike Leake who is due for a dud. Has 18 of his 19 HRs vs RHP.

Austin Hays, OF: $4,800 – Complete value play but the young prospect has been productive in his short stint. Showed a lot of power this year in the minors.

Only Happy When it Rains

We have a coupe games with rain threats tonight, the MIN/NYY game has about a 25% chance of rain. The STL/CIN also has a similar chance, both should be good to go.

Doing Lines in Vegas

The Washington Nationals come in as the biggest favorites of the night at -220, they have Max Scherzer taking the mound. He has been in a bit of a funk lately but should right the ship tonight. The way Zack Godley has been pitching its not surprise the DBacks are decent size favorites over the Padres (-175). The highest run total of the night comes between OAK/DET (10 Runs), it would be smart to take some bats in that game. Biggest value of the night that stands out is the Chicago White Sox at +183, they have been swinging some hot bats as of late and have young ace taking the mound.
