MLB Lineup Advice: Outfielders (Wednesday)
Michael Brantley, KAN @ CLE – FD $3,600 DK $4,600
Michael Brantley has a fantastic matchup against the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday. Brantley has a .375 career average against Yordano Ventura, and more times than not, those career numbers hold up. Brantley is a solid play tonight against the Royals.
Matt Holliday, PHI @ STL – FD $3,400 DK $4,400
The St. Louis Cardinals have been able to torch the Philadelphia Phillies pitching this series. Holliday has gone 4-for-7 in the series with 2-RBI and 2 walks. Holliday is going to look to finish out this series strong against the Phillies, and I look for him to succeed once again.
Brett Gardner, TAM @ NYY – FD $3,300 DK $4,600
Brett Gardner is a speedster for the New York Yankees, and the Tampa Bay Rays lack in pitching. This combination leads to a lethal fantasy potential. Gardner has gone 3-for-8 so far against the Rays, but has a stolen base and 2-RBI. Gardner is poised for a big game against the Rays.
Jacoby Ellsbury, TAM @ NYY – FD $4,000 DK $4,500
Brett Gardner’s partner, Jacoby Ellsbury, also looks to have another big night at home against the Rays. Ellsbury has gone 4-for-7 in this series with 3 stolen bases. Ellsbury is the prototypical fantasy player you want because he has the ability to hit home runs, and steal bases. The Yankees outfield is going to have a big night against the Rays tonight.
Mark Trumbo, COL @ ARI – FD $3,200 DK $4,200
The Arizona Diamondbacks have been able to light up the Colorado Rockies pitching staff, Mark Trumbo especially. Trumbo has gone 6-for-8 in the series with a home run, 4-RBI, and 4 runs scored. Trumbo looks to have a fantastic series finale against the Rockies, and I would make sure you have him in your lineup.
Other Players to Consider:
Jay Bruce, MIL @ CIN – FD $3,100 DK $4,500
Hanley Ramirez, TOR @ BOS – FD $4,300 DK $5,000
