MLB Lineup Advice: Outfield (Thursday)
George Springer, SEA @ HOU – FD $3,900 DK $5,200
George Springer went 3-for-12 with 3 walks, 4 stolen bases, and 5-RBI in the series against the San Diego Padres. Springer has a fantastic matchup against James Paxton because Paxton has a 6.86 ERA. Springer needs to be in your lineup today because he is going to have a great game against Paxton.
Bryce Harper, WAS @ NYM – FD $4,200 DK $4,100
Bryce Harper had a solid series against the Atlanta Braves. Harper went 3-for-10 in the series with 4 walks, 2 doubles, and scored 5 runs. Harper looks to continue his success against the New York Mets, and I would recommend playing Harper today.
Nelson Cruz, SEA @ HOU – FD $5,000 DK $5,500
Nelson Cruz was on fire against the Texas Rangers. Cruz went 6-for-12 with a home run, a double, and a triple in the series. Cruz is set to face Scott Feldman who currently has a 4.81 ERA. Nelson Cruz has a great matchup against the Houston Astros, and I look for him to continue that success today.
Alex Gordon, DET @ KAN – FD $3,200 DK $4,900
Alex Gordon went 5-for-11 against the Cleveland Indians with 4-RBI, 2 walks, and a home run. Gordon is facing Alfredo Simon who has a 1.65 ERA. This is going to be a tough matchup for Alex Gordon, but I think that he will be able to continue to get hits and score runs.
Denard Span, WAS @ NYM – FD $3,100 DK $4,000
Denard Span had a great final two games against the Atlanta Braves. In the final two games Span went 7-for-12 with 4 doubles, 2 home runs, 4-RBI, and he scored 6 runs. Span’s price is extremely low for his value. Span needs to be in your lineup tonight against the Mets because I foresee him having another huge night.
Other Players to Consider:
Yoenis Cespedes, DET @ KAN – FD $3,200 DK $4,800
Nick Markakis, CIN @ ATL – FD $3,000 DK $3,700
