This article is part of our FanDuel MLB series.
Aaron Nola, PHI vs ATL ($9,000): Nola has been mentioned in the space a few times this season but not as much as fading the Braves offense has. While the price seems high, there are six other pitchers at this price or higher. The Braves continue to be the most anemic offense in the league and a team to target. Nola has exceeded expectations this season with a 24.8 percent strikeout rate and his xFIP sits at a tidy 2.39. In addition, a 66 percent strand rate is rather low, suggesting an improvement in that department is in store. The Braves carry the second-worst wOBA against right-handed pitching at .273 and have scored the second-fewest runs as well.
Derek Norris, SD vs LAD ($2,300): This is a great spot to punt given the lack of great options at the position and the value of getting Norris at this price. He has gotten off to a slow start that has depressed his price, but he has hit lefties extremely well in his career, posting a .362 wOBA, a very high mark for a catcher. On the mound facing Norris will be Scott Kazmir, who has given up a .391 wOBA to right-handed hitters on the road this season.
Adam Lind, SEA at CIN ($2,300): Lind may be heating up at the right time, with two home runs in his last four games. A move out of Safeco Field to Great American Ballpark helps his cause and Dan Straily owns a .326 wOBA against lefties for his career. Also, in a small sample, Lind has gone 3-for-6 against Straily and should have ample RBI opportunities hitting in the middle of the order.
Jason Kipnis, CLE at BOS ($3,700):Clay Buchholz has been a mess this season, posting a 6.11 ERA and 1.47 WHIP. He's struggled particularly against left-handed batters, who have a .387 wOBA against him this season. Kipnis has come around at the plate scoring 3.0, 12.2, 16.2, 16.2, 21.7, 3.0, 18.7, 18.5 and 15.5 fantasy points over his last nine games, respectively. Overall, the Indians' offense has come alive, with 43 runs over their last four games.
Danny Valencia, OAK vs. NYY ($3,300): There a few different factors working in Valencia's favor, as the Athletics play the second game of their series with the Yankees. Valencia has caught fire over the last week with a 1.761 OPS, including six home runs. He's always raked against left-handed pitching and has a career .381 wOBA against southpaws. CC Sabathia is making his first start off the DL and struggled against right-handed pitching to the tune of a .370 wOBA last season.
Marcus Semien, OAK vs. NYY ($2,800): The same Sabathia numbers apply to the right-handed Semien, who has a .395 wOBA this season against left-handed pitching and finished 2015 with a .386 at home against them as well. Don't be afraid to pair both Valencia and Semien together as Sabathia likely isn't close to 100 percent coming off the DL.
Stephen Piscotty, STL vs. ARI ($3,400): Many of the Cardinals hit lefties well, including Matt Holliday ($2,700) and Randall Grichuck ($2,900) and get that matchup Friday against Patrick Corbin. Piscotty has a .505 wOBA this season (48 plate appearances) against lefties but that follows up his 2015 campaign when he raked against them for a .376 mark. Corbin has been up and down this season but over the last two years he's struggled against righties, allowing a .356 and a .340 wOBA, respectively.
Curtis Granderson, NYM vs. MIL ($3,000): The Mets look like a very stackable team at home given the great matchup against Wily Peralta, who has given up a .353 wOBA against left-handed hitting for his career, including .391 this season. Granderson has a career .369 wOBA against right-handed pitching but he's has gone 5-for-8 against Peralta with two doubles and two home runs.
Cameron Maybin, DET vs. TB ($2,800): With all of the attractive DFS options in Detroit there are going to be many days that Maybin is an afterthought. He's literally hit the ground running in his first three games back with the Tigers swiping a base in each game. Maybin has scored 15.2, 18.7 and 18.2 fantasy points in those three games, respectively, and he gets a decent matchup against Matt Andriese, who has pitched well in two starts but going to Detroit isn't an easy task, and his 4.11 ERA last season suggests he's nothing more than an average pitcher.
