Doug Fister, HOU at KAN ($7,900): With five pitchers hovering around the $11,000 range, and two more just $2,000 less, there are plenty of big time options available and it's hard to make a case for saving dollars here. But if you're willing to gamble, Fister and the Mets' Bartolo Colon ($7,500 against the Braves) have chances to match the production of the big names. Bad news first: current Royals have had success against Fister, hitting a combined .305 over 210 at-bats, and they lit him up for six runs over 5.2 innings back in April. But Fister is in a groove right now, having won four straight starts while the Astros have won each of his last 10 starts. He's struck out five or more in four of his last five outings, and has allowed two or fewer runs in six straight.
Nick Hundley, COL vs. ARZ ($3,300): Hundley is a lock to be behind the dish after sitting out Saturday and he's swinging a hot bat, owning six hits in his last five games, four of which have gone for extra bases. He owns a .392 wOBP and a robust .313 ISO against left handed pitching, making him worth the relatively high price against Diamondbacks lefty Patrick Corbin.
Anthony Rizzo, CHC at MIA ($2,800): Rizzo's price is down more than $1,000, seemingly due to a two-game absence due to back stiffness which ended Saturday. It's certainly not a perfect matchup with Marlins ace Jose Fernandez on the bump, but Rizzo owns a .432 wOBP and 1.047 OPS against righties and at almost $2,000 less than the top-priced first basemen, there's seemingly too much potential to pass on.
Cesar Hernandez, PHI at SFG ($2,000): There's little appeal amongst second basemen on Sunday so taking a low ceiling, low floor option like Hernandez seems reasonable. Hernandez didn't play Saturday, but he has five hits in his last two games and strikes out at a much lower clip against righties like Johnny Cueto (17.9 percent) than he does against lefties (28.3 percent).
Kris Bryant, CHC at MIA ($2,500): I'm apparently falling victim to name recognition as opposed to matchup play, but the upside versus price is seemingly too great to pass up. Bryant is hitting only .237 in June but has seven home runs in 76 at-bats. He also has an impressive 13.2 percent walk rate against righties on the road which has led to a wOBP of .407, leaving his 20.7 percent strikeout rate as his only downside.
Tim Anderson, CWS vs. TOR ($2,500): Anderson has shown well since making his debut and owns 13 hits in his last 10 games, four of which have gone for extra bases. He's been noticeably better against right-handed pitching, owning a .322 wOBP compared to a .098 wOBP against lefties, and faces a struggling hurler in Marcus Stroman who has allowed 19 runs over 21.2 June innings.
Brett Gardner, NYY vs. MIN ($3,600): This is seemingly a steep price to pay for a player with limited upside, due to Gardner's lack of power potential. But Twins' starter Tyler Duffey has allowed at least four runs in seven straight games and Gardner has a team-high .367 wOBP against right handers while owning nine hits in his last six games.
Carlos Beltran, NYY vs. MIN ($3,800): Clearly, I'm in favor of a Yankees stack, and Beltran offers the power upside that Gardner lacks. 12 of his 19 home runs have come against right-handers and Beltran owns 12 hits over his last seven games.
Andrew McCutchen, PIT vs. LOS ($2,000): I'm honestly not sure I care about trends, slumps or matchups when I see an MVP-caliber player at the lowest price possible. McCutchen homered twice Saturday and has been somewhat successful against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, going 9-for-24 in his career with a long ball and four RBI.
