Danny Salazar, CLE at KC ($43): When bargain hunting for arms, it's rarely bad to pick on the light-hitting Royals, who entered Thursday as the lowest-scoring team in the league by a wide margin (21 runs). Salazar boasts a 33.3 strikeout percent rate and is opposed by Jason Hammel. The Royals are 0-5 in games started by Hammel, scoring only 2.8 runs per game in his starts.
Mike Foltynewicz, MIL vs. ATL ($35): Folty is starting to harness his stuff, and the results are trickling in. Though winless, he's allowed only two earned, eight hits and two walks over his last 13.0 frames, striking out 15. For comparison, he allowed six runs, 14 hits and seven walks over his first 12.2 innings, striking out eight. The Cards rank 25th in runs and strike out at a 21.0 percent clip, giving Foltynewicz a chance to work into the game's final third.
Dustin Garneau, COL vs. ARI ($9): Garneau is locked into a nearly everyday role with both Tony Wolters and Tom Murphy on the disabled list. He's gone 6-of-17 (.353) over the past week. He's a cheap roll of the dice against Zach Greinke, who has allowed a .339 BAA over the past three seasons at Coors Field.
Josh Bell, PIT vs. MIL ($11): Bell doesn't offer the power that many do at first base, but he owns a career .352 wOBA against righties over 164 at bats, giving him a safe floor that could allow paying up for starting pitching in this slate. Facing a struggling Jimmy Nelson, who has allowed 15 earned runs and 33 base runners in his last three starts spanning 15.2 innings, may allow that floor to rise slightly.
Dee Gordon, MIA at NYM ($14): Taking some secondary Marlin bats at a lower cost could prove successful against rookie Rafael Montero, who will make his first start of the year. Montero has allowed seven runs over 6.2 relief innings, allowing a dreadful 19.1 percent walk rate, 16 base hits and a .386 wOBA to lefties. Gordon's modest .334 wOBA should allow him at least one opportunity on the basepaths, where he'll look to make the rookie uncomfortable with his plus speed. Keep an eye on weather here, as New York is set to get plenty of rain at least early in the day.
Jose Ramirez, CLE at KCN ($21): Ramirez has destroyed right handed pitching through the season's first month-plus to the tune of a .470 wOBA and .328 ISO. He'll be right in the middle of the Indians scoring against Hammel, who has allowed eight runs over his last six innings and a .347 wOBA to lefties this year.
Carlos Correa, HOU vs. OAK ($12): Correa's price remains the same as it was last week despite the fact he's hit safely and scored in four of his last five games entering Thursday. That seems to match his price, but the price doesn't match his talent or upside, and until it rises, using a premium player at a discount is prudent. A matchup with Jesse Chavez won't hurt Correa's chances, as Chavez has allowed eight runs and three long balls over his last 13.0 innings and is allowing a .407 wOBA to righties to date.
Yasmany Tomas, ARI at COL ($22): Tomas and the D-Backs will look for revenge against German Marquez, who shut them out over six innings on April 30. But that seems like a fluke for Marquez, who has allowed 20 runs in 24.1 career innings prior. Tomas has feasted on right handed pitchers, posting a .422 wOBA and .339 ISO thus far, and also owns a .393 BA and .947 OPS over 61 career at bats in Coors Field.
Michael Conforto, NYM vs. MIA ($18): Conforto shows no signs of slowing down, entering Thursday riding a six-game hitting streak that has seen him go 12-of-27 (.444). He sports a wOBA of .474 and a hard hit ball rate of 39.2 percent against righties entering a matchup with Tom Koehler, who has struggled against lefties to the tune of a .543 wOBA and five home runs allowed in 50 batters faced.
Michael Taylor, WAS at PHI ($7): Taylor has hit safely in five straight games entering Friday since taking over for the injured Adam Eaton, averaging 10.1 fantasy points in that span. Facing rookie Nick Pivetta, who allowed 10 base runners in five innings in his debut last time out suggests Taylor's hot hitting can continue. Taylor's limited and inconsistent playing time prior to Eaton's injury has led to sporadic success, but at this price and given his current form, it's a great risk/reward proposition.
