Trevor Bauer, CLE vs. KAN ($46): Bauer has been superb over the last month and a half owning a 28.2 percent strikeout rate over his last nine appearances, spanning 51.2 innings. He's posted a 2.44 ERA while allowing a .324 wOBA in that span, which offers great stability to your lineup, and the Indians are heavy betting favorites, giving him solid win potential.
Sean Newcomb, ATL vs. NYM ($32): Newcomb's strikeout potential (22.7 percent) gives him the opportunity to outperform his price, especially against a Mets team that has nary a bat to fear. New York comes in with a 23.8 percent whiff rate against lefties, and only a 7.4 percent walk rate, which is what has doomed Newcomb.
Tucker Barnhart, CIN vs. PIT ($13): Barnhart has swung well down the stretch, following a .278/.404/.403 August up with a .321/.406/.500 start to September. He offers little in the way of power, going deep just six times to date, but he should find his way to a few hits against the Pirates' Chad Kuhl, who is allowing a .399 wOBA to lefties on the road.
Rhys Hoskins, PHI vs. OAK ($28): It may not be enjoyable paying $3 more for a hitter than the lowest-priced arm, but Hoskins current form and this matchup seem too good to pass on. Hoskins has gone deep five times in five games entering Thursday, and has a .467 wOBA, 191 wRC+ and .407 ISO against righties since being promoted. A's starter Daniel Mengden has a 7.07 ERA overall, while allowing a .381 wOBA to righties.
Whit Merrifield, KC at CLE ($15): Given the options at his position, it appears Merrifield's price has fallen of late just due to a 1-for-10 slump. He's posted a .377 wOBA and 135 wRC+ over 51 September plate appearances, and with only a 7.8 percent strikeout rate, he seems likely enough to put the ball into play against the aforementioned Bauer to outproduce his tag.
Alex Bregman, HOU vs. SEA ($17): Bregman is in a major power drought, seeing his last ball clear the fence on August 23. But he appears to offer a stable floor for cash formats, having hit safely in five straight while carrying a .412 wOBA and 163 wRC+ at home against lefties entering a contest against the inconsistent James Paxton.
Trevor Story, COL vs. SD ($20): The price isn't enjoyable for a guy who's hitting .232 overall, but Story has a .511 wOBA, 205 wRC+, .531 ISO and 1.296 OPS at home against opposite-handed bats. Padres' starter Clayton Richard is allowing a .399 wOBA to righties on the road, making this an on-paper slam dunk.
Avisail Garcia, CWS at DET ($19): I'm not sure what's more amazing; that a White Sox stack makes more than enough sense here, or that the Sox have been so hot that their top bats are priced too high to incorporate a stack. Garcia seems to be the cheapest of the top-tiered options in Chicago's lineup, carrying a .374 wOBA and 135 wRC+ at home against righties, while Tigers' starter Anibal Sanchez has an 8.04 road ERA where he allows righties to post a .496 wOBA and 1.216 OPS.
Andrew McCutchen, PIT at CIN ($13): McCutchen's splits aren't ideal here, owning a .307 wOBA and 87 wRC+ on the road against righties. And while the power upside doesn't exist (no homers, three extra-base hits), buying in to his career totals against Reds starter Homer Bailey helps ease concern over the splits. He's 15-of-48 (.313) in his career against Bailey, who is wise to play against, allowing a 1.131 OPS and .467 wOBA to righties at home.
Teoscar Hernandez, TOR at MIN ($10): Hernandez had nine hits over his last six games entering Thursday, and has a .459 wOBA and 191 wRC+ over 30 plate appearances. He's a cheap buy against Bartolo Colon at worst, and that matchup when paired with the splits suggests some potential.
