All 30 MLB teams will be in action during Tuesday's 7:05 PM ET evening slate. The players below are all positioned to outperform their respective prices, and taking advantage of their combination of matchup and ability should lead to success regardless of contest format…
David Paulino, HOU at KC ($29): Paulino is a high-risk, high-reward option whose combination of ability and opponent makes him tough to pass up at $29. The 23-year-old lasted just four innings in his season debut last Wednesday, but his 8:1 K:BB ratio in that start against the Twins suggests Paulino's ability far surpasses that of pitchers normally found in this price range. Kansas City is scoring 1.11 fewer runs per game than Minnesota at 3.53, so the righty's chances of nabbing a win are strong with the league's second-best offense supporting him.
Max Scherzer, WAS at LAD ($61): Scherzer has been nearly untouchable of late, producing 95.1 fantasy points over his past two appearances. Maintaining that momentum shouldn't prove difficult against this opponent at this location. Dodger Stadium has a 1.07 park factor so far this season, but finished each of the previous five campaigns below .92. Meanwhile, the team that calls that park home has struck out ninth-most in the league at 8.66 times per game. Scherzer's strikeout rate is over 30.0 percent for the third straight campaign, and his career-best season mark of 33.6 percent could well rise even further here.
Tyler Flowers, ATL vs. PHI ($14): Flowers is in the midst of the hottest stretch of his career, having gotten on base in 18 consecutive games en route to a .356/.469/.466 line. The 31-year-old catcher's wOBA against righties has grown to .423, and he's set up for another offensive outburst against Aaron Nola. Nola's past two starts have resulted in nine earned runs allowed over 9.0 innings, and his ERA and WHIP have ballooned to 5.06 and 1.44, respectively, as a result.
Hanley Ramirez, BOS at NYY ($19): Ramirez has a healthy .350 wOBA against right-handed pitchers this season, while Masahiro Tanaka's disastrous 6.34 ERA is the result of a .403 mark allowed to hitters from the right side. Tanaka's wOBA allowed in that split grows to .440 at the hitter-friendly Yankee Stadium (1.10 park factor), while this rivalry game's over/under of 9.0 runs suggests scoring should be plentiful.
Adam Frazier, PIT at BAL ($14): Orioles righty Kevin Gausman is a great candidate to stack against given his unimpressive 5.92 ERA and 1.84 WHIP. Those numbers don't look like they're about to improve anytime soon, either, as he has allowed at least eight hits in four consecutive outings despite lasting a mere 21.1 combined innings over that stretch. The left-handed hitting Frazier has managed a .356 wOBA when facing right-handed pitching, making him a terrific choice in this matchup at just $14.
Jedd Gyorko, STL at CIN ($15): It's no surprise Gyorko is batting clean-up for the Cardinals given his .411 wOBA against fellow righties. The infielder's 17 extra-base hits in 133 plate appearances against right-handers this season look impressive until compared to the 23 homers he launched against them in 2016. Between Great American Ball Park's 1.07 park factor and Tim Adleman's 1.57 HR/9, Gyorko is set up to do serious damage.
Andrelton Simmons, LAA at DET ($15): Despite issuing fewer than two walks for the first time this season, Detroit southpaw Daniel Norris still surrendered three runs in five innings to the Royals in his last start. His 3.98 BB/9 plays right into Simmons' hands, as the shortstop has displayed an elite batting eye in accruing 20 walks to go with just 24 strikeouts thus far. Even without Mike Trout (thumb) in the lineup, Los Angeles' leadoff man is still in good position to score some runs considering this game's over/under is 9.5.
Nelson Cruz, SEA vs. MIN ($20): Cruz is a strong play any time the opposition puts a lefty on the mound, and this date with Twins hurler Hector Santiago is no exception. Santiago enters this contest with an uninspiring 4.76 ERA and 1.38 WHIP while Cruz owns a .348 wOBA in that split this season after mustering at least a .416 mark in each of his previous three campaigns. The veteran slugger's .380 home wOBA against southpaws is more in line with his lofty expectations, and there's little reason not to like him coming off three consecutive multi-hit efforts.
Michael Conforto, NYM at TEX ($21): Conforto is primed for another strong outing as former Met Dillon Gee makes his first start of the season for the Rangers at Globe Life Park in Arlington. The 24-year-old's breakout campaign has featured a .427 wOBA against right-handers, while Gee has allowed a .344 career wOBA to batters from the left side. Playing at a venue with a park factor of 1.02 also raises Conforto's value since half his games take place at Citi Field (0.74 park factor).
Andrew McCutchen, PIT at BAL ($14): McCutchen has started to heat up of late, managing hits in nine of his past 10 games and two walks in the other. While the 2013 NL MVP has failed to approach his career .362 wOBA against righties this season, Gausman's .414 wOBA allowed to his first 168 right-handed batters faced this season makes this a strong matchup nonetheless.
