DATA DEPENDENT DAILY (MLB): It’s a toss up between Vlad Guerrero Jr. and Brandon Crawford.

It was a short night last night with only three games scheduled so it’s slim pickings this morning. That said, Max Stassi and Sterline Marte had almost identical nights, separated by 0.200 in the OPS column.

With three games on the ledger, top pitching performances pretty much include anyone who held a baseball. However, the 5 IP minimum means that the cast of characters gets even narrower. To top it off, the two players who qualified barely made it to the minimum. Thank god it’s back to normal tonight.

Fantasy: Vladimir Guerrero Jr. tops the Tuesday hitting chart with a 1.581 OPS. He’s managed to not just match his hot start but surpass it. He’s hitting .348 in his last 7 games and .346 in his last 15. Brandon Crawford has upped his game and is hitting .350 during his last 7 starts. We’d go with Vlad Jr. on our Daily Fantasy team but only just. Crawford has been a little more consistent racking up the FPTS.
