Yesterday was a big day for big bats. Chicago Cubs’ Rafael Ortega… But every performance is worth noting. Cincinnati Reds’ Max Shrock’s 5 for 5 could be in the top slot on any given day, just not yesterday.
Miami Marlins’ Sandy Alcantara had a stellar outing yesterday, holding the Bombers scoreless fhrough 7 innings. It’s too bad his bullpen let him down as the Marlins blew a 2-0 lead. New Blue Jay Jose Berrios had an impressive debut, fanning 7 in 6 scoreless innings.
Marquee Matchup: Seattle Mariners (56-50; +164) @ Tampa Bay Rays (64-42; -196)
Marquee Pitching Matchup: Honestly, we’re not digging any of them.
While Boston Red Sox center fielder Alex Verdugo technically sits atop the Monday hitting list, he’s hitting .250 over his last 7 games. Not exactly swinging a scorching hot bat. For something closer to a matchstick, Baltimore Orioles’ center fielder is your man. He’s hitting .423 AVG/ .500 OBP/ .654 SLG over his past 7 games. If you move the goalposts another 7 games, he’s hitting .364. That’s your man for your Daily Fantasy roster.
