David Price - $33,285. While Price is a little pricey, he has shown success against the Orioles in his career, with a 2.90 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and a .219 BAA versus Baltimore. Price also has a 4-2 record and a 8.70 K/9 in nine career starts facing the club. He goes up against the rookie Taiwanese left-hander, Wei-Yin Chen, who is 4-1 on the year. It looks as if it will be a pitcher’s duel, but almost everyone will take the proven stud over the unknown pitcher. In his last three outings, Price has put up 4.01 FP/10k. Price will likely do better than that against the Orioles in his first start of June.
Wade Miley - $25,853. Miley could turn out a performance today similar to what Price does. In his last three starts, Miley is 3-0 with a 1.90 ERA. Today, he faces the Padres, who are getting better, but are still vulnerable to pitchers who have been on a roll. Miley doesn’t strikeout too many batters-per-nine, with just 5.50, but you can’t argue with the results. And that is exactly what he is providing StarStreet players with – results – at 5.65 FP/10k. It’s both value and matchup here, which is what this article is all about!
Scott Hairston - $6,622. Hairston has been a pleasant surprise for owners in fantasy leagues, and for StarStreet players with his amazing value. In the last four games in which he has registered an at-bat, he has hit three homeruns with seven RBI and a double. In those games, Scott provided players with an AMAZING 9.64 FP/10k. You can’t possibly find a better value play than him today, so go ahead and play him.
Mike Moustakas - $6,661. Moose has his eight homeruns on the year, to go along with a .272 batting average. In Moustakas’ short career, he has faced Bartolo Colon twice, and recorded a hit both of those times; a double and a single. June has been Colon’s worst regular-season month in his career, with a 4.80 ERA in 61 starts. Moustakas should do well again and improve on his career statistics against both Bartolo and the Athletics.
Michael Cuddyer - $7,653. Cuddyer is one of the most consistent players in baseball over the past few years. He doesn’t get too hot, but he doesn’t get too cold. Right now, he’s warm, with 6.21 FP/10k over the last 31 at-bats. Today, he faces Chris Capuano, a lefty whom Cuddyer has had career success against, batting .273 with two doubles, a homerun, two RBI, and a 4/1 ball-to-walk ratio. While Capuano has looked like a new pitcher this year, keep in mind that they are playing in the Mountains, where the Rockies lead the league in Runs scored, RBIs, triples, Slugging percentage, and total bases for teams playing at home. Michael Cuddyer needs to be started today in Colorado against a pitcher he has had success against.
