Sports fans rejoice, we have reached the time of year when baseball ramps up the intensity, football is already in full swing, and just around the corner, we have NBA and NHL ready to start their respective seasons. Opportunity to make some cash is out there for us, now is the time to do so some major research. Tonight we have four games on the evening slate to breakdown, get ready to submit enter on your starting lineups, we’re going Around the Horn!
Zack Wheeler NYM $10,200
Getting exposer to Zack Wheeler and Sean Manaea of the Athletics is highly recommended tonight. Wheeler gets the slight edge as he is the more seasoned pitcher in a groove who is matched against the Miami Marlins. The Marlins are still a bottom feeder in terms of offense, although they have scored 98 runs this month which ranks them 18th, so bad, just not as bad as usual. Wheeler has turned a corner over his last seven starts going 2-0 with a 2.72 ERA in 43 innings of work. His last three have been really solid as he has gone at least seven innings only allowing just a single run in each. Wheeler has fared very well versus the Fish this season compiling a 2-0 record with just two earned runs in 15 innings of work while striking out 16.
Roberto Perez CLE C $3,600
The Indians should handle the White Sox in this pivotal series as it will go a long way in deciding their playoff fate. Jose Ramirez returning from his hand injury has already paid dividends as the Tribe took care of Chicago with ease Tuesday night. His return makes this dangerous lineup even better. They will look to tee off against Dylan Cease who has allowed four earned runs in 6.2 innings versus Cleveland this season. Cease has pitched to a 6.09 ERA over the course of his last seven outings. Perez fills the gap at catcher at a consumer-friendly price. In 16 games this month he is hitting .352 with 13 RBI, a .934 OPS, and a .395 wOBA.
Marcus Semien OAK SS $5,100
Marcus Semien continues to be a force for an Athletics team that is first in runs scored for the month of September with 132. Semien has had a very productive month, in 22 games he has seven homers 18 RBI, 22 Runs, three steals, and a .360 average. Since the 2017 season, Semien has gone 8-for-21 with a 1.076 OPS off of projected starter Felix Hernandez. Hernandez is 0-4 with an 8.10 ERA over his last seven games pitched.
Yasiel Puig CLE $4,200
This Cleveland lineup is quickly becoming one of the most feared lineups in the league. When everyone is healthy there aren’t many holes one through nine. The Tribe is climbing the ranks in several offensive categories. For the month of September, they have scored the fifth-most runs in baseball with 117. Yasiel Puig continues his resurgence since coming over from Cincinnati. In 20 games this month he is hitting .392 with a 418 wOBA and has 14 runs scored.
Josh Reddick HOU $3,500
Keep an eye on the ‘Stros lineup card before this one as there is always a chance that rookie Kyle Tucker vultures a lineup spot from Reddick. Reddick is a cheaper option as he is part of the incredible Houston lineup that continues to dominate. They rank second in runs scored in September with 130. Reddick will need to stay in good form to assure himself a spot in this incredibly deep batting order. He has hit .288 with three homers and nine RBI in 18 games this month.
Good luck to everyone tonight, keep grinding out those lineups!
