STARTING PITCHERS

Washington NationalsDoug Fister – The Nationals’ Fister makes his first start of the season and is our value pitcher Saturday night at 8.6k on FanDuel. He faces the Phillies with a game total at just over 6 1/2, which could mean just three runs for the hosts.

POSITION PLAYERS

Chicago White SoxAdam LaRoche  – The White Sox’s LaRoche  is 9-for-13 with three walks and six RBI lifetime off of Twins’ veteran right-hander Mike Pelfrey.

Chicago White SoxAlexi Ramirez – The ChiSox’s Ramirez is 5-for-13 BvP against Pelfrey with a pair of doubles. We have the White Sox as the highest expected run-scoring team in the American League on Saturday.

Oakland AthleticsBen Zobrist – The A’s Zobrist is 6-for-13, with three doubles and three walks in his career off of Seattle left-hander A.J. Happ. Zobrist is quickly down to 3k on FanDuel.

Los Angeles AngelsMatt Joyce – The Angels’ Joyce has a 14-for-34 career-mark against Kansas City’s Jeremy Guthrie with six extra-base hits, five walks and seven RBI.

Colorado RockiesNick Hundley –  Hundley has a 7-for-13 mark against the Cubs’ Jason Hammel with four extra-base hits. Hundley, however, has seen as quick salary jump of $500 over the last two games given his good start and apparent role behind the dish for Colorado.
