Onto Sunday and here’s the first team I’ll be playing.

P Danny Salazar (CLE) $9,000

His strikeouts look good, and coming off of a 23.2 point outing last time.

P Julio Teheran (ATL) $10,000

An ERA of 3.12 and WHIP of 1.02 make Teheran a smart play.

C Russell Martin (TOR) $3,200

Martin is as good a choice as any at catcher for the salary.

1B Hanley Ramirez (BOS) $4,000

Against Graveman he’s 1 for 3 with a double, last 7 days he’s 10 for 23.

2B DJ LeMahieu (COL) $5,000

LeMahieu is hitting .342 for the year, and in Coors Field a solid pick.

3B Kris Bryant (CHC) $5,000

36 homers and a .305 average make Bryant a good play at third.

SS JJ Hardy (BAL) $2,700

Facing Pineda he is 9 for 18 with 3 home runs.

OF Kole Calhoun (LAA) $3,500

Against Iwakuma he is 8 for 30 with two homers.

OF AJ Pollock (ARI) $3,600

Coming back from injury and doing quite well, also at Coors Field so chances for long ball points.

OF Justin Upton (DET) $4,000

Agianst Volquez he is 10/23 with 4 doubles & a home run.

 

Realistically I don’t expect a HR from everybody, but it has to happen to come #1 and this team matches up quite well. It’s not stacked and each player has the potential for double digit points.

This team could easily see 4 home Runs and have two quality starts from its pitching. My hope would be 140 points.
