Daily MLB Fantasy Baseball Plays – Batters 5/12

I’m BAAAAAAAAACK. For those that care, I was on my honeymoon all last week and while I was able to negotiate watching the first 2 rounds of the NFL draft, researching and playing daily fantasy sports was not an option. I’ve really got an itch to play today, so here are my batter picks on a limited game Monday.

I’ve made note of some rain games, while I’m not meteorologist – it didn’t look sustained rain, so while I’d avoid the pitchers in these games, the regular players should be ok – but you’ll want to double check your own weather sources before placing any big bets.  Good luck.


Yadier Molina (STL) vs Travis Wood (CHC) RAIN
In 30 career AB’s he has 12 hits, 4 doubles, 3 HR’s and 11 RBIs off Wood. Nice!

Chris Iannetta (LAA) vs Mark Buehrle (TOR)
In 9 career AB’s he has 4 hits with 2 doubles.
