Daily MLB Fantasy Baseball Plays – Batters 5/2

If you check out our batter picks yesterday – you should have done very well. I finished in the top 10 in 2 different tournaments, and have a nice bankroll going into the weekend. I see some blogs throw out plays that have no business being in your lineup – remember we analyze the history vs the starting pitcher … not just look at salaries & “big names” like most of these jokers do. Tonight is a big day on daily fantasy websites, so hopefully our plays work out well again.


Nick Hudley (SD) vs Bronson Arroyo (ARI)
The Padres have 3 catchers, so make sure Nick is in the game tonight. He’s batting .500 in 10 AB’s off Bronson, with 1 double and 1 HR.

Buster Posey (SF) vs Mike Minor (ATL)
Posey is from the Atlanta area, so despite being across the country, he should feel at home. In 8 AB’s he has 4 hits with 2 doubles off Minor in his career.

First Base:

Eric Hosmer (KC) vs Rick Porcello (DET)
In 14 career AB’s he has 5 hits, with 2 HR’s and 2 walks.

Daric Barton (OAK) vs Clay Buchholz (BOS)
Make sure he’s playing, as he’s been struggling this season, but could get on track today as he’s 4-9 off Clay with 5 walks in his career.

Paul Goldschmidt (ARI) vs Andrew Cashner (SD)
Little history, but in 6 AB’s he has 3 hits with 1 HR and 1 walk.

Second Base:

Rickie Weeks or Scooter Gennett (MIL) vs Mike Leake (CIN)
You can toss it up again tonight with these two depending on who’s starting, both have decent career numbers off Leake.

Danny Espinosa (WSH) vs Cliff Lee (PHI)
IN 19 career AB’s he has 7 hits, with 3 HR’s and 1 double off Lee.

Ryan Raburn (CLE) vs John Danks (CHW)
Some sites only let you play him in the OF – but he’s listed as 2B on some sites. He’s been ICE COLD recently, but in 37 career AB’s he has 13 hits with 5 doubles, 3 HR’s and 4 walks off Danks.

Third Base:

Miguel Cabrera (DET) vs James Shields (KC)
He’s a decent play almost any night, but tonight he’s got a great matchup. In 43 AB’s he has 18 hits, 7 doubles, 2 HR’s and 4 walks off Shields.

Short Stop:

Alexei Ramirez (CHW) vs Danny Salazar (CLE)
He’s been RED HOT recently, and has 6 hits in 7 AB’s against Danny.

Asdrubal Cabrera (CLE) vs John Danks (CHW)
In 33 AB’s he only has 9 hits, but 2 doubles, 2 HR’s and 1 walk.

Out Field:

Chris Heisey (CIN) vs Wily Peralta (MIL)
Billy Hamilton got hurt and Chris is starting – and he should be cheap. He’s 4-6 in his career off Wily, with 1 HR.

Jason Werth (WSH) vs Cliff Lee (PHI)
In 28 AB’s he has 10 hits, 1 double, 1 triple, and 2 HR off Lee.

Alex Gordon (KC) vs Rick Porcello (DET)
He’s been hitting well recently, in 31 career AB’s he has 11 hits, 2 doubles and 2 HR’s off Rick.
