An abbreviated schedule is slated to go Thursday on the diamond, but the match-ups still present us with a couple of value spots.
With that the name of the daily fantasy baseball game, here’s a look at some players that either fit into your Daily Fantasy MLB lineups or don’t for tonight’s slate.

“VALUE PICKS FOR THURSDAY MLB”
It’s been a nightmarish start to the season for Orioles lefty Brian Matusz who last felt the thrill of victory back in June of last season – he’s lost or received a no decision in each of his L/13 big league starts. Unluckily for him, the Blue Jays haven’t taken it easy on him raking him for a 13.09 ERA & .429 batting average against in four career starts. Toronto SS Yunel Escobar is 4-for-5 against him lifetime with a HR & four RBI, and though he possesses one of the higher daily fantasy baseball salaries for the night, it’s still not that much and worth the buy.
Edwin Jackson is one of the most annoying starting pitching enigmas in the entire league! One start, he goes out and throws a complete game in which he allows just two hits and an ER to the Reds, and then follows it up with a laughable 5 IP/5 ER effort at home against the Astros. He does get the benefit of tossing in pitcher’s paradise Petco, but the Padres have had success against him throughout his career tagging him for a 5.40 ERA & .299 BAA. The 1-2 punch of Chris Donorfia and Orlando Hudson could be cheap additions to your daily fantasy roster tonight, as they’re a combined 5-for-5 with a HR, two RBI and a walk versus Jackson lifetime.
“NOT WORTH THE PRICE TAG”
In case you woke up from under a rock on Saturday and didn’t get a chance to read the box scores, Philip Humber tossed a perfecto, and with it, he became only the 21st person in the history of the game to pull off the feat. He’s now allowed just six hits and struck out 16 batters in his 14.1 total innings of work in 2012. David Ortiz is smoking hot right now raking 11 hits (2 HR) and five RBI in his L/20 at-bats, and because of it, his daily MLB fantasy salary continues to skyrocket. You might want to avoid him tonight however, as the slugger has collected just one hit with a strikeout in five at-bats against the righty.
