“VALUE PICKS FOR WEDNESDAY MLB”
You’ll have to pay top dollar at the outfield position to install either Josh Hamilton or Matt Kemp into your daily fantasy roster for Wednesday. Mind you, the duo is a combined 1-for-6 lifetime against the respective starter their facing. Still, if you decide to throw caution to the wind and start ‘em, you must find someone to help ease the salary burden. Look no further than Shin-Soo Choo who comes at a reduced rate and has done nothing but make life a living hell for his opponent – Luke Hochevar. In 25 career at bats against the righty, Choo has hit safely 15 times with four doubles, three HRs and 12 RBI. He already touched him for a pair of singles and two RBI when these teams met in KC’s 2012 home opener.
The Miami Marlins will have their second baseman – Omar Infante – back in the line-up starting Tuesday night, but we really like the match-up he brings to the table when squaring off against R.A. Dickey in Hump Day’s nightcap. The diminutive two-bagger has reached safely in half of his career 22 at-bats vs. the knuckle-baller (.500) and even left the yard once. Batting in back of Hanley Ramirez and in front of Gaby Sanchez – who are a combined 11-for-30 vs. Dickey (.367) – should offer ample opportunities for him to produce a solid daily fantasy baseball tally in this spot.
“NOT WORTH THE PRICE TAG”
Don’t even entertain the thought of backing two of the Rays highest priced players in Evan Longoria and B.J. Upton when they get in the batter’s box to take their hacks against Angels ace C.J. Wilson. The southpaw is 4-0 with a 2.25 ERA & .172 BAA in five career starts vs. the Rays so runs will be tough to come by regardless. “Longo” has collected just a pair of hits in 14 plate appearances with five strikeouts (.143), while Upton only reached base via four walks failing to hit safely in 14 attempts to go along with four Ks (.000).
