Infielders (IF) Outfielders (OF) Pitchers (P)
Manny Machado, $9,600 Mike Trout, $10,500 Sonny Gray, $19,900
Brian Dozier, $8,800 J.D. Martinez, $9,600 Jose Fernandez, $19,200
Albert Pujols, $8,800 Brett Gardner, $9,200 Lance Lynn, $19,200
Jhonny Peralta, $8,400 Randal Grichuk, $8,100 Anibal Sanchez, $17,600
Eric Hosmer, $8,400 Kole Calhoun, $8,100 C.J. Wilson, $16,500

Edwin Encarnacion, $6,900 Matt Holliday, $7,600 Edinson Volquez, $13,800
Evan Gattis, $6,800 Preston Tucker, $6,400 Joe Kelly, $10,400
Robinson Cano, $6,800 Jake Smolinski, $4,200 Kevin Gausman, $8,000


Preferred Stacks: Cardinals, Tigers, Yankees, Angels, Astros and Royals

Secondary/Contrarian Stacks: Mariners, Orioles, Athletics, Marlins and Red Sox

Weather Concerns: Small delay concerns in the PIT/KC game otherwise it seems like a pretty clear weather night

Note: I will update the quick picks throughout the course of the day and adjust picks according to who is in/out of lineups.

Bonus: With only nine available spaces it is difficult to fit all the plays for the night but I think a few other Twins bats (Trevor Plouffe and Torii Hunter) are also viable beyond those already listed in the tables above. I also like Travis Snider hitting second for the Orioles against Ivan Nova.
