Better Latos Than Never

Mat Latos makes for a nice mid-tier priced option to fit all the expensive bats on Sunday. Here are my picks for the night slate on Sunday, July 26:


Infielders (IF) Outfielders (OF) Pitchers (P)
Todd Frazier, $10,800 Charlie Blackmon, $10,200 Zack Greinke, $23,200
Joey Votto, $10,700 Mike Trout, $10,000 Jacob deGrom, $22,000
Paul Goldschmidt, $10,100 Carlos Gonzalez, $9,600 Dallas Keuchel, $22,000
Nolan Arenado, $9,900 Jacoby Ellsbury, $9,200 Gerrit Cole, $20,400
D.J. LeMahieu, $8,800 Mookie Betts, $8,400 Danny Salazar, $20,100
Eugenio Suarez, $8,400 Adam Jones, $8,100 Michael Wacha, $18,800
Miguel Sano, $8,400 Ender Inciarte, $7,600 Andrew Heaney, $16,800
David Ortiz, $7,800 Preston Tucker, $6,800 Jason Hammel, $16,800
Cesar Hernandez, $5,600 Ryan Raburn, $4,400 Mat Latos, $15,600


Infielders (IF) Outfielders (OF) Pitchers (P)
Todd Frazier, $10,800 Charlie Blackmon, $10,200 Zack Greinke, $23,200
Joey Votto, $10,700 Mike Trout, $10,000 Jacob deGrom, $22,200
Nolan Arenado, $9,900 Jay Bruce, $10,000 Gerrit Cole, $20,400
Nick Hundley, $8,400 Jose Bautista, $9,900 Danny Salazar, $20,100
Eugenio Suarez, $7,800 Carlos Gonzalez, $9,600 Andrew Heaney, $16,800
David Ortiz, $7,800 Mookie Betts, $8,400 Jason Hammel, $16,800
Kolten Wong, $7,800 Alejandro De Aza, $8,400 Mat Latos, $15,600
Manny Machado, $7,600 Preston Tucker, $6,800 Aaron Nola, $11,200
Pablo Sandoval, $5,400 Ryan Raburn, $4,400 Matt Moore, $8,800


Preferred Stacks: Reds, Red Sox, Rockies, Angels, Diamondbacks, Yankees and Cardinals

Secondary/Contrarian Stacks: Blue Jays, Giants, Orioles, Pirates, Tigers, Astros and Cubs

Weather Concerns: Slight postponement risk in ATL/STL game (which is why Wong is only a tournament option) along with minor delay risks in NYY/MIN, CIN/COL and DET/BOS games. Note: the wind is blowing out pretty hard in Boston which upgrades Boston hitters in an already excellent matchup.

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: All Reds hitters are in play so consider Tucker Barnhart along with Brandon Phillips.
