Josh Donaldson, $10,400 Hunter Pence, $9,200 Chris Heston, $18,900
Troy Tulowitzki, $9,600 Carlos Gomez, $8,700 Mark Buehrle, $17,400
Brian Dozier, $9,300 Chris Young, $8,400 Kyle Gibson, $16,400

Russell Martin, $8,100 Chris Colabello, $7,200 Scott Feldman, $14,000
Kyle Schwarber, $7,200 Rusney Castillo, $5,700 Aaron Brooks, $11,100
Justin Bour, $5,200 Adonis Garcia, $4,000 Jose Urena, $9,900


Preferred Stacks: Blue Jays, Yankees, Astros, Red Sox and Twins

Secondary/Contrarian Stacks: Braves, Marlins, Cubs, Athletics and Giants

Weather Concerns: Some postponement risk in the MIA/ATL game, but a delay is the more than likely scenario

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: Brock Holt and David Oritz are worth consideration, despite the lefty-lefty matchup. Also, Anthony Rizzo possesses elite skills against RHP, so you can consider him as a contrarian option.
