Ethier Said Than Done

Andre Ethier prefers hitting against righties and at home. He’ll have the opportunity to do both on this slate so he belongs in your lineup at just $5,400. Here are my picks for Friday, August 28:


Infielders (IF) Outfielders (OF) Pitchers (P)
Josh Donaldson, $11,100 Nelson Cruz, $10,800 Clayton Kershaw, $26,000
Miguel Cabrera, $10,800 Jose Bautista, $10,200 Max Scherzer, $24,400
Troy Tulowitzki, $9,300 Andrew McCutchen, $9,600 Matt Harvey, $22,000
Ian Kinsler, $8,800 Mike Trout (tough price to pass on), $8,400 Sonny Gray, $20,700
Manny Machado, $8,400 Chris Colabello, $7,600 Masahiro Tanaka, $19,800
Ketel Marte, $7,600 Shin-Soo Choo, $7,200 Francisco Liriano, $19,200
Justin Turner, $6,800 Gregory Polanco, $6,800 Cole Hamels, $18,900
Odubel Herrera, $6,400 Jayson Werth, $6,600 Taylor Jungmann, $15,600
Cesar Hernandez, $5,600 Andre Ethier, $5,400 Edinson Volquez, $15,000


Infielders (IF) Outfielders (OF) Pitchers (P)

Miguel Cabrera, $10,800 J.D. Martinez, $10,000 Max Scherzer, $24,400
Edwin Encarnacion, $10,200 Brett Gardner, $9,000 Matt Harvey, $22,000
Ian Kinsler, $8,800 Carlos Beltran, $7,800 Masahiro Tanaka, $19,800
Brian McCann, $7,800 Curtis Granderson, $8,800 Francisco Liriano, $19,200
Mitch Moreland, $7,200 Chris Colabello, $7,600 Cole Hamels, $18,900
Justin Turner, $6,800 Franklin Gutierrez, $7,500 Taylor Jungmann, $16,800
Pedro Alvarez, $6,400 Andre Ethier, $5,400 Raisel Iglesias, $15,000
Danny Espinosa, $6,300 Aaron Altherr, $5,100 Erasmo Ramirez, $12,000


Preferred Stacks: Blue Jays, Yankees, Tigers, Mariners, Rangers, Nationals, Pirates, Astros, Indians, Mets and Orioles

Secondary/Contrarian Stacks: Padres, Phillies, White Sox, Athletics, Brewers, Twins, Dodgers, Diamondbacks, Royals and Reds

Weather Concerns: Slight delay possibilities in the SEA/CHW game but otherwise the weather looks rather clear tonight.

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: Aaron Nola, Aaron Altherr, Jung-Ho Kang, Jayson Werth, Andres Blanco, Greg Bird/Mark Teixeira, Anthony Rendon, Bryce Harper and Russell Martin all just missed the cut but are worthy of consideration tonight.
